Retro Computer Baseball Game Review – Earl Weaver Baseball II

Retro Computer Baseball Game Review – Earl Weaver Baseball II

 

This is the twelfth entry in a series focusing on computer baseball simulations to supplement the chapter “Play Retro Baseball Video Games In Your Browser” from my Hardball Retroactive book along with the corresponding post at Baseball Analytics. The series focuses on baseball simulations – games in which the primary emphasis is on managerial strategy and the ability to replay entire seasons with a degree of realism. Baseball video games that are strictly arcade representations of baseball (based solely on reflex and hand-eye coordination) are excluded.

Review

Earl Weaver Baseball II augmented numerous elements that were pioneered in the original masterwork. Although the sequel suffered from several flaws, I found myself compelled to tinker with the copious options with the main program and the Commissioners Disk II utility. Spending time with the abundant editing modules gave me a newfound appreciation for the amount of effort that went into the creation of this series.

The Earl Weaver Baseball II: Commemorative Edition, released a few months after the main EWB II game, included the 256-color VGA edition of the game along with the Commissioner’s Disk II, MLBPA Player Stats and Manager Profiles and a copy of the book “Weaver on Strategy”.

Eddie Dombrower (the game’s designer) later acquired the rights to the code from Electronic Arts and subsequently ported it to a Windows version (I Got It Baseball) in 2001 and an iPhone release (EWB Baseball) in 2009.

I planned to simulate an entire season using the Old-Timer League provided with the game which included All-Star seasons from the best players in the history of the game through the 1975 season, divided into American and National Leagues in 15-year segments. However, I commenced an update of the league structure to incorporate 6 new teams from the past 45 seasons. I entered split stats for all players and adjusted their ratings, tweaked the Old-Timer rosters and lineups, and added 15 reserves per team. The resulting “All-Time” league is available for download here. Once the league configuration was completed, I selected the Create/View Schedule option from Commissioner’s Disk II. I generated a 162-game schedule with a 16-team league (8 AL and 8 NL All-Time Teams), choosing to play 98 games within the division (14 games x 7 teams) and 64 games against the other division (8 games x 8 teams). The DH rule was used in all games along with 5-man rotations, injuries enabled, starting pitchers allowed to pitch in relief, 4 maximum rest days and starter’s rest days based on the number of innings pitched in their previous appearance. The entire season took approximately 11 hours to simulate in Super Fast mode with the Auto-Accumulate Box Scores and Save Box Scores To Disk options selected. The process displays a line score for the current game in progress. The Play Schedule screen allows you to simulate part of a schedule if you wish and you’re able to adjust the options for viewing or participating in specific games. You can elect to manage games for one or more teams and have the computer simulate the remaining matches. The AI made substitutions for injured players during the season but it did not utilize the reserved players. The final standings, team-by-team statistics and league leaders are revealed later in the article.

I reached out to the game’s designer, Eddie Dombrower, to discuss the artificial intelligence and philosophy behind the creation of this innovative series.

DB: I’m having a blast updating the All-Time Great Teams while implementing 6 new ball clubs in order to create a 16-team All-Star league for this review. I revised the original “Oldtime” players using their split stats, tweaked the rosters a bit and added reserves. Using the 15-year grouping as a guideline, I created AL and NL teams for 1976-1990, 1991-2005 and 2006-2020. One of my favorite aspects of the EWB series is the ability and ease in which one can edit teams, ballparks and managerial traits.

ED:  Part of the ethos of EWB was the flexibility and expandability of the experience for the users.  Don Daglow and I were both inspired by the Strat-O-Matic and APBA games where you could get a yearly updated set of players, trade, them etc. Since we were thinking in terms of what computers had to offer, the ability to manage this at any time by giving the user tools was an easy leap for us.  We wanted the game to not just be a moment in time, but a “tool” that users could enjoy to create the experience they wanted – whenever they wanted to do it. I think this was a pretty big departure for other computer/video games of the era. In addition, the decision to make the computer simulation based on a virtual ballfield (this was envisioned and implemented in 1983 when I built Intellivision World Series Baseball… 4 years before the term Virtual Reality was coined!) led to the same philosophy about the physical environment of the gameplay model. With artificial turf, strong prevailing winds (no waterfront cities will be mentioned by me here!) and, of course, green monsters, porches, weirdly shaped foul ground, and other irregular configurations, it was necessary to allow US to configure the stadiums, so allowing users to do it was a pretty easy step to consider. So, EWB became as much a “system” as a game… this is why, in some respects, the game took so long to create!

DB: How much effort is involved with the implementation and testing of the physics model given the expansive possibilities for ballpark dimensions?

ED: It was a pretty large effort.  As you can imagine, with virtually unlimited combinations, we had to take approaches that would allow us to look for patterns… primarily patterns that were non-sensical.

So, in a similar set of ideas and decisions, we designed and built features for US that ended up being features for players:  Instant replay was built as a debugging tool (including the freeze frame, slow motion and, in the EWB II version, changing camera angles. It turned out to be a popular feature.  “Sharing” plays was created so the team in Redwood City could save a play and email it to me when they saw something odd (or cool!) I could then load it up, replay that saved play and, if need be debug it.  Because it was a virtual simulator, the game never relied on the screen’s drawings/pixels to determine the outcome of a play… In fact, displaying the 10-12 frames per second really slowed down the gameplay… We realized we could play the games without the graphics; a game would play in seconds. So, using the scheduler tool (again, we had to build for our own QA usage), we could play partial or complete seasons in very short order. Then, building a suite of comprehensive reporting tools allowed the team at EA and other alpha and beta test users (especially the folks at Computer Gaming World), to run series of games in all kinds of configurations looking for anomalies… We then had to figure out if the anomalies made sense or required adjustments to the model.

Yet another process was the auto-lineup feature… depending on what you did to your team, you could end up with all kinds of oddball lineups, so the Ask Earl feature was as much about debugging the system as it was a user feature.

After a while, as with any complex piece of software, the team (big shout out to Happy Keller and Dave Maynard) began to know what to look for and would set up situations that would tax the simulator to be sure it was doing “baseball” things and not inexplicable computer things.

DB: What features did you want to enhance from the original EWB when you began work on EWB II? Did you consider attempting to implement speech similar to the Amiga version of EWB in the IBM products or was this simply not feasible at the time?

ED:  Our main focus on EWB II was really trying to get the large animation/TV style effect that Don had envisioned and told me about the day he hired me at Mattel!  There was a little discussion about the play-by-play but the technology and the amount of memory we had to restrict ourselves to precluded spending much, if any, effort on that. It’s really too bad in retrospect as the Amiga experience was just so much better with the great audio design (based, again, on what we did at Intellivision).

Another feature was allowing Mods to the program so that users/other programmers could leverage the EWB engine to do other things… hardly anyone knew about this because it wasn’t really part of gaming yet (it was inspired, in fact, by the plug-ins that design software of that time allowed).

