Description Edit | History

An iconic major league baseball game that is so well known that it is exhibited in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The game is conducted with pitcher and batter cards constructed with statistical probabilities so they realistically reproduce the real-life performance of each player for the season represented. The gamer is placed in the role of the manager and/or general manager of a team and controls the batting order, the choice of a starting pitcher, game strategies (hit and run, steals, intentional walks, bunting, positioning of infielders, pinch hitters, defensive subsitutions, pitching changes, etc.). If a full season is played, the game produces amazingly realistic statistics at the player, team, and league levels. The game comes in two versions: a cards and dice version that has been around since 1962 and a computer version that automatically looks up play outcomes and compiles player, team and league statistics. Every year, Strat-O-Matic releases new player card sets based on the previous baseball season, seasons past, and some "greats" collections.

3 Groundball and Flyball Charts
I have upgraded and expanded this reference sheet to two pages as follows: The first page shows the outcome of groundballs and flyballs and rules governing further base advancement. The arrow styles are now distinct to avoid confusion. Notes on base stealing have been moved to Page 2. The second page shows some expanded information on base stealing, when to adjust fielding ratings, and other information.

5 Strat-O-Matic 6-team League Rules
This is a descriptive set of rules for the kind of 6-team League I have used to play Strat-O-Matic Baseball over the last 35 years. Its virtue is simplicity, and that has allowed play with the same partner (my wife) without complaint and with much enjoyment for that long period of time! Includes some charts and schedules.

3 Strat Scorecard for Printing
This is the scorecard we use for our games. It fits on a single page and we have the batting player update it on their turns. The diamonds to the right are for listing all of your fielding ratings, for quick look-up. Hope you find it useful.

4 Compact one-page scoresheet
Here is a little game aid I created to better track and record Stratomatic games. It is an Excel file that lets you print out compact scoresheets that fit on one page. You can print the team names and starting lineups or leave everything blank and fill them in. Features - Both teams' batters and pitchers fit on one page - Space at top for game information - Room for pinch hitters to appear in batting slot, instead of at bottom of boxscore, makes it easier to track progress of an inning - Runs/hits tallies for each inning - Game summary statistics - HR, RBI columns shaded for quick reference
