the popular team sport of Baseball now comes to your Pc curtasy of Jim Kitchin. When your team's up to bat, you must press the control key when the sound of the ball being thrown is three quarters of the way across to the right speaker. Depending upon how you do you'll either score bases or give the batter an unpleasant injury! various types of throws with different sound effects and speeds makes scoring bases quite a tricky business.
When your up to pitch, use the number keys to choose both the pitcher, and the type of ball he/she will throw. Strategical choice and your team managing skills here is the key.
Sinse the game uses Microsoft Sapi, many things are editable, you can name your own teams, and even eddit the appropriate text files for player names, ---- so if you've always wanted to see Luke Skywalker of the Rebellion up to bat against Darth Vader of the empire, ---- now's your chance!
In typical Baseball style, commercials will play after each inning, ---- and you might even catch a certain wellknown springfield resident glugging down a can of Duff while watching the game.
For anyone (probably living outside the us), not familiar with the sport of Baseball, the game also has a baseball rules file which may be read by Sapi before you begin, and there's even a separate batting practice program so that you can get your hand in before the big game.
