"This game is a baseball fan's dream come true, and an absolute must have for anyone playing fantasy baseball this year," says Paul Lombardi, chief executive officer of Enlight Interactive. "The new Play-by-Play mode adds an exciting element to the game. Not only will users be able to keep track of game stats and player attributes as the team's general manager, but now they'll have the ability to simulate an entire game, pitch-by-pitch."
"Improvements on last year's version and brand-new features will provide players with an opportunity to see their team's pennant flags raised for years to come," says Clay Dreslough, president of Sports Mogul Inc. "With the start of the season just around the corner, fantasy players and fans of baseball in general will find plenty of ways to live out their big league dreams."
Baseball Mogul 2008 features the best simulation experience yet, with up-to-date lineups, a roster of over 18,000 current and former players, complete financial management control, and the ability to sign, trade, and release players. In this year's edition, players can watch the action on the diamond unfold like never before in Play-by-Play mode. As a general manager, enjoy the game from the luxury box and make the necessary power moves to keep your team in the pennant race. In manager mode, set up the proper defense to contain the opposition or instruct your batters to wait for a hitter's pitch. In Player mode, brush the batter back with a high and tight splitter, or swing at a fastball and aim for the fences.
