Description Edit | History

Pursue the Pennant was originally produced in 1985. The game was printed in a large box format with a limited print run of 5000 collectors copy of the game. The game included player statistics cards for the 1984 season. Cards for the 1984 season are elongated with room to place a baseball card picture of the player at the top of the card. The game was demonstrated at the Gencon Game fair with Topps baseball card pictures of the players. The 1985 game edition came with two sets of rules a basic rule book and an advanced rule book.

The Basic Game includes: range and fielding, stealing and base running, sacrifice and suicide squeeze, wild pitches and passed balls, ball park effects and wild plays and injuries. The advanced game added throwing arms, advanced sacrifice, suicide squeeze and bunting for a hit, ball park effects, clutch hitting, the ability to get out of a jam, hit and run, pitcher's fatigue, pitcher's rest, infield in and limitations on play.

Products published for the 1985 Rules:
Core Deluxe Game
35 Player Rookie Card Set

A newsletter was also published for the game as well.

The 1986 season saw a change in the rules along with the modification of the player cards and box size. The box was reduced in size to roughly 10x10 inches but is still an irregular board game size. The player cards were reduced in size to mimic baseball collector cards. No pictures of the players are on the cards. Changes in the game do not permit the 1984 season cards to be utilized with the 1986 ruleset and above.

The 1987 Edition Included a Rules update: Weather Effects Chart, At the Wall Chart, a modification of the Coach's Choice Chart that includes "Cut-off Play Option", Jump Chart and Stealing Chart modifications as well as changes to the Ball park Effect Chart and Infield and Outfield Range Charts. The Close Play was also added. Player Cards from the 1986 season can be used.
