Apple Games Features Out Of The Park Baseball X
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games latest feature takes a swing at Out of the Park Baseball X, the latest incarnation in the sports series. The article includes a sample game season showcasing the game's features, a list of what's new in the latest version, and a rundown of historical seasons players might want to try.

Out of the Park Baseball X allows you to easily import leagues from OOTP 9 and versions 6.5 or 6.12. (To import files from other versions, use the demo version of OOTP 9 to convert a file to that format, and then import that file into version X.) Improvements found in the latest edition lead off with revamped artificial intelligence and even better play-by-play, complete with thousands of new lines of play description.

Next up is a redesigned pitching system that features individual pitch ratings and a reworked endurance system. Now pitchers can improve certain pitches or lose effectiveness with others, forcing you to modify their approach. Injuries are also more realistic, with the possibility that players will suffer setbacks during their recovery, and each minor league team now has its own disabled list too.

During games, you can customize what you see by activating the widgets option and moving the information boxes around the screen. Between games and seasons, salary arbitration and free agent compensation have been adjusted so they more closely parallel what happens in real life, where players can make salary demands and teams can agree to the terms or ask an arbitrator to make a decision. Free agency can complicate those situations, and thatís reflected in OOTP X too.

Thereís plenty more for baseball aficionados to enjoy, including the ability to enter player statistics and automatically convert them into ratings, improvements to the look and feel of the interface, performance enhancements to the game speed, and more.
