Should've put in the reliever because the pitcher was fatigued and was stuck on the same pitches. Lesson learned.
The game includes a small amount of bluffing, making choices of pitch type to avoid fatigue, and competing simultaneous dice rolling and being the first to roll a 5+ and say "safe" or "out". So solo play is not really possible though I was able to do it enough to understand the rules and the interactions.
Next I will try the solo version which is more a team manager concept of which I've not read the rules yet.
Components are really nice.
