Baseball Almanac: The History of Major League Baseball

The Official Baseball History Site

Major League Baseball endures because of its historical reference points, and Baseball Almanac has dedicated itself to preserving the history of our national pastime.

Baseball Almanac is an interactive baseball encyclopedia filled with 500,000+ pages of in-depth baseball facts, original baseball research and baseball statistics not found anywhere else.

Repeatedly recognized as THE online source for baseball related history: National Geographic said, "Everything you want to know about baseball is on this site." Sports Collectors Digest said, "This site doesn't have any rivals. Every historical information or feat you want on baseball is right here." Yahoo once wrote, "If God were a baseball fan, this site is what his attic would look like."

Baseball Almanac
" Baseball Almanac is a website of facts and figures about Major League Baseball that includes traditional statistics but is focused on preserving the game's history with the site's motto being 'Where what happened yesterday is being preserved today'... The depth of information and the baseball passion which clearly infuses the site is impressive, and I would encourage baseball fans and information seekers to see what Baseball Almanac has to offer." - Emerald Insight Review (Ian McCullough, (2017) 'Baseball Almanac', Reference Reviews, Vol. 31 Issue: 6, pp.39-39, Full Review )
