Baseball Mogul® begins in any year you choose, from 1900 to 2009 with the full roster of your favorite team, or an entirely fictional team of your own creation.
As General Manager, your job is to build the best lineup of players to take your team to the World Series. You can make complex player trades and sign players to multi-year contracts as you build your team, but you'll have to compete with the other General Managers, and negotiate with the player's agents.
If you don’t succeed in your first year, you get a new chance with Baseball Mogul’s in-depth amateur draft. Pick and choose from the best high school and college talent around the world. If your new players are good enough, have them join your team right away, otherwise send them to your minor league franchise for training and improvement.
But Baseball Mogul doesn't stop at the front office. You have complete control over your team on the field. Set the lineup and pitching rotation for your team. On game day, you choose your level of involvement. Retire to the luxury box and make calls to the dugout as needed. Or take control of each player, choosing what pitches to throw and when to bunt or go for an extra base. A powerful game engine simulates each pitch of the game based on customized player ratings and over 100 years of historical data, assuring you the maximum realism possible!
- Animated Play-By-Play! In-game Manager Mode lets you call plays and make substitutions as if you were in the dugout. Or retire to the owner's box and let your coaches and players control the action. It's up to you!
- Pitch-By-Pitch Mode! Fully interactive pitch-by-pitch mode puts you in complete control of the game. Graphical batting and pitching interface gives you pinpoint control over each pitch. Brush back the batter with an inside fastball, then put him away with a splitter in the dirt
- Lefty-Righty Stats! Baseball Mogul 2010 tracks every match-up. Whether you are pinch-hitting in the 9th or trading for someone to platoon with your left-handed outfielder, Baseball Mogul puts all the data at your fingertips. Every scouting report includes lefty/righty splits, plus a skill breakdown against each type of pitcher (or hitter)
- Fast Simulation Speed! It wouldn't be Baseball Mogul if you had to take a bathroom break while the season progressed. Baseball Mogul 2010 can play a full season, including all computer trades and roster moves, in under 30 seconds. We re-wrote the simulation engine and then we optimized it, because baseball games should be fun
