Web “portal” pages are, in effect, meta-links: a portal page is one designed as a “doorway” to a great number of related other sites.

Stats and News

(The Batter’s Box site has a very helpful mini-review of baseball-stat sites available; now a good few years old, but still useful).

Primary Stats and News Sources

There are numerous sources for baseball stats, but for both quality and quantity three stand out. They are:

All of them also offer a very great deal more than just stats.

For minor-league stats and news, there’s; one hopes that the recent coup by MLB, wiping out numerous minor-league teams, will not cause this source to dry up (that is, one hopes that MiLB will continue to exist, something that at present is open to question). But note that Baseball-Reference also carries minor-league (and other league) stats.

Game Coverage

Nowadays, more and more people want to watch ballgames—or at least get pitch-by-pitch live recountings—than ever before. That accompanies a dramatic rise in the download speed available to most people now, and a plethora of resources for live coverage is now available.

Viewing Games

Note that there are numerous online sources that purport to offer free live streaming of baseball (and most other sports) games. Most or all offer links to streams from overseas that are carrying U.S.-based sources; that is probably illegal copyright violation, and we do not list any of them here.

In addition, FanGraphs has interesting in-game analytic statistics and graphs; it’s worth a look.
