First off, played my first two (solo) games tonight and I'm impressed. Really neat game and I bet it's even better played with two. I like the way the mechanics evoke a game narrative.

Regarding relief pitchers in the solo game, when a pitcher runs out of cards in the pitch deck, you finish out the at bat, with the pitcher automatically selecting the opposite of the ace pitch for every pitch. I take it this means the batter is getting his red and white abilities on every swing? If so, it's a nice way to model a pitcher who's out of gas.

Thanks for your time...

Yes, when a pitcher runs out of pitch cards the batter gets both the red and white abilities.

I agree with you...great game both 2-player and solo!

Yes, an empty deck means the batter is right every time. Also not where the pitch is thrown for batters with location abilities, like Kapowski and Pinchback.

Before the next batter, you'd select a new pitcher according the the scenario rules, shuffle the pitcher deck, and fatigue 3 before the 1st pitch. (Missing from 1st edition rules)
