Baseball Stats Spreadsheet–  THE USE OF CALCULATION SHEETS FOR FANTASY BASEBALL MOCK DRAFT

When the fantasy sports leagues became popular for the first time several years ago, my husband needs help to keep track of the baseball baseball players’ fantasy mock draft in which he was involved.

At that time I was using a Lotus 123 spreadsheet, but later it was introduced in the Excel program which I found much easier to use. As most people now know, Excel is part of the Microsoft Office suite of programs. When my husband and I used the program, it was much simpler than it is today.

The purpose of these first spreadsheets, as I mentioned before, was to keep track of the statistics of the players in my husband’s fantasy baseball league. [19459002

] The projects related to these fantasy leagues are carried out in a similar way to the great real league projects. In a fantasy league, however, all active players in a real league (in our case, the American Major League Division) are eligible for the project. Due to this format, we had to maintain our own statistics for each of the players that my husband Bill had drawn for his fantasy team, which consisted of many players from several different teams in a real Major League Division.

If all this sounds very confusing, it was definitely for me at that time. Finally, after putting everything on paper, we came up with a solution -. Use the Excel spreadsheet to enter statistics for each player with formulas that results in averages for players and totals for Bill’s own team

I remember Bill being so excited when he was invited to select a team of his own in the “Grill League” that several of his friends had formed. The night before the project he could hardly sleep and the next day, armed with his list of players, he left for the place where the project was going to take place. These types of meetings can last several hours and involve a lot of discussion.

From the day of the draft onwards, we became very busy (even though we retired) with maintenance of their team Totals per day so that the monetary value of the players on their team was always available. Whenever another owner would approach any of us regarding a trade or negotiation of any kind, we were willing to talk.

Today, there are countless of these fantasy leagues on the Internet and among friends and families in almost every sport I could mention.
