just found this....

Schedule Maker

It's for football, and to get the most options you have to pay...but if you think about it, most of the time your schedule is just looped. so you should be able to find an option that works.

Schedules are easy to figure out yourself, with nothing more than a piece of paper.

If you'd like I can write a program that does it for you.

The algorithm is very straight forward, I learned it back in junior high school.

Say you have X number of teams.

Create a 2 by X/2 grid. Place a team name or team number in each of the X grid boxes.

In the first week each team plays the opponent in the box adjacent to them. For each subsequent week leave the team in the upper left most box alone and rotate all the other teams one spot clockwise. Then each team plays the opponent in the box adjacent to them. Keep doing this for however many weeks your league will run.

Is this as clear as mud for you? :)

Hi all -

As has already been posted, you can usually modify a football schedule (or two) for your baseball league and just repeat it. I'm actually the owner of the most popular fantasy football schedules site at http://www.fflschedules.com/ that has already been mentioned above.

I would be happy, though, to make specific baseball schedules available on my site. All I need are some specifications and I can get started. Just email your number of teams, divisions, conferences, weeks, etc. to me at mailto:webmaster@fflschedules.com and I'll make every attempt to assist. All schedules I create for anyone referencing this thread will also be posted on the free portion of my site so it wouldn't cost anything unless you decided to subscribe to the site to take advantage of the advanced features.

Best of luck...

Thanks for the work JoJooBoo! ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Ok, here's a simple example with a 6 team league.

Week 1:
1 vs 2
3 vs 4
5 vs 6

Week 2:
1 vs 3
5 vs 2
6 vs 4

Week 3:
1 vs 5
6 vs 3
4 vs 2

Week 4:
1 vs 6
4 vs 5
2 vs 3

Week 5:
1 vs 4
2 vs 6
3 vs 5

Notice the pattern? I just rotated each team clockwise, and left Team #1 in the same position each time. Every team plays each team one time.

If you need to determine home vs away team, that's easy to do to. Just say the team on the right column is home, the team on the left column is visitors... then for teams playing vs Team #1, odd weeks right column is home, even weeks left column is home.

Clear as mud yet?

Now how does this work when you want to have each team play two games a week and have 16 weeks of divisional play and 6 weeks of interleague?

It's very simple.

Re: Two games in one week:
Week 1 becomes Week 1A, Week 2 becomes Week 1B, just a matter of symantics.

Re: 16 weeks of divisional play and 6 weeks of interleague
The more complicated you make your scheduling requirements, the more complicated the model gets. It simply involves having another (what I call) scheduling matrix. One for divisional play, one for interleague. You can choose which weeks you want to have set aside for your interleague, then use that scheduling matrix for those weeks.

I use to do this stuff with a pencil and piece of paper as a little kid. Fun stuff and very simple when you understand the concept.

Combinatorics is a very fascinating field.
