Thanks to Ted Turocy of the Chadwick Baseball Bureau, who for several years has done the heavy lifting to make the annual updates possible. Ted also hosts a version of the data at github, for folks who are inclined to interface with it that way.
Chris Dalzell and his team maintain an R package and library available through github. Thanks to Chris, Michael Friendly, Dennis Murphy, and Martin Monkman for their ongoing work.

Please help support the Baseball Archive. The database is free, but there are real costs associated with maintaining it and making it available for download. The more popular this site becomes, the more expensive it is to keep things going. Please consider making a donation as a show of your support. Like the PBS folks say, we need your support if we’re going to survive. Click here for more information.

Some third-party applications don’t work with newer versions of the database. For that reason, we’re making some earlier versions available for download. Please be advised that no support exists for these versions. All questions about using the database with third-party applications should be directed to the makers of that software.
