    Negro League Statistics Update

    Here's an interesting interview with Rob Neyer about the updated statistics now available on Baseball Reference.

    "I think about the cosmic snowball theory. A few million years from now the sun will burn out and lose its gravitational pull. The earth will turn into a giant snowball and be hurled through space. When that happens it won't matter if I get this guy out." Bill Lee

    Thanks Mudge, I'll have to give this a read!

    I was aware of the release of these statistics which is just staggering. The interview was really short, but it was nice to get some more information about the amount of information that is available. I've been considering trying to put together a mogul file using this data, but that is a project that will probably have to wait.

    Yeah I was hoping for more length, more examples but good to know this is out there.

    Don't forget this site for Negro League stats. It even has fielding stats.

    The Seamheads Negro League section has been updated with new information and stats for 1907 and two Cuban National League seasons: 1913-1914 and 1914-1915.

    The prior update was 8/25/12 with stats and information on the 1923 Eastern Colored League.
