Baseball-Reference.com has been around a long time. Ten years now. In honor of the occasion, I am launching ten new features for 2010. They are listed below and you can click on the links to read a rundown of what I've done. I've only knocked a couple off the list, but I'll be tracking my progress here and this post will be linked to in the site's top header, so you can check back anytime. I expect to finish before the All-Star break (maybe sooner).
10 for 10 Features
- Pete Palmer Database, the SABR Bio Committee DB and the SABR MILB DB updates
- 1920-1939, 1952 & 1953 RetroSheet Data and improvements to the box score, split and gamelogs.
- Player Uniform Numbers
- Win Expectancy and Run Expectancy
- Player Newsfeeds
- Advanced Fielding Stats and Leaderboards
- Player Wins Above Replacement
- Player Photos, pre-1960
- Gamelogs, Box Scores and Splits for 1920-Yesterday
- MLB Contracts, MLB Agent, Player Service Time, and Historical Salaries
I hope you enjoy the new features. As always please let us know if you have suggestions, find errors, or have comments either here or via our feedback form
