Baseball Reference is goin’ mobile

A few weeks ago, I was out and about and had the need to look up some baseball stats.  I have Baseball Reference punched in as a bookmark on my Android smartphone.  I wouldn’t say perusing the site was painful… I actually was able to find whatever stat I was looking for.  But quite honestly, it was laborious and I thought boy, Sean really needs a mobile version of this site or maybe even an app. 

Huzzah!! Baseball Reference now has gone mobile!

And it looks sharp, too.  I just gave it a quick test run and so far it passes my test. 

1) it’s easy to navigate especially considering how complicated this particular site is.

2) the text is clear as a bell as very easy to read

3)  and comprehensible.  Most everything you see on the regular website can be accessed via the mobile site. 

So bookmark http://m.bbref.com on your mobile device (you actually don’t have to.  Browsing to Baseball Reference’s normal web site with a mobile device will take you there). 

Thanks to Sean at Baseball Reference for going the extra step.
