Team Stats

There are two sets of team stats: offense and defense. Offensive stats are the ones when your team is at bat; defensive stats are when your team is on the field. The only exception is errors. The errors listed in the offensive stats are those made by your players; those listed in the defensive stats are those made by the opponent's.

Team stats are AB, H, R, 2B, 3B, HR, BB, SO, SB, SBA, E, DP, ERA, and OBP. All but DP and ERA are identical to the definitions above. DP is the number of double plays (on offense is the number your players hit into). ERA is not earned runs, but total runs per nine innings of baseball.

DEL Cup leagues have additional categories at the beginning of the line: number of tournaments played, number of championships won, series won and lost, and games won and lost.


Analysis Notes

The analysis page breaks down a team's batting average, RBI rate, home run rate, defensive average, and steal average by position. For pitchers, the stats listed are on base average allowed, home run rate, strikeout rate, walk rate, and earned runs per 9 innings. All stats are also compared with the league as a whole, with a scale from 0 to 10 given.


Coaching

Once training camps are completed, your job will switch from being a team's general manager (getting players) to being the coach (preparing for games). This section covers your options for pre-game preparations.
Game Training
Before each game, you get the option to train your team. The training options are pitching, defense, and batting. You may use up to 3 total points for pitchers and for batters (defense counts against both totals), but do not need to use them all. In fact, the more you train, the more fatigued your team will start the game. Training selections are made from the preferences menu of the coaching screen.
Defensive Assignments
After deciding on your active rosters and BEFORE setting your batting order, you will want to decide who will play at each position. For all positions except DH and pitcher, you will have a starter and two backups. (Only one backup for catcher of course.) The backups will see play periodically as the fatigue of a long season sets in for players with lower durability ratings. When deciding on players, remember that a position player (1B for example) will play his own position best, and a different position poorly, while a utility players (IF and OF) will play all positions equally, but will not play as well as a first baseman playing first base.

One thing that this method allows is platoons. (And I'm not talking about groups of 30-40 soldiers...) Batters other than switch hitters tend to fair substantially better against pitchers of the opposite hand, and therefore you may wish to have two second basemen, one of whom is a lefty and plays against right-handed starters, and the other vice versa.


Batting Order
This is the order in which your players bat during the game. The players you see when choosing the batting order are the starters at each defensive position, and either the next starter or the first pinch hitter that isn't a defensive starter. Thus, the actual players used in the game may be different.

In all American league games, and all World Series or interleague games where the AL has home field advantage, at designated hitter (DH) is used instead of the pitcher. This player is chosen at game time, and is the player nearest the top of the appropriate pinch hit list who is not playing on the field.

In setting batting orders before games with a DH, the player shown as the DH is the highest pinch hitter who is not a starter at a defensive position.


Pitching
There are five sets of pitchers: starters, long relief, setup, closers, and spot starters. The starters are used in a rotation, so they will all play about equal amounts of time. The other lineups will pick the most rested pitcher, with the first listed being more likely than the second. Long relievers are used for mop-up duty as well. Spot starters are only used if the normally-scheduled starter is injured.

Each lineup must have between one and five pitchers. A five pitcher starting rotation is recommended in pro baseball and four in college, a full (five-man) set of long relievers is recommended, while the other duties should have about two each. It is possible to use the same pitcher in two different lineups.


Preferences
Manager allows you to set the following options: A "1" means you are the least likely to do something, and a "5" means you are most likely. Setting these options is useless if you will be managing your team on the field manually, since you would choose these yourself.
Pinch Hitters
You should set the priority of your active players for pinch hitting. The program will choose a pinch hitter based on how close to the top of the list the player is and what position he is. (You would rather use a pinch hitter who can take over defensively as well.) Note that if the DH rule is being used, your top non-starting pinch hitter will be used as the DH.
Position Changes
This is basically a way of shuffling around your players to get the best in each position. You can move a player from any infield position (not catcher) to any other, or from any outfield position to any other. It is best to make all position changes before training camps if possible, as the changes are free. After training camps, a player whose position is changed is defensively impaired for a few weeks, until he learns the new position.

Game Control

If you selected play-by-play control, you get to act as the manager on the field as well. Before each at-bat, the following actions can happen:
