At the top of the screen you will see several drop-down
list boxes, the top two labeled "Team" and "MLB Park" show the team in your
league being displayed on the field displayed below the list boxes. In
Strat-O-Matic Baseball each field is rated on difficulty for lefties and
righties to get singles and home runs so it's important to rate your team on
the correct ballpark. When you change the Team, the Ballpark also
changes to the ballpark you associated with the team in the "Teams" menu
drop-down list boxes labeled "Batting" and "Fielding" control the rating
system for the session in Strat Planner. Batting has choices of OPS
(On base Plus Slugging), RP/G (Runs Produced per Game) and RC/G (Runs
Created per Game). Fielding has choices of On or Off. If
fielding is On, each player's rating is reduced by the expected errors and
inability to reach some balls hit in his direction. Ever hear an
announcer say, "since a double play can't be assumed, no error is charged"
or "only one run is unearned"? Same in these ratings, double plays are
not part of the fielding calculation.

singles and home runs. Strat Planner keeps track of these ratings for
you. Simply choose the MLB Park and the rating pops up automatically.
If you change one of the ratings the system recalculates the ratings on each
player based on the new rating. Changing ratings can be a good
strategy if you're trying to rate your team over the season. Do this
by calculating the average BP ratings based on which ballparks you visit and
the number of games played in each park.
