For the third consecutive year, Out of the Park Baseball will unveil their highly-anticipated MLB postseason predictions LIVE on MLB Network! This Sunday night at 9 PM ET on the MLB Network Postseason Preview show, Out of the Park Baseball will go for an unprecedented third straight correct World Series winner prediction. The predictions are based on running 1000 simulations of the postseason with the most up to date rosters, pitching rotations, injuries, and ballpark factors.
You read that correctly by the way – Out of the Park Baseball has correctly predicted the World Series winner each of the past two years they have unveiled these simulation results on MLB Network. In 2017, they accurately projected the Houston Astros to claim the World Series title. In 2018, they nailed not only the Boston Red Sox as the champions, but the World Series matchup itself between the Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“We are excited to be back with our great partners at MLB Network this fall as we prepare to go three-for-three with our predictions,” said OOTP CMO Rich Grisham. “We believe our simulation engine is the best in the world, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it. Nothing can ever completely account for the infinite possibilities of the Major League Baseball postseason, but our formula of running 1000 simulations with our engine and distilling the aggregate results is the closest anyone can ever get.”
In addition to the live unveiling on Sunday night at 9 PM ET on MLB Network, the Out of the Park Baseball crew will dive deeper into those predictions live at 10 PM ET on their Twitch channel. OOTP Community and Content Developer Kris Jardine will be joined by Grisham to pore over the bracket, compare and contrast the results, and chat with fans live.
“We have the best community in the world of video games, and we like to get in there with them and go over everything,” said Jardine. “This will be a lot of fun to see what everyone thinks about our simulation. I’m looking forward to the conversation!”
