The Out of the Park Baseball team has long been known as a crew that takes to heart feedback from its community, especially requests for new features and other content. Since they started adding new cards to Out of the Park Baseball’s Perfect Team mode, a player has emerged as the one requested the most by far.
He’s not a Hall of Famer, but he was a multi-sport star who was well-known for his Nike commercials as well as his feud with fellow football player Brian “Boz” Bosworth. He was also notable for his antics on the baseball field, including an amazing run up an outfield wall and breaking a baseball bat over his leg in frustration.
Yes, we’re obviously talking about Bo Jackson, and Perfect Team now knows Bo, as revealed in the latest edition of This Week in Perfect Team (TWiPT). Host Kris Jardine, who’s OOTP Developments’ Perfect Team Community Manager, introduced 6 new Perfect Team cards that honor multi-sport players.
New multi-sport player cards added this week
Gold Historical All-Star – 1989 Bo Jackson (LF; 80 OVR)
Bronze Historical All-Star – 2014 Jeff Samardzija (RHP Starter; 64 OVR)
Silver Unsung Heroes – 1996 Brian Jordan (RF; 70 OVR)

Meanwhile, in the latest episode of the OOTP Now podcast, host Rich Grisham was joined by OOTP fan and videogame industry analyst Mat Piscatella of The NPD Group, who talked about the San Diego Padres’ early season success and how he’s been playing OOTP 20. OOTP Developments’ Matt Arnold also stopped by to explain a little-known OOTP feature known as the Simulation Module, which produced OOTP 20’s MLB season prediction and has many options to handle all kinds of scenarios.
How’s your Perfect Team doing? Whether you’re headed for promotion or demotion, your team can probably use a few new cards to plug holes in your roster, so good luck ripping those packs!
