Random Page Search Added to Sports Reference Sites

Posted by Mike Lynch on May 9, 2017

We have rolled out an update to our search function on Baseball Reference, Basketball Reference, Pro Football Reference and Hockey Reference. If you type "random" or "zz" into our search forms on those sites, you will be taken to a random page. We have also added a random page tool to the frivolities menus on those four sites (Baseball, Basketball, Football, Hockey).

If you'd like to save shortcuts to random pages for any of these four sites, please use these URLs:
