Every now and then, as a baseball fan, I end up on Baseball-Reference.com – a major repository of all stats related to baseball. It blows my mind how much data is handled on this website. And it’s updated all the time, it’s always up to date.
The interface is always fun for me as well. It has a classic web design feel, like a cross between a modern data driven website and something that might have popped up in the late 90’s. But in a good way.
Links everywhere. Each page has tons of links jumping around to more data and information. It seems like just about everything you want to know more about is a link to a page with deeper details. It’s great.
To me, Baseball-Reference.com is a grand example of what the combo of HTML, CSS and a data back-end was intended to be used for.
