Research request

Need a source. Many "RS" (a dubious classification with regard to early baseball), such as the Britannica, assert that Philadelphia N.L. officially adopted the name Phillies in 1890, making it the oldest team name in American professional sports. But I'll be darned if I can find a primary source backing up the assertion. Anyone? Solicitr (talk) 20:27, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Philadelphia Phillies all-time roster needs an update

All articles in the Philadelphia Phillies all-time roster article need a massive overhaul. It looks like these lists haven't been updated in nine years, which is a shame in a sense. The Philadelphia Phillies all-time roster (I-J) for instance still lists Raúl Ibañez as on the active roster. The lists need massive statistical and player overhauls, and probably lead updates too for new players. I asked the author about this about a week ago but that user hasn't edited for a while. If someone wants to take up the mantle on these that would be great. I would also like to note the ref label template that Template:Philadelphia Phillies all-time roster/Key uses, and the corresponding note label templates the articles use has been depreciated for some time now.

Will need to be addressed to keep FL status.--Bagumba (talk) 06:53, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Technically every team all-time roster needs to be updated, other than the Dodgers one that I have kept up-to-date... though this one probably should be a priority to keep its status. Spanneraol (talk) 13:03, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

Dave Freisleben

There's an image of Dave Freisleben on his article showing him in a Padres uniform. I'm not 100% sure about all the rules on copyright images and stuff, but I'd like to change the image to one on the net that I find more relevant. How do I do that unobjectionably? I think I made that word up, but I think you all get it. Also, the line "National League Player of the Week (May 24-30, 1976" was removed from his infobox. Why? I get not including something like that for, say, Pete Rose or Derek Jeter or anyone else who has a series of far more impressive career highlights, but when someone has a far less glorious career, why not include items like that in an infobox? I believe standard rules on what is and isn't acceptable for a career highlight is ridiculous. Would I include "Topps Rookie All-Star" on Joe Morgan's page? No. Would I include it on Jose Alberto Laboy? Yeah, why not?Johnny Spasm (talk) 13:19, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

For the infobox stuff there's no reason to pad it out with tiny accomplishments, that's what the body of the article is for (which, incidentally, is not in Laboy's article). As for the image, it depends if it's free use or not. Regardless of quality free always beats nonfree. What image is it? I can check to see if it's usable. Wizardman 19:58, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
Freisleben modeled the "Washington Stars" uniform when the Padres were going to move to Washington before the 1974 season. Images of him modeling these uniforms are on the net. As far as padding an infobox, yes, tiny accomplishments are nothing more than padding on major stats' infoboxes. For the ones who didn't really accomplish much, I see no harm in including them.Johnny Spasm (talk) 22:36, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Major League Baseball postseason results

I started--then abandoned--an effort to built Postseason results page for Major League Baseball (see also NFL playoff results), and I want to get this project taken out of my hands with more collaborators. I plan on moving this sandbox draft to Major League Baseball postseason results in the near future. -Piranha249 21:51, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

The 1000 Destubbing Challenge

Would anybody be interested in a Resource: WikiProject Baseball/The 1000 Destubbing Challenge to see 1000 baseball-related articles destubbed? Not a contest but it might be something which works to help improve existing content. If there is more than five people interested I'll create it.+ Encyclopædius 11:26, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

I would be. Sadly these days i dunno if we have 5 regulars expanding articles though. Wizardman 19:32, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
Sure, but tbh, my interest in editing baseball-related articles is certainly down what with baseball being on hold. I know, I know, KBO and CPBL. It's not the same. :( – Muboshgu (talk) 20:34, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
