cube

TheBaseballCube.com website has used three different URL and ID formats. The examples below all link to the same page for Cal Ripken; the first two redirect to the third:

  1. http://thebaseballcube.com/players/R/Cal-Ripken.shtml
  2. http://thebaseballcube.com/profile.asp?P=Cal-Ripken
  3. http://thebaseballcube.com/players/profile.asp?ID=550

This template has been updated to generate the correct URL for any of these three formats:

1. {{Baseballstats | cube = R/Cal-Ripken }}

2. {{Baseballstats | cube = Cal-Ripken }}

3. {{Baseballstats | cube = 550 }}

The warning message may be removed by updating the |cube= parameter to use the ID number. As per the two associated tracking categories shown below, the conversion to numeric IDs in articles using this template is 88.5% complete (select Purge to update).
