when picking parks, they have HR and Singles ratings. a few years ago, their was a list that reflected doubles and triples friendly parks. anyone know where to find those ratings?

I don't ever remember a list of those, rather just rumblings in the background about it.

It's in the windows game, so I assume it's built in here as well.

If it is here, we certainly should be made aware of it.

Not that this will settle anything, but one can only try

It's a max rule in the Windows game which is not operative in 365, as shown in the wiki that documents which max rules are operative.

Correct Board Game Excesses - This is a black box in which the game adjusts the ability of certain players to get certain stats.
So that people know that changing results is a feature not a bug: The dice displayed as the result is meaningless because they are not random, they are the result of a program deciding what dice to display.

For the long time Strat-O-Matic board game player the tradeoff is getting an improved game at the cost of a slight loss of game engine visibility.

So, just how is the game engine altered? Well, this depends upon the mix of Maximum Rules that are in play, but the game engine changes fall into one or more of the following categories:

DICE ADJUSTMENTS - Random numbers are used with a series of complex calculations to determine whether or not to override certain play results. If this determination is made another dice roll is made internally and the final play result is displayed on the screen. The on screen dice do not animate until the final play result has been determined.

SPLIT ADJUSTMENTS - Random numbers are used, again with a variety of calculations, to determine whether or not split card readings are to be overriden. The split result is not animated until a final determination is made of the play.

CARD ADJUSTMENTS - Certain portions of card results are overriden. For example, say you turn on the "More baserunning decisions" Maximum Rule. If you get a Single* result the "*" (which means that all baserunners advance just one base) is ignored and a more complex and realistic baserunning system is used.

COMPUTER ONLY RULES - Certain rules only appear in the computer version of the game -- no board game counterpart exists.
Maximum rule: Correct Board Game Excesses
EDIT
This option improves overall statistical accuracy by adjusting for minor variances that cannot be accounted for in the board game.

Turning on this option improves the statistical accuracy of certain players who had extreme performances. For instance certain pitchers such as Greg Maddux allow very few walks. Using this option will enable Maddux to duplicate his real-life dominance in this area. A number of categories are affected by this option including home runs, walks and strikeouts.[b] Also pitchers hitting will be affected by using this option, resulting in less walks and extra base hits by pitchers.[/b]

This option was split out from Improve statistical accuracy -- as part of the Version 10 release.
