    No because the nearest one would be way too far away, but my dad got off work early to pick up me and my brother from school to play the Nintendo 64 at Toys R Us

    Late follow up, but you could ride a starter so long in this game and all the relievers outside of closers were trash

    i remember being so hyped for this game after reading a Nintendo Power about it and then being totally disappointed when it felt like even Barry Sanders was running on ice

    its passing gameplay was way better than madden's at the time, though

    I still have wet dreams about MVP 2005. I played 2 full seasons, every game, including playoffs and some minor league games while deployed in 2005.

    That Marlins squad was so much fun with the young pitchers and a young Miggy with Pierre leading off.

    Dude I made a custom team called the Omaha Umbrays and this was also before I had ever lived in Nebraska or knew where Omaha was. Yes that was my attempt at Hombres as an 8 year old. The Umbrays were stacked though. We had Barry Sanders and Brett Favre

    I’m not sure if you eat dingleberries for every meal or just as a snack while you play MLB video games.

    Man i wish i had the patience for mlb games. The show is legitimately great every year, but god damn that shit takes too damn long, i never remember to warm up relievers, and i swing at every pitch. Its important that i stress every pitch. If i managed to make it through a whole season theres no doubt in my mind i'd have single digit walks as a team if you exclude any ibb.

    Shits fun though so i pick it up every other year or so.

    Loved this game so much. Wish I still had my Sega so I could play. My brother in law still has all his old game systems and this game so whenever we get up to visit, I get to play.

    Look at this Banty rooster motherfucker.

    In my youth I didn’t have a choice in games, I made due with what I had and learned to love them.

    I played NHL Breakaway 98 for like 2 years before I even scored a goal.

    my (only) favorite thing about NFL QB Club for N64 was if you spammed the speed boost button your RB/WR would inevitably drop down and pull up lame with a blown hammy

    I used to draft my teams and would always end up with Pierre, Carl Crawford and Chone Figgins (who was a beast in that game). Stolen bases for days.

    Those guys and Greinke with his 60mph curve ball were the most fun sports video game characters/players this side of Bo or Vick.

    Marlins were the second best team in the game. I always played with the A's. They had Rich Harden and Barry Zito and both dominated. Had Eric Byrnes who ran like a 4.2 40 in that game and Eric Chavez who hit bombs repeatedly. He was also known as the vacuum at 3B because anything hit over there was an out. Don't forget Scott Hatteberg who was affectionately known as Shatteberg.

    You Owe Me An IOU and Chocolate Girl are also two of the greatest songs ever written.

    I liked the old RBI baseballs better than The Show.

    I did like a baseball game EA put out like 10 years ago where you could guess the pitch based on the color in the pitchers hand, can’t remember the name?
