Gameplay of Baseball.

Baseball (ベースボール Bēsubōru?) is a sports game originally released on the Famicom in Japan on December 7, 1983, and on the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America on October 18, 1985 and in Europe on September 1, 1986. An arcade version of the game, VS. Baseball, was released in 1984 for Japan and North America and in 1986 for Europe. It is a video game adaption of the real-life baseball sport.

Each game begins with the first team pitching a ball to the other team, who is adjacent to the pitching player. The adjacent player, referred to as the "Batter", must swing their bat in order to strike the ball back. If successful, the pitching team will attempt to catch the ball, which denotes how many bases the batter can run to, gaining one run after running from three bases back to the home base. If the ball goes out of the park or the baserunner can reach each base before returning to home plate in one attempt, a Home Run occurs, and all players currently stationed on a base will automatically run to Home Base, gaining one run for each baserunner plus the batter. Alternatively, if the batter fails to hit the ball and the ball passed the strike zone, or the player swung and missed at a pitch, they will receive a strike, and if they gain three strikes, the batter is out of the game. If the ball doesn’t pass the strike zone and the player doesn’t swing, they will receive a ball. If the pitcher pitches four balls, the batter gets to freely walk to first base. When three batters are given outs, the teams switch roles, and the process repeats.
