Advanced Injury Database: RESTful Web Service Implemented

Well, for everyone that DOES know about it, I implemented a back-end RESTful web service so sabernerds around the world can get injury information out of my database without needing to go through the tedious front-end HTML forms or be forced to build/download their own database. In the near future, expect a similar PITCHf/x RESTful web service. Fun with programming!
