One of the features here at Baseball-Reference that I think a lot of people miss is the Videos section, which can only be accessed via the "more [+]" dropdown menu. I hope this won't be the case much longer, because I'm going to be adding a number of new videos to the page over the coming weeks and months in an effort to educate users on some of the more common tools we have on the site. But even before I begin posting new videos, there are already three tutorials on the page that you should watch if you'd like to maximize your experience as a B-R user. The first one involves box scores and the many cool (and semi-hidden) tricks you can execute in them with the right know-how. The second deals with player and team gamelogs, and again clues you in to some of the neat aspects of those pages that you might not have noticed at first glance. Finally, the third video discusses the changes that B-R underwent back in the spring, when we redesigned everything to make the site easier to use, more readily able to add new goodies, and of course, to make it match our brethren at Basketball, Football, Hockey, and Olympics.
So go and watch those videos now if you want to become a Baseball-Reference master user. And be on the lookout, new videos are coming soon, possibly as early as the end of this week!
