A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Baseball players get annoyed when they strike out. Otherwise, they're portrayed as role models.

There are signs for the game maker in the stadiums, but no other ads.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while little kids can play the game with the Wiimote in home run and exhibition mode, teens and adults can have a deep experience when managing or playing a season. Occasional glitches can be maddening.
Is It Any Good?
The subpar graphics may be a turnoff, as may the glitches that happen occasionally in a game. You may start an inning and suddenly, there was an out before you do anything. Or, there is someone on base before you take your first pitch. This doesn't happen all that much, but it's very strange and annoying. Sadly, there's no online mode, either.
Ultimately, the game is as good as any of the bigger sports games like Major League Baseball 2K8 minus the great graphics. Again, this is not a kiddie game only. It can be as deep as you want it to be, just like MLB 08: The Show.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