In fact, we did work with Bitwise software to build a product that leveraged this. I don’t recall what it was called, but, in conjunction with Stats Inc., we took their 15 minute delayed feed from the ballparks and replayed the REAL games that they were tracking. So, if someone hit a double in the right field gap that scored a runner from first, but the batter was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple, we would have that data from Stats Inc. 15 minutes after the fact, then show it on your computer using the EWB II graphics.

Another feature was the programmable managers… So, the default AI was based on Earl, but you could modify the behavior of the manager on your team so he would make different choices in the simulation. We modeled a base set of selectable managers from the famous managers of the day and from history.

We also tried to simplify the flow of the pre-game… it became more of a wizard than a choose-your-own-adventure.

Music was original rather than Sousa’s Stars and Stripes. It was written by Nathan Wang who is an academy award music nominee and has been writing film and TV scores since the mid ’80s.

Background photography was added to give a more video/photo feel to get around a more animated style that most everyone else was doing. This was based on the original Ask Earl graphics from the Amiga version.

The commissioner’s disk was greatly expanded with new tools and reports including an import/export system to work with Stats Inc.

And, my favorite feature that was beta tested with Tony Hernandez (a local LA sportscaster at the time), was the daily simulation season. In this version of the game, you would manage your team’s roster and starting lineups, program your manager and design your field, Then every night we would download the game stats and play the next set of games on EWB using only the last game’s stats for each player… a radically different approach to Fantasy baseball that is truly addictive when you’re playing it… Each morning he would “post” the results as a telephone message reading the EWB box scores and game highlights.

Again, from the above, I hope it’s obvious that we were going more for a system than just a yearly game.

DB: What products did you consider as your main competition? In what respects did EWB or EWB II outperform your competitors, and which of their innovations or features impressed you?

ED: From the beginning, Hardball was always one of games most in our sights. Though EWB wasn’t only an action game, that was the game we started competing against. As the video game systems came back from the Atari/Mattel crash of the mid 80’s, we kept an eye towards the video game baseball games, but frankly, I can’t remember their names.

Honestly, as EWB was a hybrid, I think it had some trouble competing with the action-only games. Also, because of its complexity as a simulator, we gave up a lot of processing power to having to do both the simulation and the graphics which made the ill-fated Sega version never make it to market as I recall.

On a high end PC, I think you catch glimmers of how EWB II was way ahead of the trend in terms of looking like real baseball. Electronic Arts was working on other projects that attempted to do similar things at the time, but not inside a complete simulator. However, we really didn’t have the kinks worked out or the speed to have the bigger players and cameras working on more average computers.

I know that there were many innovations on the fielding aspect of the action games.  If I recall, Don’s Tony LaRussa Baseball really led the competition in the action of the game.  Also, if I recall, they didn’t try to make graphics that were beyond the typical home computer of the day and, in that, they made some great visual advances that were “between” the EWB overview and the over-reaching EWB II tv-style graphics. I’m sure there were many other competitors, but I really don’t recall.

Again, the EWB/EWB II systems were still, IMHO, way ahead of anything at the time.  Out of the Park and others that were more focused on non-graphical/limited graphical simulation may have had similar capabilities…

EWB had the stats+physics model which I think, in those days, still gave EWB a different, hopefully, realistic feel that we didn’t see in a lot of other games.

Finally, career mode may have just been invented when we decided to part ways (my company and EA), but it was the one major feature that would have been great to have added that has since become an important part of the genre.

DB: Are there any features that had to be cut from EWB II due to time constraints? I understand that there was an unreleased patch for EWB II, along with a third iteration of EWB (Baseball ’93) that Electronic Arts failed to publish.

ED: Yes, you have that right. The stats-testing was not as good in EWB II which was a disappointment and ended up costing us a lot in the product’s reputation. We did put together a beta testers group AFTER the release that helped fill this gap and then helped get us ready for the update/patch.  I do not recall why EA never released it/promoted it. It was, frankly, a pretty large disappointment.

Also, the time didn’t allow us to better tune the “director” to make a better visual experience.  I think we should have figured out a better way to make EWB II a better visual experience for the average computer and not released with the BIG tv closeups as the default for everyone.

Even the crowd graphics never got completely implemented.

The EWB ’93 project may have been the live “delayed broadcast” version. I’m pretty sure it is, but by then, EA seemed to be focused on EA Sports with new executives and no one really managing our relationship. We did make a deal and we did provide a) the design for the first EA Sports baseball game and b) all the EWB code that was going to be used for the basis of that game to be built internally under Earnest Adams. But the new producers had other plans and approaches that never melded with leveraging the EWB engine which was a disappointment to me.

DB: Do you have any plans to revive the I Got It Baseball project? Around the release date of the EWB Baseball – iPhone game, you posted about plans to implement internet play.

ED:  I would love to, but it would require someone to help me with the funding as we’d need to update the graphics and rebuild some of the code to work on modern machines… Someday with the right partners!

I decided against managing through a normal playoff series in favor of a single-elimination tournament in order to experience all of the rosters that I created or edited. I simulated two seasons using the All-Time League. I encountered a few issues based on oversights with manager profile selections on several teams along with several (since corrected) data-entry errors in the split stats. I applied the results below from the first simulated season for the purposes of the Tournament Seeding and included the complete results of the second season later in the article. A brief synopsis of every Tournament game is provided below along with the box score.

Round 1

16 @ 1 – AL2006-20 @ NL1991-05

Greg Maddux took the mound in the tournament’s opening tilt against Justin Verlander at the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Mookie Betts led off the game with a single and advanced to third on a throwing error by Chipper Jones (with Miguel Cabrera safe at first). Maddux obviated the threat when he converted a David Ortiz comebacker into a 1-6-3 double play. With two outs in the home half of the first, Barry Bonds clubbed a 460-foot solo blast over the right-field bleachers to give the home team a 1-0 advantage. In the third frame, Jones lined a solid base knock that dropped in front of right fielder Mookie Betts. Bonds stepped to the dish and absolutely demolished a high heater from “JV” for a 500-foot long distance dedication that cleared the scoreboard in center field! Maddux continued to put up goose eggs into the seventh. Robinson Cano reached on a bounding single up the middle. Pinch-runner Jose Altuve scored all the way from first on a long single off the right-center field wall by catcher Joe Mauer. Maddux induced a double-play grounder to short off the bat of Derek Jeter to extinguish the rally. Francisco J. Rodriguez replaced Verlander in the seventh and promptly retired the side in order. After Mookie Betts walked on four pitches with one down in the top of the eighth, the skipper decided to bring in a fresh arm. John Wetteland jogged in from the ‘pen to face Mike Trout. Wetteland’s errant pick-off attempt sailed over Jeff Bagwell’s head and down the right field line, allowing Betts to move up one base. Trout coaxed a base on balls, and the NL manager elected to bring in Eric Gagne to oppose Miguel Cabrera. Gagne tried twice to pick Betts off of second base to no avail and then he proceeded to whiff “Miggy” on 3 pitches. “Big Papi” struck out and Gagne pumped his fist in elation! Zack Britton came into the contest following a one-out infield hit by Craig Biggio. He retired Jones on a fielder’s choice and then issued an intentional pass to Bonds. Joe Nathan came into the contest to face Mark McGwire. “Big Mac” swung through Nathan’s slider, and the NL 1991-2005 squad clung to a 3-1 lead entering the ninth inning. “Hell’s Bells” blared out over the PA system as Trevor Hoffman strolled in from the bullpen. Hoffman plunked pinch-hitter Chris Davis, providing an ominous start to the frame. Altuve and Mauer were retired on fly balls, bringing Jeter to the plate with two away and pinch-runner Evan Longoria hugging the first-base bag. “The Captain” went down swinging as he was fooled by a change-up from Hoffman.

