The three dice used in Triple Play Baseball are read red, white and blue to produce a three-digit number from 000 to 999. Results from 000-499 are read on the hitter's card, and results from 500-999 are read on the pitcher's card. Most results are right there on the card, but occasionally you may need to refer to an outside chart. When necessary to roll one die, generally the blue die is used, where the red and white dice are used to produce a two- digit number. There is one extra die for use in special plays, a twenty-sided die. This is primarily used on the Sending Runners? chart and some error plays.
If the result is from 000-499, make sure you look on the proper side of the hitter's card. If the pitcher is left-handed, look under the vs. L range of numbers, and of course, look under the vs. R range against right-handed pitchers. The same goes for the pitcher cards when the result is 500-999. The hitters either bat RP (right pull), RSP (right spray), LP (left pull), LSP (left spray), BP (both pull) or BSP (both spray). Players with two ratings "LP/LSP" (or similar) are used for the range charts. The first rating is for infield range plays, the second rating is for outfield range plays. More on those later.
While most plays will be resolved immediately using only the players' cards, occasionally you may need to refer to an outside chart. Some plays you will need to look at the charts almost exclusively, like stealing and bunting. A few terms need to be defined before proceeding, however. Read More
