FORMIT 17:

   Pitchers' Hitting Cards are not in order of lowest to highest, and concideration to ABs to league history takes a very high priority. With these things concidered, use the following rules of thumb to determine which card pattern the pitcher will use:

CARD #1: NO HR, .000 to .130 BA

CARD #2: NO HR, .131 to .175 BA

CARD #3: NO HR, .176 to .224 BA

CARD #4: NO HR, .225 to .274 BA

CARD #5: NO HR, .275 or greater BA

CARD #6: 1+ HR, .000 to .199 BA

CARD #7: 1+ HR, .200 to .274 BA

CARD #8: 1+ HR, .275 or greater BA

 

If less than 8 ABs, lower 1 card level.

 

   These steps will give you >90% on making your Pitchers' Hitting Cards.  For those of you who do not have these cards, but wish to have close facimiles, use these card formulas:

 

        h        w        d        t        hr       k        gbA

#1             0        3        0        0        0       60     34

#2           6.2        3        0        0        0       55     34

#3          12.6        3       20        0        0       50     31

#4            21        3       43        0        0       44     32

#5         32.55        4       60        0        0       37     28

#6           6.8        4        0        0       52       55     32

#7          18.6        4       38        0       52       47     31

#8            29        4       68        0       52       39     28

 

   Of course, these are the formulated versions of the Pitchers' Hitting Cards.  By now, you should be able to tranfer this data into actual cards, whatever pattern you may choose to use.
