Review by Todd Brakke:
"Summing up the Out of the Park Baseball 9 experience in a single sentence, paragraph, or even a small novella is not an easy thing to do. How do you sum up a game that lets your create just about every facet of a fully functional baseball world in –what is sometimes- excruciating detail? If you're an absolute baseball stats nut this game will appeal to you. If you live to run historical simulations, this game will appeal to you. If you want to run an online baseball league this game will appeal to you. If you want to create a complete fictional league that has any number of minor league levels from AAA to short season to winter ball, other international leagues, the Rule 5 draft, salary arbitration, contracts with options years, player scouting and development, the ability to grow or shrink your league over time, and have an All Star game that plays on January 31st every year instead of mid-July… well, you can do that. The beauty of this game isn't that it does any one thing exceptionally well, it's that it does everything."
