Out of the Park Baseball 13 is the 1012 version of the award-winning baseball simulation that GameSpot called "the best baseball management sim out there". OOTP offers unparalleled flexibility in creating your own baseball world. Play solo with a baseball world of your own creation: make a simple, 8-team league, play a typical major league game with 2012 rosters including full minor leagues, create a historical league with real players from any year between 1871 and 2011 or build an enormous world with baseball leagues in multiple countries. For the ultimate challenge, join an online league and test your mettle against other human players!
OOTP 13 is the closest most people can get to being the general manager of a real baseball team. Handle GM tasks like drafts, trades, scouting, waivers, team finances and personnel. Negotiate player contracts. Or, dive into the more hands-on management and set your team's lineups, pitching staffs, and in-game strategy. You can oversee your league at a high level, or play out each game, managing pitch by pitch.
Players in OOTP are rated across multiple skills, and include individual personalities and custom faces created with FaceGen technology. OOTP players progress realistically over time. Try to build a team through the draft, or try to sign big free agents to put you over the top! OOTP also has a powerful news engine that generates personal messages and news articles. Behind all of this is an incredibly powerful statistical engine that tracks an enormous number of statistics for each player in your world. Want to know how your star hitter is doing against righties with runners in scoring position? No problem!

- 2012 Opening Day major leagues roster set

What's New in Version 13.10.38
Minor bug fix
Best baseball sim out there for mac!
I have loved playing Baseball Mogul on my PC for years! It in an all-encompassing baseball simulation game, and when I found out that it doesn't work on macs, I was really disappointed! So the first day I got my mac (like 3 weeks ago), I attempted to find an equally as amazing baseball simulation game, and that is when I found Out of the Park Baseball. It took a little while to get used to, because in all actuality, there were more managerial tasks that I had no experienced in Baseball Mogul. So far, my playing experience has been fantastic and I am extermely happy with my purchase.
The only drawback of the game was that I found out today (August 20th, 2013) that OOTP Baseball 14 just came out. Given the pretty high price of all the OOTP Baseball games, it would have been nice if OOTP could have given the OOTP Baseball 13 users somewhat of a discount on the newer game.
But overall, I have found no major problems with the game and am extremely impressed with how customizable the settings are. A little bit of advice for anyone out there who is currently playing: if you want the real teams (as in MLB names, i.e. Yankees, Red Sox, etc.), then you can go into the league settings and change the names of the teams to whatever you would like. Amazing game, and I highly recommend. But if you are reading this and haven't purchased it yet, I suggest get the OOTP Baseball 14 game, just so you have the most updated game.
I've never played this game before and purchased because it looked like an awesome game. However, WITHOUT ANY INSTRUCTIONS it is very difficule to play. It't like trying to understand a foreign language without a dictionary. If an instruction manual was available it would be helpful. The game has a link the says instructions, but it's only a link to some guy on facebook showing everything he can do on the game. He just bables on and on and his (non) instructions are useless. I'm glad he enjoys managing the Angels.
If I could get my money back I would, but I know that's not going to happen so I'm just going to delete the game from my laptop.. I've been purchasing apps from the app store for years, but tis is the WORST! Don't buy until they provide clear instructions.
