Strat-O-Matic Baseball 2020
Version 2020e update Patch is now available. All users should download and install Version 2020e immediately.
ITEMS FIXED IN VERSION 2020E PATCH
1) “Improve Baserunner Realism” Max Rule – The change that eliminated Automatic Baserunner Outs on Groundballs with runner on 3rd Base had a bug. In first and third situations when the runner on third was held the batter was out however the runner on first was not advancing to second base.
2) The Lineup dialog was allowing a double-duty player to both pitch and play the field if a certain sequence of steps was taken when invoking the dialog.
3) Play-by-Play – The original MLB Frank Thomas (who played from 1951 to 1966) was being referred to as “Big Hurt”. This has been corrected in the nickname file. In addition, various spelling errors were fixed.
4) Cloud Storage – The “Upload League to Cloud” function now displays a message indicating success after the upload has completed.
5) The computer manager was bringing in a double-duty play defined as a defensive sub even if he was already in the game as the pitcher.
