At the beginning of the season, the folks at Out of The Park Baseball made all baseball blogger association members an offer; play our game and review it for your blog.
Out of The Park Baseball is a game basically allowing you to become the general manager of your team. You pick a league, team, and then start the ultimate quest; building a team that can win the World Series. However, if you fail, you’re fired from the team you pick. Since I didn’t want to mess with the Nationals, I picked the cellar-dweller White Sox.
Your inbox consists of everything from memos from Bud Selig, messages from the owner, trade offers and free agency reminders. Once you set your lineups and pitching staff, you can skip the timeline to opening day.
This aspect of the game is super fun, especially for wannabe-GM’s like me. The only problem I could really find was that at times, the controls were a bit confusing.
The game ended with a 10-4 rout by the White Sox, which ended our three game losing streak.
OOTP Baseball is tons of fun, and I would recommend it to any serious baseball fan. And now for something I never really I thought I would say… Go White Sox!!
