Apple Games Features Out Of The Park Baseball 11
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games latest feature takes a swing at Out of the Park Baseball 11, the latest incarnation of 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.

Team owners had fairly simplistic personalities in previous versions of OOTP, but now they have varying fiscal attitudes and patience levels, along with more complex goals for their clubs. Just like in real life, some of them are free-spending wheelers and dealers looking to win the World Series every year, while others pinch their pennies and would rather let a veteran leave than sign him to an expensive contract extension.

To help you deal with owners, players, draftees, scouts, and other computer-controlled personalities, you can now jot down manager notes, complete with reminders, and you can write your thoughts on player pages too. Position players can migrate over to the pitching side, and vice-versa, allowing you to tap into hidden potential, and you can now clone players and see if their doppelgangers chart similar careers.

Under the hood, a built-in statistics re-calculator regularly pulls simulated statistics in line with historical trends through settings you can customize. Thatís important when playing historical seasons, which also now evolve the way they really did: new teams enter the leagues via expansion during the appropriate years, free agency arrives in 1975, and so forth. OOTP 11 follows Major League Baseball rules in requiring five years after retirement for a player to be considered for induction into the Hall of Fame, but you can change that number.
