Description

Step up to the plate for the second iteration of EA Sports' MVP Baseball. You can sim, manage, or play your way through 120 years of your MLB, AAA and AA franchise. Manage and play as all three teams - develop your farm and win the World Series - even the Tigers have a chance! Two mini-modes let you play head to head with friends or the CPU to test your batting and pitching skills. You can also play in classic fields using classic players like Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson. Hundreds of uniforms to choose from and thousands of animations to bring the players to life.

Trivia

Contrary to most EA sports games, MVP Baseball is actually quite fan-mod friendly. There are many mods out there from fans who wish to tweak the simulation model that will allow players to progress over their entire CAREER, not just a season or two. You can now actually notice how the players improve a bit over time, they gain skill and lose a bit of strength, and so on. There are also plenty of fantasy teams, historical teams, and much more as mods.
