iOOTP Baseball 2012 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 2012 season. Will Yu Darwish dominate? When will Bryce Harper debut? 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 -- 1924, 1969, or 2004 -- 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!

I`ll give it a try as not many seem to like that Franchise because of it`s Theme/Price Tag.

looks REALLY SIMILAR to 2011. This couldn't have just been an IAP?

Instabuy as soon as it hits US AppStore!

By the way any plans to maybe add player development reports and progress in the minors? And more things to offer in contract negotiations such as a no trade clause or customize contracts to allow for front loaded cntracts and such for example? Would really add to the depth of the game even further.

Regardless, can't wait.

Downloading now! Spent a ridiculous amount of time on iootp 11 last year. Everyone who's held back about $5 should go for it! It's such a great game. More people really should be excited about this

For the player development report, that is very high on my list for the first major update. Actually, in my development version I have a first prototype screen design already done.
