To run the code examples, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token. For a more detailed explanation, please read about running actors via the API in Apify Docs.

import { ApifyClient } from 'apify-client';

// Initialize the ApifyClient with API token
const client = new ApifyClient({
    token: '<YOUR_API_TOKEN>',
});

// Prepare actor input
const input = {
    "matchListYears": [
        "2022"
    ],
    "matchListSeasonTypes": [
        "reg",
        "post"
    ],
    "matchListLeagues": [
        "mlb"
    ],
    "detailMatches": [],
    "matchDetailsLeague": "mlb",
    "newsLeague": "mlb"
};

(async () => {
    // Run the actor and wait for it to finish
    const run = await client.actor("vojtam/espn").call(input);

    // Fetch and print actor results from the run's dataset (if any)
    console.log('Results from dataset');
    const { items } = await client.dataset(run.defaultDatasetId).listItems();
    items.forEach((item) => {
        console.dir(item);
    });
})();
