2022 ZiPS Projections Database now available! (Updated)

For 2022, we have again partnered with Dan Szymborski to bring you our projections database featuring stats and ratings generated by Dan's highly regarded ZiPS projection system.

The 2022 Projection Season database includes updated rosters that incorporate off-season player moves; the new schedule; projected batting and pitching stats for more than 3000 players, including many top prospects; and manager profiles set up with rotations, lineups, and depth charts that represent our assessment of how the players will be used during the season.

The 2022 Projection Season database is priced at $24.95 and is available in version 12 format only. This means it can be installed with Diamond Mind Baseball: Version 12 but cannot be used with any other earlier version of the game.

Sorry we're late. We realize that the projections database is being released later than usual this year so as a thank you for your patience we are offering a free gift with each order.

For a limited time*, customers who buy the 2022 Projection Season database can receive a free e-gift card of equal value ($24.95). Please contact us at dmb_info@imaginesports.com to request your e-gift card after you have placed your order. The e-gift card does not expire and can be used for any future purchase at the Diamond Mind online store.

Postseason Teams. All customers who buy the 2022 Projection Season database before October 1st, 2022 will receive the 2022 Postseason Teams database for no extra charge in early October.

Ballparks. We have added a new DMB style ballpark diagram for the 2022 season: Oriole Park at Camden Yards (updated in 2022). This image file is available as a free download from our Park Images page.

* Free e-gift card offer ends July 31, 2022.


We have updated our master copy of the 2022 ZiPS Projections Season database to correct the schedule.

To check if your copy of the 2022 ZiPS Projections Season database is up to date, have a look in the Notes tab of the Organizer window with your installed copy of the 2022 projections season as the active database. If the date of the "2022 Updates" note is 6/15/2022 or later then you have the most up to date version.

Registered owners of the 2022 ZiPS Projections Season database can request a new installation file that includes these updates by contacting DMB support at dmb_info@imaginesports.com

2021 Postseason Teams database is now available!


 

The 2021 Postseason Teams database includes all of the rosters, stats, ratings, manager profiles, park factors and other details that you need to play along with the 2021 MLB Playoffs. This database is provided free of charge for customers that previously bought the 2021 Projection Season database.

For this release, all players have been updated with their actual regular season stats (as of the end of play on Friday, October 1, 2021) and the player ratings have been carried over from the 2021 projections database. In most cases, the 26-man rosters are our best guess since most teams had not announced their playoff rosters at the time of release.

This database includes the 10 teams that qualified for the 2021 MLB postseason with the Wild Card round matchups and schedule set.

From the American League: Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, Houston Astros, New York Yankees, and Tampa Bay Rays.

From the National League: Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee Brewers, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.

Here's your chance to manage all these teams in postseason play to determine the 2021 World Series Champion!


If you have already purchased the 2021 ZiPS Projection Season, you should be receiving an email notifying you that an update is available that includes the link to download the postseason teams file. Remember to check your spam/junk folder, but if you do not receive the update email, contact us at dmb_info@imaginesports.com to request your copy.

The 2021 Postseason Teams set can also be purchased separately for $9.95.

Note: This season database is a companion product for the Diamond Mind Baseball version 12 game. To use this database, you must also have Diamond Mind Baseball version 12. The game software provides you with all of the tools you need to play simulated games, make roster moves, produce dozens of statistical reports, generate league schedules, and more.
