Description from the packaging.

The best-selling baseball game of all-time just got better.

It's a whole new ballgame.

Hardball II retains the all-star qualities of the original. Effortless gameplay. Authentic graphics. Unparalleled realism. But now there's more. Much more.

More features and options. More choices, playability and true-to-ballplayer animation. Even more major league ballparks. Scout around and compare. You'll find that Hardball II isn't just the best computer baseball game on the market. It's in a league by itself.

Statistics don't tell the whole story.
Better than the morning box scores. Hardball II updates and stores stats in virtually every conceivable category. Stats change from at-bat to at-bat, from game to game. Plus there are other new features, like pick offs, league play, a team editor- even fielding errors. Whew.

More frames of animation means more realism.
Feel the heat of a 90 mph fastball. With increased frames of animation, each pitch, each play, is major league smooth. More choices means the pitcher can come to the plate or attempt to pick the runner off at second. Caught leading? Try to stay alive in a rundown.

Shift the infield and outfield according to each hitter.
The centerfield view offers a scout's insight as to the hitter's tendencies. Will you play at normal depth, guard the lines or put on a custom shift? Remember, the batter has options as well. He may go to right, bunt or drill it over your head.

Seven different stadiums. Five different views.
Step on the turf of familiar big league ballparks. Catch the game from five network TV field perspectives: upper deck overview, behind the pitcher, behind the plate or left and right infield views. The "Game Of The Week" crew would be proud.

TV Instant Replay feature.
Want to start a bench clearing brawl? Then show your opponent that triple you just belted, one more time, with the Instant Replay feature. You can pause it, play it at normal speed, slow motion or- if you really want to rub it in- frame-by-frame.

Pull-down menus make managing easy.
A winning manager pushes all the right buttons. Pencil in a starting line-up based on who's going good. And if they start going bad? Pull the starters and pinch hit. Feel like trading all of these bums? Go ahead. You can build your very own dream team with the team editor feature.
