The standard by which others will be judged.
This is Hardball from Accolade. The first in a new generation of game software that sets the standard for others to beat, if they dare! With graphics so large and lifelike and sound effects so real, you'll believe you really are the ball park - yes, you can almost smell the hot-dogs!

Sorry we can't supply the hot-dogs, you'll have to bring your own - but everything else is here to recreate the atmosphere, tension and excitement of big time baseball on your own small screen.

Hardball is quite simply the most spectacular sports simulation computer game of all time. It's bottom of the 9th and the league's most feared slugger prepares to tee off on the next offering from the home team's ace fireballer. Will it be high or low, a curve or a screwball?

Batter up! Welcome to the most realistic baseball game ever designed. Step up to the plate and try to knock that ball out of the park. You can choose to bunt, steel a base, and control base running. When your team is in the field, you can control the type and location of pitch as well as the fielders.
