    WOW! What an outstanding use of technology!!! And what a fabulous find the retrosheets.org site is!! You'll have me busy parsing this for some time now! I simply cannot wait to see the work you've done parsing the event files.

    I always wanted to be a baseball statistician when I grew up, and now that I'm in IT, I've always pondered how the real players in the field store game data. This is going to answer a LOT of questions I've had stirring in the back of my mind for some time now.

    This is phenomenal. Nicely done.

    I, too, would love to see more articles in this series on how you structured, parsed, and imported the game data, along with adding more info to an application that could be used to answer tons of "what ifs".

    I've done a few statistics with LINQPAD I bought the O'Reilly ‘s LINQ pocket reference and the samples were ridiculous. Tom ,Dick ,and Harry examples to think that people get paid for providing such lame examples. As far as Foxpro goes yes I am sure it can do this… so can Excel. The issue is what can be done in a program outside of a database and the ease in which can be done. It can be done in any programming language C, C++, VB, perl, C# and if you want to explore functional programming (Read Excel under the covers) further Ocaml , Haskel and Microsoft’s F# . With that said thanks for providing a useful example.
