Downloading 'baseballr' package

Hello,
I am currently having trouble downloading the 'baseballr' package.
install.packages("baseballr")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/Documents/R/win-library/3.5’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
package ‘baseballr’ is not available (for R version 3.5.1)

I checked and my R studio is updated to the most current form. Any thoughts?

The package is available on github:


The instructions there say to use:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("BillPetti/baseballr")

Thanks for responding.

I ran those lines of code.

devtools::install_github("BillPetti/baseballr")
Downloading GitHub repo BillPetti/baseballr@master
These packages have more recent versions available.
Which would you like to update?

I selected all to be updated and the downloading finished. However, baseballr still does not exist on my lists of packages.

What happens if you repeat the command

devtools::install_github("BillPetti/baseballr")

It eventually worked. Thanks for your help.
