Baseball-Reference introduces new player pages for non-MLB stats

From Mike Lynch at on September 4, 2015:

As you explore Baseball-Reference, you may notice a bit of a re-imagining of how we are now presenting non-MLB statistics on the site. Where we once had fragmented sections for player stats in various non-Major leagues (minors, Japan, Cuba, etc), we have now combined everything into a single page showing the player’s professional history. This new page presents all of a player’s career statistics on one page and makes it easier than ever to track a player’s career trajectory and journey in one place. On player pages where is used to say “minors” it now lists a variety of levels at which the player played (like in the below image from Minnie Minoso’s page). Clicking that link will lead you to a listing of that player’s career at every level of play.

Through these pages, you can now find statistics for the following levels of play:

  • MLB since 1871
  • Complete affiliated Minor Leagues back to 1877
  • Negro Leagues from 1902-1960
  • Japanese baseball from 1936 to present
  • KBO baseball since 1982
  • Cuban National Series from 1961-2014
  • Arizona Fall League since 1992
  • Coverage of various Winter Leagues back to 2003 (and also 2000, 1999 and 1997)
  • Various independent leagues as far back at the late 19th century
