Find a specific stat

Every statistic we offer within an API will be located in its own Statistics Summary section.

Let's say we are looking for player triples in a game for MLB.

Navigate to the MLB Stats Summary page within the Baseball project.








Reference the Table of Contents bar on the right side for the relevant category. In this case, we're interested in Player Statistics - Hitting












Click on the dropdown beneath the statistics to find all endpoints which may include player triples.










You may then search through the individual endpoint pages to find more info, or browse the actual data.

To find the triples statistic you can once again navigate to Player Hitting Stats (Game) for all player hitting stats or CTRL+F (Command+F) to search all data points within the endpoint.




Feel free to click 200 to find curated sample data or use your API key in the sandbox to return real sports data.
