Buy Dad a Baseball Team: OOTP 15

screen1You love baseball. Your dad probably loved baseball.

And you learned to complain and kvetch about baseball from your dad.

“I could run this team better with my eyes glued shut,” he probably said, as the Jack & Coke slid down his gullet.

Well, this Father’s Day, ask your dad to prove it!

Out of the Park Baseball 15 is the computer game for all of you baseball geeks who think they know better. Probably because they know better.

Those of you who know OOTP know that you can start from this current major league season, or a season in the past, or as a manager in Rookie League, and build a team and / or your career into world domination. And if you get fired for running a team like the 1930’s Phillies, then you can always hit the reset button.

This year, the geniuses behind OOTP have made a lot of enhancements. One of which is adding a plethora of international leagues so you can REALLY have world domination. “I will build the best team ever in the Netherlands, and then it’s Taiwan, and then the WORLD!” Another is adding 3D elements to the game (which, for me personally, I can live without because I’m all about simple game play.)

You can choose to manage (or micromanage) each game in a season, or set it up so the computer does that for you. You can choose to run your minor league system or have the computer do that for you. You can choose how hands on you want to be. You can choose to play against other seamheads and stat nuts and lapsed APBA and Strat players worldwide.

You manage the finance side as well. It’s your call to offer extensions and manage budgets. Some owners will spend, spend, spend, and some make the late period Montreal Expos seem like the Yankees.

What you can’t choose, sadly, is the randomness that is baseball. Players get hurt. Players go on slumps. Players hate you. But at least you can try to trade them.

There are so many options, so many features, so many ways to play, that you can’t go wrong with this game.

Me, I started with the current year for the Mariners and tried to make sensible deals. I said no to Logan Morrison, Endy Chavez, and John Buck, and well, I’m hanging in there. I don’t bunt, don’t over-specialize the bullpen, and make sure I don’t waste outs. Still, I’m not dominating because…

It’s baseball.

OOTP 15 is available here for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Buy it for Dad, but don’t tell him to put up or shut up…
