The Baseball-Reference Bullpen: Baseball's collaborative encyclopedia

Here's a reminder for everyone to check out the B-R Bullpen Wiki, the collaborative baseball encyclopedia that anyone can edit. We have 65,285 69,775 articles -- and counting -- thanks to users just like you, and we hope to add many more as we collect and organize as much baseball knowledge as possible. To get you started, here are some links on the project:

Or you could just go to a Random Page.

Give it a try, explore a little, and maybe even take a shot at editing a page. There's a lot of baseball knowledge out there just waiting to be added to these pages!

    69,775 content pages, not 65,285; we've added almost 5,000 since the last time the Bullpen got a shoutout here. Onward and upward! Thanks for the link as always. - Mischa

    I'm very happy with the information this site provides. It is a wonderful resource.
    As SR expands, it would be nice if all the sports were not consolidated into one giant site. I don't really expect it to happen.
    Here's the thing: I believe that associating baseball with football and hockey diminishes baseball. Football and hockey are more a spectacle than a sport. If you're going to include them in you might as well start devising and publishing stats for cage fighting as well.
    Eventually, they will know precisely the damage a blow to the head causes, and exactly the ramifications of concussions and participation among children will drop way off. Then, it's just a matter of time before another yet another great American tradition of barbarism concludes.
