Out of the Park Baseball 17

OOTP17 is a phenomenal game. The best baseball sim available.

I have been playing OOTP since OOTP 13 and each and every year, the game gets better and better.

This year, the visual improvements are apparent. The fact they now have MiLB teams in the game gives it another layer of authenticity. The biggest improvement in my eyes is the addition of historical minor leaguers. I haven't dug too deep into it, but being able to play with minor leaguers in the early 1990's is fantastic. It's what I grew up paying attention to, so being able to go back and play through this era with real players from top to bottom is great.

I haven't put a ton of time into the game yet but what I'm playing is the GM of the Colorado Rockies as a startup franchise. From Chipper Jones, taken in the amateur draft, down to late round expansion pick, Bernardo Brito, the game excites me. It'll be fun to see if Brito can accomplish more in my OOTP franchise than he did in real life. I was always impressed by his power potential when he was a Twins prospect.

I love OOTP and highly recommend it to anyone. If I didn't have as much going on as I do, I could see spending 100's of hours playing it.

The learning curve for the game is steep. That is it's biggest downfall but when a game is so in-depth, it is hard to make everything easy to get to.

  3. What's so good about baseball season? Cheap tickets. Of all the mainstream professional sports, baseball sells the cheapest tickets. Many teams sell tickets for $5 to $15. Yes, they're nosebleed seats, but you get so much more than a so-so seat. Your ticket inside can lead to exciting entertainment that's sure to please the penny pincher in you.

  4. We've all seen the movie Angels in the Outfield, right? But there's no way at all that it could have been the slightest bit true, or is it? Things happen on the baseball field all of the time that we can't explain whether it be. See more

  5. Agreed, it gets better day by day. Looking forward to seeing how far it can go.


  6. Baseball scouts do not get impressed that often and when exposed to such talent, the scout is very likely to walk over to the player and invite that player to attend tryout's for a certain baseball team during the spring. Read here
