Still the best baseball management sim ever, and predictably so given its similarity to last year's great game.

Out of the Park 17 continues to add improvements to each new version and while some of the changes this year may seem small, they’re still quite noticeable, especially the player markers showing the action during a game and the ability to have any two teams in history square off against one another.  As it’s done in the past, Out of the Park 17 shows why it’s the go-to simulation series for someone wanting to manage a baseball team, historical or present day.
