CBS SportsLine is using the DYNASTY League Baseball simulation to pre-play each game of the World Series duplicating the starting pitchers, lineups, weather and even the home plate umpire. You can view the first two games results (both of which were correctly predicted by DYNASTY League Baseball) and a preview of Game 3 at: http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/story/9751588
Now for the first time you can have your own pre-play of the 2006 World Series, Playoffs or even Greatest Teams bracket style tournament that you can play out yourself or with old or new friends live on-line. The four 2006 season ALCS and NLCS teams are now available via digital download as a free bonus when you purchase the new 2006 season CD or player cards.
There are numerous DYNASTY League Baseball historical seasons to choose from including the newly released 2006 season. You can also draft and trade as GM for the most realistic Fantasy Baseball experience where you get to actually play out your seasons games as Manager head to head live on-line.
This year marks the 21st Anniversary of Pursue the Pennant and DYNASTY League Baseball. The landmark Baseball simulation available in both board and computer versions started with the help of Milwaukee Brewers Bob McClure, Jim Gantner and Paul Molitor.
Upon its debut in 1985, Pursue the Pennant became the leader in realism in Baseball simulations by incorporating innovative features like detailed Ball Park effects, ratings for pitchers who were tough in pitching out of a jam, and many other subtle nuances of the game.
DYNASTY League Baseball and its predecessor Pursue the Pennant revolutionized Baseball simulation games by providing realistic aspects of Baseball being brought to the public consciousness by books like Bill James Baseball Abstract and Pete Palmer's The Hidden Game. DYNASTY League Baseball followed Pursue the Pennant, and has refined and even surpassed the original simulation in realism, playability and attractiveness.
Michael Bauman -- MILWAUKEE JOURNAL / MLB.COM -- "(Cieslinski) previously developed the board game Pursue the Pennant, which was an amazingly lifelike representation of baseball. Dynasty League Baseball, which is available as both a board game and computer game, is even better. Win or Lose this is a terrific game. Cieslinski has done what he sets out to do, which was to develop a game that somehow incorporates the multitude of nuances that baseball contains."
Greg Salvatore -- OFFICIAL ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS MAGAZINE
"DYNASTY League Baseball is, without contest, the most realistic baseball simulation on the market today."
Chuck Johnson -- USA TODAY
"If you are playing in Fenway Park, you can hit a ball into the screen above the Green Monster in left field for a home run. In Yankee Stadium, you can hit a ball into the monuments and document how many feet the ball traveled."
Phil Vettel -- CHICAGO TRIBUNE
"From the designer of Pursue the Pennant comes the perhaps the ultimate baseball simulation. You expect real life statistics to drive the game, and you certainly get them, but it appears that this game has thought of everything. There are statistics for each stadium (balls generally carry better in Wrigley Field than in Busch Stadium), player fatigue factors to consider -- even the weather is part of the game."
Andrew Lockett -- ESPN Outside the lines Producer
"I have received the 3rd edition charts and played my first game which I enjoyed greatly. I find your layout very easy to grasp and realistic. Your web page nailed it on the head with the quote from your friend Dave about not wanting magic and the need for transparency. I will be playing a greatest team tournament while I am on the road covering stories for ESPN. Congratulations on a great game and even finer service."
Dave Holland -- CFCY Radio, PEI CANADA
"I must say the game is truly the epitomy of all board baseball games. I find the game as realistic as you can get.ý
Jim Caple -- ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS DISPATCH / ESPN.COM
"...skillfully walks the line between realistic recreation and bogging things down with so many variables you would think Gene Mauch designed it."
Eric Compton -- NEW YORK NEWSDAY
"Everything that can happen in baseball can happen in DYNASTY"
Michael Bauman -- MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
"Is the most lifelike, most intriguing, most enjoyable baseball game yet devised... (it's) the baseball equivalent of Monopoly."
