MY PROMISE
My games are genuine, install in one step, look, sound and play in Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP like they did in the old days, or your money back. This is my unconditional guarantee for three years.

WHAT IS INCLUDED
This listing includes the original game CD. An on-screen printable manual is also included. The box is pictured for reference and is not included.

I will also provide a compatibility CD that will allow the game to run under ALL VERSIONS of Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP, both 32 and 64 bit.

INSTALLATION
One step: Insert my CD and the game will automatically work on your computer. Done. Yes, it's that simple.

Want to play? Click the icon. Want the game off your computer? Click Uninstall. Zero hassle.

TECH SUPPORT
Rapid response technical support for three years is always an e-mail or phone call away.

In the extremely rare event I cannot get this title to work on your system I will take it back for a full refund. All I ask is minimal assistance from you during the troubleshooting process.

 

The Game
With oversaturated colors, realistic-looking players (cleverly introduced in the form of trading cards), and physics that approximate what actually happens on a baseball diamond, Hardball 4 affords little room for complaint. (It is odd, however, that teams are identified by city but not by name, the result of Accolade's obtaining a licensing agreement from the Major League Baseball Players Association but not from Major League Baseball.) And, like previous HardBalls, this game offers as deep a selection of managerial and statistical options as could be desired by the most itense enthusiast -- ranging all the way from changing a player's name to changing the team's logo pixel by pixel.

What's most impressive about HardBall 4 is the voice-over work of Al Michaels, who, by the mid 90s, surpassed John Madden as the hardest-working broadcaster in multimedia. As he calls 700 players by name, in a variety of play combinations, I can imagine the poor guy locked in a sound booth for weeks on end, begging for a drink of water between ''Hector Fajardo'' and ''Felix Fermin.'' Of course, this makes Michaels' play-by-play sound like those automated phone listings you get when you dial information. But there's no detracting from his technical accomplishment.
