NOTE (posted in December 2018): In recent years (beginning with the loss of interest in trained scorers, which came with the advent of supposedly helpful new scoring technology), it has become increasingly difficult to obtain even the most basic information on the National Baseball League from clubs (with some notably helpful exceptions such as Herts Baseball Club) or from the British Baseball Federation. The 2018 season saw a new low in the regard, with an unrelated dispute leading to no official statistical information being recorded by the British Baseball Federation and thus a highly regrettable (and seemingly irreparable) gap in the statistical record occurring. On a personal note, this is the most serious in a series of incidents that has ultimately killed my enthusiasm for continuing to work on the domestic side of the archive. However, not least as a mark of respect to all the other people who have kindly given up so much of their own time to help create this archive, the Project COBB website will remain up indefinitely, funded (as it always has been) out of my own pocket. And I am aware that the data are not mine – they are a tribute to all the players and off-field personnel who've made British baseball what it is. Thus, I will gladly make all the data I have available in spreadsheet format. Joe Gray, Project COBB Founder
