There are a few more minor problems with BB Pro '98 - the Braves' Turner Field isn't included, and there's no way to set up two leagues with three divisions of five teams each to reflect the realignment of MLB teams after the arrival of next year's expansion teams - but they pretty much pale in comparison to all the things the game has to offer. For hard-core baseball fans, Baseball Pro '98 dishes up everything except World Series tickets.

So, what's the verdict? Simply this: if you love stats and the idea of controlling every aspect of your team as a GM / Owner / Manager, you'll love this game. If you want the thrill of hitting home runs and running around the bases yourself, pick up Triple Play '98. If you want both, this will satisfy most of one, and a little of the other.

Um es vorwegzunehmen: Freunde des Schlagsports werden diesmal kaum ein Feature vermissen, an alles wurde gedacht. Sämtliche Major League-Teams messen sich in sämtlichen Original-Stadien, dem Team-Management sind kaum Grenzen gesetzt, Wetteränderungen wirken sich auf die Spiele aus, und sogar ein Editor wird gleich mitgeliefert. Was besonders Europäer freuen dürfte: Auch an weniger bewanderte Ballfetischisten wurde gedacht. Die Spieler-Kontrolle läßt sich in drei Schwierigkeitsgraden abstufen. Schade nur, daß die farb- und detailarme Grafik den Gesamteindruck etwas trübt. Baseball-Fans kann die zweitbeste Simulation nach Hardball 6 dennoch ans Herz gelegt werden.

For those that are out there looking to take control over the arcade portion of a baseball simulation (hitting, pitching, fielding) then FPS: Baseball Pro ’98 might not be your best bet. On the other side, for those out there that want the best all around statistical tracking/managing baseball simulation, then you should not look much further than FPS: Baseball Pro ’98. This summer will see many new additions to some already successful simulations hit the shelves and FPS: Baseball Pro ’98 has a leg up on them already!

Eigentlich ist Baseball ein ziemlich umkompliziertes und auch etwas ödes Spiel. Trotzdem haben es über die Jahre hinweg wieder SImulationen geschafft, Spannung zu erzeugen. Leider trifft dies nur teilweise auf DSF Baseball Pro 98 zu.

More than a decade ago, with less technology and less powerful computers, EARL WEAVER BASEBALL had many of BASEBALL PRO '98s features and loads more fun. That's why it's in this magazine's Hall of Fame. FRONT PAGE SPORTS: BASEBALL PRO '98 is getting better, but it has a long way to fill EARL's shoes.
