SherCo's GrandSlam Baseball Game is back on the market, in both print and downloadable pdf formats.
The new edition is being produced under license by Hot Stove Games, and will be distributed by ASG Games.
Invented in 1968 by Steve LeShay, SherCo (aka SherCo Baseball Simulation) was the first game to feature
actual ballpark diagrams that factored into the outcome of plays. SherCo was the first game to rate every player
who appeared in a game. It also was the first, and remains to this day, the only game with a "stop-action" system
that allows you to watch every play unfold on the table-top. And, as an added bonus, SherCo was the first game
to give you the official rating formulas so that you can rate any team for which you have the proper stats!
Brien Martin of Hot Stove has updated SherCo's look and feel, changing the basic color scheme of the game,
the game's logo, and even the type-face of the materials. Using the best data available, each and every ballpark
diagram has been re-designed and re-created to give you the best representations of stadia in the game's history.
And, he has also created a set of deluxe stadium charts ... each chart is on an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet (or on card stock
if you buy the pre-printed version). The squares on each chart are just big enough that, using small beads or markers,
you can play right on the charts themselves.
Aside from the 2015 season set (which is available with the purchase of a complete game set or for separate purchase),
SherCo has five all-time favorite seasons available with the new re-launch: 1927, 1930, 1941, 1956, and 1962.
We are also offering re-creations of SherCo's "Teams of Yesteryear" sets ... the best teams from each decade,
starting from 1900-1909 through 1980-1990. These are what we call our "Vintage SherCo Collection" because
we've scanned the original materials and are presenting these products exactly as they were sold from 1975-1995
Also included in the re-launch is the "SLOBS" Manual, a how-to guide to starting and maintaining a short-season league
for both real-life players and for fictional players. The 39-page guide includes all of the rules to follow, plus the basic forms,
tables, and charts you'll need to create your own Coover-like SherCo universe!
We're happy to be able to bring SherCo back to you, the gaming public. We hope you'll stop by our website at:
