Play Ball! R.B.I. Baseball is coming to your handset and tablet

Play Ball! R.B.I. Baseball is coming to your handset and tablet
If you're a baseball fan, you might remember R.B.I. Baseball, originally developed for the NES. The last appearance of the game was R.B.I.Baseball 95 for the Sega 32X. Like an aging ballplayer energized after a couple of seasons in Japan, the title is returning. This time around, the game is being developed by MLB Advanced Media, which is the big league's in-house media arm responsible for the popular At Bat app. That should mean more realistic images and the use of real player's names and team logos.

R.B.I.Baseball 14 will be available this spring for current and next-gen consoles. But more importantly as far as we're concerned, the game will have its debut on handsets and tablets. If you want to be notified when the game is ready to load on your device, you can register your email address on the new R.B.I. Baseball website, which you can visit by clicking on the sourcelink.

Hopefully, the new version of R.B.I. Baseball will use real statistics and players will perform as they do in real life. Of course, that won't make fans of the Houston Astros and Miami Marlins any happier

As a die hard Yankee fan, I hope A-Riod is suspended here too.

I can't really think of anyone in the world right now that I hate more than that piece of excrement. Somebody should've offed him the day he landed one behind Griffey on the all-time home run list. If I had a time machine, I'd run this guy's mom over while he was still in the womb. Sorry.

NESoid/SNESoid/N64oid + Wiimote Controller + HDMI cable = classic fun

and that would be for playing a 20 year old baseball game as opposed to a new one. And if I was to do that, I would be playing something like World Series Baseball or the Ken Griffey Jr games, not RBI baseball.
