Determine whether your players will hit, bunt, hit and run, or steal. The Action! PC base coach displays the percentage chance of successfully sending a runner to the next base as well as the arm strength of the player who will be throwing the ball! Substitute a late inning defensive replacement, or use that situational lefty to get a tough out in the 8th inning. All of the strategic decisions are in your hands!

Action! PC Baseball allows you to customize your game screen with a variety of display options. It features every big league park and the ability to import your own! The optional video chalkboard option allows you to view ball flight, throws, base runner and fielder movements.

You can make all the roster moves for human managed teams.  The computer will handle promotions and demotions for computer managed teams by calling up injuring replacements, cutting down to the required roster limits and replacing overused or ineffective players.  The computer general manager will even "call-up" emergency spot starters!

You can micromanage strategy and playing time for each player rather than by team.  Specify when to pull a pitcher based on pitch counts, when to pull a pitcher for a pinch hitter, who to use or not to use as a defensive replacement, who to pinch run for, who not to pinch run for, and many more!  You can even specify preferred left and right batting order positions for each player!

The Roster Management tools let you easily make simple or complex managerial decisions. Manage a team any way you like. It feels like real baseball.

PLAYER RATINGS

Players are rated using every available published statistic as well as expert subjective analysis. Each subjective rating—defensive range, outfield arm, catcher arm, base running, bunt, hit and run, clutch pitcher rating, and more—is essential to accurately translate real-life characteristics of the game. For example, the clutch pitcher rating helps to accurately portray the effectiveness of a pitcher such as Pete Vuckovich in 1982, who allowed a high number of hits and walks, yet had a 3.34 earned run average and won the CY Young award. While he may allow a high number of base runners, it enhances his ability to get out of situations with players on base. We use actual L/R splits when available and estimate them for historical seasons. As a result, each player performs as he did in real life with amazing statistical accuracy.

HISTORICAL TOOLS

One unique element of Action! PC Baseball is the Era tool. From 1876 to present, each year is separated statistically based upon league averages from that season.  Therefore, teams from different eras are automatically normalized when playing each other.

Every big league ball park from 1876 to present also has its own statistical breakdown for every season that it was in use. See how A-Rod might have hit in 2002 if he played his home games at Coors Field; or see how many home runs “The Babe” might have hit in 1927 had he played at the Polo Grounds instead of Old Yankee Stadium!
