Platinum Series Baseball’s player cards are the heart of the game. They make the game fast pace and easy to play while maintaining an incredible level of baseball authenticity and statistical accuracy. This balance of gameplay and realism is achieved by Platinum Series Baseball’s comprehensive player ratings, which are included on each player’s card. Each player card has numerous ratings, including range, speed, arm strength, power, fatigue, fielding, jumping, bunting, # DL days, and more. Even each ballpark has unique attributes: varying outfield fence distances and heights, different infield and outfield types, different foul territory sizes and even unique effects on certain types of plays.
Platinum Series Baseball is easy to set up and get started. Each manager selects there team, making your starting pitcher, lineup and batting order, even determining time of day and the weather on game day.
The offensive manager rolls the dice for the batters and the defensive manager should roll for the fielders when applicable. The decisions of the manager and the luck of the roll will always affect the outcome.
Here’s how to play:
Everything from clutch Home-runs to 4-6-3 Double Plays! Each player’s odds to achieve a more desirable outcome are based off their stats on the Player Card. Our Player Packs will be available to purchase with random players that include at least one player for all fielding positions with a few extra pitchers. This way you can play right away and continue to build your ultimate team, as well as giving you an opportunity to exchange Player Cards with friends to get your favorite players!
Build Your Team with Player Packs
Platinum Series Baseball is enhanced with the edition of player packs. Each player pack includes 12 random players, with at least 1 player for every position to give you a full team in each pack. Grab a wax box and get 24 Player Packs. We plan to release updated Player Packs every season. Our first edition player packs were created using 2014 player stats.
