Home Run (1978)
For the Atari 2600, the game can be played against the computer or with another player. You have the option to have 1, 2 or 3 players in the field. As a pitcher, you use the joystick to throw the ball and to control its speed and curve. After the ball is hit, your control all your men (they all move together since they follow the orders of a single joystick) in the field to catch the ball. As a batter, you can control the position of the baseball bat with the joystick. The only way to accomplish a home run is by hitting the ball over second base without having it caught by the field players. This game is played the same as Baseball for the Atari.
