Creating a deep baseball management game and releasing a new version of it annually for 19 years is a pretty impressive achievement. Doing so while living in Hamburg, Germany is even more impressive, considering the fact that Major League Baseball scouts aren’t typically scouring that country for talent.
Compared to fans raised in the United States, Out of the Park Baseball creator and head developer Markus Heinsohn became a baseball fan a bit late in life. He recalls: “I started playing baseball when I was 15 years old. It was just a random coincidence because a friend of mine brought a baseball bat and a couple of gloves back from a family trip to Florida. That’s how it all started. A couple of years later we started playing in organized baseball leagues and I really fell in love with the sport and its history.”
