Description

MLB Front Office Manager is a managerial simulation where the player is responsible for the athletic and financial success of his baseball team. As with most non-German games of this genre the financial aspect is limited to player trading and hiring players through free agents. The player spends the most time with his team: line-up, studying extensive statistics (divided over many menus in a big font) and tactics. The matches are shown in a 3D presentation and the player can give commands to his athletes.

Before starting his career the player can choose his former profession which influences his stats, e.g. a former scout has a good eye for talents. With successes the player gains experience points which improve his stats. Besides the usual 30-year career there are three fantasy playing modes: In "Rotisserie" the championship is not solely based on the athletic success of the team but in the personal ranking of the player in certain categories, in "Head-to-Head" the player changes his team multiple times during a season and in the third finances play absolutely no role. There is also an online-league.
