1953 Deluxe Past Season with transactions and lineups available now!

Welcome to the 1953 Deluxe Past Season from Diamond Mind Baseball. An exciting year from the professionals, take your game to the next level and grab the 1953 season. This is the year where Roberts and Spahn put up 23 wins apiece, but it ís the team from the Bronx that again grabs the headlines in October. Five in a row now for the Yanks, once again over Brooklyn.


The 1953 Deluxe Past Season database contains everything you need to play games using teams and players from the 1953 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 800 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 1953 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 1953 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.

League Ownership Compliance Offer

Updated: December 28, 2022

In order to encourage draft leagues to make sure that all of their members own the required Diamond Mind software, we are offering a free gift to all verified leagues. 

Here is how it works:

Once all league members have confirmed that they have bought the required software for the season to come, the League commissioner sends the following information to Diamond Mind BEFORE the league's virtual season begins.

  • Full name of the league
  • Size of the league (total number of teams)
  • Anticipated start date and end date for the league
  • Season database that your season is based on
  • Diamond Mind Baseball game version
  • Full name, email address and order number for the season database purchase by each league member

To avoid violating DMB's licensing agreement, all members should own the required software before receiving a copy of the league database.

If we are able to verify that all members have bought both the game and season software directly from Diamond Mind*, we will award the winner of the league with an e-gift card in an amount equal to the cost of the season being used.  For example, if the league is based on the 2022 season, the e-gift card value will be equal to the original purchase price of $29.95.

Leagues that are based on the most recent season must submit their league and be verified before October 1st, 2023 to be eligible for the free e-gift card.

Participation is open to all DMB leagues and is not limited to leagues that use the most recent season database.

League commissioners can send their league information for verification to dmb_info@imaginesports.com.

Is your league on the list for the year 2023?

 Ownership Compliant Leagues for past years:

2022 | 2021 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016


Please note:

In most cases, we can verify the seasons that were bought directly from Diamond Mind since the company was started in September 1995. However, we are unable to verify any items that may have been bought before that time or from other sources.

For example, Pursue the Pennant was a separate company with its own customer and order records that no longer exist and therefore we are unable to verify seasons sold by Pursue the Pennant.

In the case of a disagreement between our records and a league's submitted information, confirmation of ownership will be determined solely by Diamond Mind's customer database records.
