I am looking for the number of PA's (Plate Appearances) that occurred in each of the 24 possible base-out states split by batting order position. I am interested especially in the years 2010-2015 in MLB. Baseball Reference provides plate appearances by batting order position, and by base-out state, but not the two combined. Is there anywhere online where this data can be obtained? Thanks.

  • I'm not sure this is on topic; or rather, it's specifically off topic by the help center but we're somewhat discussing changing that. But either way, it seems overly specific... it's possible Open Data would be a better fit for this question. I am fairly confident the answer is that you'd have to pull the information yourself; it's not actually hard to do that, particularly for the period in question (given it's so short). You can easily pull the PBP data for all 6 seasons from BR and just classify each PA separately.

  • You can check out my github repo, github.com/snoopy369/Sports.SE , which has some examples of how to do something akin to this - none of them browse PbP pages but the concept isn't substantially more complex (just more pages).
