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. For whatever reason, the Japanese version does not uses the NPB's teams.

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

Gameplay

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.
