GLEN HEAD, N.Y. - Feb. 8, 2023 - PRLog -- For years, "Opening Day" for many Strat-O-Matic fans has meant a pilgrimage to the game company's Glen Head, N.Y., headquarters to be among the first to get ahold of the new baseball season cards. And while the pandemic didn't allow for the gatherings the last two years, Strat-O-Matic (@StratOMatic), the market leader in sports simulation, is pleased to announce a series of special events in the return of Opening Day on Friday, February 17, to celebrate its return.

Chief among the day's festivities is the induction of the six inaugural members of the Hal Richman Strat-O-Matic Hall of Fame, recognizing six individuals whose contributions to the game have allowed it to grow and prosper for more than 60 years. Additionally, a limited number of Strat Black Sets, the limited-edition collectible set of the 2022 cards printed on heavy, glossy black stock with white lettering which sold out of its online order run, will be made available in a very small quantity on a first-come, first-served basis to attendees. And a live episode of the popular "Strat-Mat" humor videos will also be streamed to capture the excitement of the day.

Veteran broadcaster Bill Daughtry will emcee the induction ceremony.

The six inductees are:
  • Pauline Feelings, the first recognized employee of Strat-O-Matic, who "did it all" beginning with the company's founding in 1961
  • James Williams, the first executive and longtime employee who played a crucial role in game development
  • Steve Barkan, a 40-year employee and lead researcher into the classic baseball seasons
  • Del Newell, an avid Strat-O-Matic player who created the Strat-O-Matic Review, the first significant publication dedicated to the game
  • Bill Sindelar, acknowledged by Richman as the first customer with whom he interacted on a personal basis
  • Warren Bannerman, whose behind the scenes programming enabled Strat-O-Matic baseball to evolve into advanced and super-advanced formats

"We couldn't be more excited about the return of 'Opening Day' and the addition of the Hall of Fame to make this day even more special," said Hal Richman, Strat-O-Matic founder. "We look forward to welcoming fans who have been waiting three years for this day, and honoring six people who are so important to the company's history will be particularly gratifying."
