Sports Illustrated 1970 Baseball Tournament

Maybe I'll get this bad boy going again.  I'm playing one division at a time (each team plays all other teams once), and I'm currently in the American League East.  I'm not sure how I will proceed next.  I originally was going to have the top three in each division advance to a six team (per league) final with each team again playing all finalists in their league once.  I might just have the division winners play each other (a three game NLCS followed by a five game World Series).  Perhaps I'll let all teams play more games.  I have to gauge my interest after I finish the AL East.

Credit goes to pfunkone for getting me interested in That 70s Decade again.

Yes, but in computerized form. It's exactly the same game, but with graphics, stat compilation, etc. Like computer SOM.

The guy(s) who created the game did an outstanding job with the computerization, but his people unfortunately were a bit careless at times (though rarely, I think) with inputting the charts. For example, I noticed yesterday that Ray Fosse and his back-up Duke Sims had the same "card". Fosse's inadvertently was inputted for both players. But there's a chart editor and I have copies of the original charts, so I re-created Sims chart. Sports Illustrated made a few errors and questionable card decisions themselves, but the computer game plays just like the 1970 edition (warts and all).

There at least used to be an only slightly limited free version available for download (which is what I'm using).

Those old colored sheets were sure attractive. They kill my color ink on my printer but they are a wonderful presentation. Those and the Bowl Bound/Paydirt charts were/are really cool. I still love Bowl Bound and have several hundred charts from Eddie Mays, plus a few free online ones, and the original three sets. Good stuff.

Southpaw Les Cain got the start against what was perceived to be a Senators line-up that (apart from Frank Howard) couldn't hit its hat size against lefties.  Mike Epstein was thought to be particularly vulnerable.  As you can see, his 5 for 6 performance (including 3 RBIs) laid that theory to rest pretty easily.  In addition, Frank Howard was walked intentionally three times.  Should have been more.

The Senators are now even at 1-1.  The Tigers fall to 0-2.

Next up, the Red Sox (Gary Peters) take on the Yankees (Stan Bahnsen) at Yankee Stadium. Always a great match-up when these two meet. The Red Sox (2-0) try to hold on to their lead in the AL East, while the Yankees (1-1) try to get off the schneid against lefties.

A not-so-insignificant smattering of boos could be heard from what remained of the Yankee faithful as Johnny Ellis whiffed to end this one.  Gary Peters, though not quite as effective as Dave McNally, nevertheless allowed only one run on seven hits.  That's one run for the Yanks in their last two games against lefthanded pitching.

Yaz, Petrocelli and Scott collected two hits each, collectively driving in five of the Red Sox' seven runs.

Boston is looking pretty tough in the AL East at 3-0 with two games remaining in intra-division play.

Plenty of offense in this one, as both teams headed south in their respective pitching rotations for game three of intra-division play.  The Senators have scored 25 runs in their last two games.  First baseman Mike Epstein collected another pair of hits to add to the five he got against the Tigers yesterday.  Bernie Allen was 3 for 3 with 2 homeruns, 6 RBIs and 3 runs scored.

The Indians actually out-hit the Senators, though their pitchers gave up 10 walks.  (The Senators collected 15 free passes against the Tigers for an amazing total of 25 in two games.)  Duke Sims and Ray Fosse had 3 hits each for the Tribe.  Both homered (as did Graig Nettles and Ted Uhlaender).

If I remember correctly, hitters in the original SI baseball rarely created their own base on balls. So those are some wild chuckers on the Tribe!

Correct. Walks are primarily a function of the pitcher's card. Only players with a lot of walks have walk chances on their cards. Even then it's typically just a few chances out of 216.

I consider this a flaw in the game. (The game has several flaws, including how defense is handled, but the initial pitcher roll feature is, I think, superior to the SOM 1-2-3 and 4-5-6 split.) There should be more walks on the batter cards and fewer on the pitcher cards. The Senators got 25 walks in two games. In their first game, they got one.  And I don't think a single walk was on a batter card.

Randy Cox's cards addressed a lot of that, but also included an additional roll to resolve players who walk or strikeout rarely. The two rolls that are usually required to resolve an at bat in SIBB seemed to be a better model for face-to-face play than solitaire. That way both players are involved, which is one of the things I like about Paydirt/Bowl Bound, but solitaire can be a drag with all the rolls.

And I agree, the fielding is a little too abstract for my tastes. I usually just assign a field or position the ball is hit to ad hoc, based on the hitter, the pitcher, etc. It's all very "scientific." Haha.

My goal is to play the 1970 version "as is", which admittedly has some realism and statistical flaws. To accomplish this, I decided I needed to double check the computer game against reprints of the original charts. Unfortunately, I'm finding quite a few input errors (though, as I indicated, there is a chart editor to correct them).
