Front Page Sports presents Baseball Pro ’96 Season

Imagine a league where the manager never lets your pitcher take one for the team, and your power hitter is forbidden to give himself up to advance a runner. That’s what Front Page Sports presents Baseball Pro ’96 Season (Sierra On-line) promises. You create a league, draft the players, manage your team and play the games; it’s the rotisserie player’s dream. After an impressive opening simulation – the graphics are excellent, with 3D models of every major league ballpark – complete with some sweet crooning of baseball tunes, this ambitious program becomes confusing and frustrating. For instance, you’re told that you can control every swing, but it just ain’t so. When we told a batter to take his first pitch, either we were ignored or the ball was a called strike and the batter was somehow out (obviously adhering to the famous “one strike, you’re out” rule). With so much going on and so many options, the program needs to be more coherent. If and when you do get a grip, you’ll find the games enjoyable.

– October 1996
