This should be fixed tomorrow. It was excluding guys who played another position on the field.

You may want to look at that.

Can you get fielding data into the box scores for the 1920s and 1930s (and 1940s once Retrosheet finishes those two NL years it's missing)? The data are in Retrosheet's versions of these box scores.

As of now it shows the winner, loser, and save (if applicable). Would be nice to see which starters the team faces in a quick and easy fashion. 🙂

This may just be me, but I find the layout of the Fielding Leaderboards page a little hard to read. It might be easier if you showed separation between the positions, or even just listed the position first (eg "2B - Errors Committed" rather than "Errors Committed as 2B"). As is, it's kind of hard to find what you're looking for.

Seems like leaders for OF should include all of history, even the years when you do have stats by individual OF position.
