Baseball Prospectus Press Release

BP Announces Free Public Access to Archives

by Baseball Prospectus

Baseball Prospectus, owner of BaseballProspectus.com (BP), today announced it has made its entire archive of premium and fantasy content over one year old completely and permanently free to the public.

Hundreds of original articles from 1997 through 2010 are now available to the masses and will serve as a source of information to baseball analysts everywhere for years to come.

"It's our way of saying thank you to the Internet for making our work possible over the years," said Dave Pease, a partner at Baseball Prospectus.

For the first time, readers will be able to peruse the writings of some of Baseball Prospectus' most famous alumni including Keith Woolner (Cleveland Indians), Keith Law (ESPN), and Christina Kahrl (ESPN). Fans of the modern day staff will get their fill as well by digging into Kevin Goldstein's "Future Shock" series, Jay Jaffe's "Hit List," and Steven Goldman's "You Could Look It Up."

"Baseball Prospectus has been publishing cutting-edge baseball analysis for almost 15 years, from Voros McCracken's groundbreaking studies on the interaction of pitching and defense to Joe Sheehan's deconstruction of Jack Morris to the formative work of political analyst Nate Silver, and this material comprises not just a history of our publication but of the quest to transcend the tired received wisdom of mainstream baseball thought," said Steven Goldman, Baseball Prospectus Editor-in-Chief. "Now that we're making our archive easily available to the public, the reactionary Murray Chass types no longer have an excuse for ignorance. As Casey Stengel would have said, you can look it up."
