There have been many cool baseball games, in various styles, created over the years. In this article I present an overview of several different styles of baseball games that exist today.
When you think about it, baseball concepts are really quite simple. Essentially, if you can swing something and propel another object, you can turn it into a game of baseball.
The simplicity of these concepts has caused a great deal of creativity to be focused on developing games that emulate baseball in some way. In fact, in some games you don’t even swing or hit anything, you just pretend that you did.
I have visited the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York two times. The museum, which is filled with MLB baseball memorabilia, was the highlight of my visits.
There are three sections making up this baseball shrine: the actual Hall of Fame, which honors elected members, the museum and a research library. This is the hall’s 75th year, so it has been a year of special celebrations and events.
In this review, I will share our impressions of the hall, highlight a few special areas of the museum, and note some of the changes that have taken place since I was there.
