Baseball-Reference.com was first launched on February 1, 2000. I was disappointed with not being able to find historical baseball statistics on the web and I was not convinced that existing sites were effectively utilizing the hyperconnected environment of the web. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions and would be happy to consider colloborations with other websites, though my time constraints often prevent us from taking part in all of the ventures we would like to. Please use our feedback form to get in touch with us.
When citing in newspapers, I would appreciate the use of Baseball-Reference.com rather than BaseballReference.com. Also, for any online articles we would appreciate a link to the home page and/or a link to an example of any individual pages mentioned in the article.
When citing for academic articles or papers, please cite in a manner similar to what follows:
Sports Reference LLC. "(title of a particular page or blank for general citation)." Baseball-Reference.com - Major League Statistics and Information. http://www.baseball-reference.com/. (date of your visit)

I used to work as an assistant professor in Mathematics and Computer Science at Saint Joseph's University, and have earned a Doctorate in Applied Math and Computational Sciences from the University of Iowa. In May 2006, I took a leave from SJU and started working on the site full-time and have since resigned from SJU. To set up a phone call please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will make every effort to return your e-mail within 24 hours, though that sometimes may not be possible.
