Last year, with OOTP 16, we saw the creation of the GAF Online Baseball League (GOBL). OOTP 16 introduced officially licensed teams to the baseball simulator. This year, OOTP 17 introduces official MLBPA license, including real FaceGen images of over 800 real MLB players.
Because of the new license: "Every historical season from 1871 through 2015 is included, with authentic logos and real minor leagues". (read more on the official site).
Now, some of these guys update almost every single day. Others, they update when they can....and that's totally fine. Some of the daily guys probably spend 5 minutes each day in game, with more time if truly needed, and other guys might spend 30min in it because they like to dig through the numbers and really play around with their lineups. There are many ways to play the game with varying degrees of time that are totally adequate to keep you competitive.
You can purchase OOTP 17 directly from the source @ http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/out-...park-baseball/ or on steam
