Greenmonster

Greenmonster is a toolkit for baseball stat enthusiasts or sabermetricians to retrieve play-by-play stats from MLB's Gameday XML data. The tool provides the ability to spider Gameday XML data from MLB's servers for personal research.

Usage

Set a location where you'll save your local games after downloading.

# Set games folder location

Download a game from MLB.

# Pull MLB's 7/4/2011 Toronto @ Boston game
spider = Greenmonster::GameSpider.new(game_id: "gid_2011_07_04_tormlb_bosmlb_1", sport_code: "mlb")
spider.pull

Download games from a given date.

# Pull all MLB games for today
