Play-by-Play Explanation

Please report any issues or strangeness you see with the description of plays given above. We have tested several hundred different types of plays, but, in all likelihood, there are still some errors or misinterpretations of the play-by-play data.

Pitch-by-pitch data should not be taken as completely accurate, though we believe it to be as accurate as is currently possible.
