This database contains pitching, hitting, and fielding statistics for Major League Baseball from 1871 through 2006. It includes data from the two current leagues (American and National), the four other "major" leagues (American Association, Union Association, Players League, and Federal League), and the National Association of 1871-1875.
This database was created by Sean Lahman, who pioneered the effort to make baseball statistics freely available to the general public. What started as a one man effort in 1994 has grown tremendously, and now a team of researchers have collected their efforts to make this the largest and most accurate source for baseball statistics available anywhere.<
What's new in this version:
Version 5.4 includes statistics from the 2006 baseball season.
