PFR Player Name Linker / Add your Site to our Player Newsfeeds
With the season kicking off, it's time to showcase our newsfeeds on PFR player pages, showing the latest player news from KFFL, injury reports and links to relevant blog posts. If you have a blog or website with an RSS feed you can add your site to relevant player pages as well. Our Player Linker Tool will take your blog posts as you've written them and run them through a program and add links to PFR player pages where appropriate. So while you don't have the resource to create your own player pages for your site, you can treat us as your site's statistics partner, linking Eli Manning's name to our stats or any player all the way back to Y.A. Tittle and Otto Graham.
If the links then appear in your rss feed and you let us know to look for them, we'll pull them out of your feed and then link back to you from Eli's page, or Otto Graham's or whomever you link to.
If you help your users find our great content, we'll help our users find yours. And best of all it is all automated except for one click of an easy-to-install bookmarklet. Check the Player Newsfeeds page for details. This link share will also work for tables you share using the SHARE tooltip found above every stats table on the site.

You may have noticed that we've added Game Previews for the new season. These pages will contain stats and info on the upcoming matchup, they'll contain Win Probability graphs during the game itself (updated after every quarter), and the morning after the game they'll turn into the familiar boxscore pages you know and love (with new WPA graphs). Enjoy, and thank goodness for football!!!

Due to datafeed issues, our College Football stats won't be updated until later in the week at the earliest. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we hope to get everything up and running (better than ever, in fact) quickly. Thanks for your patience.

I'm working on fixing a lot of bugs today (family's out of town, so I'm getting some back work done).
- Added a PH/PR option to the positions for the batting season finder.
- Allowed you to search on Offensive and Defensive WAR on the Season finder.
- On minor league player pages, there is now a level summary showing the totals by level in rank order of the level. Before it was the ordered by the # of seasons in each level.

Just a fun add to the site that didn't take too much time. Of course it probably isn't fun if you are the all-time worst FG% shooter.

Japanese Baseball History - Baseball-Reference.com.
We are very pleased to announce that we have added complete NPB stats back to the start of professional baseball in Japan in 1936. This work was compiled from existing sources by Ted Turocy (creator of the Chadwick Baseball Bureau). These stats are updated daily, so you can track Wladimir Balentien's chase of Sadaharu Oh.
This data was also incorporated into our MLB players pages. So if you go to Ichiro's page, you will now see a "Show NPB/Minors" link above his batting stats and clicking on that will show you his NPB stats along with his mlb stats.
