Hi Greg- I have played a few games with the FACs as reported elsewhere in this forum. I have one issue. With bases loaded, in most cases the FACs do not allow a runner to advance from 3rd to home on a fly ball or only for an F runner with a Wd1. This should be corrected as, of course, deep fly balls typically allow at least F & A runners to score without a throw. You made this adjustment for bases loaded Out results 7-9 on the game charts but this was not carried over to the FACs. Help! Ira
I would put a dot on a number of them. Let me take a look tomorrow.
Thanks, Greg. I appreciate your always prompt response! Ira
The best I can suggest is to use the Runner on 2nd & 3rd chart with the bases full for fly outs only, 7,8,9 and 17,18,19.
The runner on 1st always holds unless there's a throw to the plate with a runner running with risk.
I would actually stroke out the Bases Full on a Flyout to LF, CF, and RF. That's really too bad. I will have to come up with some kind of compensation once I get it all figured out.
I thought there may be a maturation process to the FAC deck. I'm glad you are thinking about it. If anyone can figure it out and make it simpler yet better it's you! :)
BTW...how is it intended to handle the 51,52 results on the FAC if an OUT is recorded (51&52). Reference the actual chart to get the OUT result?
Reference the chart. I think I might try to put a reference in to eliminate this chart reference.
Whatever you decide to do will be fair. For now, your suggestion to disregard the bases loaded results on outfield fly outs and use the results for 2nd & 3rd makes good sense. Thanks. Ira
I have been thinking about the FAC card theory. Right now they emulate the boards, but the number of FACs there are to work with means a lot more could be done. While there is only one board result, there are 9 FACs for each board result. D20-17 on the board has one result, a Fly out to LF, with the runners doing something specific to that board. However, with 9 FACs handling the same D20, rather than all saying the same thing it could go something like this:
Flyout LF - Bases Loaded
FAC1 - runner on 3rd scores, others hold
FAC2 - runner on 3rd scores, F! runner on 2nd to 3rd
FAC3 - runner on 3rd scores, F runner on 2nd to 3rd
FAC4 - S runner holds
FAC5 - S arm holds
FAC6 - F runner scores, F runner on 2nd to 3rd
FAC7 - W arm allows runner on 2nd & 3rd to advance
FAC8 - all hold
FAC9 - all hold
I think that’s the beauty of a FAC deck. It gives opportunity for addd detail without having to wade through a chart book or find the appropriate base situation.
