Front Office Allocations

Front Office Allocations

Money between the league salary cap and your front office payroll can be allocated to player development and scouting. Allocate a percentage of available funds to each of these categories.

  • Player Development Allocations assists your AAA and LM (Low Minor) players develop. Young players will develop even without funding, however, funding this area will allow for faster development.

  • Player Drills Allocations assists your veteran players and active roster players to keep their skills at a higher level after they have reached their prime.

  • Batting Scout Allocations determines the accuracy of the offensive and defensive ratings displayed for each player.

  • Pitching Scout Allocations determines the accuracy of the pitching and defensive ratings displayed for each pitcher.

10-Point Allocation System:

All allocations are done using a 10-point allocation system. Full funding for each category, in truth, costs $4.76 million, not $5 million. Funding is capped at $5 million, or 10 points. Funding beyond $5 million will have no benefit.

How Does the Point System Work?

The point system is most easily explained using the scouting areas. Take the example of $2.5 million funded for the Batting Scout. This means that 5 points have been allocated for the Batting Scout. All of the players on your own roster will display their ratings based on that 5 point scale.
