Pinch Hitting


Pinch Hitting

I have one player on my roster who is listed as Can be PH for and one player that is regularly on the bench listed as Allow to PH. My assumption was that he'd only pinch hit for that one hitter. What I'm seeing is that he pinch hits for other players. What's the logic on that? The player listed as Can be PH is my only SS so maybe that's why he doesn't pinch hit for him. But all other players are unchecked for Can Be PH for

Re: Pinch Hitting

Can you share some box scores? He should not be pinch hitting for anyone in that scenario (except the one player...)

Re: Re: Pinch Hitting

Not a knock on this poster specifically just wanted to say I never understand why so many people post issues with box scores but never post the box score link, or at least say what league or team. So all Guy can say is shouldn’t happen, but he can’t investigate.

In this case not many leagues so I found the one team that has a single SS. The game log shows there was no pinch hitter. What actually happened is there was a pinch runner, and then a defensive replacement. Unfortunately the box score shows the def replacement as PH and that’s wrong.

Re: Re: Pinch Hitting

Whenever I see these I don't question the poster, but because only the owner can see who can PH, Steal, sub in, be replaced, Sacrifice - no one can answer these - not saying that's wrong- just a fact

Re: Pinch Hitting

Actually Lamarca is a straight pinch hitter in this case.

If what OP said is true and that everyone on the ROSTER (not just the lineup) is set to not be pinch hit for, this could be a small bug in which guys off the bench who come in as pinch runners or defensive replacements are still able to be pinch hit for.

But yeah, more information about the specific situation would definitely be appreciated

Re: Re: Pinch Hitting

Oh I see, Lamarca hit for the pinch runner later. My guess is Woods is in fact set to be hit for, but poster thought from box score that he hit for Moncada.

Re: Pinch Hitting

First off - sorry for not including any links. I'm also always surprised when people do that and then I went and did it!

Second - good job for quickly finding the right league / team!

And third - I think you're right on all accounts. There are bench players listed that do have Can be PH for and they're first going in as defensive replacements or pinch runners and then being pinch hit for.

Mystery solved and working as I have it configured - thanks!

Re: Re: Pinch Hitting

I don't think every knows this yet, but hover over the "i" and you see who the player came in for (since it's unfortunately in the wrong order, and it's a fairly massive job to get those in the right order, believe it or not...)
