Hardball Retrospective – “Original” Franchise Register

The Franchise Register catalogs the roster of every Major League team using “Original” players
as defined in Hardball Retrospective such that players signing their first Major League contract with an organization are considered an “Original” member of the franchise for the balance of their career. Therefore Babe Ruth is a member of the Red Sox for the duration of his career, while Reggie Jackson and Rickey Henderson are listed with the Athletics, etc.

Based on the research for Hardball Retrospective. This website will include information that was omitted from the paperback version due to space limitations along with brand new content. Additional content will be posted in the near future. The initial release consists of:

· Hardball Retrospective – “Original” Franchise Register

· Hardball Retrospective – All-Time “Original” Rosters

· Hardball Retrospective – Defensive Lineups By Decade

· Hardball Retrospective – Fielding WAR and WS Leader Boards

· Hardball Retrospective – Old-Time Franchises – Single-Season WAR Leaders

· Hardball Retrospective – Franchise Charts – Player-Seasons by Position, 20+ Win Shares

All table columns may be sorted in ascending or descending order and the number of entries displayed can be selected from 10, 25, 50 and 100 rows. You can also search for text within each table. For example, you could select 25 entries then search for Jackie Robinson. The resulting rows in that table will be limited to Jackie Robinson’s seasons and statistics. If you want to view the results for a specific franchise-year, enter the 3-letter Franchise ID in the search field followed by an underscore and the 4-digit year. LOU_1899 would list all “Original” players for the Louisville Colonels in 1899. A complete list of franchise ID’s is provided below.
