Emulation
This game works with: Mini vMac

With the shipment of MicroLeague Baseball, a tremendous gap in the Mac gaming market has been filled: at last we have a baseball simulation that uses real players and the statistics they accumulate.
- MacWorld

That's the raison d'être here: not reflex action à la Hardball, but pitting historical teams against one another. On each turn, click the "Offense" or "Defense" button for a menu of strategic options. Alternatively, let the computer play both teams in "Quik-Play" mode and study the box score of your chosen matchup.

The game is archived in its original format of two 800K disks, as well as a combined 1.4MB image for more convenient use under emulation. You can also copy everything but the System Folder from the 1.4MB disk to your hard drive and play from there.

Important: One of the 25 teams included with the game, "Tigers Greats," is missing from this copy due to a bad sector on the original disk. If you have a copy of that file, please add it to the archive. (It would be possible, if very time-consuming, to manually enter the Tigers Greats data from the MS-DOS version of the game. However, this wouldn't include the phonetic pronunciations of the players' names, which seems to have been a Mac-only feature.)
