Sony's 989 Sports returns to the diamond to pitch the "2004" installment of its Major League Baseball series, available for both PS2 and the hardy, original PlayStation. This year's game brings home a variety of modes, offering Exhibition, Season, Franchise, and Career play, as well as Spring Training. Authentic teams and rosters are based on the most recent (2003) season. Games can be played in re-creations of any of the 30 active MLB parks, each with city-specific details such as weather effects, fireworks, and jumbotrons. Player animations were built from consultations with, and motion-captures of, notable stars of the sport, including Roger Clemens, Trevor Hoffman, Tim Hudson, Tony Gwynn, and Mo Vaughn.
