New Season (answered, pending user follow u if need)

Post by DB22 » Wed Sep 06, 2017 6:58 am

My team is getting ready to enter a new season. Can someone explain the advantages/disadvantages of creating a new season within the app? Will I lose the history of all of the teams we play year after year? (we are not in a league - but always run into the same teams at many tournaments). I don't want to lose that history of how their hitters hit, etc.

Thank you!

The history stays on your device unless you manually delete a Player/team/game . We recommend NOT deleting players/teams/games but instead use LEAGUES to organize and filter groups of stats. (for rough estimation, 30 songs is roughly same as 1 game. so not heavy data storage use.)

The create new season/league button/menu in the app is only on the iOS version (i think)( and just a tool to save some keystrokes if you want. I personally do not use it.

I personally, Create a New Team and Roster Each year ( Eg Brown Bombers (varsity) 2016, BrownBombers (varsity) 2017, Brown Bombers (varsity) 2018.)
and use leagues to differentiate special statistical groups within a season, (e.g. Pre season, conference, Post season) ...
you create the new team roster by selecting the player from the existing player list if a returnee (i.e. Junior now a senior) and in my player manger data base already (i.e. a JV sophomore making varsity as a junior). if a completely new player not already in my data base, (e.g. incoming freshmen) . i then type them in manually . Because that is how i think of the team and like to look back at a year and see who was on the roster . Each player lifetime stats are available under PLAYER MANAGER, and EACH TEAM YEAR STATS Available under TEAM MANAGER

some folks like to have BROWN BOMBERS be a consolidation of ALL years, and use Leagues to group and filter each year. Not my preference
