Had this back in the day. Still some of the best music included in a video game. Has the same pace of watching on TV, so it's definitely for the hardcore baseball fan.

Tom 2020-11-21 1 point does NOT have Hardball 5 for sale. I am on their website right now, and I clicked the magnifying glass icon to do a search. I first did a search for Hardball 5, the result was this:

No results found
Try adjusting the terms of your search, you can search by game titles, publishers, and developers.

So then I tried to search for Hardball. Same thing, No results found

Soooo if it isn't here for download, and doesn't have it up for sale, how do I get this game?? Oh I guess I can't, can I? Because you people are too spooked by crybabies claiming the game is up for download and shouldn't be.

Again, does NOT have this game Hardball 5 for sale on their website, and any search on for the word, hardball, Hardball, HardBall, or Hard Ball, gives no results found. If it isn't up for sale, it's abandonware. Sooooo.....

Will it work on Windows 10? I hope so, I sure miss playing it!

Don't need DOS box. Just download the virtual box emulator from Oracle and install MS-DOS 6.22.

For those having trouble getting games to work with dosbox might I suggest downloading dosblaster in cojuction. it's fairly straight forward and if a game is missing a file you will be told so when you try to play it. Quite a few here I have found missing needed files to play.
Dosblaster works with all windows even 10 tech preview (which I just received for evaluation.
Dos blaster automatically mounts a drive and you don't need to unzip any games to play. It brings up a list and you just click the files until you find the one that plays. There are 2 file types that usually playable. either .exe or .bat

Damn, I wish I could play this game. I spent so many hours on it back in the old days. Alas, doesn't work on Win 7 with DosBOX

Absolutely the greatest baseball game ever! I can't run it in Windows 7 either. Can't get the Dos sim to download either. Been trying for a year. Anyone?

victor 2014-03-10 -1 point DOS version

Anybody having trouble having the game play on Windows 7? Can't get it to play at all.

Hands down the best baseball game made for PC. Wish I could run in on Windows 8 somehow

One of the first games I ever played. :'D

Retro ballparks available only in Legends League mode. I had the enhanced CD version back in the day where the retro ballparks were available in every mode. Still great to see this old game again.
