## Data set only goes through 1955
## Can get a more complete record from the Fielding data frame
## or from the Appearances data (see below)

## Output directly from the FieldingOF data

## Barry Bonds (no records: post-1955 player)
FieldingOF %>% 
   filter(playerID == "bondsba01") 

## Willie Mays (first few years)
FieldingOF %>% 
  filter(playerID == "mayswi01") 

## Ty Cobb (complete)
FieldingOF %>% 
  filter(playerID == "cobbty01") 

## One way to get OF game information from the Fielding data
## Note: OF games != sum(LF, CF, RF) because players can switch
## OF positions within a game. Players can also switch from
## other positions to outfield during a game. OF represents
## the number of games a player started in the outfield.
Fielding %>%
   select(playerID, yearID, stint, POS, G) %>%
   filter(POS %in% c("LF", "CF", "RF", "OF")) %>%
   tidyr::spread(POS, G, fill = 0) %>%
   filter(playerID == "trumbma01")

## Another way is through the Appearances data (no stint).
## Provides a somewhat nicer table than the above.

## Mark Trumbo (active player)
Appearances %>%
   select(playerID, yearID, G_lf, G_cf, G_rf, G_of) %>%
   filter(playerID == "trumbma01")

## A slightly better format, perhaps
Appearances %>%
  select(playerID, yearID, G_lf, G_cf, G_rf, G_of) %>%
  rename(LF = G_lf, CF = G_cf, RF = G_rf, OF = G_of) %>%
  filter(playerID == "trumbma01")

## Willie Mays (1951-1973)
Appearances %>%
  select(playerID, yearID, G_lf, G_cf, G_rf, G_of) %>%
  filter(playerID == "mayswi01")

## Joe DiMaggio (1936-1951)
Appearances %>%
  select(playerID, yearID, G_lf, G_cf, G_rf, G_of) %>%
  filter(playerID == "dimagjo01")
