Yankees: Pinstripe-focused TV, movies and more to get your baseball fix
By Ryan Doyle
Alright gamers, its time.
Unfortunately, options for baseball video games are limited. However, two options are among the best sports gaming franchises and are likely to get baseball fans hooked.
MLB The Show 20 – PS4
The Show has been atop the baseball video game mountain for almost a decade. Soon, it will expand to other consoles but for now, it remains a valuable exclusive for the PlayStation 4.
Fans can build their dream squad through the Diamond Dynasty mode and challenge other teams online. Those looking to run the Yankees can dive into Franchise mode which will be an even more realistic experience this year with the addition of the complete minor league rosters. Road To The Show mode can also have you living big league dreams as you take a journey from draft pick to Hall of Famer.
Out of the Park Baseball 21 (OOTP) – Mac OS X, Windows, Linux
For those looking for the most realistic MLB simulator, look no further than OOTP21.
Take the seat of Brian Cashman or Aaron Boone and bring the Yankees another World Series trophy. OOTP is extremely in-depth, from managing the roster to scouting to managing players and development, its easy to spend hours in front of a laptop trying to build a championship club.
There are also historical and fictional modes so you can rewrite baseball history or create a league of your own. Want to erase the dreaded early 90s teams and transform them into contenders or erase the heartbreaking losses of the early 2000s? Well, look no further.
