IMG Interviews OOTP Baseball Creator Markus Heinsohn
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new interview with Out of the Park Developments' Markus Heinsohn about his long running Out of the Park Baseball series, currently in its 13th incarnation. The interview covers a variety of topics including the inspiration for the first game, the source of his creativity, and how fan input shapes each new version in the series.

Jon Carr: How did OOTP start out? What sparked its initial conception and release?

Markus Heinsohn: A friend of mine brought home a bat and a glove from a trip to Miami, so we started hitting tennis balls into the neighbor’s gardens. That was in 1991. We then formed a baseball club and started playing in organized baseball leagues in 1994. In the meantime I played all sorts of baseball computer games, but there was no management-related game that I liked, so in 1998 I decided to simply develop my own game, just for fun. When it was done in 1999, I figured it was probably good enough to earn some money with it, and that’s when it all started.
