This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.

Baseball Advance is a baseball game developed by Smilebit and published by Sega (THQ in the US) for the Game Boy Advance.

Though its US logo may suggest the game is part of the World Series Baseball series, it is actually part of the Greatest Nine series - a franchise that up until this point had never left Japan. Unlike other entries in the series, this one has no subtitle, and is therefore simply known as Greatest Nine (グレイテストナイン) in that region.
