Download Lahman’s Baseball Database

The updated version of the database contains complete batting and pitching statistics from 1871 to 2013, plus fielding statistics, standings, team stats, managerial records, post-season data, and more. For more details on the latest release, please read the documentation.

The database can be used on any platform, but please be aware that this is not a standalone application. It is a database that requires Microsoft Access or some other relational database software to be useful.


Please help support the Baseball Archive. The database is free, but there are real costs associated with maintaining it and making it available for download. The more popular this site becomes, the more expensive it is to keep things going. Please consider making a donation as a show of your support. Like the PBS folks say, we need your support if we’re going to survive. Click here for more information.

Download Previous Versions

Some third-party applications don’t work with newer versions of the database. For that reason, we’re making some earlier versions available for download. Please be advised that no support exists for these versions. All questions about using the database with third-party applications should be directed to the makers of that software.
