Lookup baseball players by their ID at various data sources like MLB, Yahoo!, CBS, ESPN, and FanGraphs.

Project description

Do you analyze baseball data from several sources and need to find a way to correlate it for the same player? This takes advantage of the data published at https://github.com/spilchen/baseball_id_db. With the data you can take a player from Yahoo! and cross reference with data from sites such as http://baseball-reference.com, http://fangraphs.com, http://www.seanlahman.com. This package gives you a way to access this map within Python. A set of APIs allow you to do lookup of players by a variety of different IDs.
