Making your first request
Now that all prerequisites have been fulfilled, we’re ready to send our first request to the API!

Build the request

The request consists of the following components:
  • The base URL
  • A path parameter, in this example, we use [leagues]
  • A query string parameter, this is optional, so we are leaving this out for now
  • And finally, your API token
An example of a correctly authenticated request would be:
