New features in iOOTP Baseball this year:
- Real 2014 rosters and schedule! Every player on every major league team is available, along with the top 20 minor league prospects for each team. Major league player ratings are based on PECOTA by Baseball Prospectus, the best player projection system today.
- Player Editor - Make adjustments to player ratings and biographical info, or put yourself into the game
- Redesigned interface
- Improved play-by-play commentary and news stories
- Improved AI engine
- iPhone 5 and full Retina support
- Universal build, the iPad HD version is included for free!
- Plenty of small tweaks & improvements

iOOTP Baseball 2014 features a living world that uses the same robust simulation engine found in Out of the Park Baseball for Mac and PC, the best-selling and best-rated baseball management game of all time. Out of the Park Baseball is the second-highest-rated PC game ever on Metacritic and also received the PC Gamer Sports Game of the Year Award.

The game offers three gameplay modes:

- Major Leagues: Choose a team and play out the 2014 season. Will Kershaw again dominate the NL? How will Tanaka perform under the Spotlight in New York? How does Mike Trout continue his excellent young career? Find out!

- Fictional: iOOTP creates one of four fictional baseball worlds and populates it with fresh players and clubs. Select a team and build a dynasty from scratch.

- Historical Replay: Choose one of three past seasons -- 1919, 1939, or 2012 -- and see if it produces a different outcome. Every other year in history is available as in-app purchase!

After selecting a gameplay mode, choose a team and handle every aspect of managing it:

- Manage your team, set lineups, depth charts, pitching staff and more!

- Call the shots from the dugout and watch the games unfold.

- Step into the shoes of the General Manager: Negotiate contracts, sign free agents, put together trades, draft amateurs, promote players from the minors etc.

During games, the play-by-play text is generated from a huge database of tens of thousands of lines that bring the action alive. Bottom of the ninth, two outs, bases loaded, you're down by two runs and you have your best hitter stepping to the plate against your opponent's rock-solid closer ... What will happen next?

During the season, news tickers bring you headlines from around the leagues! Your biggest rival just pulled off a blockbuster trade with the trading deadline looming ... How will you respond?

As iOOTP's living world evolves, players develop their careers, age, and eventually retire, with a possible spot in the Hall of Fame waiting for them. New players drafted by you and groomed in the minors take their place and become the next generation of superstars.

iOOTP Baseball is the ultimate game for baseball fans!

still a fun series though, wonder if there will ever be animations on the mobile versions.

the ratings im more concerned about are the prospects, especially the pitching prospects.

ex: henry owens, a top 50 prospect, is a 2 star potential
same with andrew heaney, while christian vasquez is 4.5 stars
and brandon workman, who has shown the ability to be a #3 starter in the majors, is a 1.5 star potential

and i also cant control myself with the editor

also....where the hell did they get the prospects list from? XANDER BOGARTES IS THE NUMBER 2 PROSPECT IN THE MLB AND YOU HAVE HIM LISTED AS 26


if you cant tell im a die hard sox fan

Game Impressions

bought the game at noon here in china...its' now 522am. finally putting the game down lol player editor is great. i have to agree with some of the previous posters, prospects ratings seem rather random. is anyone finding the play by play text a little choppy? not as smooth running as iootp 13. injuries seem way too common. i am playing as the red sox and just played the yankees...and half their starters were out lol...not complaining though 27-3 record so far haha

Is it worth getting if I have iootp 2013? Any way to add real MLB logos? I did it for iootp 2013 on non-jailbreak device.

I am enjoying it, but it feels a lot like 2013 but with iphone 5 support finally. Yes, I put the same logo files in the same file folder as I did with 2013 and it worked fine. However, people on the iOOTP forum said the ballpark images aren't working. But then again, I don't know if they were trying iphone 5 size images or the older ones...

As far as is it worth it... There's a player editor, which some people are enjoying. I wanted manual save files separate from auto saving, but they still haven't offered that (if you quit mid-game, you still can't revert to an old save and begin that game again). ALSO, there's still no ball/strike count or overall pitch count listed in field view where it would be most helpful. In fact, I can't find ANY screen to reference how many balls/strikes I have if they don't mention it numerically in the commentary. Just seems like a totally weird thing to leave out of a stat heavy manager!!

Thanks! Seems like having retina display for the text heavy nature and iPhone 5 widescreen support might be the biggest two advantages for me over 2013.

I'm likely not going to be using the editor mode much at all.

Can you remind me how to add the logos and stadiums again. I did it once and chose to never remove the app from my phone since I'm not all that tech savvy...

Documents/saved_games/Game 1.lg/news/html/images

In that folder is where I replaced the logos.

Haven't tried loading the ballparks yet because all my ballpark images fit the old screen size and not the iPhone 5.

I presume a new version of this is due soon with the 80% price drop. I've always been kind of curious about OOTP but I know _nothing_ about Baseball, I used to really enjoy Championship Manager/Football Manager before it got to complex and IIRC OOTP was using their engine for a time many years ago.

How buggy is it? I see there was a 1.1 release in June but that's been it.

I believe the discount is just for the World Series. Normally, they release new iterations shortly before the start of the regular season. 99 cents is a bargain to see if you like it. It's very deep and involved. I know baseball, but I'm not a huge fan of it. I still play the game for a few weeks each year because of how refined it is. Once their NFL app comes out (probably 2 years away), I'll be a happy man.
