The Unofficial SDMB OOTP Baseball League currently has an opening and we’re looking for an owner to fill it.
For those who don’t know, OOTP stands for Out of the Park. It is a baseball simulation game that puts you in the general manager’s seat. Their website is here. In short, you have your 25 man roster, plus three levels of minor leagues (AAA, AA, A). You draft and develop players, sign free agents, offer and negotiate trades, set promotion dates, manage your team’s finances, etc. The game is available through the website.
We currently have an eight team league (really two four-team leagues) in our second season. We’re currently using version 4, but we’ll be switching to version 5 at the end of the current season. In addition, there is a possibility that we’ll be adding two more teams at the end of the current season as well.
The franchise that is currently available is the Kingston franchise. It is in a bit of the dumps. They are currently in last place in the Zotti League, doing their best Detroit Tigers impersonation. They are currently 18-41. You may not be able to win the Cecil Cup with them this year, but if you’ve ever wanted the challange of taking a franchise from the bottom to the top, then this is the team for you. At the season’s end, you’ll be able to rename and relocate the franchise, if you so wish.
The basic parameters are:
[li]Fictional players[/li][li]Modern-style play[/li][li]No salary cap[/li][/ul]
All we ask is that if you join that you participate actively. We simulate two week’s worth of games each Wednesday night.
If anyone has any questions about the game, feel free to post them and I (or other OOTPing Dopers) will answer them.
