it's gotta be Baseball Stars. My group loved staying up late at night and playing some hard nose ball...darn homerun hitters always seemed to get me strong pitchers in the end. :-°

MVP Baseball 2005 was probably one of my most favourite baseball games, as well. There was one that was for Sega, back in the day, that I also liked. Can't remember the name anymore though.

Did anybody have an Apple II or Commodore and play Micro League Baseball? It was a baseball simulator with historical teams. You didn't play the game, just managed it calling for what pitch to throw and what not. Pretty much like Baseball Mogul except that it came out in 1984 and you only could play a game at a time.

I had a Commodore but don't remember that one. Earliest baseball games I remember playing on the C64 were Hardball and Earl Weaver.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

No, that's not it... It was almost like Championship Manager if anyone has ever played that. My dad did some Apple II computer programming on the side back then and made a disk of a whole bunch of other teams. I think the main disk came with 25 or so historical teams.
