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!

I get this every year. Easily in my top 5 for iOS games.

It's not for everyone but if anyone has any questions, let me know.

this is also one of my favorite games ever

the player editor will be a welcome addition, especially if xander bogartes and henry owens are not rated up to the level they should be

I've got this every year too because it's fun to manage my favorite team (after putting in MLB logos and ballparks). However, it looks like they still haven't implemented manual save slots instead of automatic saves ALWAYS making you pick up where you left off. Sometimes I unfairly lose or accidentally bunt instead of take a pitch and I just want to revert to the beginning of that specific game. Here's hoping they'll play FHM2014 and see how useful that feature would be.

yeah the editor is nice. unfortunately, I have a hard time controlling myself when it comes to editing.

Over on the ootp forums, a lot of people like to show who they managed to draft, randomly generated freaks of nature, which was always fun to see. With the editor, those days are gone. But thats only minor to what is a great addition to the series.

I will say though, it does need an update to get all the text to fit correctly.

edit: the text is goofy on my iPad mini. looks great on my iPhone 5.

Pretty good

I like the editor, but there are just some really weird choices for player ratings here. They make Alex Wood (rookie for the braves, pitched in three games last year) BETTER than Craig Kimbrel who has broken at least 300 100+ year old records and has more saves in his first three seasons than any pitcher in history. Kimbrel is a 4 start player and Wood is a 4 and half star. Again, with the editor I can fix this issue which is great.

There still seems to be way too many wild pitches and walks every game though. The opposing pitcher and my pitcher (no matter who is pitching) will average 2 wild pitches and 5+ walks a game.

I like it and the editor will fix a lot of issues, but there is just some weird results sometimes.

Those ratings might be closer than you think, I would suggest switching from a star rating system to a 20-80

and then the actual and potential ratings to 1-100

gives you a better insight on who is truly the elite versus very good. the difference between a 4 star and a 4 1/2 could actually be one point. Not saying you still wouldn't have to edit BUT it might be closer than you think.

I just bought the 2013 one and it is sitting there rusting. I guess I don't need this one to join it heehee. It is fun though. I like manager games when I get time to play em!
