“I’m thrilled that Major League Baseball and Elias are continuing to evolve our partnership, building on decades of trust and experience to meet the demands of today’s baseball landscape,” said Elias Sports Bureau Owner & President Joseph Gilston. “We have been working to ensure the accuracy of baseball statistics in Major League Baseball since 1913, and now to bring that expertise to Minor League Baseball is a real honor.”

In addition to new services for MiLB, Elias and MLB will also expand their existing daily data validation efforts to include a broader range of stats and reports and conduct a thorough audit of all event-level historical data dating back to the early 20th century.

“Expanding our existing partnership with the Elias Sports Bureau to include our Minor League Baseball clubs will create a tremendous database of historical statistical information that will benefit teams and fans alike for years to come,” said Casey Brett, MLB’s Senior Vice President of Business Development. “The tremendous research team at Elias will continue to provide incredible information and insights that enhance our on-field product at the Major League and Minor League levels.”
