MVP takes on the Minor Leagues

EA's baseball game will determine the score of the first two innings of a contest between the KC T-Bones and Schaumberg Flyers.


Take me out to the ballgame, and let me play a few innings while you're at it. Minor League baseball clubs are known to have some wacky promotions, but the July 16 game at Community America Ballpark in Kansas City, Kansas, is truly unique. Two gamers will get the opportunity to play the Xbox version of Electronic Arts' MVP Baseball 2005 on the park's big screen to determine the score of the first two innings of a game between the home field T-Bones and visiting Schaumberg Flyers. After two "virtual" innings, the real teams will take the field and continue the game where MVP left off. The gamers will be selected through a tournament being held at local CompUSAs, which are co-sponsoring the event.
