Every Baseball Classics MLB player comes with full color “traffic-highlighting” performance results as well as their bunting, stealing, base running, and fielding ratings.

Batter and pitcher cards have a color-coded Result column listing the possible Hits, Outs, Walks, and Strikeouts possible based on their actual MLB statistics.

In one glance, Baseball Classics graphical ratings reveal player’s strengths & weaknesses.

The outcome of the dual between a batter and pitcher is typically revealed in 1 dice roll.

Result columns are based on the roll of 3 standard six-sided dice and 1 single binary die (0,1) to determine if the outcome of the at bat is to be referenced against the batter or pitcher card.


Fast, Easy, & Accurate Results

1. Roll the dice

2. If binary die is 0, reference pitcher card, otherwise batter card

3. Add up the 3 six-sided dice and refer to that Roll in the Result column
