All-Time Elo Teams Collection available now!
The All-Time Elo Teams Collection is not a new season, nor does it contain any teams not already available from Diamond Mind Baseball. Instead, it takes 64 of the best teams of all-time, based upon the Elo Rating System, and puts them in one place, making them available to you for any project that you wish.
The Elo Rating System is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in competitor-versus-competitor games such as chess. The FiveThirtyEight website applied this system to baseball, rating the teams from every season in modern history. This database contains the top 64 of these teams, with the following adjustments:
- Teams from the war-time years, 1942-45, have been excluded.
- Teams from a given franchise must be separated by at least three years. For example, with the 1939 Yankees included, the 1937, 1938, 1940, and 1941 Yankees are excluded.
The All-Time Elo Teams Collection is compatible with Diamond Mind Baseball - Version 11 and at the low price of $14.95 is a great value for 64 of the best teams in baseball history.
Owners of this collection are invited to participate in the All-Time Elo Co-op Tournament. Visit the Fans of Diamond Mind Baseball community forum to view the official rules and regulations and check out the tournament brackets.
