[Tex/LaTex] Altering format.date in bst to place parentheses around year


I would like to add parentheses to the year in the bibliography of a paper (i.e., Kyle, A. S. (1985). etc.). Unfortunately, the journal .bst file is not quite correct on this point. The link to the .bst file is at:

I have been unsuccessful altering the format.date function to accomplish this based on related questions. Below is a MWE:

\documentclass[11pt, letterpaper,doublespacing]{article} 
    \RequirePackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amssymb,xcolor,graphicx,natbib,booktabs,geometry,chngcntr,comment,array,dcolumn,subfig, lscape, longtable}
\usepackage[labelfont=bf,labelsep=newline]{caption}  %Make Table and Figure bold
\theoremstyle{plain}  %COMMENTED 10/6/14

\cite{Kyle_Econ_1985} is a seminal paper.



Here is the .bib entry:

  author = {Kyle, Albert S.},
  title = {Continuous Auctions and Insider Trading},
  journal = {Econometrica},
  year = {1985}, 
  volume = {53},
  pages = {1315--1336},

Best Answer

Replace the date function with:

FUNCTION {format.date}
  { year empty$
      { "" }
      { year "(" swap$ * ")" *}
