MLB’s Gameday Atypicals: Stadium info missing in game.xml files.

So by the time I’m writing this post, this bug has already been fixed( or not ).Days back I was scrapping some winter leagues data and I realized the stadium info was not there for the ongoing winter seasons( e.g. LMP, LIDOM, LBPRC, etc. ). Here’s a good example:

<game type="R" local_game_time="15:15" game_pk="569835" game_time_et="04:15 PM" gameday_sw="Y">
<team type="home" code="jal" file_code="t674" abbrev="JAL" id="674" name="Jalisco" name_full="Charros de Jalisco" name_brief="Jalisco" w="20" l="24" division_id="" league_id="132" league="LMP"/>
<team type="away" code="cul" file_code="t678" abbrev="CUL" id="678" name="Culiacan" name_full="Tomateros de Culiacan" name_brief="Culiacan" w="27" l="17" division_id="" league_id="132" league="LMP"/>
<stadium id="" name="" location="" venue_w_chan_loc=""/>
</game>

Anyways,  although this data was not available there in the game file,  I was able to get the info from the linescore.xml file. I reported the issue to Tom Tango ( @tangotiger )  🙂 who forward my finding to the right point of contact.
