Crowdsourced Contract Project

At FanGraphs we talk a lot about contracts, but we’ve never had contract data on our player pages or in an easily exportable form.

We’ve already got the ball rolling by entering about 300 contracts, but there’s still a lot of work to do. Our staff will of course continue to enter in contract data, but if you want to speed up the project you can help us by entering in missing contract data.

Any contract data you enter will be sent for approval to an editor.  Assuming the contract data is correct and mostly complete with proper attribution, it will shortly appear on the player pages along with attribution to your FanGraphs username.

All the contract data is available for easy export here and is updated as new contracts enter the system.

You can enter a contract from any player’s page page by clicking on the “Add Contract” link. If a player already has a contract, you can edit it if you think there’s incomplete information, or you can add a historical contract if you like.

If you run into any errors, issues, or have any questions about entering contract data, please let us know. Thank you for helping make FanGraphs better!
