Sports Information API

Tonight I stumbled across Sportradar.us, which seems to be the former SportsData.  Interestingly, they have APIs to deliver all sorts of sports information, including comprehensive NCAA men's basketball coverage -- including play-by-play data and even location data, i.e., where on the court a shot was taken (!). 

The bad news is that the lowest pricing tier is $500/month.  So not something I'll be buying for Christmas.  But interesting.

  1. I found another site for downloading data, www.fantasydata.com. They only give this years data, as far as I can tell. But they have a developer subscription for about $30 / month. They have lots of data for each game played.

  2. Eric, thanks for that pointer. I've sent them an inquiry to see if they have NCAA historical data...
