The game lets you do almost anything a real-life general manager can do to guide a baseball team to glory. Set your lineups. Replace that aging veteran with a rookie from your minor leagues. Put your injured starter on the disabled list and scout the waiver wire for someone to fill that roster spot. Put that disgruntled star heading for free agency on the trade block and see what shakes out. Negotiate contracts with free agents and extensions with your own players. Set your scouting budget, and have your scouting director get a closer look at that free agent pitcher from Japan. The game has no limits--you can guide your team into the infinite future. But it does not end in the front office. OOTP 9 lets you call every play from the dugout; you have total control over your team on the diamond. The most realistic baseball simulation engine on the market handles all the games of your virtual baseball world. You can even save your most exciting games as replays and share them with your friends or the thriving OOTP community.
