Fathers and sons going to baseball games and playing catch together might be a cliche, but who doesn’t get at least a little mushy at the thought, especially when the third Sunday in June rolls around? You have to be made of stone to not get a few feels that time of the year, unless, of course, you have very personal reasons why you don’t.
Father’s Day was the theme of the latest edition of Out of the Park Baseball’s This Week in Perfect Team show. You can check out a replay of the episode on YouTube, and you can catch future TWiPT episodes live every Monday at 9 PM ET at Twitch.tv/ootpdevelopments.
This week, TWIPT host Kris Jardine unveiled 6 new cards that honored dads whose sons have played the game at the highest level too. In addition, he spent a lot of time talking about the exciting new Collection Missions feature in Perfect Team for OOTP 20. You can complete missions by ripping packs and using Perfect Points to buy cards.
Finish missions and earn awesome rewards, including exclusive and super rare Special Edition cards that can’t be pulled from packs. Jardine gave a tutorial of the new feature and did a Q&A with fans watching the stream live.
