Sports Mogul fans,

It's been a long time since the last "Sports Mogul Update" -- we have a few things to announce, so I'll get right to it:

1. BASEBALL MOGUL 2005

If you've been checking the web site, you already know that Baseball Mogul 2005 is available. Otherwise, please swing by and check it out.

This year's version features:
(1) NEW minor league draft
(2) NEW transaction log -- records trades, draft picks, contracts, injuries, hitting streaks, awards and much more for every player
(3) Updated rosters and stats
(4) Many AI and interface improvements

Here are some useful links:

Currently the game is only available for sale by download. The CD-ROM version will be available within the next few weeks.

2. BASEBALL MOGUL FEATURED IN MIDWAY'S MLB SLUGFEST

As some of you know, we were hired to integrate the Baseball Mogul engine into "MLB Slugfest: Loaded", Midway's recently-released baseball game for PS2 and Xbox: http://sports.ign.com/articles/493/493726p1.html

I particularly like the quote that "acquiring Baseball Mogul for your franchise is like adding A-Rod to your lineup" (although I STILL hate the Yankees). We also put some effort into making the gameplay more realistic -- so please send me your feedback about Slugfest if you get a chance to play it.

In an interesting turn of events, the launch of "MLB Slugfest: Loaded" means that Sports Mogul Inc. is moving back to New England. We're tired of rooting for the Cubs because they always break your heart -- so we're heading back to Red Sox Nation. If you know anyone who's interested in buying a house on the Northside of Chicago, please send them this link: http://www.dreslough.com/house

3. BASEBALL MOGUL ONLINE AND FOOTBALL MOGUL 2005

Finally, we are hard at work on Baseball Mogul Online and Football Mogul Online. In particular, we are updating the code and rosters in Mogul Online to match Baseball Mogul 2005 as closely as possible. After that, we are planning to have Football Mogul 2005 available for sale before the NFL season. I'll keep you updated as things progress on these two games.

Thanks for your time. And thanks again for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Clay
