1978 New York Yankees Season omissions[edit]

Hello and good evening. Go to that page, then starters by position. I believe Mickey Rivers was omitted, he was the regular center fielder that season, and Cliff Johnson was the regular DH along with Jim Spencer. Roy White was a back up left fielder that year, was omitted. I would add myself, but I need your help on this. Thank you and have a good night and a good week.2601:581:8000:21B0:9D42:441E:3EF3:B09A (talk) 23:07, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

It looks like they were left out of the Starters by position section though. I haven't double-checked all of them, but Rivers started 135 games, all of them in CF per BR. I'm not sure what the criteria are for inclusion in this section, but it seems like an oversight. EricEnfermero (Talk) 00:02, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

Consider changing injured icon for Template:Player?[edit]

I posed a question at Template talk:Player#Use of image with hover text for DL, but I figured I'd advertise it here. Basically, the template uses File:Injury icon 2.svg to indicate a player on the DL, but that alone is not sufficiently clear. Hover text was added, as was alt-text, and perhaps more significantly, Template:MLB roster includes the icon in its legend. I'd suggest replacing the icon with the straightforward "DL" (perhaps as DL) but a number of pages use {{Player}} without {{MLB roster}} (e.g., 1977 Dallas Cowboys season#Roster). As an outsider, I just figured I'd raise it. ~ Amory (utc) 01:39, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

1961 Cincinnati Reds season page and 1965 Minnesota Twins season page.[edit]

Good day. On the 1961 Reds page, go where it says other batters and move that where it says Pitching-starting pitchers, then move Pitching-starting pitchers above box that says Joey Jay as first entry.The titles are misplaced and I am afraid I will botch that section. I can fill in the players. 1965 Twins page-won't let me enter Dick Stigman in the other pitchers category. I added to this page a few days ago but won't let me add that. Thanks for your help and have a good day.2601:581:8000:21B0:304C:CD3D:3958:6A95 (talk) 11:43, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

There was just a template error on the Reds page, the data wasnt actually out of place... There is nothing on the Twins page that should prevent you from adding data. Just make sure you dont mess up the template markers. Spanneraol (talk) 12:35, 30 July 2018 (UTC)


Regarding this edit: in the sentence "In 1974, he hit 23 home runs and drove in 83 runs for the Expos' Triple-A affiliate, the Memphis Blues," should it be "Triple-A" or "triple-A"? isaacl (talk) 16:18, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Definitely "Triple-A". We typically follow professional baseball's capitalization of "Triple-A", "Double-A", and variants of "Class A". NatureBoyMD (talk) 16:23, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Grammatically, it isn't a title, but a contraction of AAA, so when used as an adjective as in the quoted sentence, my inclination would be not to use an initial uppercase. I appreciate, though, the distinction may be more fine than desirable. isaacl (talk) 21:19, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Although they derive from "AAA", "AA" and so on, the actual terms are indeed "Triple-A", "Double-A" and so forth, as seen here, so using the capital is correct. oknazevad (talk) 23:50, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Well, that's a page with all-caps, so it's not too revealing regarding capitalization. Plus the tiers are titles on that page, so it would be appropriate to have an initial uppercase letter, just like at the start of a sentence. isaacl (talk) 04:09, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
My point, though, is that the actual name of the classification is "Triple-A", not "AAA", though the latter is also used as an abbreviation. oknazevad (talk) 10:29, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
