PREMIUM + TRACKER and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Together at last, the PREMIUM service (Chocolate) and the TRACKER service (Peanut Butter) have collided and are now in 1 yummy product. The Tracker, in email format for many years has been merged with the PREMIUM Service. The emails are gone (though I can revive it for a fee for those still interested) but instead, you are now provided with 200 players and the ability to view the stats online whenever you want. I know I'm sugar-coating it (pun intended) beacase many of you liked the emails but to be 100% transparent, it wasn't working for ME. I know, I know. Its not about me, its about the customer. But hear me out. It was way too difficult for me to support. Emails would fail. Returned from destination server, blocked by my own. Invalid email addresses. Complaints of partial emails. I know, I know, you provide a service, you need to support it. And I did. I tried. I had to manually send out many of the emails each morning. It was time consuming (sad emoji). So the decision was made to scrap the emails and move the tracking to the site (happy emoji).

So now, the PREMIUM service will not only provide you with an ad-free surfing experience, access to our research tools and data store discounts (Plus some other goodies) but you will also automatically be signed up for the Tracker with a whopping 200 players.

WHAT IS THE TRACKER!???!?!? Ok, well you don't have to yell the question but since you asked. The TRACKER is a service that allows you to select up to 200 players and view their stats together on a designated page. You can add/remove players whenever you want and the Tracker will update automatically. You can view the stats as SEASON stats or from the prior day. Stats are updated daily for MLB, a few times a week for Minor Leagues and once or twice a week for College (D1).

If you need more information on the TRACKER or PREMIUM or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact the Cube.


Partnership with College Baseball Foundation
The Baseball Cube is proud to announce a partnership with the College Baseball Foundation (CBF). CBF's purpose is to preserve and recognize the history of College Baseball, which works perfectly with TBC's plan to rebuild the recent history (1965-present) of College Baseball Stats for D1 schools.

The partnership is centered around a collaborative effort using CBF's industry connections and TBC's technical acumen to collect and store as many seasons of stats as possible. The project on my side has been underway for several months. More than 2100 school/seasons between 1965 and 2001 have been captured so far and the process of loading stats and players has slowly begun. In parallel, CBF, and hopefully others out there, will work on obtaining old media guides, screenshots of stats and rosters and whatever else they can get their hands on. The results, hopefully available within 18 months, would be 56 years of college baseball preserved on both TBC and CBF with the data living at TBC and an enhancement to the CBF web site with links for each team/season.

I have called out to site visitors in the past to help with this project. Especially if you currently attend a University or played D1 at some point and have some media guides hanging around. The plan is to crowdsource all missing seasons. Stats and Rosters. I have spoken to former players in the past who were willing to send in PDF or JPG's of their stats. So I am putting out another official call for help with this long-term project!

Simply use the contact form to let me know if you have anything to offer to the project.

Thanks in advance!


2021 Spring Stats
Did you know that Josh Rojas of the Diamondbacks had the most spring training plate appearances in 2021 with 79?

Did you know that Trevor Bauer and Zach Plesac both had the most spring training innings pitched in 2021 with 23.1?

Lucas Giolito had the most strikeouts (30)

Joc Pederson and Corey Seager has the most homers (8)

Sam Haggerty (Mariners) had the most stolen bases (7)

1043 pitchers were tied for the most Complete Games and Shutouts (0)

None of this is very interesting and Spring Training stats are mostly uninteresting. However, there are now 16 years of them (2006-2021... Subtract the numbers and add 1)

Enjoy!
