Great Baseball (1987) & American Baseball (1989)
Since it looks good and plays terrible, Great Baseball hardly lives up to its hyperbolic title. Batter and pitcher animation is smooth, and there are a variety of features (including pitcher and pinch hitter substitution), but the fielders move super slow, bringing the action to a grinding halt whenever the ball is hit into play. Twenty-six generic teams and the addition of a Home Run Contest, which is a practice mode against 20 perfect pitches, are not enough to save the game from the minor leagues. Published by Sega for the Sega Master System. This game was followed up with Reggie Jackson Baseball in 1988, and a year later, Reggie left the franchise and it became American Baseball.
