Justin Kubatko Leaving Sports Reference

Posted by Justin Kubatko on August 20, 2013

I am sad to announce that after six years, five websites, and hundreds of thousands of lines of code, my tenure at Sports Reference will come to an end this week. More information can be found on my new blog, Statitudes. Thanks to all of the users who have supported the sites that I ran.

Errata: Minor Stats Corrections Coming to the Site

Posted by admin on July 15, 2013

By the nature of our update process these will take a week or two to roll out to the site, but they'll get there eventually. This note below is from one of our data producers and represent a set of updates we'll be incorporating into the site.

One of the great aspects of the baseball research community is their dogged determination to get things right even it is a mixup between Tom Maher and Frank Mahar in 1902.

Playoff Game Finders

Posted by Neil on January 4, 2013

In anticipation of the playoffs kicking off tomorrow, here's a reminder that you can use the Pro-Football-Reference Play Index to search for playoff games from the past and present.

The Player Game Finder will return all individual games that meet the criteria you select. Try searching for the most yards from scrimmage in a playoff game (Keith Lincoln alert), or use the "Cumulative Season Games" and "Cumulative Multi-Season Games" modifiers to group multiple playoff games in the same postseason or find career leaders.

Meanwhile, the Team Game Finder can help you find team playoff games under various criteria, like the most pass attempts in a playoff game or the biggest point differential by a team that trailed at some point in a postseason game.

You can get the most recent results the morning after the games are played, so by Sunday we should have Saturday's results loaded in. Just be sure to set "Game Type" to "Playoffs" on each tool, and have fun!
