Out of the Park Baseball – Half Off Sale this weekend

Behind Jamie Garcia, the Cardinals snapped their 3 game losing streak on Friday night, beating Washington 4-2.  Coupled with the Giants getting shut out and the Phillies’ extra-inning win, St Louis currently sits in third place in the Wild Card standings, a game behind Philadelphia and a half-game behind San Francisco.

Getting a little off-topic, back in April I was given an opportunity to preview a new baseball game called Out of the Park Baseball.  I was able to set aside some time to play with it, and liked the simulation the game offered; but for a variety of reasons that are entirely my fault, I never finalized the post so you, gentle reader, never read it.

Late last night, an email appeared in my inbox from the OOTP team announcing a half-off sale of the software for this weekend only.  You can pick up a copy of the game for only $19.99.  Here’s a copy from the email:

The link doesn’t work in the photo, but here it is for your convenience.

Like I said, it allows for some pretty good game simulation.  You can play out a complete season in about 20 minutes, or you can manage a team on a day-to-day basis.  There are several other articles out there discussing the product – here’s two, one by our friends at Pitcher’s Hit Eighth, and another from Operation Sports – that will go into a bit more detail and I have, for your reading amusement.

I would like (belatedly) to thank the folks at OOTP for allowing me a chance to test out the software.
