COMPLETE BASEBALL ENCYCLOPEDIA
The Sabermetric Baseball Encyclopedia has been renamed. It is now known as
the Complete Baseball Encyclopedia.
UPDATE--September 18, 2013--I am now taking preorders for the next edition, which will include the 2013 season and is projected to become available early on during the 2013 postseason.
A daily update subscription package is now available, for those who want their
Complete Baseball Encyclopedia to be updated every day during the 2014 baseball
season. You can update it as often as want during the season. If you miss a
day, or purchase the subscription after the season starts, you don't have to
worry about any missed days. Every time the encyclopedia is updated, you will
receive the full season stats up to that point.
"Lee Sinins' Complete Encyclopedia is best reason yet developed to own
a computer. I think I must own a copy of every baseball encyclopedia there is
or ever was, and occasionally I find that I still need to pull out one of the
others, but not very often; the Complete Encyclopedia covers 97% of my needs.
Whether I'm working or playing, calculating or daydreaming, the Complete Encyclopedia
pops up to help out. I turn it on in the morning; I turn it off when the house
is on fire. Otherwise, I'm using it."--Bill James
"Never does a week go by when I don't figure out something with your program.
It's the best invention since the toaster oven!"--Jayson Stark
The encyclopedia features the following powerful functions--
- view the yearly hitting or
pitching stats of any player in history
- In addition to being able to see everyone's complete yearly stats, you can
view a segment of a player's career. For example, you can limit your
viewing of Barry Bonds's career to just his years with the Giants, or even
just his years with certain accomplishments, such as 40+ HR.
- view yearly fielding stats of any player in history
- Extensive sorting options--The encyclopedia already contained powerful
sorting features and now there are even more. The leader lists allow you to
choose criteria like individual teams, individual leagues, time spans, positions,
right handed/left handed hitters/pitchers & switch hitters. You don't
have to limit a search using the criteria and can choose as many different
options as you wish at 1 time. There is no limit to how many players can be
included on a list. Additionally, you may choose as many stats as you want
to include in the sort. Generate leader lists using both player's totals and
their figures compared to the league average. You can even mix and match the
totals and the averages. For example, a list of career HR leaders whose OPS
was at least 150 points above average is just mouseclicks away.
- Perform sorts for team stats, as well as individuals.
- Consecutive year streaks--Generate lists of players who achieved whatever
statistical feats you can think of in consecutive years. Both the players'
totals and their totals vs. the league average are available to be used.
- biographical information--birth and death dates and locations, middle names,
birth names, nicknames, height and weight
- Ages, birth and death locations, height and weight can all be used as sorting
- Leader lists can be created using a combination of different stats. For
example, you can get a list of HR leaders among players with a .300+ AVG or
- Each player has a line showing the average career totals for a player in
his league during his career. It's perfectly tailored to that particular player's
distribution of career PAs. For example, a player who had 10% of his career
PAs while playing in the AL in 2000 will have the 2000 AL stats count towards
10% of that line. There is also a line showing the average for that player's
- In addition to conventional leader lists, you can create leader lists based
on comparisons between each player to his league average.
For example, Mickey Mantle was either 313 HR or was 140% above average,
depending on which way you prefer to look at the comparison. Where does that
rank him? Thanks to the encyclopedia, we can see that he ranks 14th and 38th,
respectively. Or, if you want to compare a player to his league's average
at his position, that can also be done. Mantle was 267 HR better than the
AL average for OF during his career, or 99% better. Those figures rank him
9th and 67th, respectively
- the user has the choice of using the major leagues, or the player's specific
league when looking at the league average line.
- Leader lists can be created for seasons with whatever criteria you want.
For example, you can have a list of players with the most 40+ HR seasons.
Or you could limit that kind of search by criteria like teams, time spans
and even other requirements, like a .650+ SLG.
