well.. back to a more normal HR derby type contest

this time.. you will play my scrub team..

three ways to win:

1. Most Homeruns in a single Game
2. Most Homeruns in 2 games combined (you can only play 3, take your top 2)
3. Most homeruns in the 1st inning of a single game


you can play up to 3 games.. post your best scores for HRs in a single game and homeruns in the first inning

for the combined total.. just take the total number of homeruns from your top 2 (out of 3) games.

Why don't we just play for 2nd place since DarkElf is going to win this one.

Have you played his team? Most HRs in the 1st inning isn't that wide open.

yea.. I played his team the other day in the 'least homeruns' contest.. I only gave up 2 total :D
and I use basically the same strategy with this pitcher.. just keep him around 100-102 mph..

so.. who knows.. he could have a bad game,, or two ;)

btw.. pharoh.. I see you started a game after the time began, but before i posted this contest

so its up to you, if you want that one counted

twikoff
08-21-02, 02:21 PM
everyone too intimidated by darkelf to get in? ;)

hmmmm... not many homeruns hit so far.. maybe next time, I should have a slow pitcher in? although that would probably make their honor rating go down :hscratch:

Game #1 - 47774 - 0 HRs
Game #2 - 48237 - 2 HRs, 1 in 1st
Game #3 - 48458 - 0 Hrs

Edit:
Put your crappy pitcher in for these HR contests so some of us can enjoy hitting some HRs. :)

twikoff
08-21-02, 02:54 PM
oh yea.. i didnt mention.. tie breakers will be....

total runs scored in the game for the single game total
longest HR for the most in the first inning
and total runs scored in 2 combine games, for combined HR total

twikoff
08-21-02, 03:13 PM
btw.. the scrubs are still 7*

i know losing shouldnt have anything at all to do with honor rating..
but this team had been a solid 7* team for awhile, before I started having these contests.. then they got pounded a ton and took a whole lot of losses and went back and forth from 6/7..
so I took the scrub teams and tossed a stack of wins at them to make the % a little better.. and they seem to be staying at 7* better now..

maybe its just a coincidence.. not sure.

dont hit them at all.. or dont hit them often?
because this is a pretty weak 7* team.. easier to hit off of, then many

next HR derby.. Ill put a 30mph pitcher in
that will help in 2 ways
1. easier to hit off of
2. darkelf wont play, cause it will drop their honor rating ;)

I'm not playing because it'll skew my stats. Yes only one game but still. I'm taking the Fred stance on playing only teams that are at my level (8* or above).

Guys, I haven't trained in power since last Friday, so my home runs are tapering off a little. I've moved my experimentation now to defense...

08-22-02, 08:26 AM
since few people are posting their scores, and Im too lazy to look them up.. the aggies are still in the lead with 2 ;)

Game 1 stats:
#51566

3,1,3

Actually, Eric had an inside the park homer, so technically that would count since you didn't specify over the fence.

if it doesnt leave the park.. it doesnt count as a homerun in smallball, so it doesnt count as one in the mini games -ptth-

Hey, I kinda won 2 categories too. And I will claim an overall victory untill someone checks for tiebreakers (which I will surely lose) because I too, am lazy.! -ptth-

total runs scored in the game for the single game total

me : game #51767 11 Runs scored (3 HR's)
woody: game #51556 10 Runs scored (3 HR's)

longest HR for the most in the first inning

me: I had none.

and total runs scored in 2 combine games, for combined HR total

me: games #51767 and #47812 21 runs scored
woody: games #51556 and #51919 17 runs scored

I dont understand what the hell "for combined HR total" means in relation to "total runs scored in 2 combine(d) games," so that's that. :p

Okay, so I have some time on my hands. Actually, it wasnt too difficult or time consuming. :p
