  • List of seasons (List of school_mascot_baseball seasons, i.e. List of Florida Gators baseball seasons) Examples

Do you want to maintain a season article for your favorite program(s) on Wikipedia, but need some help getting started? If so, list your program below so that members of the project can create it for you.

Template adopted by status comments
{{CBSB schedule}} - adapt existing football and basketball templates to work for baseball. Rather that adapt perhaps make 2012_Florida_Gators_baseball_team#Schedule or 2012_Seattle_Mariners_season#Regular_season into a template or a multipart template. It might be of interest to make this adaptable to MLB as well.
MLB already has one - see {{MLB Schedule Start}}, {{MLB Schedule Entry}}, {{MLB Schedule End}}. Suggest adapting these for college rather than baseball and football ones. Billcasey905 (talk) 17:36, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Any idea why no one is using it [1] ben_b (talk) 08:40, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Saw that too, no idea. Billcasey905 (talk) 13:09, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Don't see much adaptation necessary either, anyone else see a reason we can't just use these? Billcasey905 (talk) 13:10, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Only reason I can see that we might want to adapt rather than just use is some schools have extra columns not shown in that template. Additionally we might want to make another template to do the wrapper stuff some schools do where it hides/shows schedule by month, etc. ben_b (talk) 22:06, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
OK I'll play with it after all the 2012 Conference Tournament pages are set up. Billcasey905 (talk) 22:08, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Other:

  • South Florida–UCF rivalry#Baseball - I seem to be missing a few games. According the USF yearbook, I'm missing at least 3 USF wins while according to the UCF yearbook, I'm missing 3 UCF wins and have an extra USF win (the two schools claim different records). Can I get someone else to take a look and see what I'm missing? Elisfkc (talk) 20:37, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
