World Series Baseball is a 1994 baseball game by Sega and BlueSky Software released for the Sega Mega Drive in the US. It was followed by World Series Baseball '95.

A World Series Baseball game, most likely a port of this version, was once planned for release on the Sega Mega-CD[2]. This version would have had a "3D field view" and was originally set for release in October 1993[3].

Gameplay

In addition to having a regular exhibition mode as in other baseball games, this game has several other modes:

  • Home Run Derby: up to eight players choose a batter from the team of their choice and has 10 attempts to hit as many home runs as possible (a missed attempt is either three strikes or a hit that isn't a home run)
  • Batting Practice (self-explanatory)

Furthermore, other than using the bog-standard control methods of earlier baseball games, World Series Baseball introduces three different levels of control for the batter and pitcher: Rookie (automatic targeting) and Veteran and All-Star (where instead of physically moving around you move a target around to show where to bat/pitch).
