Here is another quick video on storing the players cards for quick play. The video shows how to place relievers who must rest behind starting pitchers until he is available to pitch again. Everyone can choose how to determine how long pitchers can stay in a game before they are tired, can pitch again, but here is how we keep track.
How long can a pitcher pitch in a game?
Statis-Pro uses an SR rating for the starting pitcher's endurance, and an RR rating for a reliever's endurance. That number is reduced if any of the following happen:
- The pitcher allows a runner to each base unless it is due to an error.
- The pitcher allows a run to score, unless that runner is on based due to an error.
- An inning ends.
For example, if a pitcher had an SR of 12 and he allowed a single it would drop to 11. If he walked the next batter it would drop to 10. If the next player hit a 3-run homer it would drop four more to 6 (one of another runner reaching and three more for 3 scoring). If he then retired the next three batters to end the inning, it would drop to 5 because the inning ended.
Once the SR or RR drops to 0 he would normally leave the game though he can stay in the game and his PB drops by 1 when he hits 0, and drops an extra 1 for every extra reduction based on any of the above. For example, a pitcher with the best PB:2-9 who ran out of SR or RR would drop to a PB2-8, then PB2-7, PB4-7, PB2-6, PB2-5, PB2-4, PB2-3, PB2-2 and if he dropped one more he would not have a PB. A pitcher completely out of a PB performs the same as a position player brought into pitch, the PB rating is skipped and the Random Number or Dice Roll of 11-88 is read immediately off the batter's card.
However, even if a pitcher still has SR or RR endurance, his PB can be reduced if he exceeds the following number of innings or batters:
|Type of Pitcher||Max IP||or Batters Faced||Rest Games|
|Starting Pitcher||Ave IP + 1||Ave IP x 4||3|
|Long Relief (ave. 2.1+ IP)||2||8||1|
