First Callup :: Player Pages

There's a new data element on the player pages called 1st Callup and its located at the top right, near the Major League debut. The 1st Callup element is a description of the circumstances in which a player was first called up to the Major Leagues. Its another ongoing project and its currently on about 300 pages but should have about 100 new players added each week.

Some of the scenarios in which a player gets called up:
  • Opening Day roster
  • September callup
  • To replace a traded or released player
  • To replace a disabled player
  • To replace a demoted player
