  • Summary: Out of the Park Baseball 6 is the 2004 version of the award-winning baseball simulation that has established itself as the best baseball managing simulation ever created.

  1. In the world of text-based gaming, this game is, once again, one of the best around.
  2. It manages to capture the ebb and flow of a baseball season better than any other game on the market. [Aug 2004, p.65]

    Even though it's a text simulation without flashy graphics, realistic ball physics, or signature batting stances, it's approachable, accessible, and downright fun. If you have never tried a text sim, OOTP6 is an ideal starting point.
  4. A huge improvement (thanks to a ground-up rebuild) over last year's version... Hardball fanatics everywhere owe it to themselves to try this great game. [Oct 2004, p.96]
  5. It may look a lot like its predecessors, but all of these new features give the game an unmatched feeling of authenticity.
  6. By no means a bad game, Out Of the Park Baseball is just not quite as clutch in game-winning situations as you might like, but anyone who loves the game of baseball should give it a try.
