Cat box on Frank White[edit]

Hmm. The cat box on Frank White (baseball) reads

Categories: 1978 American League All-Stars | 1979 American League All-Stars | 1981 American League All-Stars | 1982 American League All-Stars | 1986 American League All-Stars | Kansas City Royals players | Major league second basemen | 1950 births

It could read

Categories: 1978-thru-1979 American League All-Stars | 1981-thru-1982 American League All-Stars | 1986 American League All-Stars | Kansas City Royals players | Major league second basemen | 1950 births

increasing readability and reducing articles' cat-box bloat. The costs involved are

If nobody explains here what a lousy idea this is, i may remember to come back and implement those two ranges & re-cat White accordingly as a pilot case.

See 21-time All Star player Hank Aaron for an even more bloated case. Since many All Star players appear more than one year, would it not make more sense to have just one category for each league, or perhaps at the most one category per league per decade (e.g. Category:National League All-Stars in the 1960s). The breakdown can them be moved to a list of players for each game (possibly there already is such an article, I'm not sure). — sjorford (talk) 12:07, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

There are 809 pages in this category[edit]

I concede that subcategorizing by individual game is excessive...might we consider categorizing by decade? Purplebackpack89≈≈≈≈ 01:39, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
