Now baseball fans can snatch this award-winning line drive of a game for 35% off the original price starting on April 1st and going until midnight on April 7th. This means the digital download price is now reduced to $19.49 from the original $29.99– a savings of $10.50! Grab your copy while supplies last!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“This Season Opener Sale is really a home run for baseball fans. PureSim Baseball 2007 provides every bit of the excitement and strategy found in baseball and with incredible customization too!”

The new 1.71 update adds a new roster size option of 40, numerous simulation speed improvements and some AI and stat improvements. It also includes support for the new 2007 Lahman Database, allowing you to play with the latest real players and teams as well as historical ones.

PureSim Baseball 2007 uses an automatically-generated dream almanac containing thousands of pages of detailed stats on players and team histories. Directly integrated into the game, it uses standard HTML formatting which allows it to be published onto the web. The Lahman database is fully licensed and integrated into PureSim Baseball 2007, making it easier than ever to play with historical players and teams from 1900 to 2006! PureSim Baseball 2007 includes multiple levels of minors (A, AA, AAA), flexibility in allowing players to simulate any Major League season from 1900 to 2007, with 2008 support on the way. The game's unique player aging system, completely customizable parks and leagues, and the ability to edit any aspect of any detail found within the game all round out a sharper, quicker, and more intense baseball simulation.

PureSim Baseball 2007 also lets the slugger in you design your own teams and leagues, giving you the opportunity to field a real 'fantasy' team against any opponent in online or offline play. Your players, like your organization, will grow; their skills fluctuate, they age, and eventually, they retire. All the while you pull the purse strings and negotiate the hard contracts that will ensure your dynasty has the power it needs to stay on top.

Get more information on PureSim Baseball from its product page. The latest v1.71 update can be downloaded from the Matrix Games Downloads section and will update any version since 1.70b.
