I've decided to create a little bingo game for all the playoff games not featuring the A's.
What it is: Like you may have seen at minor-league ballparks, you get a bingo card and instead of having numbers read off, you fill out your card based on events during the game. For example, a double by the shortstop could correspond with N32. Naturally, if the shortstop was to hit a double, you'd cross out N32 on your card.
How to play: Just fill out one of these before the first pitch of a game and be sure to declare what team you're playing as.
I want to run one! Post here in the comments if you want to bingo-master a game.
How to run a baseball bingo game: You'll normally want the traditional single, double, triple, home run, walk, ground out and fly out for a batter plus one other, whether it be RBI, strike out, stolen base or whatever statistic you choose to go by. Make sure you have the same thing for each of the 9 players in the lineup, and, since there are a total of 75 numbers that can be called in bingo, come up with either 7 or 8 outcomes for each spot in the lineup. Then, to round out the 75 spots, come up with few miscellaneous stats that can occur for anyone on the team to count.
With that, let's get right to it! If you want to sign up for a game, just post in the comments and make sure your scorecard is ready the day before the game.
NOTE: For NL games, I'll usually do it by spot in the order. For AL games, I'll usually do it by position instead of spot in the order.
