I found out today that my data is now in Baseball-Reference!!!!
This is so cool and am glad that it has finally "arrived" there.
I repeat my thanks to the libraries and individuals who have helped me along the way and again a special thanks to Pete Palmer, who encouraged, reviewed, and promoted my data to the proper folks.
As to my current status, since my last update, here is what I have been working on:
|03/06/11||St. Louis||1909||Globe Democrat||scans from rolls sent from Mo. Hist Society - thru aug 7|
|03/13/11||New York||1910||Evening World||copies of scatter missing games from Cliff Blau|
|03/16/11||St. Louis||1909||Globe Democrat||scans from rolls sent from Mo. Hist Society - aug 8 to end of season|
|03/23/11||St. Louis||1910||Globe Democrat||scans from rolls sent from Mo. Hist Society - up to june 19|
|03/28/11||Detroit||1910||Times||very complete pbp scanned from L of Mich|
|03/30/11||Louisville||1899||Evening Post||pbp scans from Esta Day - Aug 1899|
|03/30/11||St. Louis||1910||Globe Democrat||scans from rolls sent from Mo. Hist Society - june 20 - july 31|
|04/03/11||Cleveland||1910||Leader||Sept home games from Rick Huhn|
1909 NL is now at 91.9% complete
1909 AL is now at 91.2% complete
1910 AL is now at 88.8% complete
St. Louis, as always, The Roadblock for me! :(
In addition, I have started going through my available on-line sources (Proquest, Fultonhistory.com, GeneologyBank.com) to document the 1912 AL K's. So far done are Chicago and Washington. I have started in on New York on FultonHistory.com and "unofficial" Retrosheet play-by-play, which tends to go slow due to the speed of the pdf loads and lack of a decent index. Rick Huhn has sent me the 1st few Cleveland home games from the Cleveland Leader and Ed Morton has sent over the April play-by-play from the Phil Evening Telegraph.
I got 1906 St. Louis Republic from the Mo. Hist Society (Apr-July). So far, nothing new.
Still would love to find someone with access to the Proquest Post Dispatch to help me out (no luck gaining access remotely). The P-D is not a great resource from what I have seen, but for StL, I need to look at every paper I can.
Anyways, really excited tonight.
Yeah, the new phone books are cool!
