Quick Access to Baseball Player Statistics

SUMMARY: Search multiple baseball statistics (sabermetrics) sites for information on a particular player inside Google Chrome.

Watching regular season or playoff baseball games, or participating in a fantasy baseball league, and need to settle a dispute about the stats of particular players? Who has hit more home runs over the last five seasons, whose ERA rises in the playoffs, or who keeps continually grounding into double plays?

While you can visit statistics sites individually for the information you desire, the Baseball Player Search extension adds a button directly inside Google Chrome where you can access information from seven different baseball statistics (sabermetrics) sites.

1. From Google Chrome, visit the Baseball Player Search page.

2. Click the "Install" button.

3. Click "Install" in the "Confirm Installation" dialog box when prompted.
