A few more things I thought about last night.

I've already stated when I distribute singles, I try to even them up as much as possible. If someone has 12 singles, for example, every section gets three:

1Bf: 11-13
1B7: 14-16
1B8: 17-21
1B9: 22-24 3+3+3+3=12

But, if that doesn't work, my first call is to give the infield single numbers one fewer, and after that, the field furthest away from where the batter would pull to. Go back to my example with Conor Jackson. If he had 11 singles, here's how I distribute:

1Bf: 11-12
1B7: 13-15
1B8: 16-18
1B9: 21-23 2+3+3+3=11

But if he had 10 singles, I'd distribute this way:

1Bf: 11-12
1B7: 13-15
1B8: 16-18
1B9: 21-22 2+3+3+2=10

That way, more singles are "solid" shots to the outfield, and in the case of the 10-single example, more are pulling to left and center field.

By the way, I do just the opposite with pitchers. I assume all pitchers are facing hitters going the opposite way (RH vs. LH, LH vs. RH), so the majority of singles against them will go to the SAME field as they pitch from. In the case of, say, Dan Haren of the Angels (a right-hander), if he had 10 singles against him, his numbers would go like this:

1Bf: 11-12
1B7: 13-14
1B8: 15-17
1B9: 18-22 2+2+3+3=10

I hope this helps.

You can even combine many things -- use the player's speed ratings, check spray charts, etc. Use as much helpful information as you like to get the cards you want.

Hi Dave and group,

My apologies for neglecting the Tabletop Baseball Games website: http://tabletopbaseball.org/ A remote assignment has limited my network access and free time to maintain the site.

As an update, I have just added the 2008, 2010 and 2011 statis pro baseball cards sets produced by emcline to the main website. You can now download the card set from Statis Pro Baseball Cards page: http://tabletopbaseball.org/spc.html

The cards sets are also available for download from the "Files" section of this group: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/tabletopbaseball/files

Thanks to emcline for taking the time to make the cards and sharing them with us.

Tabletop Baseball Games - http://tabletopbaseball.org/

Don't have to apologize. It took me nearly eight months to get the 2011 cards out, though I didn't think I was going to find the time.

Again, if you haven't been to the Tabletop Baseball Games site, you can still download the .zip file here at Files/Statis Pro Baseball/2011mlbsp.ZIP.
