Getting the Data

Go to http://gd2.mlb.com/components/game/mlb/.

Click on any year 2007 or later, then on the month, then on the day, then on the specific game, and finally on pbp (play-by-play).  

Search for a pitch by the pitcher that threw it or the batter when it was thrown.  Either way, you will see a collection of files labeled with a six-digit number (e.g. 123456.xml).  There is a unique six-digit number for each player.  

You can get the names associated with the numbers by going back to the screen where you clicked on pbp and instead click on either batters or pitchers.
