2019 Action! PC Baseball Enhancements

Game play

New base coach and defensive decision opportunities. This includes new options to advance on wild pitches and passed balls, and more opportunities to stretch extra base hits.

New Replay Review Option. Our baseball replay challenge system is like the system in our football game. Managers are offered the option to review questionable plays and are presented the percentage chance of a reversal. Close plays at first, tag plays, boundary plays, and more are all part of this new system. League rules may be set for the number of challenges allowed, booth reviews, crew chief reviews, and more.

Bullpen and pinch hitter screens include a more attractive look and more stats to help make better informed substitution decisions.

Player and chalkboard labels are more customizable. Choose size, shape, and rating information.

Expanded game screen functionality. Right-click an element of the game screen to view and change its display preferences. For example, right-click  the roster to toggle between real, replay, and games stats. Right-click the player icons to change which stats and ratings are displayed on them.

Game Tools

New Player Spreadsheet Import tool! If you enjoy creating your own player files this is the tool for you! Choose from over 140 different ratings and stats to import ranging from basic batting, pitching, and fielding stats to ratings, salaries, height, weight, and more. This easy to use tool even includes an option to create a custom blank spreadsheet. It has never been easier to create minor leagues, college teams, or your own fantasy teams.

New manager settings are available to customize your preferred roster composition when a team is managed by the computer. You can set you choice for number of catchers, infielders, outfielders, pitchers, and starting pitchers. Exported manager files now include the date the manager file was created.

New Import Photo Assignments tool makes it easy to assign player photos from previous league folders to your new league with just a few clicks!

The Player form has a new player notes section which is automatically pre-set with HOF, MVP, ROY, and CY awards in all your past seasons!


Reports

Expanded encyclopedia functionality! The list of seasons in each encyclopedia now includes the number of teams and players in each encyclopedia. We’ve also added new search filters for scanning your data. Our favorite new game feature is the season record book included with the encyclopedia! Custom batting, pitching, and fielding records may be created for entire leagues or specific teams and filtered using all available search options. For example, you can create a record book with all Milwaukee shortstops from 1970 to 1976 who hit at least 10 home runs with a .250 average!

New Fielding Stats

The fielding stats display on the Player form has been redesigned and includes more stats. Innings by position, home runs robbed, and runs saved have all been added! Runs saved, poor plays, and home runs robbed are also listed on the leaderboards.


More!

Real salary data is included in the 2018 player file! New league rule option to display the Dave Koch Sports’ player value or a player’s real and editable salary.

Expanded playoff formats allow reseeding and up to 4 brackets of 16 teams each! 64 team baseball tournaments are here!

Player and Roster forms are now more functional and attractive! The new depth chart and starting rotation displays include photos of the top players. We’ve also simplified lineup and depth chart management by adding an option to display only one position at a time. Before or during a game, you can click the opposing pitcher’s name to view his complete stats and ratings.

New option to assign and display a league logo on the opening game screen.

New option to save or print player history directly from the Player form.

ABOUT THE GAME

WHAT IS ACTION! PC BASEBALL?

Action! PC Baseball is the most comprehensive stat-based baseball game on the market.

Action! PC Baseball is designed to challenge your mind and not your fingers. Play results are determined by lineups, play calls and strategy rather than joystick skill and dice rolls. You’re the coach with hundreds of strategy options available! In Action! PC Baseball, players are rated using every available published statistic as well as expert subjective analysis! Each player performs as he did in real life with amazing statistical accuracy.  Action! PC Baseball also includes extensive player, team, and league statistical reports!

Play games head-to-head, over the internet, or against the computer. Relive past seasons as the manager of your favorite team; draft teams and play games in a league; let the computer manage all of the teams and watch the results; or set your managerial preferences for a specific team and let the computer play a season with your manager profile. Any way you play, you’ll love the statistical accuracy and strategy Action! PC Baseball brings to your home computer.

Game Play

At Dave Koch Sports, we use every available published stat and expertly formulated subjective ratings, to make Action! PC Baseball the most realistic and exciting baseball game you can play!

Playing Action! PC Baseball is fun and easy! All of the tools that you need to set game preferences, play exhibition or league games, and create reports are conveniently organized in our user-friendly game interface. Once game play begins, you can make strategic game-changing decisions with the click of a mouse. Make basic decisions like changing pitchers or using a pinch hitter, to more in-depth moves such as maneuvering your infield and outfield depth, pitching around batters, and warming up pitchers in the bullpen. Determine whether your players will hit, bunt, hit and run, or steal. The Action! PC base coach displays the percentage chance of successfully sending a runner to the next base as well as the arm strength of the player who will be throwing the ball! Substitute a late inning defensive replacement, or use that situational lefty to get a tough out in the 8th inning. All of the strategic decisions are in your hands!

Action! PC Baseball allows you to customize your game screen with a variety of display options. It features every big league park and the ability to import your own! The optional video chalkboard option allows you to view ball flight, throws, base runner and fielder movements. Rich and varied play-by-play, including hundreds of rare plays, will pull you into the action. Play-by-Play refers to many game and season statistics such as hitting with runners in scoring position, monthly batting, hitting streaks, and in-game summaries.  Color commentary includes ballpark specific references, player nicknames, and even home run distances!  In fact, there are over 10,000 play-by-play descriptions for a simple ground out to shortstop!  Optional pitch-by-pitch mode with realistic adjustments to balls, strikes, balls put in play, batting average and other results. All adjustments are based on batter, pitcher and ball-strike count. Pitch-by-pitch mode can be utilized based on inning and base runner situation and can be changed from batter to batter.

