Description from the packaging.

The National Pastime has never looked better. Championship Baseball is the most complete baseball simulation available-everything else is minor league material.

Championship Baseball has it all. You begin by drafting a team. Look over the talent pool. You'll need starting pitchers, relievers, infielders, outfielders - even utility players for bench strength. Pitchers are rated on three separate skill levels; all other players have four. Consider each player's talents carefully before putting them on your team. Don't just go with heavy hitters - sometimes their defensive ability leaves something to be desired.

Once you've selected your team, set your batting order. (Be careful not to have your weakest hitter batting cleanup). Then choose which of the four divisions suits you, and play ball!

Championship Baseball gives you more options. You may want to start with some batting practice to master the fine art of hitting a screwball. Then, challenge a friend or the computer to nine innings of intense action. When you're ready, pick your team and enter the 4-division, 24-team race for the pennant!

You control all the action - pitching, hitting, catching, outfield relays, base running, even sliding under tags. All in the most realistic baseball simulation you can find. Grab your bat and glove and take on the challenge of Championship Baseball!

  • Player perspective graphics put you at the plate where you belong.
  • Split screen gives you first person perspective and the total field view.
  • Select your starting lineup and reserves from the talent pool, and determine the batting order that will have the best chance against your opponent.
