Post OOTP Partners With The Trenton Thunder!

From our press release:

“The Trenton Thunder are the gold standard of Double-A baseball,” said OOTP CMO Richard Grisham. “Their alumni reads like a Who’s Who of baseball greatness, and they consistently compete for - and win - Eastern League Championships. We’re delighted to work closely with them to further extend OOTP 18’s authenticity and interact directly with their fans on broadcasts and at Arm & Hammer Park.”

“Our goal is to directly work with as many major and minor league clubs as possible to take our games to the next level,” Grisham continued. “Working with teams benefits our fans in many ways, including park factors, financial models for clubs at various levels, retired numbers, and many other details that we have incorporated into the game. Our fans have been loud and clear with their delight, as it further adds realism and authenticity to a title that has won multiple awards. We could not be happier!”

"Out of the Park Baseball 18 gives everyone an opportunity to be the main decision maker for their favorite team and lead them to a Championship," said Thunder Public Relations Manager Jon Mozes. "As a kid I dreamed of becoming a Major League GM and OOTP 18 gives every fan the chance to live that dream."

In addition to that collaboration, Out of the Park Baseball 18 will be directly integrated in Thunder radio and TV broadcasts. Members of the Out of the Park Developments development team will also be appearing at Arm & Hammer Ballpark on Thursday, August 24th for the Thunder’s game against Richmond. Fans in attendance will compete to win copies of their games Out of the Park Baseball 18, MLB Manager 2017, and Franchise Hockey Manager 3.

About The Thunder

The Thunder have drawn over 9.1 million fans to ARM & HAMMER Park over 23 years and have won the three major awards that Minor League Baseball teams can win; the Johnson Trophy for the "Nation's Best Franchise" (2005), the Larry MacPhail Trophy for Outstanding Club Promotion (2003) and the Bob Frietas Award for Long-Term Success (1998, given by Baseball America). The team has given back over $6.0 million worth of goods, services and monetary donations through Trenton Thunder Charities, under the Grand Slam We Care Foundation umbrella. The Thunder can be found online at trentonthunder.com,facebook.com/trentonthunder, twitter.com/trentonthunder and on youtube.com/AATrentonThunder.

I work about 30 games a season scoring games for Baseball Info Solutions at the Thunder games. Looking forward to meeting development staff there on August 24th. Which staff are planning to be there?

I have no idea

I'm planning on a summer trip to France (dates still TBD, and haven't even discussed it with Markus or Andreas yet) but I'd guess I'll be back in the States by then and I would certainly think I could make it if so. It's not all that far from me, and since I'm originally from Jersey (Bergen County, not Trenton area but still...) I could probably find a place to stay with friends without much of a problem.

I haven't talked with anyone else at OOTP about this though, so I guess this might be a 'watch this space' situation

I'll be there, as will Rich Grisham (Marketing). I'm not sure who else yet. I'll check with Rich.
