Relatives Added to PFR

Posted by Neil on January 22, 2013

Relative information is something we've had on Baseball-Reference and Basketball-Reference for a while, but we haven't had the data for football... until now, that is.

Yesterday we added some rudimentary relative data to PFR player pages (check out the Matthewses if you want a great example). It's by no means complete, but we'll be adding more in the coming weeks and months. And we'd like your help -- if you know of players or coaches who are related but aren't listed on the site, email us and we'll get the info added. Thanks!

PI Season Finders with “Rough” Rookie Status Option

Posted by admin on January 21, 2013

Batting Season Finder -- - Baseball-Reference.com

I've added search options to the pitching and batting season finders which apply the at bat and innings pitched minimums for rookie status. This leaves out the "less than 45 days service time prior to Sept. 1" requirement which I simply can not compute at this time (nor do I ever expect to).

I've retroactively applied these standards back to the 1871 seasons, so some simple searches are now possible.

Play Index Inning Scoring & Lead Change Tool

Posted by admin on January 17, 2013

2012 Team Scoring and Leads Summary - Baseball-Reference.com

This tool has been around for awhile, but I just updated the look to use tables rather than pre-formatted text (I think there is only one tool left that is pre-formatted) which adds the embed, share and sorting tools into the mix.

Event Finders with Batted Ball Types

Did you know that the Pirates gave up the most ground ball bunt singles last year (30) and the Rangers and Brewers the fewest (10)? Or that Matt Cain gave up 10 all by himself.

You can now find information like that on the Play Index Event Finders as we've added the type of batted ball in our DB to the event finder outputs.

All 579 bunt ground ball singles in the MLB last year
