This is the most realistic, exciting board game ever invented! Me and my buddy started playing the '78 season in 1980 and that's where the "high voice" commentary started. We would call each game like we were Kurt Gowdy or Phil Rizzuto... "the PB is within Guidry's range, the pitch (random number), is a 28...Chet Lemon strikes out for number 11 for Guidry thru 5 innings!! The game plays out so real its amazing. I played each team through about 60 games before the game got stashed away while I was away at college. Then I resurrected it again for another 20-30 game per team. Both times I tossed the stats and started over (what was I thinking!?). I'm currently up to 60 games per team now. I developed my own rating for each player to determine if he makes the All-Star game. When my friend and I sit down periodically and ask each other if he name the lineup from any team in the late 70's early 80's, I always picture the statis-pro cards and inevitably pull out a name like Bill Nahorodny of the White Sox or Dan Ford of the Twins.
My first Statis Pro season was 1977. I played the entire season, the all-star game and post season It took me, off and on, 30 some years. When I finished the '77 Season, rather than play a new season I decided to make my own cards and league. Thus the Hyper League was born -16 teams with all the best players throughout history. Thus, Mantle, Dimaggio and Ruth play the Yankee outfield, Cy Young faces off against Bob Feller, etc. etc. Thus far I am 50 games into a 156-game schedule. The AL is led by the Cleveland Indians, with their amazing rotation of Feller, Paige, Hoyt and McDowell. In the NL, the Giants of New York, with their Un-hittable rotation of Matthewson, Hubbell, Marichal and Chesbro are setting the pace. I'll never get too old to enjoy this game.
This is the best game ever. And I still admit that I pull it out from time to time and play with my favorite season 1982. Yes I am 32 and still looking for anyone to play this game. I wish I still had all the old cards. Seem to have lost some of my seasons over the years.
