Go and explore. Has a boatload of old boxscores and transactions, etc. Thru this site I found out:

Tom LaSorda was once property of the Yankees....

Tony LaRussa last played in the CARDINALS organization, right after playing in the WHITE SOX org. ....

good stuff, plan for hours......

I've gone there to dig up box scores of games I've been at where cool things have happened (a triple play, Tuffy Rhodes hitting three homers off of Dwight Gooden and the Cubs STILL lost to him, Ryan's 300th win, Yount's 3000th hit).

I could get in big trouble with this. My GF might shoot me!

Wow...this brought back memories of the coolest game ( I have ever seen...Bronx...beating Donnie Baseball winning the game in a come-from-behind ninth inning. The 90-minute rain delay was redeemed.

... I LOVE this site. They do all this stuff completely for free, as an extension of Bill James' initial idea of "Project Scoresheet" in the late 80's.

For anyone who enjoys running simulated seasons from the past on a computer (using Earl Weaver Baseball, Tony LaRussa Baseball, etc.), this is the place to get the numbers. It's a goldmine.

This site is a godsend. Just last friday we heard a trivia question on the radio that was so obscure (who started the 1988 home opener for the White Sox) that I never would have been able to figure it out otherwise. But by gum, one quick check of this site, and suddenly I know that Ricky Horton took the hill for the Pale Hose that day.

Well this is dandy. Between and this thing, my rumpus will never leave the house. I even ordered MLB Extra Innings, so I expect to take root sometime in early May.

One question: does it have postseason game logs? Or did I miss those? I need to get a complete list of Atlanta Braves players who took the field for Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS, so I can complete my voodoo doll collection.

The current issue of Baseball America spotlights the major league GMS and there's a feature article in there on Billy Beane and his "new school" way of GMing.