15 @ 2 – NL1931-45 @ NL2006-20

“King” Carl Hubbell began to warm up for the NL1931-45 club as Jacob deGrom and the NL 2006-20 crew trotted out to their positions at Dodger Stadium. Arky Vaughan drew a leadoff walk but he was promptly erased on a 6-4-3 double play grounder off the bat of Paul Waner. Hubbell had trouble finding the plate in the bottom of the first. He walked Bryce Harper on four pitches and then drilled Hanley Ramirez in the ribs with a tailing fastball. Albert Pujols laced a line drive single to center but Wally Berger cut down Harper at the plate with a laser throw. Hubbell extracted himself from the jam when he induced Giancarlo Stanton to smack a hot grounder to Vaughan, who initiated a beautiful 6-4-3 double play. In the home half of the second, Hubbell plunked David Wright and gave up a single to center by Andrew McCutchen. Chase Utley dribbled a slow roller down the first base line. Dolph Camilli charged in and exercised poor judgment when he attempted to turn a 3-6-3 double play. All runners were safe resulting in a bases loaded situation with Buster Posey due up. Fortunately for Camilli, his teammates pulled off a DP on a bounding ball by Posey to retire the side. Ernie Lombardi sustained an injury to his right hand when attempting to corral a pitch in the dirt from Hubbell with two outs in the fifth inning. He was replaced by Harry Danning. Billy Herman broke up deGrom’s no-hit bid in the visitor’s sixth with two away on a clean single up the middle. Pujols reached on a two-base error by Vaughan to commence the bottom of the sixth. “The Machine” scored the first run of the game on a long single to left field by Stanton. Joe Medwick doubled into the right-field corner leading off the top of the eighth. After a brief mound visit, deGrom settled in to strike out Camilli. He enticed Danning and Pepper Martin to ground out as the NL 2006-20 team held onto their one-run lead. Craig Kimbrel was on the bump to start the ninth after 8 brilliant innings from deGrom. Augie Galan, batting for Billy Herman, scalded a one-hopper to Utley who calmly flipped to Pujols for one out. Vaughan ripped Kimbrel’s offering towards the hole between first and second, but “Prince Albert” smoothly fielded the shot and scampered over to first for out #2. Waner tapped a little dribbler up the first base line. Pujols raced in, grabbed it and touched the bag for the final out to secure the 1-0 victory.

14 @ 3 – NL1946-60 @ NL1901-15

Christy Mathewson toed the rubber for the NL 1901-15 ball club at the Polo Grounds while opposing hurler Robin Roberts prepared to face a formidable foe. Jackie Robinson delivered a ringing double down the left field line to commence the contest, but “Matty” left him stranded at second base with successive strikeouts of Ernie Banks and Duke Snider. The game remained scoreless until the top of the fourth when “Big Six” grooved a 3-2 fastball which Banks deposited into the right-field stands for a round tripper. Jesse Burkett’s two-bagger knocked in Gavvy Cravath with the tying run in the home half of the fourth. The pitcher’s duel extended into the ninth frame as Mathewson and Roberts continued to hold the opposition in check. “Laughing” Larry Doyle launched a long drive to left field with one out in the bottom of the ninth, easily clearing the wall for a walk-off four-ply swat!

13 @ 4 – NL1961-75 @ AL1991-05

Pedro J. Martinez got the call for the AL 1991-2005 crew, primed to square off against a starting lineup featuring Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and 3 members of the Big Red Machine. The NL 1961-1975 stars were eager to take their hacks against “Petey” while their ace left-hander Sandy Koufax got loose in the bullpen at old Comiskey Park. Joe Morgan and the “Say Hey Kid” supplied back-to-back safeties with one down in the first, but Aaron rapped into a 6-4-3 twin-killing. In the top of the second, Willie McCovey destroyed an inside fastball from Martinez as he cleared the roof! Later in the frame, Albert Belle misplayed a scorched shot down the left field line by Roberto Clemente into a three-base hit. The Senior Circuit failed to push across any more runs as Maury Wills grounded out weakly to Frank E. Thomas. The Americans tied the game in the bottom of the second when Manny Ramirez blooped a double down the right field line to drive in Ken Griffey Jr., who had reached on a hit by pitch leading off the inning. Koufax got into a bases loaded jam in the fifth inning with two outs. Frank E. Thomas drew a base on balls to force in the go-ahead run and the bullpen began to stir. Griffey whiffed to quell the uprising. Aaron knotted the score at 2-2 with an opposite-field 506-foot clout into the upper tank in right-center. Don Drysdale relieved Koufax to start the bottom of the sixth. “Big D” issued a free pass to Manny Ramirez to start the seventh and then Ichiro Suzuki laced a two-bagger into the left field corner. Mike G. Marshall came on in relief with a pair of runners in scoring position and only one out. With the infield drawn in, Roberto Alomar barely got a piece of Marshall’s screwball and tapped it weakly in front of home plate. Johnny Bench scrambled to retrieve the ball, but his only play was to throw down to first base to get Alomar as pinch-runner Rafael Palmeiro streaked home to give the AL squad a 3-2 lead. Martinez exited the match after twirling 7 1/3 innings. Joe L. Morgan greeted reliever Roberto M. Hernandez with an infield hit and promptly pilfered second. “Little Joe” wreaked more havoc on the bases, advancing to third on an errant pick-off attempt by Hernandez. With the infield playing halfway, Mays hit a little dribbler past the mound towards short. Alex Rodriguez gunned the ball home but Morgan slid under Ivan Rodriguez’s tag to tie the game at 3-3. After Aaron coaxed a base on balls, the skipper had seen enough. He stomped out to the mound, took the ball from Hernandez, and handed over to Keith Foulke. Jim Thome made a heads-up play on McCovey’s grounder as he beat Mays to the bag at third for out #2. Dick Allen skied out to left to retire the side. Bench beat out a slow roller towards shortstop to start the top of the ninth. Pinch-runner Lou Brock swiped second. Clemente hit into a fielder’s choice with Brock moving up 90 feet. Jose Mesa entered the game and Billy L. Williams batted for Wills. Mesa intentionally walked “Sweet Swingin’ Billy”, electing to face Pete Rose with runners at the corners and one away. Rose made him pay for that slight, belting a single to right as Brock effortlessly ambled homeward. Morgan tacked on another run with a sharp single to center. Kevin Appier, the third pitcher of the frame for the American League, got Mays to hit into an odd 6-4-5 double play. “A-Rod” dropped Mays’ line drive, threw to second for the force and then Rose was tagged out in a controversial play at third which resulted in a heated argument between the NL skipper and the third-base ump. Marshall set down the side in order to seal the victory in the ninth.

