Played a 14 inning game between the Phillies and the Reds today. That's first time I've had to go to a second sheet (I use the Strat Form B, which only goes to 12), so it becomes the longest game played in the short history of the CTB.

It got me to wondering, most of you have rolled many more games than I have. What is the longest game you've ever rolled?

Nac, that's an amazing three games in one and more scenario.  Felt bad for some of those batters who had an 0'fer.

 


 I've been following the guidelines for pitching use set out in the rule book, but I'm beginning to think this wouldn't apply as much to how pitchers were used in 1911.  They often started one game and relieved the next (and not just game #7 in the World Series like Bumgarner this year).  I steal, hit & run, and bunt all the time in my 1911 replay, but I'm just now adjusting to using my pitchers more often.   I'm using there historical usage as a guideline - some pitched all the time, some didn't.  I should have it down better for the 2nd half of my NL season and then my 1911 AL season.

I pay little attention to the rule book on pitcher rest as it is designed for the modern era.

Same here.

Normally, if I have any questions, I check the baseref game logs for the pitcher in question.

That's tough for '11, though, since they don't have the individual game logs.

For instance, a guy like Lefty Grove goes totally against SOM's guidelines (as I have pointed out elsewhere).  I'm sure others do, as well.

One trick I have discovered through research is that of having a game two starter ready to go, if need be, to finish the first game of a twinbill.  A number of Major League pitchers did it.

Since the break between games was so short, it was presumably easier to stay warmed and ready to head right back out there.  At the very least, it was no different than having to sit through a long inning.

That way, you might only have to worry about using the pen for one game, rather than two.

Oh, so close. Rube Marquard came within one out of the first no-hitter in CTB history. Marquard pitching against the Cubs mowed down the Westside (the Cubs wouldn't move to the Northside until 1916) batters through 8 2/3 innings with no hits allowed and 8 Ks. With 2 outs in the 9th, Wildfire Schulte, hit a ball to centerfield that a diving Fred Snodgrass just couldn't get to. I had rolled a 6-10 (FLY (cf) X), the defensive roll was a 10 (no error), but the 20d was a 4 and Snodgrass is a 3/e9 = SI2. Marquard did complete the game for a 2-hit (Archer followed Schulte with a clean single) shutout.

 

I haven't gone past the 6th inning with a no-hitter in any other game, of course this is my first replay season and I've only rolled 150-something games, so I can't complain.

I had one earlier in my replay that went into the ninth.

And I just lost one the other day in the seventh inning...on a ballpark home run shot.

Unfortunately, the ballpark in question was 1-16 for righthanded hitters. bleh

The hitter had "W" power, so it went as a long single.

The next batter got a clean single, so no wringing of hands over one roll gone astray....

One good thing about being snowed in due to the East Coast Blizzard is that I got to roll several games of Strat.

We had 64 degrees on Monday.  In fact, we had a weird string of record highs recently.

Joe Tinker hits for the cycle. For the day Tinker was 5-6 = Single, HR, single, triple, fielder's choice, double. 3 runs, 3 RBIs.
This is the first official CTB batter to ht for the cycle. I had Tris Speaker hit for the cycle, but not during my 1911 replay.
