Our plans for Champ Sports Baseball include: Multiple built-in teams (16 is the current # we're hoping to include), including unique team colors, lineups, etc. Team editor for name/uniform colors, etc. Different field types (artificial turf vs. grass) Multiple game modes Exhibition mode: play with any two teams Tournament mode: choose a team and compete in a tournament-style march to the championship! Practice mode: hone your skills with batting, fielding and pitching practice Multiple play modes: 1 player vs. computer 2 players vs. and team modes Multiple screen views: Pitcher/catcher Infield view Multiple outfield views (left, left center, center, right center and right field) Other: Double and triple plays Infield fly rule Bunts, sacrifice flies Steals, hit and runs, pickoff plays, pitch outs Left/right handed pitchers and batters, plus switch hitters Player skills (throwing, fielding, hitting, running) Throwing and fielding errors Game stats Development is in the early stages (field views, ball physics, fielding, scoreboard, throwing to bases, etc. are almost done) and we hope to have a playable demo sometime this summer.

The solid red player - the catcher - shows player that has the ball: Left-center view. The ball and shadow can be seen around 2nd base.