12 @ 5 – AL1901-15 @ AL1946-60

Bob Feller opposed Walter Johnson in a bout of American League squads at old Yankee Stadium. “Shoeless” Joe Jackson crushed “Rapid Robert’s” high heat into deep center field and raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run to lead off the game! Nap Lajoie walloped a towering solo shot into the left-center field bleachers with two outs in the top of the first to give his club a 2-0 lead. Larry Doby’s screaming line drive one-hopped the right field wall leading off the bottom of the frame but Jackson fielded the carom and relayed quickly to the infield, holding Doby to a single. “The Big Train” nearly yielded a game-tying circuit clout to Ted Williams, but Jackson hauled it in with his back against the right-field wall. Yogi Berra reached “Barney” in the bottom of the second with an opposite-field swat to reduce the AL 1901-1915 advantage to 2-1. George S. Davis and Jackson supplied back-to-back safeties in the top of the third inning. With two outs, Lajoie lofted a single into center to plate Davis. Lajoie stole second but Jackson was nabbed at the dish on a delayed steal of home. Doby drilled a two-bagger to right-center and Williams singled to shallow center with two outs in the bottom of the third. Al Rosen tapped a little roller towards shortstop. Everyone was safe and Doby scored. Johnson, clinging to a 3-2 lead, worked himself into deeper distress when Berra slapped a sharp single to left field, loading the bases for Rocky Colavito. After a brief mound visit, Johnson issued a free pass to force in a run and knot the score at 3-3. Rosen sprinted homeward on a passed ball charged to Ted Easterly and the AL 1946-1960 crew assumed the lead. Joe Gordon halted the rally when he flied out to Jackson in deep right field. Feller allowed a pair of singles and a walk to Davis with two away in the visitor’s fifth to load the bases. Jackson promptly whacked a two-run base hit into center field as AL 1901-15 reclaimed the advantage. After Eddie Collins coaxed a walk to reload the bags, the skipper had seen enough. Satchel Paige induced Cobb to ground out weakly to first base. Reb Russell relieved the “Big Train” in the home seventh. He pitched a scoreless frame, working around a one-out single by “The Splendid Splinter”. Joe Page entered the contest after George R. Stone slapped a single to left with two down in the eighth, only the second safety permitted by Paige in four scoreless innings. Pinch-hitter Sam Crawford flied out to left and the score remained 5-4 after 7 ½ innings. Ed Walsh ambled to the mound, attempting to preserve the lead and potential rack up a six-out save, but he immediately got into hot water when Colavito hammered a ground-rule double to right-center field. Gordon’s patience paid off with a base on balls. Pinch-runners Dom DiMaggio and Nellie Fox taunted Walsh as he prepared to face Mickey Vernon while the manager quickly got “Smoky” Joe Wood and Jack Coombs up in the ‘pen. Vernon hit a high chopper to third for an infield hit. Minnie Minoso, batting for Phil Rizzuto with the sacks juiced, pounded a worm-killer up the middle. The shortstop, George S. Davis, fielded and heaved the horsehide to home plate but “The Little Professor” evaded the tag. Nellie Fox dashed home on a wild pitch as the AL 1946-60 club recaptured the lead, 6-5! Doby produced a sacrifice fly to right, plating Vernon while Walsh finally recorded an out. Wood’s arm was finally loose and the skipper made his move, but the damage had already been done. Kaline welcomed Wood with a loud base knock that dropped in front of Jackson and allowed Minoso to amble home. Wiliams rapped into a 4-6-3 double play and the inning mercifully ended. Page capped the winning effort with a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

11 @ 6 – AL1961-75 @ AL1931-45

On a bright and blustery day in Boston, Hal Newhouser sauntered out to the mound and warmed up while his counterpart Gaylord Perry stretched out in the visitor’s bullpen at Fenway Park. “Prince Hal” set down the side in order. With two outs in the bottom of the first, Jimmie Foxx banged a two-base knock high off the Green Monster near the left field foul pole. Hank Greenberg lofted a deep fly to center field but Mickey Mantle tracked it down just shy of the warning track. In the third inning, Newhouser yielded 3 consecutive base hits to Carl Yastrzemski, Frank Robinson and Roger Maris, with hometown hero “Yaz” notching the first tally of the game. “Joltin’” Joe DiMaggio led off the bottom of the frame with a ground ball single to right. The “Yankee Clipper” advanced to second on a passed ball by Elston Howard. Perry threw a fastball high and outside to Harlond Clift. The ball travelled 540 feet into the right field stands for a two-run blast as the AL 1931-1945 crew snatched the lead. Newhouser ran into some trouble in the fifth when he loaded the bases on a single by Howard followed by a pair of walks. “Yaz” tied the game with a sacrifice fly as Howard beat the throw home from Jeff Heath. The rally ended when “The Judge” swung and missed at a breaking ball from “Prince Hal”. Joe A. Berry relieved Newhouser after Maris coaxed a base on balls to commence the sixth inning. He generated a 6-4-3 double play off the bat of Harmon Killebrew and a harmless comebacker by Brooks Robinson. Schoolboy Rowe trotted in from the ‘pen to start the seventh. Howard belted his third hit down the left field line but Charlie Keller held him to a long single. Rod Carew bunted him over to second. Rico Petrocelli was retired on a grounder into the hole at short, but Luke Appling pulled a calf muscle on the play and had to exit the game. Mantle tested Appling’s replacement Lou Boudreau with a slow three-hopper which he flawlessly fielded to complete the inning. Dick Radatz assumed Perry’s position on the bump in the bottom of the seventh and “The Monster” proceeded to retire the side in order. With one out in the top of the eighth, Bill Dickey suffered a lacerated ring finger on his throwing hand attempting to block a ball in the dirt. Rick Ferrell substituted for Dickey and Wally Moses replaced Jeff Heath as the right fielder as the skipper shuffled his lineup. Radatz allowed a base hit by Moses and then plunked Clift with two outs in the ninth. The manager headed out to the mound and signaled for the left-hander, John Hiller. Ferrell lofted a can of corn to right, sending the contest into extra innings. Dean Chance entered the match with two outs and two runners on base in the bottom of the tenth. DiMaggio bounced out to third to end the threat. Moses split the gap in right-center for a two-base knock to start the home half of the eleventh. After Keller’s slow roller to third failed to advance Moses, Chance intentionally walked Clift to get to Ferrell. The backup backstop won the game with a line-drive base hit into the left field corner as Moses scored without a throw.

