Bases Loaded (1987-1995)
Bases Loaded featured a unique television-style depiction of the pitcher-batter matchup, as well as strong play control and a relatively high degree of realism, which made it one of the most popular baseball games of the early NES era. One unique feature of the game is that the pitcher can provoke a batter to charge the mound. While Jaleco did hire Ryne Sandberg for an endorsement with Bases Loaded 3, this installment of the game did not feature real teams or players. More unpopular with players, however, was the somewhat bizarre premise that “playing a perfect game”, not winning a pennant, was the game’s ultimate goal.
