TBC Goes Back to High School
Over the next little while, The Baseball Cube will delve back into High School data. Though it existed in a prior version of TBC, it was thin and for only a few selected schools. The latest attempt will be a long-term project and will be available only to TBC PREMIUM subscribers. I have been collecting data for a month and today, I started development to integrate the data into the site. On High School pages, (See Blessed Trinity in Georgia), above the alumni, you will see a list of available seasons. Regular visitors will see the years available unlinked while subscribers will see more information. You may also see notes of availability on players pages if data exists...designed to tease. Sorry. The data is still thin but will be growing at a fair rate over time.

Soon, you will start to see high school data spill into player stat grids and you will be available to view high school rosters and/or stats on their own page. The eventual ideal is that all players will have a full historical view of their stats from High School --> (College) --> Professional --> MLB. The reality is that this will be true for many players but not all. Based on early attempts, the collection of data is at a rate of 84% success. Meaning, that there is some form of data for 84% of seasons researched. However, only 52% of all attempts results in batting/pitching stats and of those, there is no telling the quality or completion of the stats. The 84% includes both the stats and rosters.

There will be more posts about this data over the next few months. In the meantime if you want to have this data appear on your version of The Baseball Cube, you'll have to sign up for the ad-free TBC PREMIUM subscription which is only $19/year. Once you do this, you will see the high school data slowly start to seep into the stat grids.
