'Ole Pete Alexander gave up 5 HR's in only 6 IP? Wow! He gave up only 3 the entire season in 376 IP. And the Hitless Wonders White Sox of 1917 hit only 18 HR's all year as a team. How realistically are the stats incorporated into the SI Baseball game? Would the stats achieved be realistic throughout the course of a season, or is this simply an abnormal game which happens now and then?

I don't think those are official charts from the game (maybe the OP can clarify). I owned this game once, and it only had a bunch HOF level players, no actual teams.

I thought stats were pretty accurate, allowing for the fact that it is superstars vs. superstars.

I'm going to question whether this is a rules issue. There's a result off a pitcher's card that is (HR). This comes up a lot for Alexander (and it doesn't exist in the original game).

It means: roll off the batters card*, if it's an HR, then change to single. Otherwise, treat as whatever it says. Possibly this is being misinterpreted as a straight HR result.

*The way the game is played, you roll off the pitcher first and either get a result or blank. Blank means roll off the hitter's card.

Not trying to criticize the OP, as the session report was interesting nonetheless.

If it's anything like the SI football games, there's a chance of an overriding defense result, which means that somebody who never hit a home run could hit one off the defensive result.

I played more than 2 complete seasons of this game. I found that the power numbers(HR, RBI) were very accurate. I believe Ted Williams led the league with 44 home runs. I found that batting averages were too low, but maybe it makes sense when you consider that every pitcher in the game is an all-star. Ted Williams hit only .278 which was among the league leaders. Conversely, Luis Aparicio barely hit above the Mendoza line.

Pitching stats were about what I thought they should be, except for strikeouts which were quite low.