10 @ 7 – AL1916-30 @ NL1916-30

A battle between clubs featuring stars from the Roaring Twenties commenced at Braves Field in Boston with “Old” Pete Alexander taking the hill for the hometown National League representatives while the Americans countered with Eddie “Knuckles” Cicotte. “Gorgeous” George Sisler walked, went to second on a wild pick-off attempt, and came around on a single to right by Lou Gehrig. The “Iron Horse” repeated the feat in the top of the fifth, plating Tris Speaker on a long single into the right field corner. Cicotte cruised into the fifth, when a pair of mental errors resulted in ducks on the pond. Following a loud single to center by Chuck Klein, Gabby Hartnett dribbled a slow roller towards third. Ossie Bluege tried for the force at second but Klein beat the throw. The next batter, Zack Wheat, tapped one down the line to Gehrig. Instead of stepping on the bag and taking the sure out at first, “Laruppin’ Lou” tried for the 3-6-3 twin-killing. His throw was slightly off-target allowing Hartnett to sneak into second. With the infield playing halfway in, Cicotte induced a 6-4-3 double play off the bat of Max Carey as Klein crossed the plate. Frankie Frisch delivered a base knock to right field, driving in Hartnett to tie the score at 2-all. In the top of the sixth, the Americans reclaimed the lead on a double down the left field line by Tony Lazerri and a subsequent safety by Mickey Cochrane. The skipper called upon southpaw Eppa Rixey to oppose the four consecutive lefties at the top of the AL batting order. “Jephtha” responded with a clean frame in the top of the seventh. Carey started a two-out rally in the home seventh with a base hit and then the “Fordham Flash” drew a walk. “Knuckles” served up a game-tying double to right-center by pinch-hitter Jim Bottomley, who was batting for shortstop Dave Bancroft. The manager bolted out the dugout and called for the right-hander, Firpo Mayberry, to pitch to Rogers Hornsby. “Rajah” promptly supplied a single through the hole between first and second to drive in the go-ahead run. Bill Terry’s soft grounder was fielded cleanly by Gehrig to retire the side. The Americans rallied with two down in the ninth. Rixey issued back-to-back free passes to pinch-hitter Harry Heilmann and the “Grey Eagle”. Charlie Root entered the match and Sisler greeted him with an opposite-field bingo as pinch-runner Willie Kamm scurried home to knot the score at 4-4. Ruth smashed a solid two-hopper to second-sacker Hornsby, who flipped to Bottomley for the final out. Marberry twirled a scoreless frame to send the contest into extra innings. Ray Kremer relieved Root with two out and two runners on base in the top of the tenth. He got Joe Cronin on a high chopper to second. Bottomley reached on a two-base throwing error by Lazzeri to open the bottom of the tenth. Marberry elected to issue a free pass to Hornsby, preferring to pitch to Art Fletcher. The NL skipper sent Kiki Cuyler up to bat for Fletcher, but the move failed to produce the desired result as Cuyler struck out swinging. Hack Wilson grounded into a fielder’s choice, leaving the National League squad with runners at the corners and two outs. The AL manager brought in the left-hander, Garland Braxton, to gain the platoon advantage against Klein. The slugger slapped a worm-killer through the hole between short and third as Bottomley scampered home with the winning run!

9 @ 8 – AL1976-90 @ NL1976-90

Flame-throwing right-handers Dwight Gooden and Roger Clemens squared off at Jarry Park in Montreal. Ryne Sandberg roped a two-base hit off the base of the center field wall with one out in the bottom of the first. “Ryno” moved to third on a groundout to first and then dashed home on a wild pitch by the “Rocket”. The National Leaguers increased their lead to 3-0 when George Foster followed a walk to Mike Schmidt with a 516-foot bomb to straightaway center field. In the bottom of the third, Sandberg hit an innocuous chopper back to the mound, but Clemens’ throw sailed over Eddie Murray’s outstretched glove and into right field for a two-base error. He managed to escape the inning without incident but he encountered further trouble in the fourth. Darryl Strawberry singled and stole second. Andre Dawson belted a 448-foot blast to center, extending the NL advantage to 5-0. Gary Carter ripped a base hit down the left field line. Clemens retired Ozzie Smith and Tony Gwynn, but “Ryno” turned around an inside fastball for a 2-run jack. The AL skipper finally gave Clemens the hook in favor of submarine side-armer Mark Eichhorn. In the top of the seventh, the Americans finally got to “Dr. K”. Jose Canseco and Reggie Jackson coaxed back-to-back walks. Cal Ripken Jr. laced a base hit to right field, driving in “The Chemist” to break up Gooden’s shutout. Murray drew another walk, loading the bases for Jim Rice. Lee Smith jogged in from the ‘pen and proceeded to retire Rice on a short fly ball to right, forcing “Mr. October” to hold up at third. Carlton Fisk skied to medium right field for the final out of the frame. Rollie Fingers hurled a scoreless seventh for the Junior Circuit. Rich Gossage got the call with two runners on base in the bottom of the eighth. “Goose” got “Straw” on a lazy fly to left, “Hawk” on a long fly to center, and pinch-hitter Will “The Thrill” Clark on a three-hopper to second. Bill Caudill strolled out to the mound in the top of the ninth. The “Inspector” pitched a clean frame to secure victory for the NL crew.

