I improved the grading to class C since I've written as much as I think I can for this article. It would likely help to have history on the stat if we could maybe get info regarding Bill James' initial invention of it. --Tkbrett (talk) 17:25, 24 December 2017 (UTC)

When did Bill James invent speed score?[edit]

As far as I can tell, the claim that Bill James first presented Speed Score in the 1987 edition of the Baseball Abstract is unfounded.[1] So when was it introduced?

With the Wayback Machine I was able to see that it was at least in the appendix of the 1987 Abstract. I'd still like to be able to see the actual text, though — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tkbrett (talkcontribs) 21:34, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
