Just put that I think the site is great. Only problem is sites like this have resulted in the demise of just about every major sports stat book that existed, although the book stores also are going bellyup, so i guess we wouldn't be able to buy them soon anyway.

I saw the same wiki, Chappas said closer to 5'5" not 5' 7"

Oh well, he was a scrub anyway. I never forgave Bill Veeck for letting go of Bucky Dent, but that's a another story 🙂

I'd never heard of him.

One very minor gripe....former White Sox shortstop Harry Chappas was 5'3", not 5'7" as listed here. The subject came up, when an article was posted about player's size. Hell, he made the cover of Sports Illustrated because of his size, look it up.

I'd love a golf-reference.com as it is hard to get quality information on tournaments other than the majors, or to get a good stat line for guys other than the most famous or most recent ones. Ideally it would have pro, college, and amateur plus women's pro golf. Anyone else here pushing for that?

Turns out there's a huge amount of blank space. The acknowledgment is up top.

I just took the survey, and it has neither questions about age, race, gender or educational achievement.