Round 2

8 @ 1 – NL1976-90 @ NL1991-05

The second round matchups kicked off at Wrigley Field with Randy D. Johnson opposing Tom Seaver. Tony Gwynn led off with a two-bagger and tallied the first run on a single to center by Ryne Sandberg, who advanced to second on the throw home. The “Big Unit” compounded his problems with a wild pick-off toss which allowed “Ryno” to score! Johnson whiffed the next two batters and escaped without any further damage. Pedro Guerrero, subbing for the left-handed swinging Darryl Strawberry, demolished one of Johnson’s fastballs. The 440-foot bomb left the yard and landed on Waveland Avenue. In the visitor’s third, Gary Carter hit into a fielder’s choice with the bases loaded but everyone was safe. Another fielder’s choice followed by a wild pitch, and the NL 1976-90 held a 6-0 advantage after three turns at-bat. “Tom Terrific” got himself into a bases loaded jam in the bottom of the frame but Eric Davis camped under Barry Bonds’ fly ball to left-center to extinguish the fire. Jose Rijo replaced Johnson to start the fourth inning. Seaver pitched shutout ball into the eighth when he finally tired. Barry Larkin coaxed a leadoff walk. Chipper Jones belted a 509-foot round-tripper over the scoreboard in center, cutting the lead to 6-2. The manager called down to the bullpen and Tug McGraw made his entrance. Bonds slashed a single that landed into front of Eric Davis but Mark McGwire grounded into a twin-killing to quash the rally. Billy Wagner trotted in to replace Rijo, who had thrown 5 scoreless innings in relief of Johnson. “Billy The Kid” allowed a safety to Ozzie Smith but kept the score intact. Bruce Sutter came on to get the final 3 outs. He yielded a 444-foot long distance dedication to Jeff Bagwell with one out but struck out Jim Edmonds to end the game. A shocker in Chi-Town as the eighth-best team based on the regular season standings progressed to the next round while knocking out the top seed in the process!

7 @ 2 – NL1916-30 @ NL2006-20

Clayton Kershaw climbed the hill for the NL 2006-2020 squad at Dodger Stadium as he was pitted against Dolf Luque and the NL1916-1930 crew. Hack Wilson swatted a 536-foot big fly to right field in the top of the fourth. In the home half of the fourth, Bryce Harper rapped a clean single to right and advanced to third on a line-drive double to center off the bat of Hanley Ramirez. “The Pride of Havana” elected to walk Albert Pujols to set up a force at any base. Giancarlo Stanton mauled his next offering, lacing a base hit between third and short which plated a pair of baserunners. Christian Yelich bounced into a 6-4-3 double play, with Pujols moving to third. Luque whiffed David Wright to end the inning. Harper singled again to begin the fifth frame and scooted over to third on a base knock by Stanton with two away. Yelich sliced a ground-rule double into the left field corner, driving “Bam-Bam” in to extend the NL2006-2020 lead to 3-1. Luque received a breather when Wright lined out to third. Burleigh Grimes entered the game in the seventh and pitched two scoreless innings. Kershaw went the distance with a three-hitter as the NL2006-2020 club earned the victory in a low-scoring affair.

6 @ 3 – AL1931-45 @ NL1901-15

The visitors scrambled to recall injury replacements for Luke Appling and Bill Dickey after boarding a train bound from Boston to the Big Apple. Eventually the skipper got a hold of reserves Cecil Travis and Frankie Hayes and told them to meet the club at the Polo Grounds. When game time arrived, both players were suited up and in the lineup preparing to face “Iron Man” Joe McGinnity, while they were planning to counter with Lefty Grove. Charlie Keller put the visiting team on the scoreboard in the top of the second with a mammoth 530-foot blast to left field after a base hit off the bat of Joe DiMaggio. Travis scored on a single by Hank Greenberg in the third frame and the “Yankee Clipper” delivered another safety to put ducks on the pond for “King Kong” with only one out. Charlie Gehringer evaded the tag on Keller’s sacrifice fly, extending the AL1931-1945 advantage to 4-0. Harlond Clift laced a solid single to left, plating another run. McGinnity got the hook after issuing an intentional pass to Jeff Heath as the NL skipper elected to bring George McQuillan in from the bullpen. Hayes had a chance to put the game out of reach, but he bounced out to shortstop, bringing the rally to an abrupt end. Grove toiled through the third inning. He opened the frame with a walk to Johnny Evers and then yielded consecutive singles to Johnny Kling and Jimmy Sheckard to load the bases. Cy Seymour smacked a hard grounder between the hole at first and second, plating two runs for the National Leaguers. Honus Wagner thrashed a base hit to left, plating Sheckard. “Cactus” Gavvy Cravath rapped into a 6-4-3 double play to suppress the uprising. Ed Konetchy whacked a two-out solo shot into the left-center field bleachers in the fourth, trimming the Americans lead to 5-4. Grove averted potential disaster in the fifth after loading the bases with a single, fielder’s choice and an intentional pass to Wagner with one away. Cravath hit a one-hop bullet back to the box. Grove fired home for the force play, and Hayes relayed to first in plenty of time to complete the 1-2-3 double play! Mel Harder entered the contest in relief of Grove to begin the sixth inning. McQuillan and Harder matched zeroes into the ninth frame. Larry Doyle, batting for Johnny Evers, grounded out to second base for the final out as the AL 1931-1945 squad claimed the win by a one-run margin. In the defeat, McQuillan hurled 6 1/3 innings of 1-hit ball.

13 @ 5 – NL1961-75 @ AL1946-60

The NL 1961-1975 crew jumped on Early Wynn for 3 runs in the opening frame of their second round contest. Joe L. Morgan reached on a fielding error by Al Rosen and then pilfered second and third. Hank Aaron drew a two-out walk. Willie McCovey lifted a towering fly ball down the right field line which settled just inside the foul pole and into the third row at old Yankee Stadium for a 322-foot four-bagger. Bob Gibson started the contest for the National Leaguers, staked to a 3-0 lead. “Little Joe” ignited a rally in the top of the third with a single followed by a two-base knock to deep left off the bat of Willie Mays. “Hammerin’ Hank” laced an opposite-field single to drive in Morgan and “Stretch” lofted a sacrifice fly to right, scoring the “Say Hey Kid”. Wynn recovered to strike out Dick Allen but the Nationals extended their advantage to 5-0. Ted Williams served a base hit into left field leading off the bottom of the fourth, which broke up “Gibby’s” no-hit bid. In the fifth frame, “Hammer” blasted a 2-run shot over the center field wall to pad the National Leaguers already comfortable lead to 7-zip. Ellis Kinder sauntered in to relieve Wynn in the top of the sixth. “Hoot” was cruising along with a one-hit shutout through the sixth, but he injured his index finger fielding a comebacker off the bat of “Teddy Ballgame”. Ted W. Abernathy got loose in the bullpen and entered the match in the seventh in Gibson’s place. Abernathy fashioned two scoreless innings and Phil “The Vulture” Regan closed out the game with a 1-2-3 ninth inning as the National Leaguers held the AL 1946-1960 squad to one safety.

