Baseball for the Arcadia 2001 is a second-generation 8-bit console released by Emerson Radio Corp. The game library was composed of 51 unique games. Baseball 2001 looked 20 years into the future, and was a passable rendition of America’s pastime. Players control each outfielder individually and can throw the ball to each of the four bases, but the computer controls the infielders. When a ball is hit to an infielder, the batter is automatically out. When a ball is hit into the outfield, the perspective switches to an odd close-up angle of the nearest outfielder, who can run right and left to try and catch the ball. The baseball players are stick figures, and they make a terrible grating sound when running on or off the field.
