Avg Time of Game added to Miscellaneous Team Stats Page – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on April 14, 2014

Example: 2014 Major League Baseball Attendance & Miscellaneous - Baseball-Reference.com.

Our game time data is more or less complete back to 1947, so we have added avg time of game to the Attendance & Misc. option under the "Other" tab on the year-league pages.

Hat Trick Leaders now on Hockey Reference

Posted by Hans Van Slooten on April 14, 2014

We have added hat trick leaderboards to Hockey Reference. While we only have game logs going back to the 1987-88 season, we are able to do some magic to also include the career hat trick leaders. To see this functionality, you can go to the menu item Leaders > All NHL & WHA Leaders & Records:

Manager & Umpire Challenges Added To Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on April 11, 2014

Baseball-Reference.com - MLB Stats, Standings, Scores, History.

On the front page of the site, we now give a running total of the number of plays challenged along with links to the team-by-team totals and also to the manager pages.

challenges

On the Manager pages, we actually show the details of each challenge along with the scoring change (if appeal is successful) and leverage prior to the play. It would be nice to show the WPA change when there is a successful challenge, but our system would just take too many modifications at the moment to implement that quickly.

Player Totals for Teams on Hockey Reference

Posted by Hans Van Slooten on April 10, 2014

A minor, but useful addition to the team pages today are the player totals for the teams that they played on. This is a feature on the other Sports Reference sites, and it finally found its way to Hockey Reference.

As always, your feedback and suggestions are appreciated.

UPDATE (2014-04-14):

We have added this feature to the coaches' pages as well:

Historical Standings Finder

Posted by David Corby on April 10, 2014

Just a note that we've unveiled a new search tool that lets you look up standings for the NBA, ABA, and BAA on any date in history, as well as team and opponent stats as of that date.

Recall those halcyon days when the 4-2 Sixers led the Atlantic Division, or marvel at the post-All Star collapses of the '04-05 season, when the 30-21 Cavaliers, 28-24 Magic, and 26-24 Lakers would all eventually miss the playoffs.

You can reach the search tool by going to www.basketball-reference.com/friv and clicking Historical Standings...

 

standings_link

 

Simply enter the date on which you want to know the standings, choose the league, and click Find Standings. Teams with asterisks were eventual playoff teams.

D-League Recalls and Assignments

Posted by David Corby on April 7, 2014

Just a note that we've added D-League assignments and recalls to our player pages and also to our team transactions pages.

Also, links from the text will take you to the affiliate's team page on our D-League site, where you'll find a transactions log that shows all players that have been recalled to and assigned from the NBA during the season.

We have player recalls and assignments going back to the 2005-06 season, when the affiliate system began.

Player Photos and Name Pronunciations on Hockey Reference

Posted by Hans Van Slooten on April 7, 2014

You may have noticed that we added player photos in the past couple of days:

In addition to these, we have added pronunciations for many player names. You can see all of them on the Pronunciation Guide page. Hopefully this helps you with some of the harder to pronounce names.

As always, let us know if you have any questions or feedback.

Player High Schools Added

Posted by Mike on April 4, 2014

Just finished a project to add player high school listings for 22,000+ professional players. Players for whom we have data will now have their high school listed on their player pages. We have state-by-state listings from Alabama to Wyoming (and even foreign high schools) and we have listings of current and former players and their stats at high schools from Long Beach Polytechnic to Canton McKinley.

WNBA and D-League Updates

Posted by David Corby on April 1, 2014

Just a note that we've updated our WNBA stats to include the 2013 season. Likewise, we've updated our D-League stats for the current year through yesterday's games, and will continue to update these daily through the rest of the season (which ends this month, yes!)

You've probably noticed that we maintain separate pages for a player's D-League stats. You can get to each by searching the player's name in our search box - we'll show you both results. We also link to a player's D-League page from their regular NBA page:
