While not as disappointing to its sport as FPS: Football Pro '97 was, TLRB 4 is still an uninspired product, which I can't in good faith recommend to anyone except for those who want a balance of arcade and statistics unless they hate the Triple Play-action oriented games, own no previous edition of this game, and have a very fast machine.
GameSpot (Aug 01, 1997)
Even with its few strong points (simulation, management), this product is far from a winner. There are already five traditional computer baseball games on the market this year, and Tony La Russa Baseball 4 is the worst of the lot.

The LA RUSSA series has not aged well, despite its prominence in the market for several years. Bugs in scoring decisions reported in earlier versions still appear here. The graphics display, state-of-the-art with LA RUSSA 3, is slow and behind the times. The extra modules, which should provide a lot of entertainment value for relatively little programming complexity, still don't work properly. If you own any version of LA RUSSA baseball created in the last three years, you won't find this much of an upgrade. It's a shame, because with so many mediocre titles out there, this should have bee the time for a mature product to shine. LA RUSSA 4 brings the series close to a demotion to the minor leagues.

Overall, Tony La Russa Baseball 4 is a disastrous arcade game with an excellent simulation engine. If you’re new to the series, and have a blazing fast machine, you might want to try this version (or maybe check out La Russa 3: 1996 Edition in the bargain bin). However, for longtime fans, it adds little and takes away a lot from previous versions of the game.