The Game Preferences form allows you to display a number of player features, including player game and season stats to date, fielder range, throwing arm and fielding percentage, and base runner rating and steal percentage. Features such as video chalkboard, pitcher fatigue, pitch speed, bullpen warm-up, projected outcome box, and out-of-town scoreboard are just a click away.

The Roster form allows you to fill out your team's lineup for the day. You can use a team’s daily lineup, allow the computer to auto-fill your lineup, or fill out your own lineup based upon the opposing pitcher, players' vs. lefty/righty batting average, defense, or any of a number of factors. Program a lineup and starting pitcher for every game if you wish.

After the game, you can view the box score or email game files to your league statistician or other league members with the click of a button. Whether you’re playing against a friend or the computer, replaying a season, playing in a draft league or playing on the internet, you’ll love the real-life excitement of Action! PC Baseball!

If you're interested in building a league full of your favorite teams from past seasons, the Import Team function allows you to do just that. Insert any team from a past season disk with just a couple of clicks, and start a league full of your favorite teams. 

Starting up a new draft league is easy.

You can even draft against the computer.

TEAMS

Teams may be created, modified, moved or imported as desired with a maximum roster size of 100 players! You can even edit team colors and logos.  Players may be created, edited, released, erased, drafted or traded.  From the Roster form, you are also able to set a number of different lineups. You can save up to ten regular starting lineups, as well as set lineups for any particular date of the season. In addition, you can fill out a position depth chart for vs. L/R, rank your pinch hitters for vs. L/R, as well as set a pitching rotation, spot starters, and a detailed bullpen rotation!

View each player's statistics and ratings for a season directly from the team roster. By double-clicking a position player, both his real-life and computer stats are displayed on the Player form: pinch, clutch, home, road, stats by month, vs. L/R break down, and much more. You can display a player's fielding stats by position, as well as individual ratings such as bunt, base running, OF arm, C arm, hit and run, Power vs. L, Power vs. R, and many more.

Action! PC Baseball boasts an extensive Computer Manager that allows you to easily program managerial preferences!  Build a coaching profile for offense, defense, and pitching.  Program lineups, depth charts, pitching rotations, and bullpens.  Set individual player usage.  Set special situations, such as pulling players for a late inning defensive substitute or bringing a reliever into a game to face a single batter.  These and dozens of other managerial preferences can be programmed with ease.  And exporting and emailing your Computer Manager to other league members is done in a few simple steps.

Our Roster Management tools offer complete options for team, roster, and lineup management.  You can set roster limits for opening day as well as September 1.  You have the option of turning off real-life transaction dates and playing your season with injuries and enforced roster limits!  You can specify a maximum number of demotion options per player.

You can make all the roster moves for human managed teams.  The computer will handle promotions and demotions for computer managed teams by calling up injuring replacements, cutting down to the required roster limits and replacing overused or ineffective players.  The computer general manager will even "call-up" emergency spot starters!

You can micromanage strategy and playing time for each player rather than by team.  Specify when to pull a pitcher based on pitch counts, when to pull a pitcher for a pinch hitter, who to use or not to use as a defensive replacement, who to pinch run for, who not to pinch run for, and many more!  You can even specify preferred left and right batting order positions for each player!

The Roster Management tools let you easily make simple or complex managerial decisions. Manage a team any way you like. It feels like real baseball.

PLAYER RATINGS

Players are rated using every available published statistic as well as expert subjective analysis. Each subjective rating—defensive range, outfield arm, catcher arm, base running, bunt, hit and run, clutch pitcher rating, and more—is essential to accurately translate real-life characteristics of the game. For example, the clutch pitcher rating helps to accurately portray the effectiveness of a pitcher such as Pete Vuckovich in 1982, who allowed a high number of hits and walks, yet had a 3.34 earned run average and won the CY Young award. While he may allow a high number of base runners, it enhances his ability to get out of situations with players on base. We use actual L/R splits when available and estimate them for historical seasons. As a result, each player performs as he did in real life with amazing statistical accuracy.

HISTORICAL TOOLS

One unique element of Action! PC Baseball is the Era tool. From 1876 to present, each year is separated statistically based upon league averages from that season.  Therefore, teams from different eras are automatically normalized when playing each other.

Every big league ball park from 1876 to present also has its own statistical breakdown for every season that it was in use. See how A-Rod might have hit in 2002 if he played his home games at Coors Field; or see how many home runs “The Babe” might have hit in 1927 had he played at the Polo Grounds instead of Old Yankee Stadium!

PAST SEASONS

The staff at Dave Koch Sports is continually adding to its lineup of past season disks for all of the Action! PC sports games.

INTERNET PLAY

Action! PC sports games have long been the leaders in internet play. Our baseball game is no exception! In a few simple steps, you can connect for a single game or an entire series against any other Action! PC Baseball game owner—no third party software is needed!  After a game, click one button to send the game headline and box score to every member of your league. Click another button to send the game’s data file to the league statistician. You can even create a league address book and league website with just a few mouse-clicks!
