2020 Super Baseball is a 1991 Neo-Geo arcade baseball game with a futuristic setting by SNK and Pallas. Electronic Arts ported it to the Sega Mega Drive in 1993, calling it Super Baseball 2020 in the US and Europe and 2020 Nen Super Baseball (2020年スーパーベースボール) in Japan.

Gameplay

When batting, A and C swing and the D-pad moves around. When pitching, C pitches and the D-pad moves around. When the ball is in the air and the other team is up to bat, you can control the movements of the other players on your team once the ball has been hit with the D-pad.
