For everyone who hasn't given up on the steroid-tainted sport, baseball season has just begun.

Welcome to baseball, you noob. Anybody who has played a bball game will tell you this is how bball is.

And to say this game is not fun and is like work is retarded. This game is fun as hell and addictive also, and with more modes than you can shake your stick at it is well worth every penny!
