Overview of data and stats coverage history

Not all current stats and game data appear in all the reports. Some began appearing only after a few years, and some as late as 2010

Sometimes the data would only start appearing in the JSON feeds, sometimes it first shows up in the HTML reports. A rather useful PB live feed is no longer available. Old boxscore HTML reports also began carrying some data before it appeared in other reports or the live feed. We intend to make old reports available later.
