R.B.I. Baseball 4 or R.B.I. 4 Baseball (R.B.I.4.ベースボール) is a 1992 baseball game for the Sega Mega Drive by Tengen and the sequel to R.B.I. Baseball 3. It was followed by R.B.I. Baseball '93.

When batting, the D-pad moves around, A swings, and C changes pose. When pitching, Left and Right move and A pitches. If the ball is hit, you can control your teammates as they try to get the batter out, with A passing the ball.

A Sega Mega-CD version was announced[3], but cancelled for unknown reasons.
