Printing and Reading Statis-Pro Team Sheets (When Used Instead of Actual Player Cards)

One Statis-Pro game player converted the all-time great pitchers into this PDF that puts all 60 teams on one page. This is a great breakthrough, particularly for anyone who does not like to use google sheets. My suggestion is to use that PDF, and for now you would still need to use the process below to print out the batters for each team.

We had a great question from a user. The Statis-Pro All-Time Greats, which appear on a sheet rather than on cards, to print on one page for team.

Here is the process. Open this google sheet of the 60 great teams and scroll down to the team you want.

Use your curser to go from column C to Column AA and scroll from the header for that team (the 1927 Yankees in this case) to their last batter.  Note you do not need to include Columns A and B to see the New York Yankees 1927, because we have put that at the top of the list of names for each team.

Once they are defined go to print (control + p on most keyboards) it will start with the option of printing the whole document - which you don't want - so on the far right scroll to choose only printing the selection AND also choose further down to fit to page or just fit columns to page as shown below. That will show you on the screen it is set up to print what you want - just the New York Yankees 1927 batters.

When you hit print at the point, you should get just the batters in a pretty readable form:

When reading these sheets as opposed to the actual Statis-Pro cards, we list only the final number of each batters range, so if the action is on the batter's card then read from left to right knowing you are starting with 11. So on Babe Ruth's cards:

11-17 is a single, because you always start at 11 and the number listed under 1b for Ruth is 17.

18-24 is a double. The range always starts at the number after the last range (18 is right after 17) and under 2b you see "24" as the end of the range.

25 is a triple.

26-36 is a home run.

37-41 is a DEEP drive, which can be either a home run or a sac fly.

42-46 is a strikeout.

47-64 is a walk.

There is no hit by pitch. The number in the column is 64, but that is the number for the last number under walks, so the "range" is really 65-64, meaning there are really no hit by pitch results.

65-88 is an out.

The one issue on the sheets is they do not include the breakdown of which outfielder fielded the hit, which matters if a baserunner is trying to take an extra base or there is a chance of an error. We play that if the number ends in a 1 or 2 (11,12,21,22,31,32 etc.) then the batter pulled the ball (so right-handed batter hits ball to left field, switch-hitter to centerfield and left-handed to right). Then if it ends in 3 or 4 the ball was hit to left, 5 or 6 to center and 7 or 8 to right. The one exception is if the batter is an OBR A or B then I treat an 11 is a 1Bf.


To get the pitchers cards you go to the 2nd tab in the same sheet and follow the same process to print out just the team. Let's say you decided the 1927 Yankees opponent would be the 1995 Braves. The following is what you would print out for the Braves pitchers.

If Greg Maddux were facing Ruth, then the first roll or fast action card would keep the action on Maddux' card on 2-9, or go to Ruth's card on 10-12. When on Maddux card, the 11-88 random number would become:

11-16 is a single

No balks on the card - this is blank but in other cases there might have been a "16" which would mean no balks since that is also the end of the singles range.

17-44 is a strikeout.

45-50 is a walk. No really there is no 49 or 50, so the walk range is only 45-48, but the base 8 calculation in these formulas for a base 8 goes from 47 to 50 when counting,

No wild pitchers. a 50 is listed under WP, but because the top number for a walk is a 50, that leaves no wild pitches.

51-52 is a CD-C, which means the result is an OUT unless someone is on base - and in that case you must refer to the Clutch defensive chart for the catcher.

53-88 is an out. No number is listed, but the remainder of the numbers from CD-C through 88 is always an out.
