Show Notes

Back in 2000 Sean Forman was a graduate student with a love for baseball.  He never imagined that he'd create a wide-ranging enterprise - Sports-reference.com that encompasses not only baseball but American football, basketball, hockey, soccer and college football and basketball.  

The sites are so user-friendly and have become a go-to platform to get statistics for players, teams and leagues associated with all those sports.   Now they've created a subscription service Stathead.com that allows the data to be searched and parsed even more easily which is great since there is SO MUCH data. 

We talked with Sean on how it all began, how it's used today and how fans can use a few cool tips to get more out of Baseball-Reference.com!
