When Out of the Park Baseball 15 debuted the ability to play out games in 3D stadiums, Mike Silva found his calling and began creating historical 3D stadiums and sharing them with others. (You can find the complete list on our forum.) “I had always had a love for baseball stadiums and their unique appearances, as well as their effect on the sport,” he says.
Silva continues: “I began my sports gaming days with Microleague Baseball in the mid-80’s as a 10-year-old. I was completely sucked in at that point, but it only had one stadium. When Pure Stat Baseball came out, there was an optional stadium disk which I got as a birthday present and it opened me up to every MLB stadium in the league.
“I would always take graph paper as a kid and try to draw out many of the field layouts from the various stadiums. Being from Boston, Fenway had its obvious charms and I would draw the Green Monster and the unique shapes of the outfield every day.”
