    We are happy to announce we will be giving full support for the first time for PS4's MLB 16 : The Show.

    We will be using the same league technology that we created for the LGUHL (LG Hut league) where anyone can signup, pick any team and accept or make blind challenges. From this we will create standings, basic stats and will support any number of players, as well as no set schedule and a system where people can come and go, and play as much or as little as they want without destroying part of the league.

    We fully intend to have OCR support to get the basic stats (more to come on this, we need to see how the actual game displays the box score).

    Official rules will be announced after we find and name our commish staff (we will let them make these decisions) but we intend to use MLB's diamond dynasty mode where you can build your own custom teams, and challenge others using our match making system.

    More info to come over the coming days

    Awesome to hear! I'm looking forward to playing in it once it starts. I'd be interested in helping the league progress as a staff to whoever becomes the Commish.

    Also, with the Online Franchise game mode in MLB The Show, would it almost be simpler doing a league through that if there aren't a significant amount of signups? In the past I've run a league off of that and it worked fairly well. There were advances at certain points which can be set automatically or manually done at a decided upon date.

    I agree. Using the online franchise feature would be ideal to use for leagues.

    This is great! I think you should stick with Diamond Dynasty as the mode. I've seen some others comment saying they would rather have online franchise but I think DD would work best. Can't wait!

    Online franchise is more in depth, having minor leaguers develop, make trades, players retire, sign free agents.

    While yes 29 others can play in one league, there are other ways to ensure a league can be created to suit all levels of user gameplay.

    Now a vs league could be successful and I think it would be. But having teams play using the same team (always facing Kershaw or Scherzer, etc) would get old, quick. There is ways to make that work, same as DD or a vs tournament, etc.

    Again open to discussing my ideas over PM.

    Why not have the best of both worlds and do both. Have a 1 or 2 committed leagues and than have the dd league. Just a option

    I'm 100% interested. Love this game and the only one I own for PS4. Would be willing to work on the staff as well to assist.

    That kid is our future bud! Gotta find a way to move Howard. Maybe we'll get lucky and he starts off hot and we can move him to the AL!
