1957 Deluxe Past Season with transactions and lineups available now!

Ready to experience the season of the decade? Diamond Mind's 1957 Deluxe Past Season has Spahn, Buhl, Burdette, Aaron, Mathews. It's the Braves over the Yanks in seven, for the first time since 1948 a team from outside New York wins the title. Grab this season now!


The 1957 Deluxe Past Season database contains everything you need to play games using teams and players from the 1957 season -- a full set of ratings and statistics for every player who appeared in the big leagues that year, plus team rosters, manager profiles, ballpark ratings and league schedules. Statistics include official batting, pitching and fielding totals with left/right splits for all batters and pitchers.

More than just an update to the original Classic Past Season database, this "deluxed" edition has been recreated from an empty file as a completely new database using new tools and all of the latest statistical data from the most up-to-date online sources.

Database contents:

  • basic player facts: names, batting and throwing hands, birthdates
  • official batting and pitching statistics, including left/right splits
  • fielding statistics by position
  • games started at each position against left- and right-handed pitchers
  • thousands of player ratings that you can see: injury, bunting, range, running, throwing, and so on
  • thousands more player ratings that you can't see: the event tables and pitch-by-pitch ratings that make the game produce accurate results
  • opening day rosters for every team, plus nearly 1000 real-life transactions
  • manager profiles for every team, including starting rotations, bullpen roles, saved lineups, depth charts, manager and player tendencies
  • ballpark data, including dimensions, park factors, and weather ratings
  • the original (as-scheduled) and as-played schedules for the season
  • real-life starting lineups for every game played this season

The 1957 Deluxe Past 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.

Customers who have previously bought Diamond Mind's 1957 Classic Past Season database are eligible to buy this upgraded edition for the discounted price of $10. Send an email to dmb_info@imaginesports.com to request your discount promotion code.

Version 12 and the 2020 Season are Here!

Diamond Mind Baseball: Version 12

We are very excited to announce that Diamond Mind Baseball: Version 12 is now available!

Along with many other improvements, this new version includes full support for all of the latest MLB rule changes so that you can continue to enjoy the most accurate strategy-oriented baseball game with seasons from the past, present and into the future.

Visit our Version 12 Enhancements page to see all the changes.


Here's what you need to know:

Upgrade discount. Customers who have bought a previous version of the game are eligible to receive a discount of $5 off the regular price of $29.95 when buying the version 12 game. Enter the shopping code UPGRADE on the checkout page to apply the discount.

Backward compatibility. As with all of our past upgrades, version 12 will automatically convert databases from prior formats (as far back as version 8) to the latest, thereby preserving your investment in Diamond Mind seasons.

Version 11 is not going away. We will continue to support version 11, and we'll produce new season databases in version 11 format until demand for that format drops to a very low level.


2020 Annual Season Database

The 2020 Annual Season Database is packed with information, including everything you need to play games using teams and players from the 2020 season -- a full set of ratings and statistics for every player who appeared in the big leagues this year; full team rosters; manager profiles; updated ballpark ratings; a full set of real-life transactions and game-by-game lineups for season replays; and three schedules, the original 162-game (as-scheduled) schedule and two 60-game (as-scheduled and as-played) schedules reflecting the pandemic shortened season. Statistics include official batting, pitching and fielding totals with left/right splits for all batters and pitchers.

This year we are making available a second special edition of the 2020 season database to accommodate draft league play. This database contains all the same information as the regular edition but will have the player stats pro-rated for a 162-game season.

You can choose your preferred edition when you place your order. If you would like a copy of both editions of the 2020 season database, you can contact us at dmb_info@imaginesports.com to request a free copy of the alternative edition by email.
