tnfoto baseball photos website

Three years ago I joined this forum upon recommendation from some of my friends in SABR. Over the past three years I have thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie within our group, and have made many new friends here. Today in celebration of my third “anniversary,” I am introducing a new website where I will track my photo projects in more detail than I can on the OOTP forums. You can find links in my updated signature line.

For those of you who may not know it already I am not a sim player, but a baseball researcher. My primary focus for the past five or six years has been pictorial history, with the objective being to positively identify each Major League player, manager, coach and umpire. Now I’m beginning to work on minor league players as well.

My website will focus on the progress I’m making toward my goals, and will also allow me to organize projects such as team packs in a more orderly way than is possible in a thread of chronological posts. On my site you will find separate pages for the facepack, team packs and other photo projects. Starting with the next facepack release (tentatively scheduled around the start of spring training), rather than link to my FileFront directory, I will be posting a link to this facepack page, from which you will be able to download the latest version of the facepack and the updated missing player list. If there is enough interest, I may also maintain a live missing player list on the site.

In addition to baseball photos, I (along with fellow SABR member Bruce Brown) have run a daily baseball trivia email service for the past 15 years. You can find separate pages for baseball trivia and custom theme teams, with subscription links for anyone interested.

For those who are willing and able, I have included a PayPal donation link on each page. If I have helped fill holes in your collection, helped you with a project, or if you have enjoyed the facepack updates and enhancement, please consider making a donation. Donations will help me to continue to enhance the facepack, fill custom requests, and find and share photos with the group. I appreciate any contributions.

My thanks to everyone here for making the past three years such an enjoyable experience. I look forward to many more!

Facepack Update Released

I have just finished uploading the spring training 2012 release of the facepack, with over 600 new photos and more than 1,000 additional updates. Please visit the facepack page on my website for complete details and download links.

Along with the facepack release, Pegasus27 has agreed to allow me to provide a near-real-time version of the Uniforms I Need (UIN) list on my website. You can find the latest version of the UIN list on the Pegasus27 UIN List page. I will update the list whenever I see a new UIN post on the forum.

Note that I am also posting this notice to the Gambo-and-T_Wil1 thread. In the future I will continue to post facepack updates to the Gambo-and-T_Wil1 thread, but will make all other website update announcements in this thread.

The next website update I have planned is a listing of source websites I use when hunting for photos. Look for an update announcement later this week!

tnfoto Major League and Minor League Image Databases

Along with the latest facepack release (including the first of the 2012 debuts), I am now offering my Major League and minor league image databases for those who would like to track and organize their photo collection. Right now I only offer Microsoft Access versions of the databases, but feel free to ask if you would like a different version.

You can view more information about the databases, as well as some sample screenshots at my new tnfoto Photo Database page.

I have just uploaded the 2012-13 offseason Facepack update. It includes 480 new photos:

31 new coach images
12 new manager images
421 new player images
16 new umpire images

This release includes all 206 players who debuted in 2012, 40 formerly-missing players, 1 formerly-missing manager and 3 formerly-missing umpires.

Facepack Update Released

I have completed and uploaded the first 2013 mid-season release of the Facepack (download links below). This version includes 244 new photos:
188 new player photos, including 50 new 2013 player debuts
7 new manager photos, including 3 new 2013 manager debuts
39 new coach photos, including 34 new 2013 coach debuts
10 new umpire photos

Since the last Facepack release in January 2013, 16 formerly-missing players, 1 formerly-missing manager and 2 formerly-missing umpires have been found. 26 ID errors were also corrected in this release.

I have been unhappy with the file retention limits on GameFront, so I am hosting this version of the Facepack on my Google Drive. Please let me know if you have trouble accessing or downloading.


You can see additional details about this release, along with download links, on my Facepack page.

PCL Photopack

I have started cataloging minor league photos, and have begun assembling a PCL photopack. I started with the 1980s and am working forward and backward from that point. I hope to have the first version of the pack available within a month, which would include players who appeared in the PCL between 1979 and 1991. Based on interest and photo availability I will continue to update the pack and add new years regularly.

Have you come across Mark Smith from the 1983 Tacoma Tigers ?

Minor League Team Photos

I have added a new page on my website featuring the SABR Pictorial History Committee minor league team photo spreadsheet. This spreadsheet lists the minor league team photos available in various guides from 1895-1943. Where available the page numbers are listed. Many of the guides can be found at the Library of Congress or on Archive.org.

The spreadsheet can be viewed here.

Team Packs Updated

The team packs I had uploaded to GameFront were no longer accessible, so I moved them to a new, permanent host. All of the team pack links are again live and I added several new team packs from 1927, 1928 and 1929. You can view the list of available packs here.

Both versions of the Facepack (single player folder or player debut year folder versions) include a Managers directory that has a photo of each of the 669 managers who have been "found." Wherever possible they measure 180x270 pixels.
