Pro League Baseball
DOS - 1992
Description of Pro League Baseball
Pro League Baseball is an excellent text-based baseball simulation from Micro Sports. Officially endorsed by USA's Major League Baseball, the game features full rosters for the 1991 season, as well as all the standard features one would expect to find in a detailed baseball simulation.
This means league play, team management, detailed statistics, drafts, trades, and accurately modeled stadiums. The game even has a nice download function for annual updates, although Micro Sports soon abandoned this function, requiring people to instead buy new games to use newer rosters. Although much more focused on accurate simulation than on bells & whistles, Pro League Baseball does not neglect this department. To enliven the static, spreadsheet-y look of most screens, the game uses RealSound audio technology (same as Access' early games) that enables digitized speech to be played from standard PC speakers. This is used as a running commentary that accompanies text description of what is going on during matches.
With my limited baseball knowledge, I cannot really vouch for the realism of the simulation, but I have heard many good things from baseball fans about the game. The designers' other sports game NFL Pro League Football was actually used by a number of publications to predict Super Bowl winner, so that should give you an indication of what to expect here ;) Recommended!

Hopefully someone can get the manual for this. I guess you need to enter a code for the team you are managing to get the exact play you want to do. The game is still playable as is but with no real strategy. It can however be used as a pure sim having two teams play each other. At least I think it can as I believe I saw the PC vs PC option.
