Baseball-Reference Now Has Improved Negro League Stats

4

As recounted by Rob Neyer, Baseball-Reference added the 1920-1948 stats sleuthed by the MLB from 2000 to 2005. Things are still woefully incomplete, and the fact that so many games were recounted only in black newspapers that may have been unavailable to researchers (if recounted at all) skews the data. Josh Gibson, the prolific slugger has only 107 recorded home runs, for example. Cool Papa Bell, despite his legendary speed and longevity, only has 132 recorded stolen bases. But, something is better than nothing.
