Download Lahman Baseball Database

The updated version of the database contains complete batting and pitching statistics from 1871 to 2018, plus fielding statistics, standings, team stats, managerial records, post-season data, and more. For more details on the latest release, please read the documentation.

Special thanks to Ted Turocy of the Chadwick Baseball Bureau, who did the heavy lifting to make the most recent updates possible. Ted also hosts a version of the data at github, for folks who are inclined to interface with it that way. Mike Webb created the SQL version.

The database can be used on any platform, but please be aware that this is not a standalone application. It is a database that requires Microsoft Access or some other relational database software to be useful.
