I’m hoping some of you APBA Baseball gurus can answer this question.
I know there are as many APBA homebrewed modifications and systems out there as there are Derek Jeter’s ex-girlfriends, but, like Derek Jeter’s ex-girlfriends, I’m too inexperienced to know much about them.
Can anyone answer this question in the comments below?
John Reeder asks:
I’ve been interested for some time in getting APBA, particularly the BAT2 set. But I’ve been gun shy since I learned about the no-control-of-steals situation. Is there no way around that?
The one big thing I liked about Strat, as well as Sports Illustrated’s All Time All Star Baseball, was the ability to decide when to send the runner on certain basehits, when to sacrifice, when to pull the infield in, and when to try for a steal. I hate seeing that control taken away. Is APBA truly like that? No modifications ever conceived?
