This page contains detailed statisics (mostly) not available on the basic profile page. The data here is limited to the Major League and digs a bit deeper into the events that occured on the field. Its important to note that this is not an "advanced stats" section for analytics and metrics. It is a summary of statistics that are more difficult to find on other sites and are related to play level events.
