Never played this, but I got it. Is there a way to play leagues? I would play in one with some of y'all.

You can do a league. It all boils down to what era you want to do and how much you want the farm system to play a role.

Yep. I started off unemployed, since I wanted a rough journey. I was lucky enough to be able to start in AAA, but my best pitcher and catcher were called up after game 1. Game 1 was a 1-0 walkoff for them lol.

It takes time to go through and tweak the settings. You can set up an all-time draft if you really want to.

I bought this game when it was $9.99 during the World Series. I had OOTP 15 prior and am a big fan of the series. I just finished the 2016 season as the GM of the Tigers. Made some pretty big trades, but ended up losing in the Wildcard game. The Indians went on to win the World Series. I had a pretty good offseason signing Strasburg a four star rated closer from Japan. Should be a fun '17 season!

It downloads as an actual application on a Mac. It also keeps track of your progress like a backup on Steam.

I'm not sure if multiplayer is an option. I'll do a little research on their forum

Got mine for the full price a few weeks ago. Kinda disappointed with it, I'm just not as into it as I thought I'd be. I'm super into fantasy baseball and stuff like that, but OOTP just doesn't do it for me for some reason

Agreed. I bought it for full price in 2015 after one of my baseball friends told me it was a must own. Played it maybe 3 times.

Felt like I could do what I was going on there, by simulating a Franchise on The Show, with better visuals.

Thank you! I was just looking a couple days ago to see if there was a deal on it so I could upgrade from 16.

Thank you! First time trying this series out, (as I'm not much of a PC gamer) figured for $1 it would be worth it!

Difficulty is finding someone with the patience, endurance, and the know how to run it.

I'd run it.. but I'm already commishing 2 sim leagues.
