Sum any set of rows by clicking anywhere (not red or blue) on the
first and last rows of your selection. We will then compute the
totals for the player between and including those two seasons.
Default Setting for this feature:
Turn On /
Turn Off
Summation of season totals only works for the initial case when the table
is in year order. On a sorted table the results may get a bit
goofy.
HIGHLIGHTING: Adding a range or series of player's career
seasons or career game numbers (like
'#1972:batting_standard',
'#19701980sum:batting_standard', or
'#1998,1999,2001,2002,sum:pitching_standard')
onto the end of a player page url causes the seasons to the
highlighted and summed. After changing address bar, reload the page to
see highlighting. This will work even in links emailed to others.
Note that for tables with multiple pages the first table is the
default. If you want to create a sum for a table other than the first
one, select the rows and after the summation window appears click on
"permanent link" link.
