FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
The Player Page has almost no information, why should I ADOPT it? There have been over 19,000 players in MLB history so it is a process. However once you adopt a player and it can be any player here is what happens (before and after video of Andre Dawson’s page), we add images, career stats, noteworthy events and news, biography, audio and video if available. We also do some cool back end tricks to help get the page found. Check out the before and after video and please understand it is your adoption that is going to allow us to bring you this unique content!
Why is there duplicate posts? This Day in Baseball has uploaded 5 various data bases and that has resulted in some duplicate content. FEAR NOT there is only one adoption per event. In cases where there are multiple pages they will be cleaned up with our priority being adopted pages first as we make our way through the content. The initial uploads were completed on October 19, 2019. There are over 60,000 pages on this day in baseball so please be patient on all unadopted pages.
How do I find events? Players? Ball Parks? This Day in Baseball has over 60,000 pages and growing, it is hard to shift through it all. So I recommend you check out this video. If you can’t watch the video, go to the search bar which can be found in the right hand column and in the hamburger on your mobile device. Type in any date, year, player, and the search function will list out every instance with that term in it. Some players like Babe Ruth have allot of items to search through. You can also search categories (PS – this is under development as of 10/20/2019, about 30% of the pages are categorized).

The Baseball Page.com was founded in 1995 by Dan Holmes who worked for MLB and The Baseball Hall of Fame, the site was acquired by Tom Hannon in 2009. Hannon then sold the site in 2012, and reacquired it in 2018. Hannon bought it back to finish the job he started in 2009 to bring the amazing stories to life via a multi media experience.
