The Facepack was originally assembled by OOTP users Gambo and T_Wil1, with the help of many other OOTP users. In its original form it included Major League players, organized by the year they made their Major League debut, from 1871 through the current year. I took over Facepack management from T_Wil1 in 2010, and have since expanded the pack to include managers, coaches and umpires. The Facepack is, to my knowledge, the only photo pack that includes all on-field Major League personnel.
Over the past four years, thanks in great part to SABR, the missing player list has been reduced from 810 to 433 players as of the latest Facepack release. The missing list also includes 9 managers and 333 umpires. The Facepack includes a picture of every confirmed Major League coach. None are missing.
The Facepack is currently issued in two versions, one with players organized by debut year and the other with all player photos in a single folder. Both versions of the Facepack include exactly the same player images, and both include folders for managers, coaches and umpires.
2017 Pre-Season Facepack Release
I have completed and uploaded the 2017 pre-season release of the Facepack. This version includes 445 new photos:
347 new player photos, including 257 2016 player debuts
8 new manager photos, including 3 2016 manager debuts
61 new coach photos, including 29 2016 coach debuts and 22 2017 coach debuts
29 new umpire photos, including 3 2016 umpire debuts
Since the last Facepack release in March 2016, 55 formerly-missing players and 26 formerly-missing umpires have been found. I have also corrected one player ID error, one manager ID error and one umpire ID error. I renamed nine player photos to remain consistent with SABR and Baseball-Reference.com.
