Inconsistent player names?
Issue No. 246
Sometime around mid-May, it appears that player names started being returned slightly differently by the API (e.g. "Jose Bautista" became "José Bautista". Is there anything to explicitly explain this change in encoding?
For baseball players, mlb.com (most of the time) is the canonical source for how player names are spelled. Earlier this year, mlb.com added diacritics so some names, particularly the Central and South American names, have been updated.
