Without doubt the weakest of the bunch, this features a strange side view of the ballpark with crude monochrome players. It looks bad, and it doesn't play particularly well either.

The novel pitching sequence features a split screen view; overhead on the left, 3-D behind- batter on the right. Timing the swing is easier watching the former, but you have to keep an eye on the latter to see if the pitch is unhittable. It's enough to make you go cross-eyed!

The fielding isn't any better with the small, single-screen field, and control often switching to a fielder you don't want- Even player drafting and a four-division league can't make this game a big hitter.
