2015 Season Release in December!
2015 was a wild season in MLB, from the amazing turn-around of the Houston Astros and New York Mets to the World Series championship run by the Kansas City Royals. You'll soon be able to relive it all in Diamond Mind. Work on the 2015 season download is underway with a target release set for the usual mid-December date.

DMB News April 2015
2015 “Dynamic” Season Projection Available NOW!
Developed in conjunction with Dan Szymborski using his ZiPS projection system, the DMB 2015 Season Projection database is will include something new by being dynamic – we will update the player projections around the All-Star Break to reflect performance in the season to that point and then projected through the remainder of the season. At the end of the season, we update the projections again for the playoff teams.
If you purchase the DMB 2015 Dynamic Projection database, you will receive these updates free of charge as soon as the updates are ready.
You can purchase the DMB 2015 Dynamic Projection database in the online store for $29.95, which includes the initial Projection database plus the two free updates (mid-season and for the playoffs).
New Deluxe Past Seasons Available on April 30, 2015
The 1969 season is the most recent to get the Deluxe treatment – the DPS version of 1969 will be available on April 30, 2015. You can purchase the 1969 deluxe season in the online store for $24.95.
If you already own the Classic Past Season of 1969, you can upgrade to Deluxe for $10.00. Just email usto get started. Once we’ve verified your ownership of the 1969 CPS, we’ll send you a promotional code so you can purchase the Deluxe version at the upgrade price.
In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve got a new look! Earlier this year, we unveiled a new DMB website and store. Head over and check it out. It’s still a work in progress, so we’d appreciate your feedback. Please send any suggestions to DMB_Support@imaginesports.com.
Spring is in the air! Happy Opening Day from the Diamond Mind team!
DMB News March 2015
2 New All-Time Greatest Players Downloads Available Now!
Two new All-Time Greatest Players (AGP) databases are now available. Unlike DMB’s season downloads, the players in AGP are rated to reflect their career performance rather than that of a single season. Players with longer careers were rated based on their best series of peak seasons, while players with shorter careers were rated based on their entire careers. This effectively normalizes career length by removing the “penalty” of long careers, preventing the dilution of the statistical decline in later years of long-career stars. Each player’s statistics are then normalized* relative to the era and parks in which each played.
AGP2015 is available in two volumes:
All-time Greatest Players 2015 Volume 1: Pre-1969
This AGP database gives you a great way to play games using more than 2100 of the best players in baseball history that played before 1969. In addition, Volume 1 includes more than 100 of the greatest Negro Leagues Players, normalized to MLB standards. Volume 1 players are organized into 48 teams based on the real-life franchises they were most closely affiliated with during their peak periods.
All-time Greatest Players 2015 Volume 2: Post-1969
The AGP 2015 Volume 2 database gives you a great way to play games using more than 2100 of the best players in baseball history who played in 1969 and after. In addition, Volume 2 includes more than 20 of the greatest Nippon Professional Baseball players from Japan, normalized to MLB standards. Volume 2 players are organized into 48 teams based on the real-life franchises they were most closely affiliated with during their peak periods.
Each volume is available for $29.95. Want both volumes? Buy the complete AGP2015 two-volume set for $49.95, a $10 discount.
If you are an owner of the AGP2006 database, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a 25% discount code on either or both AGP2015 Volumes (discount cannot be used in combination with the $10 discount described above).
