Sportradar is deeply committed to providing you the very best Major League Baseball data and content coverage. Take advantage of three new enhancements to our MLB API this season!
The Ponle Acento Initiative (v5 and v6)
In an effort to accommodate Major League Baseball’s Ponle Acento initiative, Sportradar will be adding Spanish accent marks to player names beginning on March 30th. This initiative was started by Robinson Cano last year in an effort to recognize the influence of the game’s Latino athletes.
This change will affect all feeds where players’ names appear. For example, Robinson Cano will now be Robinson Canó and Felix Hernandez will now be Félix Hernández. This change will only be present for players that have specifically submitted this request.
Today’s sports fan craves deep insight and analysis presented in an easy-to-digest, visual format. We’ve compiled some of the top players for teams headed to the March Madness tournament to showcase how the X-Y coordinates of shot location can be used to tell better stories. Shot location is charted and made available in our NCAA Men’s Basketball API.
The newest version of our MLB API came with great new features and added functionality.
One of our favorite additions is the ability to pinpoint pitches with X/Y coordinates. When combined with our pitch type and velocity data, you are able to provide deep insights about pitcher’s arsenal and their ability to get hitters to chase pitches outside of the strike zone. The data also provides the ability to track hitter performance against specific pitches and locations to reveal how well they can command the strike zone. Finally, this data also opens up new depths for analyzing catcher and umpire performance.
