Game Central The gaming world of K. Fields














North American League Baseball. Home to the seven-time world champion Brooklyn Knights. Powered by Out of the Park Baseball.

I started back in 2000 with Out of the Park Baseball 2 and decided to play the provided demo league with its fictional players. I started the league from scratch, assumed control of the Brooklyn team, and ran through a complete player draft. The statistical depth of the game blew me away. I chose not to simply simulate each game. I personally managed every at bat of every Brooklyn game. The computer handled the business of every other team in the league. After completing a full season, I was ready for another so I moved straight on to the 2001 season.

I upgraded to Out of the Park Baseball 3 when it came out and played the NALB 2002 season with it. I played the 2003 season in Out of the Park Baseball 4 and used Out of the Park Baseball 5 for the 2004 season. After a hiatus of three years, I resumed playing North American League Baseball. Back in 2004, Out of the Park Developments joined with Sports Interactive and adopted SI’s database engine and a lot of its technology. I completed the 2005 season with the completely overhauled Out of the Park Baseball 2006. I used Out of the Park Baseball 2007 for the 2006 season.

Out of the Park Developments split from SEGA/Sports Interactive in 2007. They returned to their old version numbering and released Out of the Park Baseball 9 in June 2008. I used OOTP 9 to play the NALB 2007 season and OOTP 10 for the NALB 2008 season. Out of the Park Baseball 10 featured improved HTML reports and a completely redesigned pitching engine that rates pitchers’ individual pitches. I have played all NALB seasons since 2009 using Out of the Park Baseball 11. The fielding engine was improved in OOTP 11 and new fielding stats were added, including zone rating, fielding efficiency, and team defense efficiency. The amateur draft was enhanced with signing bonuses, player demands, a slotting system, post-draft contract & bonus negotiations, and more.

I played the NALB 2015 season with OOTP 17, which added many new features beyond OOTP 11. I upgraded to OOTP 18 for the 2016 season. The 2017 season was played with OOTP 19, which provided fairly realistic player animations for the first time. OOTP 20 added improved AI and even more realistic animations, which was a nice improvement for the NALB 2018 season. The 2019 season was played with OOTP 21, which featured scouting and drafting enhancements and some UI tweaks.
