So far we have held 4 tournaments using Out Of The Park 19 and they have been so fun to play. Can't recommend this game enough as a great way to play baseballs past, present, and future. We started out tournament replays in the 1990's and as you can see from the winners below just like baseball anybody can beat anybody in a given series. We are now up to 1994 which will be an exciting tourney for sure. Tournament Results 1990 Tournament Champion - #11 Texas Rangers 1991 Tournament Champion - #9 St. Louis Cardinals 1992 Tournament Champion - #1 Atlanta Braves 1993 Tournament Champion - #6 Montreal Expos 1994 Tournament Champion - ???
The Texas Rangers win the 1990 Tournament as an 11 seed beating the Dodgers 4 games to 2. The Dodgers win the first 2 games in LA but the Rangers come back behind some great pitching from Nolan Ryan and Bobby Witt in games 5 and 6. Congrats Texas Rangers! Recaps below.
Another great Final Four series as the Rangers beat the Blue Jays in 7 games. Ageless Nolan Ryan picks up 2 wins and Kevin Brown wins Game 7 for the Rangers. The Rangers will move on to face the Dodgers in the Finals. Rangers made it to the Finals in the 1993 Tournament as well. Recaps below.
Man these Out Of The Park Tournaments have been fun [pick it up if you haven't already :)]. The Angels jump out to a 3-1 series lead only to have the Dodgers storm back and take the series 4-3. Veteran Fernando Valenzuela with the big Game 7 victory. Lance Parrish for the Angels hits 5 homers in the losing effort. Dodgers move on to the Finals. Recaps below.
