The season level Player Lookup report is found in the SEASON LEVEL – LOOKUP section of reports. This report is best to see data on an individual player and how they compare to the rest of the league. It is meant to show information on a player all at once, without needing to load separate charts for different areas of their game.
Season Level reports can tell you statistics at the end of each regular season since 2005, and at the end of each playoff series since 2011.
Upon launch you will already see data load for the default selected player (Ohno, Yudai in honor of his 2020 Sawamura Award victory).
Filters are options that allow you to customize the report to only show what you want. There are only two filterable options in this report – Player and Year.
NOTE: If you are viewing these reports on a mobile device such as an iPad, you will need to click twice to set a filter. Once to navigate “into” the filter options, and a second time to make any selections.
A player can be searched for and selected by clicking on the player dropdown.
In the search area you can search for the player using either Japanese or English/Romaji, then selecting their name from the results.
For the Year filter, click on it to select the particular years you’re interested in.
The remaining options at the top are an INFO button which details data specific precautions or limitations, a LAST UPDATED visual showing the most recent data that has been added to the report, and a NIGHT MODE toggle.
The first visual shows biographic information on the player and their position.
The first set of charts (on batting, pitching and fielding) will show cumulative statistics on the selected player separated only by regular season or playoff series.
Following these three charts will be another set of three charts but split up by year. These charts will ONLY show stats on the regular season each year.
The final section of the report is a number of line charts comparing the currently selected player against the league average in that specific metric (e.g., the first line chart is for Batting Average). These line charts ignore any year selection made at the top as the data shown is broken up by year regardless. There is a filter defaulted to show just these stats against the regular season, though you can expand it to include the playoffs as well (or only show the playoffs or a particular series).
