Help:Categories for people

From SABR Encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

The SABR Encyclopedia defines categories to organize articles about people who had particular roles within baseball, as well as significant roles outside the game.

The preferred way to place a person article in any of these categories is to use the indicated template, which should be placed in the pagetext for the person. The template handles making sure to assign the main article to the category, and not the subpage. In addition, some templates define additional fields which can be used to store more information about the person's role, and/or may take other actions (such as displaying a box) in addition to placing the person in the category.
