Out Of The Park Baseball 21 – 2020 COVID-19 Season

It was supposed to be opening day for the 2020 Major League Baseball season on Thursday, March 26. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the start of the season with no known time frame for when play could start. I’ve decided not to way, so, on Thursday, I purchased the latest version of Out Of The Park Baseball, one of the most robust and popular baseball simulation games available. Today is my first chance to create my 2020 COVID-19 season and begin play as my hometown team, the Cleveland Indians.
