These are the 1980 MLB Team Labels. They include the team logo, record, final standing, Playoff Result, Manager(s), Ballpark, Capacity, Weather Ratings, Ballpark Effect Ratings, Fence Height, and any other secondary or commemorative logo. Please see the first blog post for general instructions on printing/application of the labels.
Note* Strat O Matic has inserted information on the ability to rob Home Runs in its ballpark info sheet. This information is included on these labels where the “Homerun” reading is. The asterisk is located on the appropriate side of “Homerun” to reflect the weather and ballpark effect charts. As per the chart:
* Robbing HR Rule (14.5) – An * to the left of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a lefty batter. An * to the right of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a righty batter. Note, this applies to all HR/Flyout splits, not just ballpark home run chances
