The Hall of Fame/Baseball Heroes Chronology spreadsheet on the Strat-O-Matic web site is the work of gamer Ken Wenger, with assists from other gamers, including Negro Leagues expert Scott Simkus.
Wenger has amassed biographical and ratings information on every player included in Strat-O-Matic’s Hall of Fame, Negro Leagues and Baseball Heroes sets – 435 players in all.
This handy reference will inform you, but also let you sort players any number of ways: By age, native country, playing era, team and less conventional ways (dead or alive, tall or short, heavy or skinny).
For instance, the spreadsheet shows the date of each player’s first game, but also the year when he was a regular for the first time. The data includes fielding ratings at each position the player is rated for, and endurance ratings for each pitcher.
