Description from the packaging.
"One of a handful of new computer programs that I think finally deliver on the computer industry's much-ballyhooed promise to produce 'multimedia' programs... especially well done." - The Wall Street Journal
"More than just a collection of statistics, this imaginative CD-ROM brings baseball history alive..." - Mac User
- Mel Allen brings you the game's greatest moments.
- Hear the voices, relive the stats, play the game.
Where were you in 1951, when Bobby Thomson slugged the home run that tore the heart out of Brooklyn? Or in 1969, when the miracle Mets capped the most amazing turnaround in baseball history? How about 1988, when Kirk Gibson made a Hollywood dream come true?
Grab some Cracker Jacks and check out Baseball's Greatest Hits, the next best thing to being there. Watch historic video clips, like Hank Aaron's 715th home run. Listen in a 75 Hall of Famers- including Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, and Jackie Robinson- talk baseball. Hear Mel Allen's mellifluous introductions to each event and enjoy the comments of the nation's greatest sports columnists.
This updated version brings you right up to Joe Carter's heart-stopping home run that clinched the 1993 World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays. Current stats on major players are in here, along with over six hours of archival audio, color photographs, and rediscovered audio clips such as Babe Ruth's legendary call of his own shot in 1932. Hardcore fans will appreciate box scores, a baseball timeline, stadium pictures, team histories, player profiles, and the chance to test their knowledge in a challenging trivia game. Play Ball!
