Does anybody have an Access database, or SQL Server database that has been created to house baseball statistics ?

Ed,

I'm interested in this too - I have thought about writing a web or CE app that would keep track of baseball stats. Let me know if you have found anthing like this.

Hey Tim,

Since I have not received any responses to this threat, I have started building it myself. I have downloaded a statistics database from on of the free ones available on the web, and turned it in to a database that fits my needs.

Im currently creating the output reports to automatically generate a web-report (Web-Page). as soon as I am happy with that, I will begin creating the web access portion to allow me to 'crud' data to my database.

At this point I am doing it with SQL Server, and visual studio, but I have been given some really good examples for MySQL, and PHP.

Stay tuned, I would be glad to share it with you when I am done.

Ed

There is a site out there that has sports databases for baseball, football, basketball and racing.

also there is a very comprehensive baseball stat database at this site:

Seconded about http://www.baseball1.com/ -- I've used this site frequently. In fact, I use the data from this site to practice my own SQL and development skills. So I can say that I, the baseball nut, am having my fun, and it counts as work! :-)

Good find, thanks for sharing. Have you found the data on this site to be up to date? (That's a question from the baseball fan in me, not necessarily relevant from a technical standpoint :-P )

I actually grabbed that one from the other post that you and Steve were all over regarding baseball. I sent that link off to most of my programming buddies. Definately more fun to use that than using AdventureWorks all the time for development testing. Do you know if there are any downloadable databases out there for movies or baseball cards, comic books, etc?

Sean Lahman does a really good job with keeping it up to date season-by-season, so my guess is that he updates it once a year (during the off-season).

I guess trying to keep up with daily stats during the season would be a bit much! :-)

Have you checked out the baseball discussion thread that we have over here?

For those of you that wish to query historical baseball statistics using SQL, take a look at:

http://baseball.rdbhost.com

It contains the Sean Lahman database, and features a web-form for query submission.

Postgres is the backend, not SQL Server, sorry.

I have been trying to download Lahman's database to my home SQL Server Express 2008 (we use 2008 at work), but no joy so far. Lahman's .SQL file seems set up for a different database - it has double quotes and uses ` instead of ' for literals so syntax errors. Editing the 50+ MB file seems to take forever, so that's not a good option either (my home machine might make a better boat anchor than computer). Any suggestions (other than SQL Server 2012 and a new machine) or success stories? Thanks.
