Online 'SmallBall' Offers Free Baseball
6:00 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story
A new java-based online Baseball game is now available for free from AndNow. Called SmallBall, the game is made by two former Sega employees and baseball fans Ed Annunziata and Gerry Blau, and is a labor of love. They felt Baseball had been ruined by money, so they made the game focusing on what they love about baseball. In the game, you're given a fresh team of players who you must name. From there, you train your players and pit your team against other players from around the world.
Here's a description of the game from the SmallBall website:
SmallBall gives you your own team. You train your players and decide what positions they play. Then, when you're ready, you challenge other teams. You are the coach, manager, and owner. The game should run on just about any Mac out there. If you're running OS X, you should have no problems, but if you're running in 9, just make sure you have the latest version of the Java Virtual Machine, which can be obtained from Apple. For more info on SmallBall, follow the link below to the web site.
Your goal: Own the BEST team in the WORLD!!!
The strategy of SmallBall is deep. Your players grow and evolve. Over time you get to know each of them, their strengths and weaknesses. As you observe their abilities you will determine how to train them.
SmallBall is played in a public arena. An active community of other players will see your every triumph, and your every failure!
