Search for Walkoff Wins/Loss in Game Finders – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on May 23, 2014

I'm not sure why it took me 8 years to do this, but you can now search for walkoffs in the game finder play index tools.

Using the game finder you can find all of the walkoff wins and losses for your team. Using the controls at the top you can even see who's had the most walkoff wins or losses in a season. Please keep in mind that this is 100% complete back to 1974 and then will get progressively less complete back to 1940, though still pretty good. You can always check our coverage page to figure out what might be missing. When searching for walkoffs, we will also print out the type of play and the batter and pitcher involved, since we know that's what you want to see.

Pitchers in the Field and At the Plate added to Batting Game Finder– Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by admin on May 21, 2014

Folks seemed to like the hitter's pitching option, so I've added a pitcher's in the field option. Check the box shown below and then click the set of positions you want above to see an output. For instance, get a list of PH home runs by pitchers.

Non-Pitchers Search Option added to Pitching Game Finder – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by admin on May 21, 2014

We've gotten a couple of requests for this, and it's true that non-pitcher pitching is WAY up this year despite 7 and 8 man bullpens and reduced run scoring. The option is in the third column. See below:

Screenshot 2014-05-21 16.30.27

There is a caveat on this. We are including players who mostly played as position players in this list, so searching for 1915 will return a whole lot of Babe Ruth and similarly Rick Ankiel and Brooks Kieschnick will show up in 2004 searches. Be warned.

Split Finder Allows you to Excludes Incomplete Results when PBP is Missing

Posted by sean on May 5, 2014

This is a subtle one, but as you may know play-by-play and ergo certain split data like platoon info and count data is not complete back to 1914. We have 100% of play-by-play back to 1973 and the 98%+ back to 1954. Details Here.

So we are now allowing you to exclude the split seasons from the Play Index Split Finder where incomplete totals may occur, so a pre 1973 platoon split, or a pre 1988 by count split.

See the location of this checkbox below.
