Obviously, there are improvements to be made and things to refine with The Show, but I remember how excited I was to finally get this game (I think I was 9 by the time I was lucky enough to get my hands on it). There were nine players on defense! And it talked!

WHY HASN'T DAVE RIGHETTI GONE DIAMOND YET?

The original RBI Baseball on NES was video game gold! Buddies and I used to play that all the time!! George Bell and Jose Canseco were beasts!!

Anyone remember Calecovision baseball? Or the three (I think it was three) man defensive unit that moved in unison on the Atari 2600?

Back when I had to walk uphill in the snow both ways just to play a baseball video game, it never occurred to me that we’d one day be complaining about unrealistic sinkers, nerfed exit velocity and bad launch angles… you kids don’t know how good you have it.

St Louis was the fastest team on that game.

My Dad had a couple of old games that I played when I was younger. Strat-o-matic, electronic baseball, and this beauty that I haven't seen since I was a little kid:

I thought you were taking about this gem.

I had this and loved it. Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell were good in it. That's coming from a real deal Yank fan at that. The fastballs used to blink like crazy. Wow talk about a blast from the past. Great post brother.

You could tell that second hit didn’t even touch the pci

Agreed but Sports Talk Baseball on the Genesis was heavier gold. RBI 3 was my fav if we are talking that franchise.

My first was on the Atari vcs......never played the intellivision....apart from years later on emulator....this game was pretty good for its day.....makes me laugh though people mention getting bad outcomes on here from p/p hits being caught etc.....I swear those 8bit games you wouldn’t barely get a hit and the cpu would hit homeruns pretty much every AB ....might have been because I was a kid but still lol

SDS

Yes My first baseball game was blips on a black screen Atari I think