Round 3

13 @ 8 – NL1961-75 @ NL1976-90

Hall of Famers Steve Carlton and Fergie Jenkins took their warm-up tosses at Jarry Park as the third round of the tournament commenced. The visitors placed runners on first and second on base knocks by Pete Rose and Willie Mays in the opening inning, but “Lefty” induced a 6-4-3 double play off the bat of Hank Aaron to quash the threat. Willie McCovey started the second inning off with a bang as he belted a mammoth 537-foot homer beyond the swimming pool over the right field fence. Gary Carter clobbered an off-speed delivery from “Fly” to knot the score at 1-all in the third. Andre “The Hawk” Dawson had to exit the contest after a tailing fastball from Jenkins plunked him in the ribcage with two away in the fifth. Pinch-runner Eric Davis immediately moved into scoring position when he stole second, but Carter grounded out to short and the score remained tied at 1-1. Carlton walked Johnny Bench to start the seventh and Clemente reached on a fielder’s choice when “Lefty” fielded a comebacker but threw late to second base in an attempt to force Bench. Bill Caudill jogged in from the bullpen to extinguish a two-on, no out situation. Willie “Pops” Stargell, batting for Dick Groat, gave Caudill’s heater a good ride but Tony Gwynn flagged it down near the warning track. Rose flew out to Gwynn near the right field line for out #2, leaving the job to Joe L. Morgan. “Little Joe” hit a sharp single between third and short but George Foster quickly retrieved the ball so Bench had to hold up at third. Sacks juiced for the “Say Hey Kid”… Caudill threw four wide to force in the go-ahead run! The skipper called upon Lee Smith and he retired Aaron on a grounder to first base. In the bottom of the eighth, Ozzie Smith legged out an infield hit and Tony Gwynn bounced one towards Orlando Cepeda at first. “Baby Bull” tried to get the lead runner but the “Wizard” slid safely under the tag. Mike G. Marshall got the call with two runners on and two away. Keith Hernandez slapped a hard ground ball to the shortstop, Maury Wills, who fielded and fired in plenty of time to end the threat. Tug McGraw worked around an infield hit to Morgan in the visitor’s ninth. Marshall walked Strawberry with two down in the bottom of the ninth, but pinch-hitter Pedro Guerrero hit an easy two-hopper to Morgan to close out the contest. The #13 seed advanced to the Finals!

6 @ 2 – AL1931-45 @ NL2006-20

Roy Halladay earned the starting assignment against Dizzy Trout in the semifinal matchup at Dodger Stadium. “Doc” allowed a leadoff single to Cecil Travis and subsequently walked Charlie Gehringer, bringing up the heart of the AL1931-1945 batting order in the top of the first. Jimmie Foxx grounded into a 6-4-3 twin-killing and Hank Greenberg skied out to center to avert the potential for a big inning. In the home half of the first, Hanley Ramirez ripped a ground ball single to left with one out. Albert Pujols hit into a fielder’s choice and then Trout issued free passes to Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich to load the bases with two outs. David Wright took an inside curve off the left elbow, forcing in a run. Andrew McCutchen drove a long fly into the left field corner, but Charlie Keller settled under it for the final out. Jeff Heath singled to start the visitor’s third, and he scored all the way from first on a double up the left-center field gap by Travis. Clint Brown entered the match after Trout walked Utley leading off the bottom of the seventh. He struck out pinch-hitter Cody Bellinger then induced a 6-4-3 double play off the bat of Bryce Harper to maintain the tie score. Aroldis Chapman relieved Halladay following a pinch-hit single to center by Earl Averill. Bobby Doerr, batting for Travis, flew out to right-center field. Gehringer hit a slow roller to first which Pujols scooped up and touched the bag to retire the side. Brown served up a gopher ball into the left field bleachers with two outs in the eighth as Stanton golfed a low fastball out of the yard. Joe A. Berry jogged in from the ‘pen and got Yelich to pop up to the catcher, but the NL2006-2020 squad took a 2-1 lead into the ninth. Kenley Jansen trotted in to face Foxx, Greenberg and Joe DiMaggio. “Double X” started the rally with a long single to center and he promptly replaced by pinch-runner Wally Moses. “Hammerin’ Hank” sliced a one-hopper to Pujols who initiated a 3-6-3 double play. “The Yankee Clipper” was thrown out by Hanley Ramirez from deep shortstop on a bang-bang play at first.

Round 4

13 @ 2 – NL1961-75 @ NL2006-20

Jacob deGrom and Sandy Koufax were called upon to secure the final victory for their respective teams as the crowd filed into Dodger Stadium. The NL 2006-2020 squad put ducks on the pond against “The Left Arm of God” in the bottom of the second, but he escaped unscathed when Willie McCovey fielded Chase Utley’s hot smash and fired home for a force out followed by a strikeout of Buster Posey. “Stretch” was drilled by a deGrom slider in the fourth inning, knocking the potential tournament MVP out of the contest. To that point, McCovey clubbed three home runs in 10 at-bats while driving in 6 runs. Pujols aka “The Machine” crushed a 492-foot long ball over the wall in left-center to put deGrom and Company ahead by one. In the top of the fifth, Johnny Bench rocked a long two-base hit off the center field fence. Roberto Clemente stroked one of his 4 singles on the day to score Bench with the tying run. Both deGrom and Koufax showed signs of fatigue and they were replaced after seven frames. Craig Kimbrel whiffed two of the three batters that he faced in the top of the eighth. Phil “The Vulture” Regan entered the match in the bottom of the inning and he was greeted by a titanic 484-foot clout, a no-doubter by Kris Bryant to surrender the go-ahead run. Aroldis Chapman came on to close out the game in the ninth. Lou Brock pinch-ran after Clemente slapped a two-out safety to right, but Buster Posey gunned him down attempting to swipe second to seal the 2-1 victory! Jacob deGrom (15 IP, 1 ER) and Willie McCovey (3 HR, 6 RBI) shared Most Valuable Player honors.

Graphics – [4] Earl Weaver Baseball II introduced the ability to view the game from innumerable camera angles. The user can choose to zoom in/out, focus on the ball or a specific fielder and adjust the camera angle or position. Alternatively you can turn the Director off which limits the view to the behind the plate / full-batter view (with no runners on base) along with three preset overview cameras. The game features fully animated and fairly representative depictions of the pitchers, fielders, batters and baserunners performing their various tasks. Sliding baserunners kick up dirt, the seams on the ball are visible when the pitch is delivered, umpires signal safe or out. On the downside, the player sizes are sometimes distorted based on the play type or camera angle. In particular I noticed that the catcher emerged in front of home plate on a bunt or slow-moving infield chopper, he appeared to be half the height of the batter-runner. When a fielder attempts to scoop a low throw, they also appear to be smaller than the baserunner. My recollection is that the fielders remain upright on all plays (no diving stops in the infield or all-out attempts to snare drives in the outfield).  The pitcher’s last name, actual ERA and number of pitches thrown appear in the upper-half of the screen upon the start of each at-bat while the batter’s last name, batting average and run rating are displayed at the same time in the lower section.  Then the game status is presented briefly along the bottom of the screen prior to the pitch, consisting of the current score, inning, number of outs, and the ball-strike count. Between innings, the scoreboard appears along with the batters due up in the next half-inning.

Sound – [3] The ballpark organist ripped through “Charge!” and a series of ballpark favorites between innings and during appropriate lulls in the action. A hit batsman provokes a “bonk” sound effect immediately followed by chirping birds. Other in-game sound effects encompass the crack of the bat, ball hitting the glove and umpire calls. Crowd noise is noticeably absent.

