This game features all-new player models created with 3-D CyberScan technology for one of the most realistic representations of player faces ever seen. There are 10 game modes for great depth of replay. Modes include Exhibition, Season, Career, Franchise, Expansion, All-Star Game, Series, Manager, Home Run Derby, and Batting Practice. Franchise mode allows users to play and build their favorite team for up to 20 consecutive seasons. All-new Expansion Play lets you choose a city, stadium, and team logo and add that team into the major leagues. And the Expansion Draft lets you draft from a pool of unprotected players, and build a team from free agents and minor-leaguers.
There is a three-man broadcast booth with Bob Brenly, Thom Brennaman, and Steve Lyons, for in-depth commentary. The Cooperstown Hall of Fame team features Sluggers from the past like Mike Schmidt, Reggie Jackson, and Yogi Berra. All 30 major-league teams and over 900 players are represented, all with official stadiums, logos, and uniforms. There are over 50 stadiums to choose from, including eight classic stadiums and 10 expansion stadiums.
