__FORMULA #17:__

PITCHER'S DOUBLE

psomD=((D*216)ITBF).90

pitcher's som DOUBLE equals ((doubles yielded times
216 ) divided by Total Batters Faced) minus 90

__FORMULA #18: PITCHER'S TRIPLE__

psomT=((T*216)ITBF)~15

pitcher's som TRIPLE equals ((triples yielded times
216) divided by Total Batters Faced ) minus 15

__FORMULA #19:__

PITCHER'S HOMERUN

psomHR = (( HR* 216)ITBF) - 50

pitcher's som HOMERUN equals ((homeruns yielded
times 216) divided by Total Batters Faced ) minus 50

How it works: These formulas take the extra base
hit and multiply it by the 216 chances appearing on both cards. Then the figure
is divided by the pitcher's Total Batters Faced. The result is then subtracted
by the amount of double, triple, or homerun subchances appearing on the average
batter's

card. The 90, 15, and 50 in these formulas are the
defaults to be used in the absence of more precise league-wide data.

For advanced-side ratings, remember to run the
formulas 4 ways - leftyAL, rightyAL, leftyNL, and rightyNL. For pre-1990 cards,
or if double and triple data is not available (get US Today's Baseball Weekly),
use these older formulas for deter-mining psomD and psomT:

__old FORMULA #17:__

PITCHER'S DOUBLE

psomD = psomHR * 1.8

pitcher's som Double equals pitcher's som HomeRun
times 1.8

__old FORMULA #18:__

PITCHER'S TRIPLE

psomT = psomHR * .4

pitcher's som Triple equals pitcher's som HomeRun
times OA

How it works: These formulas were 95 percent accurate for the pitcher's elementary cards until 1990. It's still essential to have the pitcher's HR and TBF.
