TBC Search Page
Operators
SubjectShortcutDescription
Quotations"search text"Like Google, returns results only with the exact string. To clarify, if you type Mike d, Mike Schmidt and Mike Davis will be returned in the query. If you type "Mike D", only Mike Davis will be returned.Unlike Google though, you can't have the quotes in the middle of the text. They have to surround the entire text for it to work.
Major League PlayerssearchText mlbAppend 'mlb' to the end of a player search to return only Major Leaguers. This will also increase the chance of an immediate redirect.
Jump to 1st SelectionsearchText xAppend 'x' to the end of a search to return the first result of a query. Note that results are always returned in the same order. Major Leaguers, Minor Leaguers, College Players, Teams, Seasons, High SChools Cities. This option may result in an unintended redirect.
