Random Games

Random Games

With baseball on hiatus - along with much of the rest of the world - I thought I'd try to fill the gap a little bit by writing up random games through MLB history. These are chosen randomly. First, I pick a random season between 1918 and 2019 (the seasons for which Retrosheet has released play-by-play data). I then pick a random team within that season. And, finally, a random game played by that team.

I'm not sure how frequently I will do games - as of now, I do still have a day job. But I will link to them below as I post them. I hope you enjoy them. (note: I re-sorted them so they're now in chronological order of when the games happened, not of when I posted them.)

All articles are written so that they pull data directly from the most recent version of the Player won-lost database. Hence, any numbers cited within these articles should automatically incorporate the most recent update to Player won-lost records. In some cases, however, the accompanying text may have been written based on previous versions of Player won-lost records. I apologize if this results in non-sensical text in any cases.
