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.
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.
