The only game in town through the embryonic years of 8-bit personal computing, SSI Computer Baseball delivers the basics and introduced many would-be managers and general managers to the world of hardball simulation. The software appears dated when compared to games released in the mid-to-late Eighties, although those comparisons can be tempered by the fact that those games derived from this highly competent package. Despite my overall rating, I highly recommend sampling Computer Baseball if for no other reason than to compete against Casey in the grand-daddy of all baseball sims.

CB does a good job in the area of compiling stats and allowing owners to create their own teams. If you have the available stats you can create any team or league you wish, from your son's Little League squad to the 1985 All-Star game. However, to trade players or draft players (from existing teams) you must re-enter the stats for each player. It is not possible to simply tell the program to trade Dave Parker to Boston. A nice touch for any sports game is the option to have the computer play the role of opposing manager. CB fills this requirement but it must be pointed out that "Casey" is not exactly the Earl Weaver of managers. The game program and player stats simply take up too much of the available 48/64K to permit really extensive artificial intelligence.
