Site Features: Composite totals added to Team Game Finder

Posted by Neil Paine on June 21, 2011

Here's another new addition to the Play Index -- the Team Batting & Pitching Game Finders will now output a team's composite batting or pitching stats from the games in question. This will allow you to find things like the teams who drew the most single-season walks in the 2000s:

Rk Tm Year BB
1 SEA 2000 775
2 OAK 2000 750
3 SFG 2000 709
4 SFG 2004 705
5 BOS 2007 689
6 CLE 2000 685
7 NYY 2003 684
8 SDP 2001 678
9 STL 2000 675
10 NYM 2000 675

Similarly, you can use the Pitching Game Finder to look for team leaders like 2000-2011 teams that allowed the most HR in a season:

Rk Tm Year HR
1 KCR 2000 239
2 COL 2001 239
3 CIN 2004 236
4 HOU 2000 234
5 CHC 2000 231
6 ANA 2000 228
7 COL 2002 225
8 CHW 2004 224
9 TEX 2001 222
10 HOU 2001 221
11 COL 2000 221

While we don't have a full-fledged Team Season Finder yet, this is an easy way to get some of the same results.

  1. Cool!

    Please add a "not equal to" option in your Play Index selection criteria across the board, and you will have my eternal gratitude.

    Neil, this is excellent news.

    Furthermore, the Team Game Finder search results now show the totals in all categories for the games found, not just the category that was searched for.

  3. Sweet addition, as always.

  4. #1 - Hi Diane, I think Sean's going to take a look at that at some point... Can't say when it would happen, but it's definitely been filed under suggestions. :)

  5. Can we get stolen bases to show up too?
