That's how it was with STATIS PRO BASEBALL

Michael Weinreb on STATIS PRO BASEBALL - Grantland:

To play a complete 162-game slate, to replicate the entire 1983 baseball season, to keep meticulous track of statistics and box scores, to quantify everything on yellow legal pads that my father brought home from the university at which he worked. There was nothing sentimental about it. This was the first job I ever had, to serve as manager and commissioner of an alternate universe, laboring each day to fulfill a quota that existed only in my own head.
I bet if you played, you remember the Ruppert Jones card.

And after Statis Pro, it was Strat-O-Matic.
