Okay, a topic that has NOTHING to do with SQL . . .

Came across this link describing the SSC point scoring descriptions, and it got me thinking . . .

I am a HUGE baseball fan!!! To me, Cooperstown is Mecca. I have been known to schedule vacations around MLB schedules. (Seriously!)

So, just curious: any other baseball fans here?

I, personally, am an unashamed follower of the Evil Empire (a.k.a. NY Yankees)!

Yeah, lifelong upstate New Yorker here.

It also occurred to me that maybe this thread does have something to do with SQL. One of the things I've been doing with my job is trying to learn Analysis Services, SSIS, BIDS, etc. I needed to do something to practice.

So, what did I do? I took the database from this site and imported it into my SQL Server.

It made sense to me. Since baseball is all about statistics, it gave me a chance to set up dimensions, measures, cubes, etc.

Heh... Yankees fan?? Born Yankees hater myself. Respect the players (some of them) hate the franchise.


As far as teams go, I was not raised in a Baseball home nor in a baseball town. My passion does lie with the Braves though in the NL and Tigers in the AL.

Now we need a database like that for basketball.


Ohh the fun we could have with Fantasy Baseball with this database.

I'd be surprised if there isn't one out there somewhere. I actually found the baseball database by doing a Google search.

And for what it's worth, my wife is a Red Sox fan. (Talk about a mixed marriage!!! )
