Sports Illustrated: Computer Baseball (1981–1983)
Statis Pro Baseball was a strategic baseball simulation board game. It was created by Jim Barnes in 1970, named after a daily newspaper column he wrote for an Iowa morning newspaper, and published by Avalon Hill in 1978, and new player cards were made for each new season until 1992. A licensing dispute with Major League Baseball led Avalon Hill to cease production of new cards. From 1981 to 1983 they made a computer version of the game with Sports Illustrated as the licensing partner. The board game has continued each year, and today, Statis Pro Baseball Online (SPBO) is an online version of the board game, but not a video game, per se.
