Play Minor League Season?

As a prospective customer, I am intrigued by the inclusion of Minor Leagues in the game. Can I play a Minor League season with the included minor league teams? I really dont care about MLB, just MiLB. Thank you.

You can and there are multiple options.

You can just be the manager and the computer will be the MLB GM which means they will call up, send down and trade guys on your roster with no input from you.

You can be the MLB GM and take control of the entire organization and play out each level of the minors and just sim the MLB if you so choose.

It's all up to you.

I manage in the minors in my game. If youíre not the GM, it can be a bit frustrating, not gonna lie. The GM doesnít always do a great job of keeping your team stocked with all the right positions, and they often yank your star players from you. But I tend to think thatís realistic so I like it.

But again, you can be the GM and control everything. You can just simulate the major league games and delegate all of the decisions at that level.

One thing I recommend, depending on how particular you are:

When you set up your game file, create a persona and make him commissioner, not assigned to any team.

Then, create another persona for yourself. Assign yourself to the team you want to manage, but donít make yourself commissioner.

Then, play out your game as your manager. If something comes up that is too aggravating for you, switch to the commissioner profile and make the change, then switch back to your persona.

This will give you the option of changing anything you donít like, but you wonít see any of those options unless you expressly choose to.

Someday, I would love to see Markus add some more depth to the minor-league management experience, but I understand that I am probably part of a tiny minority.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions!

Hi, Battists.

>> Then, create another persona for yourself. Assign yourself to the team you want to manage, but donít make yourself commissioner. <<

Thank you, I will keep that in mind.

I purchased and installed the game and I've been poking around in it. I played a game and it was fun. Is there a screen to see the players on a given roster? Say if I'd like to see who is on the Buffalo Bisons' roster in 1994, is there a screen that shows that? Or do I have to set up a league first.

Thanks in advance.

You would have to add a team to a league in order to see the roster. To be honest tho, Iím not sure if historical minor leagues have real players in them.

I created a league and added the 1946 Bisons. But there are only 13 players on the Bisons. Compared to the other IL teams, that's a lot. I wonder if maybe only players who made it to rhw majors are included. Or, more likely, I'm doing something wrong. I created a 1994 league and the minor league teams seem to have 25 players on them, so maybe I just have to keep in more modern years.

Thank you, everyone, for your help. I appdrelciate it.

There are 41 players in the game database on the 1946 Bisons roster but as they are affiliated with the Tigers they might be moved by the games AI to either other farm teams or to the Tigers spring training or off-season rosters.

Spritze, you are ridiculous. Just sayin'.

I know you've been around here forever. Can you believe how far things have come since you first got involved with historicals in OOTP??

Every year it seems Markus makes it a point to add something awesome to historicals even though historical players are a bit of a fringe group with tassels.

Is there an easy way to "re-affiliate" them with the Bisons?

Nope. It has been asked for the last few versions but is apparently not possible.

Could you not just take over as GM manager of the Tigers and set everything except player personnel movement to the cpu controlled assistant GM. Then you can control who is on each minor league affiliate including Buffalo and if you want to manage the Bisons as well just play out their games.
