Trivia

  • Sony’s first ever first party baseball game, and it just so happens to be the only ‘full fledged’ baseball simulation game in the current gaming market. Looks like the Pennant Race never ended!
  • Dropped the Pennant Race moniker going forward, becoming just MLB until late in its life when it became “MLB: The Show”.
  • The original magazine ads for the game show it as a long box release – this never came to fruition as it was released in jewel case form long after the long boxes were abandoned.
