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 513 players as of the latest Facepack release. The missing list also includes 13 managers and 409 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.
2014 End-of-Season Facepack Release
I have completed and uploaded the 2014 end-of-season release of the Facepack. This version includes 405 new photos:
232 new player photos, including 160 new 2014 player debuts
10 new manager photos, including 2 new 2014 manager debut
37 new coach photos, including 5 new 2014 coach debuts
126 new umpire photos, including 1 new 2014 umpire debut
Since the last Facepack release in June, 13 formerly-missing players, two missing managers and 109 formerly-missing umpires have been found. I have also corrected four player ID errors. I renamed eight player photos, one manager photo, nine coach photos and four umpire photos to remain consistent with SABR and Baseball-Reference.com.
