Other modes include single-game exhibition, home run derby, play-off, tournament, season and manager.

The new career mode allows you to play multiple seasons. Tournament mode allows you to create a custom tournament with up to eight teams.

The Full-league draft allows you to build your own team from scratch using trade points, that determine the amount of and skill of players you can acquire.
