Congrats to Retrosheet, who now have full major-league baseball box scores from 1920-1930 online! (This is in addition to full box score coverage for 1953-2008, and broad coverage of box scores and play-by-play data from 1871-2008). As Nate Silver has said, “Baseball is the perfect dataset”, and we would not have this astonishingly rich and detailed dataset if not for the dedicated crowdsource efforts of the Retrosheet team.
