BBR: Two Feature Updates

Posted by Justin Kubatko on April 17, 2012

This morning I updated a couple of things on Basketball-Reference.com.

First, you can now select rows to sum on the player game logs. For example, go to Michael Jordan's 1986-87 Game Log. Suppose you want to see Jordan's statistics for his first five games that season. To do this, click on the row for his first game of the season (the row should now be highlighted in blue), then click on the row for his fifth game of the season. A pop-up will appear with Jordan's per game averages for those games.

Second, I added an option to the Player Game Finder that will allow you to search by the player's game number rather than just the team game number. For example, here are the highest scoring debuts of the last 10 seasons.

This was suggested at the SABR analytics conference and since I was rebuilding the db, I decided to add it. It appears just below the outs page on all of the pitcher, batter, team and league splits. I've linked to the 2011 MLB overall splits above. Split suggestions are always welcomed.

1918 Box Scores and Play by Play - Baseball-Reference.com

Thanks to the good folks at RetroSheet we have added 1918 box scores, splits, and game logs to the site.

Here is Walter Johnson's dominant 1918 season in gamelog form.

We are still in the process of updating the splits and the Play Index with 1918 data, but that should happen later today, Murphy willing.
