SEGA of America, Inc. announced that today is "opening day" for MLB Manager Online, its free-to-play, browser-based, baseball game-available at mlbmanageronline.com -in which players compete in real online baseball leagues.
Players will compete in online league play with a fantasy team based on active Major League players-over 900 players representing all 30 teams. Users will scout, trade, train, and manage their professional squads as they compete for a championship. Through the MLB Manager Online community users will be able to perfect their teams, set up trades, and talk baseball with in-game chat features.
MLB Manager Online is designed for year-round competition in exhibition, league and tournament play while letting users focus on managing their teams. League play consists of multiple 16-team divisions competing in a full-season of games in 10-day tournaments. At the end of each season, the best teams from each division move on to the post-season where they will compete for a championship.
After the post-season is over, a new season begins and users can compete all over again.
Fully licensed by MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM), the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), MLB Manager Online can be enjoyed by seasoned veterans and rookies alike.
"We at SEGA wanted to create an enjoyable and engaging game for both hardcore fantasy baseball fans, as well as baseball enthusiasts who want a quick and easy way to enjoy baseball, regardless of the time of year," said Haruki Satomi, VP of Digital Business of SEGA of America. "MLB Manager Online offers a fun and unique multiplayer online baseball experience without being tied down to daily stats necessary for traditional fantasy sports games."
