Strat-O-Matic’s Strat School Platform Launched To Assist Kids Learn Core Subjects

‘Strat School’ Launches To Help Children Learn Math, Statistics, More While Having Fun Remotely

Strat-O-Matic’s new Strat School is a platform and lesson plans designed for teachers and parents to assist kids with learning about math and stats in order to make decisions based on their interpretation of the baseball data. The concept to use sports simulation games to help kids learn about the probability of an outcome or play after the roll of dice is logical, especially with the spread of COVID-19 and the delay of school openings across the country. Online learning is now a nationwide standard in the hardest hit regions of the U.S. for the foreseeable future. To play, children need to incorporate computed metrics such as batting average and a pitcher’s ERA (earned run average) as quickly as possible like a computer does when solving basic math equations, then make a human decision. These sims require players to also write easy-to-do game recaps. The Sports Techie community blog encourages youth and aspiring adult fans of sport to give these teaching device games a look. Boys and girls aged 6-9 and those 10 and up have two fun, interactive and thought-provoking, gaming choices.

Strat-O-Matic Baseball

“Playing Strat-O-Matic has always been a great way for kids to enhance important skills almost unconsciously,” said Hal Richman, Strat-O-Matic President.

For a kid in the 7 to 10 age range, Strat-O-Matic Baseball Express is your sim learning game. Baseball is a simple game with lots of complexity. Each child learns how to use basic mathematics and statistics to make decisions based on probabilities while practicing their writing skills as if all these core subjects in school were fundamentals of sports themselves.

The Strat-O-Matic Baseball simulation game is for youth ages 10 and up and adults that want to learn about the game and its educational skill building abilities. This game is more advanced than Express via the use of more challenging math and stats. Quicker computations are a focus per dice roll.

Learning about core subjects has never been more natural than by playing Strat-O-Matic. Does your favorite player on a ten-game hitting streak who strikes out a ton, stand a chance to get a base hit off of the league’s hottest closer pitching in his third consecutive game in as many nights with the bases loaded and two outs? Or, do you bring in the veteran lefty relief pitcher for one out versus the left-handed hitting catcher who runs slow as molasses but takes a ton of walks? Calculating an ERA will become second-nature after a while. Summarizing the games key moments is aimed to improve writing skills. Is there more to the game’s greatest player’s than meets the naked eye for student to grasp when analyzing their lifetime baseball metrics, achievements and honors? For sure there is.

Richmond added, “By following our comprehensive plans, teachers and parents can help them stay engaged as they learn not just the math and statistics that are inherent to game play, but lessons like writing and history that are natural extensions of enjoying the game.”

In the fun, virtual environment of playing Strat-O-Matic baseball, all of these educational benefits are possible.

Strat Sets

Sets like the Hall of Famer set is must have for kids wanting to learn about the history of Major League Baseball’s most impactful stars. Negro League Stars by Strat can help kids to understand what Jackie Robinson finally meant to Americans and African-Americans alike when he broke MLB’s color barrier leading to the civil rights movement and today’s BLM protests.


Since 1948, Richmond has guided his company forward as traditional games kids and adults play continue to change and evolve while the need for friendly competition stays ever the same over generations. Back in his Great Neck, NY bedroom, as an 11-year old boy, Richmond invented Strat because he thought he could do a statistical randomness type game better than other baseball board games at the time by using dice as the tool to set statistical probabilities in motion.

In 1962, the original Strat-O-Matic Baseball season game was successfully launched leading to the company manufacturing more top selling sports board game and realism/stats sports digital games in football, basketball and hockey games. All sports can now be played off-line or on a PC and mobile screen. As a result of their position in the industry, Strat has the world’s most comprehensive sports game stat libraries with top-of-the-line seasons that go back about 120 years. Then in 2016, they unveiled Baseball Daily, its first product featuring digital player cards that update every day to reflect real life current player performance as the season progresses. Today, their newest offering is a means to educate kids using their proprietary technology platform and lesson plans.

Sports Techie, give sports leagues credit for all they have done to keep seasons alive despite the risks of coronavirus associated with now more than 200,000 deaths in the United States alone.

Strat even had a 2020 baseball All-Star Game Sim on Wizard World Virtual Experiences as if to tell COVID, you aren’t stopping us from enjoying America’s cherished pastime.

I have been home schooling my son on the autism spectrum for six weeks now. He is in second grade at a public school and is thriving with me at his side learning about core school subjects like math, ELA and music, health and STEM.

Online learning is easy peazy for GenZ and millennials.

Strat-O-Matic Baseball Express makes learning subjects like math and stats easy, fun and iQ building for kids.
