Gary's Strat-O-Matic Baseball Download Page - Gary Altman.
NEW SOMWORLD - Will Kolodzie.
Rock-N-Roll Baseball - Bruce Bundy has been providing excellent information to the Strat-O-Matic community for a number of years. He recently began building his own web site. The site includes copies of his "Let's Formulate It" articles which originally appeared in Strat Fan. The articles contain formulas that he's developed to predict individual player cards for SOM Baseball.
StratWeb - Was THE place to find information about Strat-O-Matic baseball. Unfortunately it's now a ghost site.
Strat-O-Matic Game Company - Makers of Strat-O-Matic Baseball the best selling baseball board game for almost 40 years. Its computer baseball game rivals its competitors for best game on the market.
SOM Fielding Chart - Some of BTF's own research, Strat's fielding ratings expressed in hits and total bases. These numbers correspond to the numbers you would find in Lamanna's Baseball Bulletin's or Strat Fan's card rating books.
Strat-O-Matic Rule Book Project - The Strat-O-Matic Baseball Mailing List's began creating a comprehensive rule book for Strat-O-Matic Baseball. Shortly thereafter, SOM announced a new rule book for 1998. Currently this page is in stasis until the book is released. Check out what's been done so far. Feel free to add your own ideas.
Strat Research Associates - Nice Strat based page by Vince Velten. You can find some excellent articles, but you better put your thinking cap on. The articles are well thought out but sometimes deal with advanced methods. But if you take the time to follow along with Vince, your understanding of Strat-O-Matic will grow by leaps and bounds. Check out his Lineup program for help choosing the best players to trash an opponent.

Dynasty League Baseball - Mike Cieslinski, the designer of Pursue the Pennant Baseball, created what is probably the most intricate and realistic tabletop baseball game. Everything that can happen in real life baseball happens in Dynasty League including ejections, umpires squeezing the strike zone and home runs falling onto Waveland Ave. in Chicago. Unfortunately realism comes at a price -- the game plays at between 45-60 minutes. The lack of a computer manager in the computer version restricts its usefulness. When this limitation is addressed, this game could be a big winner.
Diamond Dreams - another computer baseball game company. I don't really know too much about it. Some of the articles on the site are encouraging. Hopefully, I'll download the demo and have more to report soon.
Fantasy Baseball Central - The most comprehensive fantasy baseball page around. You'll find links to many worthwhile sites. Just find something else to do while the page loads, it sometimes take a while for the 117K page to appear.
The IBL Game- some diehard Pursue the Pennant players have revised and updated a great table-top game.
Lance Haffner Computer Sports Games
THE MASTERS OF BASEBALL DAILY - Fantasy baseball columns and information.
RotoNews Fantasy Sports - Another site dedicated to the fantasy sport player. I don't check this site too often, but when I do I usually find something new.
