Red Book and Green BookWeds. marked a bittersweet day for researchers of Major League Baseball as the league moved completely into the digital age by making the 2009 editions of the Red and Green Books only available in PDF through the league’s media site.

For researchers, these books hold a wide range of information, and in the case of older versions, a window into the days when the leagues were controlled separately under the commissioner.

According to The Associated Press:

The guides to the National and American leagues started publication in the 1930s and have been an invaluable research tool for media. In the 1980s and perhaps the 1990s, an edition also was sold commercially to fans.

Baseball spokesman Rich Levin said Wednesday that not having printed editions would save the sport about $100,000.

Each of the books (so named for the color of their respective covers) covers some like ground, but in many cases, differing information. As an example, the 2009 editions now published have details on the current ownership groups in the American League’s Red Book, while the National League’s Green Book does not.

There is some common ground, however, in that league-wide information as it pertains to the business of baseball is sprinkled about between the two. It should be noted that the one book that is not published, and the one of most interest to those researching the business side of the league is the Blue Book. Older versions can be purchased on eBay or through the indispensable Bobby Plapinger who owns R. Plapinger Baseball Books out of Medford, OR. Landing current versions is a rare feat as the Blue Book contains material such as the MLB Constitution and other information designed for club executives only.

Here’s some tidbits of information from the 2009 Red and Green Books. It should be noted that these are league published documents, and therefore personal descriptions of those within are from the league’s point of view.

MLB GUIDELINES FOR MOVEMENT OF RETRACTABLE ROOFS (NL)

• The decision as to whether a game begins with the roof open or closed rests solely with the home club.

• If the game begins with the roof open:

It shall be closed only in the event of impending rain or other adverse weather conditions. The decision to close the roof shall be made by the home club, after consultation with the Umpire Crew Chief.

• The Umpire Crew Chief shall notify the visiting club, which may challenge the opening of the roof if it feels that a competitive imbalance will arise. In such an event, the Umpire Crew Chief shall make a final decision based on the merits of the challenge.

• (Arizona, Houston): Once the roof is closed during a game, it shall not be re-opened.

• (Milwaukee Only): The roof may be re-opened by following the procedures for opening the roof as detailed below.

• If the game begins with the roof closed:

• (Arizona, Houston, Milwaukee): It may be opened when, in the opinion of the home club, the climatic environment has reached a level where fan comfort and enjoyment will be best served by opening the roof to the natural atmospheric conditions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following guidelines should be applied opening the roof during a game.

• The roof may be opened only once during the game.

• The Umpire Crew Chief will be notified at the commencement of the inning that the roof will be opened at the inning’s conclusion.

• The Umpire Crew Chief shall notify the visiting club, which may challenge the opening of the roof if it feels that a competitive imbalance will arise. In such an event, the Umpire Crew Chief shall make a final decision based on the merits

of the challenge.

• The opening of the roof shall only commence between innings.

• (Arizona Only): The roof shall be opened in a pair of 2 minute; 15 second intervals; one interval at the conclusion of an inning and one interval at the conclusion of the next inning.
