Eh. You can't even turn a triple play in this game. There were 5 sequels for this in Japan for the Pc-engine- all better than this one.

Not the best game. I'd rather have Super Baseball Simulator 1.000 on SNES. If you want some good TG sports games, wait for TV Sports Football and World Court Tennis. The tennis game had an RPG element to it, which was flat out awesome.

Are you supposed to be able to turn frequent triple plays? I LOVE this game probably because it's so simple. It would be nice to see Baseball Stars 2 and Super Baseball Simulator released too.

Have this one for my TurboGrafx. My best friend and I used to rent it on occasion. It got us to saying "The Stars" in the same way that the guys on Saturday Night Live said, "The Bears." If you know the skit, you know what I'm talking about.

I like how the ball zooms in and you can see the stitching and writing on it when you hit a high pop fly or a big home run. Nice graphical touch. Also think it's interesting when you score a run your teammates are hanging out of your dugout waving flags... yeah, that happens in real life... but then, I've never watched baseball in Japan.
