Base-Stat from Sonntag Sports Management is designed to be easy to use and offer the convenience, accessibility, and power of web-based software. By utilizing the power of the web Base-Stat Online is able to provide all the benefits of the latest technology without the cost and storage requirements of a stand-alone software package. With Base-Stat Online there is nothing to download.   This product was developed and adapted out of use at the USA Collegiate Baseball level. It is designed for use by coaches, managers and stats keepers for minor and amateur baseball and softball teams. Please take the time to read through this short help file. It will quickly familiarize you with Base-Stat Online and contains many helpful tips. 

Stats are kept in Base-Stat Online in two main categories, Batters and Pitchers. Obviously, Batters Stats include all those stats relevant to a players offensive performance and Pitchers Stats include those totals earned while on the mound. Both Batters and Pitchers sections contain fielding stats. 

Base-Stat Online allows you to add or delete as many player’s names as necessary. The initial lists of Batters and Pitchers is empty. Normally you will add a player name for every player who records stats during the season.  

To add Players: choose Add Player from the menu on the right. Type the First name, last Name and Number of the Player and Click Submit the mouse. you want to add a player named "Others" for part-time players who are not expected to be a major contributor to the teams stats. When a player is added, his/her name is added to the list in alphabetical order. Player names are automatically added to both Batting and Pitching stats. If a player has not yet recorded any stats, they will not be displayed in the stats list. (You can verify a player hads been added simply by clicking the Change Players link. Then click the browsers Back button to return to the previous page without making any changes.)

To delete a Player: choose Delete Player from the menu on the right. Caution: This function deletes the player, and his/her cumulative stats, from the season totals. You will be prompted to select the Player to delete.

For example, a pinch runner that does not advance should be recorded as playing 1 game. Likewise, a fielder that plays a defensive position, without factoring in any outs or errors, but does not ever bat, is recorded as playing one game.
