Gamestock: Baseball 2001

Microsoft offers a demonstration of the game and some screens.


Microsoft's upcoming Baseball 2001 will be the first baseball game from the company that uses the Baseball Mogul stats engine. You'll be able to manage all the official teams of the MLB through a career mode, as well as step onto the field for some action-baseball gameplay.

Team management will include roster changing, trading, handling of finances, overseeing the farm system, and scouting. Even ticket prices will be a part of the team-management equation. If your team starts losing, you'll see revenue slip, and that could hurt your ability to sign players, leading to a downward spiral that a few real baseball teams face today.

Baseball 2001 will feature the commentary of Arizona Diamondbacks announcer Thom Brennaman, and it will be endorsed by Boston Red Sox shortstop, Nomar Garciaparra.
