New Stadium Design

Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 1:19:00 PM


We've implemented a huge upgrade to all Stadium Expansions. Now, each and every Stadium Expansion reflects the true characteristics of the ballpark so that the focus of game play stays on the field and not in reference charts or books.

Each Stadium Expansion now contains:

  • Stadium Reference Data
  • Bullpens positioned relative to their actual location
  • Count Strip
  • Fence Heights and Distances

Stadium Reference Data



Stadium characteristics can definitely affect gameplay. While everyone knows that more Coors Field is a home run friendly park due to its altitude, there are other factors that every true manager should know and use to his advantage.

On each Stadium Expansion is a stadium reference data box in the upper left corner containing:

  • Stadium capacity (seating capacity)
  • Year built 
  • Original cost of construction, 
  • Advantage (hitter friendly, pitcher friendly, or neutral), 
  • Surface type (grass or artificial turf)
  • Orientation (what direction it faces)
  • Elevation
  • Roof type
  • QR code (for scanning): 
    • Gain instant access to advanced factors like weather conditions, wind direction, and other realistic events and conditions.

Count Strip

No longer a separate component, the Count Strip is now right there on the Stadium Expansion itself so that balls, strikes, and outs can be easily kept up with when the play is fast and there just isn't time to write it on the scoreboard - there'll be time for that afterwards!


Bullpens

The bullpens just aren't there for show. They're designed to actually hold the player standees representing any relief pitcher that the manager decides to get warmed up. In fact, if you're playing at that level, the rules require that you do indeed warm up a reliever in the bullpen - just as it's done in real life.

And not only that, they are positioned exactly where they're located in the real world ballpark.


Scoreboard

And just as the bullpens are positioned relative to their actual location, so is the indicator for where the scoreboard should go.

Of course, managers can position the scoreboard wherever they please, but if you want to place it where it actually is in the real park, you can.


Fence Heights and Distances

In order to preserve the highest level of accuracy and realism, the actual distances to the fences and the height of the wall at that point are printed in white lettering for easy reference.

A hit that might be a home run not only has be past where the fence is, but it has to get over the wall as well.


QR Code

Use your smartphone or any mobile device with a camera to scan the QR code on each Stadium Expansion. Right away, you'll have access to all of the stadium's advanced factors (like weather calculations and wind speed, for example) via our Online Tools page.



Now You're Ready

So there you have it - the new Stadium Expansions upgrades in all their aesthetic and statistical beauty.

And if you love baseball as much as we do, you'll be just as ready as we are.
