Ô¯ Interim Birdie Baseball Commissioner K Here …
Here, briefly, is an explanation of how it is that a game of Birdie Baseball is played.

Each player is asked to submit a series of 15 numbers from 1 thru 12 at the beginning of the season. These are then recorded on the team’s batting line-up (a predetermined order based on how each coach submits the required form for the team) in the order in which you have given them to your Coach.

Next, there are 12 “probablilites” for plays: A Walk, 2-Singles, a Double, a Triple, a Home Run, 2-Strike Outs, 2-Fly Outs, and 2-Ground Outs. (These are the invention of the gracious lady who designed the method for playing Birdie Baseball, Norman’s mom; the 1st Birdie Baseball Umpire.) It is these 12 probabilities that are determined by the “roll of the dice”. For the most part, the Umpires use a computer generated random dice roller to obtain the values assigned to each probability. These values are determined newly for each game, ONLY ONCE for each game, AT THE BEGINNING of the game.

The batting lineup for any one game is limited to 10 players. Any reserves on a team play throughout the season as well by rotating the lineup beginning with the next player in the lineup after batter number 10 from the previous game. And this rotation continues throughout the season in the same manner with each Umpire using their own rotation How many games they have played for any given team is why you see different Umpires using different lineups at different times.

Beginning with batter number 1, the first number in his/her sequence is matched to the probability value of a play FOR THAT GAME and that determines the play he/she makes. The first number in the sequence for batter number 2 is then matched to its probability value, and so on and so on. The player’s sequence of numbers is not started over for each game, but continued from where it was left off from the previous game in which he/she played. (For instance, in a game recently played, the first number to come up for batter number 1 since she last played in a game was 11, and so her play was a Double according to the probability values “rolled” for Saturday’s game. Then next batter’s sequential number was 9, which was a Single according to the probability values.)
