Description from the packaging.

Kenny Lofton makes a leaping catch against the ivy-covered wall in Wrigley Field to rob Sammy Sosa of an extra base hit.

Ken Griffey, Jr. crushes a hanging curve for a towering home run off the facade in Yankee Stadium. TV highlights from Major League Baseball action? No, it's Microsoft Baseball 3D- the game that captures all the thrills of Major League Baseball. Real players, real ballparks, and real game situations- from Greg Maddux's change-up to Barry Bonds' home run trot.

Never play the same game twice.
Factors like wind velocity, artificial turf, ball spin, and player stats affect gameplay. The result? Unlimited outcomes and a game as real as baseball itself.

Real sights. Real sounds. Real excitement.
3-D polygonal players so detailed you'll recognize the faces and idiosyncrasies of your favorite stars. Hear the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the umpires' calls, and lively play-by-play in 3D sound.

The thinking fan's game.
Advanced AI means that each player on the field reacts as he would in a game. When Kenny Lofton leads of an inning with a walk, he'll consider the score, and catcher's arm, and the pitcher's motion before stealing second.
