Trivia

  • Sony’s first ever first party baseball game.
  • 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.
