MLB Manager 2015 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 winner of several editors choice awards every year.

The game offers three gameplay modes:
- Major League Baseball Game: Choose your favorite MLB team and play out the 2015 season and beyond. There is no limit, guide your team into the future!
- Fictional Game: MLB Manager 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 MLB Game: Choose one of three past MLB seasons -- 1919, 1939, or 2012 -- and see if it produces a different outcome. Additional historical seasons are available as in-app purchase for $0.99 each, $4.99 for a 10-season bundle, or $19.99 for all available seasons (114 in total!). International currency conversion rates may apply.

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 the next superstar, 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 MLB Manager's living world evolves, players develop their careers, age, and eventually retire, with a possible spot in the OOTP 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.

MLB Manager 2015 is the ultimate game for baseball fans!

Looks great. I just don't like baseball though!

I know they're doing a football (NFL) one next so I can't wait for that

My favorite release every year. Except this time I'll be getting it on android since I just preordered the s6e.
Can't recommend this enough if you like baseball or just managing a sports team. Great depth and the fantasy leagues are fun to do. You get quite invested in your made up players.

Love picking this up every year! I'm super thankful for the official license, so I don't have to add the logos myself. Will all the ballparks be represented by photos eventually?

Also, I noticed that I cannot get the Action, Back, and View buttons to work properly when the iPhone 5S has the headphone port on my right. I have to tap a little above the actual button. Not sure if it happens all the time or not yet.
