Probably the most valuable research tools used at
Baseball in Wartime in our ever-expanding collection are Pat
Doyle’s Professional Baseball Player Database CD-ROMs. rong>
These clever pieces of software contain year-by-year
records for major and minor league players. Every player who
is listed in the Official Baseball Guides for those seasons
is included, and many who were omitted from the Guides
because of limited playing time have been researched and
added to the database.
Professional Baseball Player Database (1922 to 2004)
includes batting (BA, HR, RBI) and pitching (W-L,
ERA) statistics for each player as listed in the Guides or
other sources. It enables users to search and sort
information in a variety of ways. Players may be listed
alphabetically, ranked by statistical categories, or sorted
by career, team, or league.
Professional Baseball Statistical Database
(1920 to 1945) is similar to the Player Database but is
limited to the years 1920 to 1945 and includes in-depth
statistics for batting (G, AB, R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, BA,
OBP, SLG, OPS, SO, BB, SB, CS, HBP, SH, SF and Positions
played) and pitching (G, GS, CG, W, L, PCT, SV, ERA, IP, H,
R, ER, SO, BB, ShO, HB, WP, HR, WHIP).
