Back cover blurb: "All the action and excitement of the major leagues comes alive as each player manages his own BIG LEAGUE BASEBALL team in this challenging new game.
As the manager, you choose the lineup, call the pitches, decide when to hit and when to take, and call for hit-and-run and steal plays. The result of each pitch and each hit is given on the game's unique calculator. All results are based on averages of major league play.
All the strategy and skill involved in a professional baseball game combine with luck to make this a fascinating game as it's 1, 2, 3 strikes you're out -- that's the old ball game!"
