The Effect of Batting Order - This essay was originally posted to the USENET group, recovered using DejaNews, and then reformatted for HTML. It's and attempt to answer the classic baseball question of how important batting order in scoring runs. To do this, I wrote a short BASIC program to simulate baseball games using some simple stats, and then let it play literally thousands of seasons with a team using one lineup playing against a team using another.
