99s, list of outstanding features includes VMS, or Virtual Management
System. "VMS enables players the ability to manage his
or her team", stated Sega Vice President of Sales and Marketing,
Barbara Joyiens. "Players can design their lineup, put in a pinch
hitter or replace a pitcher with a fresh arm out of the bull pen adding
greatly to the reality of the game playing experience."
Each player has a joystick, a spring action lever and two buttons to control
the action. Using these controls, players hit, pitch, bunt, steal and
field the ball. While theyre easy to use and understand, they deliver
great feel and amazing accuracy.
Game play takes place in one of three classic stadiums, two outdoors and
one inside a covered dome. These stadium renderings are so accurate, youll
swear you can smell hot dogs and peanuts. During game play, when a batter
gets on base, the screen splits horizontally showing the pitcher and batter
in the top _ and the base-runner(s) in the bottom _. This lets both players
see whats happening on the base paths making steals and pick-off
plays exciting features of the game play.
