With the playoffs starting today, here's a rundown of the Play Index tools you can use to run playoff-themed searches...
- Player Game Finders - The batting and pitching Game Finders have a postseason option that lets you find things like the most WPA in a playoff game or the most career 10+ strikeout games in the playoffs. You can even refine the searches by the round and/or game number of the series.
- Player & Team Streak Finders - Our batting and pitching streak finders also have a postseason option, so you can find the longest playoff hit streaks (among other searches). You can also use the Team Batting & Pitching Streak Finders to search for the longest postseason team streaks.
- Team Game Finders - Team batting and pitching game finders let you search for things like the fewest hits allowed by a team in a playoff game. Another cool trick is to use the "Find Teams with Most Matching Games in a Season" option to find, say, the teams that hit the most HR in a single World Series.
- Event Finders - We have special Postseason Batting & Pitching Event Finders let you pull specific event types out of our postseason play-by-play files, which cover the entire modern World Series era (1903-2012).
