I just posted two files in the baseball download section. Both have to do with my revision of a baseball game called Dice Baseball that was published in the "Second Fireside Book of Baseball". The original game was invented by one D.J. Michael. I tried to make a little more accurate while keeping the speed of the original game. I view my game as The Universal Baseball Association with real names.

Not showing up yet, but I will be watching. Can you tell any more about how it plays, whether you can rate your own teams, etc.?

Yes, you can rate players. But as I explain in the intro, they are very general rating. But I go through that thoroughly. Once posted, everything will be explained in detail.

Downloaded the two files and was very impressed at the ratings and the system. Started to rate one of my favorite teams, the 77 Dodgters. I was fine rating my first hitter but then when I tried to do a pitcher and started with Burt Hooton I had a big problem. I have to question the strikeout ratings. Hooton had much fewer than a strikeout an inning and yet he received the highest strikeout rating a pitcher can get. That seems wrong even for a game that has some broad rating categories.

Hooton struck out 153 in 223 innings, giving him the highest rating I listed. Koufax in 1966 had 317 K in 323 innings, which would give him a 9 for strikeouts. When you have a real power pitcher like a Koufax, you have to add K places. Most pitcher fit in the One to six rating area, but there are some that you just must adjust. I should have said somewhere that the rating could be expanded. Because I'm primarily dealing with the 1950s, I haven't run across any players that need addition numbers for strike out. But the 1960s and 1970s might need 7s, 8s, and 9s for strike outs. I probably wouldn't go any higher than that, though. Just like I didn't go above AVG 12 for hitters.

When you get time, could you explain in a bit more detail how to expand strikeout or walk ratings for pitchers and maybe even for .400 hitters like Williams. I am very interested again in this game. Thanks.

Post subject: Revised Chart for Dice Baseball Two  PostPosted: Jun 13, 2014 - 11:30 AM

To answer most questions about expanding the ranges of batter and pitchers, I decided to post a new Bat&Pitch Chart with expanded ranges for batting, and for pitchers Hits Allowed ratings and Strike Out Ratings.

I wouldn't expand the ratings any more than I have done with this, but anyone can experiment with the game in any way.

That said, if one wants precise statistical ratings, then there are a ton of BB games that do that. What I wanted to do was create a simple game with simple ratings that are not very precise.

What I said in the introduction is what I wanted: I want to see a Norm Cash hit .361 every once in a while.

Thank you for the contribution. I enjoyed reading the introduction and learning about game included in the Second Fireside Book of Baseball.
