For some time now, though, things have been different. One could easily say improved. There is an amazing website called Hardball Passport where one can create an account and enter the games one attended, and it will keep track of those games, the stadiums you visited, statistics based on the box score of those games, etc. As the folks who run the site put it, Hardball Passport is "a virtual shoebox of ticket stubs, bucket lists, arena-going challenges, personal stats and trip planning." One can earn various stamps along the way for milestones like attending an Opening Day game or a World Series game, X amount of games in a season, and so forth. And for us statheads, the ability to see, say, the top pitching performances of any game you have attended is just damn cool.
SoSGers, go try this out now. And after you've signed up, make a contribution to help them maintain a robust website and service. Maintaining and upgrading the site is time-consuming and expensive, and those guys do it out of love.
