Our Leaderboards Are Going To Change

We are currently in the process of updating our leaderboards interface. As part of this update, we have already released a quick leaderboard interface in our app, and we are now focusing on developing a modern, mobile-friendly web version of the complete leaderboards.

Just like when we made changes to our player pages, the upcoming modifications to the leaderboards will involve underlying HTML changes that could impact any data analysis tools you have built. To address this, we have created a legacy version of the page, which will remain accessible via a direct URL until the end of the 2023 season. Please note that normal navigation or parameter changes may not work as expected on the legacy page. Its purpose is to allow users to replace the URL in their tool and continue functioning until they have a chance to make any necessary adjustments.

To access the legacy version of the leaderboards, please use the following URL:

https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders-legacy.aspx

Here are some important points to keep in mind:

  • Directly accessing the URL path and search parameters will return the expected data. However, using it as a standard web tool might not work correctly and could potentially redirect to the standard leaders.aspx page.
  • Once we launch the new pages, it is possible that not all features currently available will be supported on the legacy leaderboards. This could include features such as custom teams and custom reports; these features will be available on the new pages.
  • We currently do not have plans to include the legacy version in our site navigation.
  • We will continue to provide support for any bugs and ensure that the legacy leaderboards function properly until at least the end of the 2023 season.
  • We do not plan to introduce any new features to the legacy version.





I build things here.

Is there an ETA for when these changes will take effect?
