Difficulty Adjustment

[ Return To Top ]

Each league has been given a difficulty level, based on the performance of players in that league compared to the same players' performance in other seasons. The reference difficulty level was defined by the trend line of the National League from 1947 to 2002, and extended backwards to 1871. The difficulty adjustment is the ratio between the actual difficulty level and the reference level.
