Custom Stats How To Guide

Baseball Stat Manager tracks a large number of statistics for batting, pitching and fielding. However, we realize that no matter how many statistics Stat Manager tracks, there will always be a number of special stats that each coach will want to keep that are specific to their team. To accomodate these stats, Stat Manager allows custom statistics that can be defined separately for each team file. 15 different custom stats can be kept - 5 each for batting, fielding and pitching. This guide will walk through the steps of defining and using the custom stats.

Defining Custom Stats

The first step to using custom stats is to define the statistics. To access the custom stats window, go to Tools>Custom Fields on the menu bar. The window has three tabs, one for batting, pitching and fielding. Each category can hold 5 custom stats. To start using a custom stat, enter the name of the statistic into one of the fields for the specific category. For example, if you wanted to track the number of times a batter swings the bat and the number of time the batter hits a foul ball, add two new batting custom fields: "Swings" and "Foul Balls". It is recommended to keep the stat names short, 3 to 5 charachters long, so that they will fit properly in the report screens when printed out. Click the 'Save' button to save your custom stats or 'Cancel' to discard the changes. You can update the custom stats at any time by opening the custom stats screen.
