Sample of Play: #Sacrifice (#RallyBird #Baseball #BoardGame)

 

This is the 2nd “sample of play” video in the series that pits Schiller against me. Schiller again uses controversial tactics. It joins us at the top of the 9th. All die rolls are real, one shot events determined by chance or fate. I like to think the RallyBird Baseball Board Game has an extra value of allowing you to test out these controversial tactics for yourself. In the case of the Sacrifice tactic in baseball, its official history shows an evolving evolution–how it impacts the batter’s statistic batting average or not. A Sacrifice Fly, earning a run, is defined differently than a general Sacrifice, which merely advances a runner–at the cost of a nearly certain Out. When is it worth it to you to use this tactic? I think it’s fun to wrestle with the decision point.

Preparations for the Next RallyBird Baseball Video. Topic: “Sacrifice” At Bats

With the assistance of graphs (see pic) I’m gathering my thoughts for my next RallyBird Baseball video to add to my previous five available on YouTube here.

While I can offer no computer graphics, I do offer my fuzzy, halting, semi-articulate, grainy human self. At least there are no PowerPoint slides, right?

Note to human self: turn on the microphone.
