# Statis Pro Baseball Card Formulas

STATIS-PRO BASEBALL PLAYER CARD FORMULAS Baseball batters Classification OBR: Ability to run on base, and can be measured by runs scored and times on base. The easiest method is to divide runs scored by times on base for each player, then divide into five categories. OBR: A Very fast and runs bases perfectly OBR: B Strong, mobile runner. Makes few mistakes OBR: C Average runner and where most should be rated. OBR: D Slow and moves mostly on two-out hits and extra base hits. OBR: E Very slow. Painfully slow. Almost never gets there. Classification SP: Steal ability SP: A Usually steals 30+ bases per season. SP: B Steals between 20 and 29 bases per season. SP: C About average with 10-19 steals per season. SP: D Has only a few steals, 1-9 SP: E Never, never steals. Classification HR: Hit and run based on Strikeout times. The key is the number of strikeout numbers allotted to the player card. HR: 2 No strikeouts appear next to K rate on card. HR: 1 One or two strikeout numbers next to K rate on card. HR: 0 Everyone else. Classification BD: Relates to getting runs with men on and measures home run ability. Note that when a player is rated BD-2, you must deduct one Home Run number from his regular card rating. BD: 2 Hits 30+ home runs per season. BD: 1 Hits between 25-29 home runs per season. BD: 0 Everyone else. Classification CD: Measures ability to turn double play. CD: 2 High double play involvement. CD: 1 Good double play involvement. CD: 0 Everyone else. Classification SAC: Based on actual number of sacrifices. You can adjust for those with fewer at bats. SAC: AA 8+ sacrifices per season. SAC: BB 5-7 sacrifices. SAC: CC 2-4 sacrifices. SAC: DD 0-1 sacrifices. Classification INJ: Relates to how the man was used and his ability to stay in lineup.. INJ: 0 Played in every game. INJ: 1 Played in all but one game. INJ: 2 Missed only a few games. INJ: 3 Missed 4-5 games. INJ: 4 Missed 6-10 games. INJ: 5 Missed 11-20 games. INJ: 6 Missed 21-30 games INJ: 7 Missed about half the season. INJ: 8 Did not appear very often. Classification Cht: Rates a batter for hitting power. "P" indicates power and "N" indicates normal. L, R or S indicates which side of the plate the batter hits from. Cht: P All batters who have at least 4 home run numbers, or hit at least 15 home runs. NUMERICAL SEQUENCE Range of 64 numbers is base 8; 11-18, 21-28, etc. When allotting numbers for hits, rotate according to hos hitter hits. If a LH hitter has 7 singles, allot 2 to left, 2 to center and the remaining 3 to right field. CREATING THE CARDS Add the number of walks and times hit by pitch to the actual number of at bats. Take the sum and divide by 128 to get the "evaluation factor." As an example, if a hitter was at bat 450 times, walked 37 times and was hit by 3 pitches, he would have a total of 450+37+3 or 490. Divide 490 by 128 to get 3.8. Say the hitter had 100 singles, 12 doubles, one triple and 3 home runs. Divide each by 3.8: 100 singles divided by 3.8=26.3 12 doubles divided by 3.8=3.1 1 triple divided by 3.8=0.26 3 home runs divided by 3.8=0.78 (Round up over .5) Placement on the card: Deduct 11 from singles before placing on card. Therefore, our hitter would have 15 singles (using numbers 11-27 on the card), 3 doubles (28-32), 0 triples (0.26 is not over 0.5) and 1 home run (33)To get the number of walks and strikeouts, repeat the same as above, but subtract 7 from the walk total before placing on the batter card, and deduct 11 from the strikeout total before placing on the card. PITCHER CARDS PB measurement: This is pitcher's ability to control a game, and ratings vary from a low of 2-5 to a high of 2-9. PB is measured through ERA. Take all pitchers and rate by ERA, then divide as shown below: 2-9: 5% fall into this group. 2-8: 10% fall into this group. 2-7: 30% fall into this group. 2-6: 40% fall into this group. 2-5: 15% fall into this group. Exceptions: 2-5 pitchers (if the pitcher wins 12 games, upgrade to 2-6) 2-6 pitchers (if the pitcher wins 20 games, upgrade to 2-7) 2-7 pitchers (if the pitcher has lost 20 games, downgrade to 2-6) 2-8 pitchers (if the pitcher has lost 10 games, downgrade to 2-7) SR Measurement: This measures the ability to finish a game and can be computed easily: Multiply the ERA by 1.75. The add walks and hits and divide by games played, then add the two sums together. RR Measurement: Usually can divide the SR by 2 to get a good rating. Wild Pitches, balks, passed balls: WP & Balks: If had 1-5 give one rating on card. If 6+, give two numbers. Passed balls: based on walks on card: 1-3 walk numbers=0 passed balls on card. 4-5=1 passed ball. 6+=2 passed balls. Hits, Strikeouts, Walks: Use tables below. Divide the category by innings, and see the table under the pitcher's PB rating.
