Radio Baseball is a text-based baseball coaching simulator. Each team has a list of players, and as the coach, it's up to the player to assign them to field positions. The game itself is a fairly automatic and graphicless representation of a baseball. The coach has some influence over the game's proceedures such as being able to call in pinch players and suggest strategies for the ballplayers to undertake. However during each action, the player's individual skills value are applied against one another and the resulting game algorithim determines the success or failure of various plays.
The game is standard baseball with each game lasting nine innings and each inning lasting until a team is penalized with 3 "outs".
One of Electronic Arts' oldest sport releases and one of the few sports simulations it ever published, Radio Baseball is a solid baseball simulation from the now-defunct Diamond Edge Software. Despite its age, the game holds up very well with time, thanks to excellent team choices (you can choose Greats and Superstars teams that span 5 decades), strong coaching options, and good computer AI.
The game begin with you choosing the two sides (either or both can be human or computer-controlled), which players suffer injury this season, which pitchers need to rest, and off you go to the diamond. In-game choices are excellent: you can even choose whether to let players use their own judgment as to whether or not they will try to steal when on base, guard/unguard the lines, change fielding options, and so on. League games can be saved to disk and continued at your leisure, although sadly the game doesn't keep many detailed statistics. The fact that it's a text-only simulation may also alienate fans of action-oriented baseball sims. Overall, though, Radio Baseball is a great simulation that sets the stage for successive baseball sims, and predates Dynamix' solid Front Page Sport Baseball by almost a decade.
