NWSL and MLS Draft Data Now on FBref

Posted by Jonah Gardner on August 10, 2022

US Soccer Fans, we have some exciting news! We've added historic draft data for both MLS and the NWSL. The data set includes every draft pick in the history of both leagues, so back to 2013 for the NWSL and back to 1996 for MLS. This update is thanks to the work of former data intern Eric Tran, who put together this data set for us, and current engineering intern Joe Zobel, who implemented it on the site.

Like other major American sports, and unlike the major European soccer leagues, the NWSL and MLS have an annual draft. Notable #1 overall picks include USWNT superstars Rose Lavelle and Crystal Dunn, current Leeds United midfielder Jack Harrison, and Andre Blake, #1 for the current MLS leaders Philadelphia Union. You can also explore other fun historical tidbits, like seeing current Leeds manager Jesse Marsch was selected 21st overall in the inaugural MLS draft,

Exciting Update to the Team Game Finder on Stathead Baseball

Posted by Jonah Gardner on July 13, 2022

We've rolled out a new update to Stathead Baseball, giving the Team Game Finder some cool new features.

The most exciting new addition to the Team Game Finder its a set of new search types that give you the ability to answer more questions than ever before. As with the Player Game Finder, we've added the option to search for combined statlines from all the games that match your search. You can now look up team stats in home or away games, wins or losses, and much more.

We've also added a search type that gives you the option to look for the most matching games from multiple seasons. Previously, you only had the option to look up matching games from a single season.

Want to give it a try? Here are some questions to get you started:
What team had the most road HRs in a season?
What team has the most all-time road wins?

Lastly, the new upgrade brings smoother performance and faster searching to the tool, meaning it's never been easier to answer your questions about team game stats. If you're a Stathead subscriber who hasn't tried to the Team Game Finder, give it a look. And if you've never tried Stathead, sign up today and your first month is on us!
