Dan Hirsch Joins Sports Reference

Posted by sean on September 4, 2018

Dan Hirsch joins Sports Reference today as a web developer. If you are a baseball fan, you likely know Dan's name from his work as the creator of The Baseball Gauge. At the Baseball Gauge, he's done a great deal to promote Negro League History, the History of Ballparks, and also the comparison of various sabermetric uber-stats. We are excited to have him on board. Dan lives in Omaha with his family and follows the Tampa Bay Rays and Florida Gators. He's on Twitter at @DanHirsch.

    Excellent hire.

    Dan is a FABULOUS hire. I've corresponded with him over email a few times in the last 7 years. He's a great guy. I hope this doesn't mean the Baseball-Gauge is going away, though! On the other hand, if some of HIS stuff migrated over here... well, that'd be pretty neat. :)

    I also see that he has already incorporated Baseball-Reference WAR on his site. Cool. I look forward to this being a fruitful partnership for you and us!
