Game Logs

One of the views for Players and Teams is the game log. Since we are able to use Retrosheet's historical boxscore data, we can provide a day-by-day view of games from the team or player perspective. The data is available since 1957 and is fully validated up until the current season minus 1. For example, during the 2018 season, the boxscore and Game Log data was fully complete until 2017 with the 2018 data being derived by The Baseball Cube. Though TBC is not necessarily incomplete, the detail and QA provided by Retrosheet is much better.

Boxscore-related data is updated each morning after the games from the night before. The team logs will give you a daily view of a team's progress through the season through game results and high-level information (and of course, link to boxscore) as well as their current standing.

For players, the views are separated by batters and pitchers. Both views provide a daily boxscore view for the player in grid format for only the games in which he played in the Majors for the season.
