Excel-ent Statistical Baseball

Have you ever wondered what would happen if the greatest baseball players from the past 140+ years would be able to realistically, based on historical statistics, compete against one another?



Excel-lent Statistical Baseball Statistics Gathering & Player Distribution

Nearly twenty-thousand (20,000) of the best (the B20000), one (1) season, baseball players’ statistics since 1871 were compared and ranked, largely using Bill James’ Runs Created* statistic and other statistics like WAR (Wins Against Replacement) for comparison.

Statistics used were official statistics for:

  • Batters

    • Hits

    • Base On Balls

    • Doubles

    • Triples

    • Home Runs

    • Stolen Bases

    • Caught Stealing

    • Runs

    • Runs Batted In

    • Batting Average

    • On Base Average (Percentage)

    • Runs Created


  •  Pitchers

    • Wins

    • Losses

    • Saves

    • Innings Pitched

    • Appearances (Games)

    • Strikeouts

    • Base On Balls

    • Runs Allowed

    • Earned Runs

    • Wild Pitches

    • Hit Batsmen

Each season of the B20000 was then adjusted for league, year and park factor.

If the player was retired at least five years and has produced 5 or more seasons ranked in the B20000 (4 or more seasons for pitchers) – which left about one thousand players (the T1000) – they were considered for E S B and their best four or five seasons were used for the simulator

The combined totals for those 4 or 5 seasons (B5/P4) were combined for each T1000 player.

The T1000 players were then, as evenly as possible, distributed to 36 teams, forming E S B (Excel-lent Statistical Baseball).



Each E S B team plays a full 162 game schedule.

Each E S B team plays exclusively against other teams in their E S B Conference.

Each E S B team’s schedule includes 18 games against the other five teams in their E S B Division and 6 games against each of the remaining 12 teams in their E S B Conference.

8 E S B teams from each Conference make the play-offs and the two E S B Conference Champions meet in the E S B Championship.

Like most other fantasy leagues, using current players or historic type leagues, you don’t “play” the games; the baseball players play the simulated games using historical statistics.

Unlike most other historic baseball simulators, ESB is capable of allowing, by charted automation, an ESB owner to choose their team’s:

  • Starting Line-Up and Batting Order, including platoons

  • Starting Pitcher

  • Four Game Starting Pitching Rotation

  • Pitcher and Batter Substitutions, both order and situation dependent.

  • Base-running Aggressiveness

  • Infield / Outfield Shifts

Unless directed differently by an owner, the Auto-Manager will manage the entire game or E S B season.

E S B provides a team owner the choice of using Auto-Manager or not, as well as which inning to start using Auto-Manager.

Auto-Manager can use a pre-provided list of choices for certain game situations and substitutions, or can also use many average-based managing approaches.

Both batters and pitchers can have separate types of Auto-Manager methods and start innings.

E S B Challenges

Potential E S B Challenge lineups are selected from Active Rosters of the E S B 36 teams’ available players.

E S B Challenge lineups can be created on a free level or three different paid levels all based on these teams and players in E  S B.
