With skill and practice, the two-out full-count pitch just catches the corner of the plate -- the inning ends, and it's party time. But let it fall off just a hair and the batter takes his base. Worse yet, let it float into the zone and he breaks into his home run trot. Not long after, the manager reminds the team how well they played, and that it's a long season.
That lesson should not be lost on MLB 08: The Show. Sony's effort for the PS3 baseball season falls a little short of winning the big game, but it puts in a solid 162-game performance. It makes a strong impression out of the box. As the camera sweeps in for the pregame commentary of your first game, you'll notice that each major league park has been lovingly re-created. And many players will probably stop to marvel at how lifelike the players look as the leadoff hitter steps up to the plate".
