The 2022 Season Database was released December 20th, 2022
Welcome to Diamond Mind Baseball!
The 2022 Annual Season Season Database contains everything you need to play games using teams and players from the 2022 season -- a full set of ratings and statistics for every player who appeared in the big leagues this 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.
Beginning in 2022, MLB introduced a new Starting Pitcher as Designated Hitter rule -- commonly known as the "Ohtani rule". This rule allows a team to choose the same player as both the starting pitcher and designated hitter (DH) and then make in-game substitutions as if there are two different players in the lineup.
If you have the version 12a patch installed, this new rule can be set with the "Starting pitcher as DH" option in your League or Organization's Rules/options page and will be enabled by default for the 2022 season.
Therefore, it is necessary to have the version 12a patch installed to be able to play the 2022 season and take advantage of this new rule.
** Important Note ** This season database is a companion product for the Diamond Mind Baseball game software. 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 >>
