Quick Statis-Pro Cards for any Missing or New Players You Want to Add to your Game

We have developed the new 2022 baseball cards to play the free Statis-Pro baseball game (or click for advanced rules), and this year fit them into vertical layouts after we had to use a horizontal layout last year that was more clumsy. 

All 2022 Projected Batters (49 pages, 9 cards to a page) and All 2022 Projected Pitchers (62 pages, 9 cards to a page) is the only other thing needed to play the game, though more detailed instructions appear in this Statis-Pro baseball Game Rules.

You can calculate your own cards using this link and go to the create batter and pitcher cards, and write them in on the blank cards at the bottom, or you can just pick the closest OPS from the extra cards below that say ".775 OPS," ".675 OPS) etc.

The following are updated instructions to start to play games.

 The flow of the game with new simple Fast Action Cards on this pdf. We suggest you print all 20 pages TWICE and cut and mix them all so you will have plenty of cards to play at least one game without reshuffling.

1. Read top line of first card for 2-12 number to see if action is on the pitcher or batter card.

2. On the 2nd card, read the second number (Random Number 11-88) to see what happens on that card. If noone is one base, change any BK, WP or CD on line 2 to an OUT. On a K, W, HBP or 1B on the pitchers card the result is settled and move back to #1 for the next batter.

3. You only use the 3rd number f the result is an OUT, to see where the ball is hit, and if there is a hit on the batter's card just to see if there is a chance of an error (E?). On an out one of these can happen:

G - DP - means a double play if a man on 1st base, with any runner on 2nd or 3rd advancing OR the defense chooses to hold all unforced runners and just throw the runner out at first.

Gx - lead runner who is forced out, and unforced runners hold.

Ga - batter out at first but runners advance.

E? - check 4th number on next card for an error, and if no error batter is out and runners advance. (if this occurs after a single on the batters card, then check that fielder for an error).

4. The Error Reading on the 4th card is only used if there is a possible error (e?) on line 3 after an out or hit on a batter's card. If the fielder's E number is in the range on this 4th line then everyone is safe in an out or gets an extra base on a hit. Flip for another 11-88 and if the number is 61-88 give batter and runners one additional base for a throwing error.

BD or CD exception instead of 2-12 on top line. Ignore these if noone on base. If at least one runner is on base, BD means to use the clutch batting at the bottom of the batter card  use tto determine if it is a base clearing double (BD-2B), home run, or just a foul ball. If you get a CD with a position, then look up the fielders CD (clutch defense) 1-5 and use the chart at the bottom of this blog for result.

We will print one blog with the cards for each of the 30 teams on so you just need to print cards for teams as you need them.

If you would rather use our team sheets than cards you need to cut 9 to a page  click here to open the google sheet of all teams, then scroll down to the team (TBR in column B for Tampa Bay Rays). Use your curser to define only the players, and you do NOT need to define Column S - that is just to keep the players in order.

Hit print, and make sure your settings are on LANDSCAPE to give room for all the columns, and then set to about 80% - until all columns through "R" vs. LHP/RHP are on one page. Then print.

Once printed, I like to cut off the white space on the bottom to make it easier to fit it more easily above the Fast Action Cards or space to roll the dice.

You are ready to play! In this case, we are letting Corey Kluber play against his old team the Cleveland Indians.

Finding Player Not on Roster

Batters such as Fernando Tatis Jr.

If you do not see a player listed with the team of active players, you can add their card. For example, Fernando Tatis Jr. is not on the main Padres roster because he is on the 60-day disabled list. Click on this list of all batters, and scroll down alphabetically and you will see Tatis card, perhaps the best hitting card in baseball with a home run range of 24-34 and A/A speed. Note that if you are looking for a player NOT on this list either, you can still make up a card simply by taking his projected OPS and matching it to the closest OPS listed in the frozen top rows.

Pitchers Such as Chris Sale

Likewise Chris Sale is on 60-day DL so is not listed with the Red Sox active roster on the main blog, but you can click on the list of all pitchers and scroll down to find him. As you can see Sale is one of the most dominant pitchers in the game - a rare top rating (PB 2-9) for a starter who can give up to 6 innings if his SR13 holds up, and has a better strike out range (24-50) and walk range (51-56) then even the average PB 4-7. Since a PB 2-9 controls the action 83% of the time, this could be the best pitchers card in the game this year. If a pitcher is not listed, just pick the closes ERA or FIP projetion andmatch the card based on column A.

Using these google sheets, you can use any player that comes up to the majors, as long as you have an OPS or ERA/FIPs.

You can also create actual cards for any player using their stats on this form.
