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.

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:
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.

Just a quick note that we've added Shooting Hand as a query option for our Player Season Finder.
We understand that any historical list like this contains some inaccuracies, so if you recognize any mistakes or omissions please let us know.
There are a few oddities like Tristan Thompson and DeAndre Jordan, who have switched shooting hands or who alternate depending on the type of shot attempt, that we can't fully account for. Though Jordan tends to dunk with his right hand, we consider him a left-hander.
Many thanks to former colleague Neil Paine and all of those whose research he referenced for compiling this list.

Just a note that we've added the same shooting table to our league season pages that we previously added to our player pages and our team pages. This is the easiest way to see team by team disparities in offensive approach. True to form, the Rockets take the fewest 2-point attempts in the 10-16 & 16+ foot range. In fact, league-wide those proportions have decreased every season except for one since 2000-01, the first season for which we have shot coordinates.
The easiest way to get to our league season pages is to click on (or mouseover) the 'seasons' link at the top of our site, then click on 'Summary', or a link for an individual season (e.g., '2013-14)

Due to a need to replace a faulty power supply the sites will be down for hopefully just a few minutes tomorrow afternoon as the power supply is being replace. The work is scheduled to occur sometime between 1 and 3 pm ET and should affect only our CFB, CBB and Olympics sites and this blog. Should a longer outage be necessary or any additional sites be affected, we will post any updates to our twitter accounts.

Just a note that we've added several new features to make basic team and opponent statistics more accessible.
Most significantly, we've added year-by-year tables for team totals, team per-game, opponent totals, and opponent per-game statistics to our franchise section.
The easiest way to find these pages is to click to a team's season summary page or their Franchise Encyclopedia page and look for the "Year-by-year" links...
Once you've clicked to the new pages, notice the option to toggle between the totals (or per-game) statistics, and a summary of the team's ranking in each stat category, as well as a year-by-year summary of how each season compares to the season prior...
We've made several other small changes, too. We've added per-game statistics and year/year %s to the team season summary pages, and added Top WS (Win Share) players to each season of our Franchise Encyclopedia, so that it's easy to scan through the years and identify, for example, the Jordan-era Bulls, or the Olajuwon Rockets.

Happy Birthday to us! It's been a good run and we'd be looking for that one last big veteran deal if we were an NBA player. Hopefully we have at least ten more years in us.
The vast majority of the credit for the site goes to Justin Kubatko, who you really should be following over at Statitudes.com. Thank you for all of your support through the years.

Not to be outdone by baseball's addition of manager challenges, we have added a full list of challenges to the bottom of coaching history pages as well as season and career challenges & challenges won in the coach career totals. These numbers are not official (they are just pulled from the game accounts in the NFL gamebooks), but they're still a good barometer of who is bad (Dan Reeves was just 4 for 28 on challenges) and who is good (Mike Tomlin is 24 for 44).

The pitching table is getting pretty wide on the team and player pages, so we've added a new little twist to our player pages (soon to be on team and league pages) where if you hold your mouse over the save column for a pitcher a little box pops up and it will show you the blown saves, save opps, save situations and holds for that pitcher. See the screenshot below.
This data is already on the "More Stats" page linked just above the pitcher's primary stats, but not everyone makes it onto those pages.

If you've clicked around our college basketball site recently, you may have noticed that we've added player high schools and uniform numbers for all D-I players that have played during the last two seasons.
It's a general policy to list the last high school or prep school that a player was at before attending college, so please let us know if you find any mistakes.
