If you're a fan of Major League Baseball—or any kind of baseball, for that matter—then you're no doubt familiar with Baseball-Reference.com. The site is a one-stop-shop for every baseball statistic ever. It's not very flashy and is no-frills in its approach to covering the game of baseball. But if you want stats, it's got stats. Lots and lots and lots of stats.
The people who run the site do know how to have a little bit of fun every now and then, though. And they proved it yesterday by creating a Baseball-Reference page for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Rudolph's page includes his batting average (.269 for his career), his position (shortstop), and even his contract info. And apparently, Rudolph is set to make about $130 million over the course of the next 10 years. Not bad for a 5'3", 375-pound reindeer who was "Not Allowed to Play in Reindeer Games" as recently as 2008.
You can peep Rudolph's entire B-R profile over here. Well done, guys, well done.
