What is COBB?

COBB is an alternative history of America's pastime from 1901-2009 which balances statistical accuracy with poetic license as only OOTP10 can.

Each November, incoming rookies will be randomly drafted. Babe Ruth could end up playing for the Cubs, Sandy Koufax might toe the rubber at Yankee Stadium, or Christy Mathewson & Rube Wadell might anchor the Pirates rotation for a decade, becoming the greatest 1-2 tandem in baseball history.

In COBB, players will be traded. Players will become free agents and suffer career ending injuries. Legends will retire before their time, unknowns will become Hall of Famers.

What About Statistical Accuracy?

I ran several test sims before creating the official COBB league and was very pleased with the results. Pitching dominated the Deadball Era (pre 1920), home runs became a force in the 20s and 30s; great hitting and pitching dominated the next three decades (40s-70s), and Steroids found their way into the modern (post 1980) game.

And that's all you can really expect out of a sim that spans the entire history of modern baseball.

It's also why I didn't begin COBB in 1871 or 1876. 19th century baseball was so different from the modern game that it's impossible for OOTP to accurately reproduce it. The rules were dramatically different, teams and leagues were as unpredictable as the stock market.

Bottom line, OOTP has come a long way in the 10 years I've been playing and testing it. At no time in the past have historical sims been this user friendly and historically accurate.

So sit back, relax and watch history unfold!