Strategy – [4] The manager(s) can toggle the following options on or off through the use of the strategy menu: offense – aggressive baserunning, bunt, hit & run, run & hit, take (don’t swing), leadoff, steal second, steal third, steal home, double steal, squeeze, run (on contact from) third; defense – confer (visit mount), guard (the lines), hold, infield shift, infield depth, outfield shift, outfield depth, pitch around, pitch out, charge first, charge third, give run. You can also “Ask Earl” for advice about the current situation or switch to the lineup screen where you select pinch-hitters, pinch-runners, defensive replacements and relievers. You can warm-up relief pitchers and check their status here as well. I found it necessary to manually keep track of my substitutions as I was not prompted between innings if one of my pinch-hitters or pinch-runners were about to play out of position. It is also essential to monitor status of your bullpen as your relievers can become fatigued if you allow them to warm up indefinitely.

Artificial Intelligence – [5] Based on the additional teams that I constructed for my “All-Time” league, I created 8 new manager profiles. The user can modify any of the 19 managerial tendencies utilizing the “quick” and/or “zoom in” options. The quick edit offers a scale of 6 choices: Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Average, Often, Very Often. Zoom-in editing permits more granular selections based on a percentage, inning or rating although I found that Zoom-In caused the game to crash within my DosBox session. The game comes with built-in profiles for several classic managers. The list below indicates the managers that I selected for each All-Time Team and an asterisk denotes the skippers that had pre-configured profiles within EWB II.

American League All-Time Division National League All-Time Division
AL 1901-1915 – Connie Mack* NL 1901-1915 – Fred Clarke
AL 1916-1930 – Miller Huggins NL 1916-1930 – John McGraw*
AL 1931-1945 – Joe McCarthy* NL 1931-1945 – Charlie Grimm*
AL 1946-1960 – Casey Stengel* NL 1946-1960 – Leo Durocher*
AL 1961-1975 – Al Lopez NL 1961-1975 – Walter Alston*
AL 1976-1990 – Earl Weaver* NL 1976-1990 – Davey Johnson
AL 1991-2005 – Joe Torre NL 1991-2005 – Bobby Cox
AL 2006-2020 – Joe Girardi NL 2006-2020 – Tony La Russa

 

During my review of the simulated season stats, I noted the over-use of the bullpen staff on several teams, particularly in the teams from the last 5 decades. However it is possible that this trend could be at least partially due to the pitch counts selected in the manager profiles as I configured the managers of the contemporary squads with the setting to remove pitchers after 110 pitches. Moreover I limited most of the active rosters to 4 relievers, thereby restricting the ability of the computer manager to rest his bullpen arms during the course of the season. The All-Time League also utilized the designated hitter in all contests, reducing the need to deploy pinch-hitters.

Box Score – [4] The first page encompasses the team names and line score for the contest along with the winning/losing/saving pitchers, double plays, game-winning RBI, time of game, wind speed and direction. A “how they scored” summary shows the inning, event, home run distance (if applicable) and the score of the game after each event occurred. The box score includes all of the standard categories. The offense is listed in their proper batting order. I noticed that pinch-hitters and pinch-runners that are replaced prior to taking the field on defense are incorrectly listed in the defensive position of the player that they substituted for, instead of “PH” or “PR”. Pitchers are enumerated in the order in which they appeared in the ball game as well. Team totals appear at the bottom of each batting and pitching statistical column.

Rosters – [5] – Each team has a 25-man active roster and there are no specified rules regarding the number of position players vs. pitchers that you can carry. EWB II incorporates a reserve list for every team with no limits and each league has a free agent pool in which you can add or drop players. The computer managers do not access the reserve list to my knowledge, so adjusting your league rosters to accommodate injuries and ineffective players is a manual process. The user can configure one or two leagues containing one or two divisions with up to 8 teams per division. Players can be traded among teams and a draft function is included as well.

Statistics – [5] – Users have the option to modify their player’s name, primary and secondary positions, batting hand, skin tone, year, ID # and salary. The standard batting, pitching and fielding statistics are adjustable and you may auto-generate or assign various ratings to each player. The ratings are scaled from 1 (worst) to 10 (best) comprising Power, Hit & Run, Bunt, Runs, Range, Arm and Durability for batters while pitchers are evaluated on Speed, Control, Fatigue, Bunt, Hold and Durability. Player’s status can be set to Active, Reserve, Disabled List (DL), Farm, AAA, AA or Free. You have the ability to enter split stats (vs. left-handers and vs. right-handers) to further enhance the realism of simulated seasons. The player editor displays both historical and accumulated statistics for the individual that you’re currently viewing or modifying. Team nicknames can be revised and you may assign a manager and ballpark to specific teams.  The Commissioner’s Disk provides a utility to view or print a variety of reports. You can specify minimum # of at-bats, innings pitched, list length and sort order. Several season disks were available for purchase from Electronic Arts. .

Usage/Injuries/Ejections[4] – Players can be injured during the course of the game (based on their injury rating) and fatigue is also a factor for pitchers. Injured players are listed in the lineup screen as “Out for ## Games” while fatigued players are “Resting for ## Games”. You can opt to allow resting and/or injured players to be available through the Ground Rules or Schedule Settings screens. The Durability and Fatigue ratings figure heavily in the number of games each player may be unavailable. The manager will come out to argue close plays, resulting in an animated discussion with the umpire but the skipper and his players cannot be ejected from a ball game. The computer manager will substitute a healthy player from the bench. However the game does not recall players from the reserve list for an extended injury. If you’re so inclined, you will need to monitor and manipulate the extended (reserve) roster while tracking injuries on your own.

Ballparks / Park Factors – [5] – 30 current and old-time ballparks come with the game along with 2 fantasy stadiums (Homer Heaven and Weaver Stadium). One of my favorite aspects of the EWB series is the ability to modify the existing parks or create your own park from scratch. This utility allows the user to assign a stadium name, determine if the field is natural grass or artificial turf, indoor (domed) or outdoor construction, alter the fence heights and distances, allocate the dimensions of foul territory, primary color, and the wind characteristics (speed, percentage and prevailing direction). Although park factors are not specifically mentioned in the manual, the physics model does take the dimensions, turf type and wind factors into account.

Commentary – [1] Commentary is limited to the umpire’s calls such as “Ball”, “Strike”, “Out!” and “Outta There!”

 

 

Scale:  Ratings from 1 (worst) to 5 (best)

 

Total Score: 40 out of 50

 

Observations

 

Despite the variety of enhancements to its predecessor, EWB II falls a bit short of the extremely high bar set by the original. The resulting effort still has plenty to offer and I highly recommend tracking down this game if you don’t already have it in your software library!
