limiting features of playing a simulated game of baseball, stolen bases and certain plays such as an on-base player advancing two bases from his teammate s single, will not be allowed Depending on the amount of time you can devote to the tournament, you may have to limit games to 2 or 3 innings. You may also want to divide the teams into 2 leagues where each team plays every team in its league. The team with the most wins in each league will play each other in the Fantasy Baseball World Series. Extensions & Connections Have students investigate the role that mathematics plays in other sports such as basketball, soccer, tennis and football. If there are 20 baseball teams and every team played each other, and all of the winners played each other, and these winners played each other, in total how many games will have been played to determine the winner?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
