And Now, All AL Statistics Are Current!

Like I’d done with the National League a month ago, I’ve updated the stat pages for all fourteen American League teams so that they’re current (for the first time since 1989, I might add) through August 16, 1978. So now, stats for my entire SP78 season are completely caught up!

Okay, not quite: since I began work on this massive update, I’ve played all but one game for the August 17th slate, so now I have all of those new scoresheet numbers to plug into the stat pages. So realistically, though I don’t like to admit it, I’m now behind again…but just by a Statis Pro day!

Anyway, as before, these updated season stats can be found by clicking the ‘Statistics’ drop-down on the main page header, hovering the pointer over an AL division and team, then clicking on ‘Current Season Stats’. You’ll find that some stats and stat totals are blank; those will remain that way until the end of August. Right now, figuring out those numbers game-by-game is much more time-consuming than I’m willing to commit to.

So now I’ll begin typing statistics for the August 17th games into SP78 Stat Central (my HP Mini laptop), then I’ll begin the process of plugging them into the blog site as well. And then, I’ll play the final game of the 17th—a critical AL West match-up between the Royals and Twins—next week on Halloween, which will be the first SP78 game to be played on the scariest of holidays since 2011. And then…more work on the new league leaders spreadsheets, which I hope to have up and running by September 1st of the SP78 season. When I’ll find the time to do all of this, however, is flat-out beyond me…

  1. These are awesome. I admire your perseverance. I have started a 1943 replay in honor of my parents’ birth year, but only 10 games in. Time…so…hard…to…find…

    • I’ve had people visit the site who are replaying seasons from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, but so far you’re the only one to go that far back! That’s really cool…and not so many teams and players to deal with, either! And yes, only ten games, but don’t give up! Once you get past April, it’s smooth sailing!

      Thanks for the visit, Scott…come back every now and then and let me know how your season is progressing!

  2. Won’t the Halloween game be interrupted by those seeking mini Milky Way bars? Or will the night game be played with the lights out and no 70s music in the background?

    • I think it will be an evening game, played at sunset, so…some day and some night. I’ve never once had a trick-or-treater at my door here at this apartment complex, so I’m not worried about that, but in the past, in other locations, I’ve played games during All Hallows’ Eve with the curtains drawn, a minimum of lighting, and music listened to on headphones. But tonight…just a regularly-played game.
