Subject: I have achieved a lifelong video game goal!!!!
I've been playing this game periodically for the past 4 or 5 months - probably 100 games or so and have developed a few strategies. One, try to hit the ball to the third base side. Even if the ball is fielded by the 3rd baseman, odds are your batter will run out the throw. Two, be patient and look for pitching patterns to predict pitches. The computer will give you walks. Three, you can force the computer to make throws if you fake run to a base and that will open opportunities for other runners to advance. Four, when pitching, I pretty much pitch fast and hard inside while moving the ball trying to jam the batter. Sometimes, this leads to a pop fly to dead center which will be caught for an out and if a runner is already on base, he will be running and you can double him up.
I decided to get a game in yesterday and I was on a hot hitting streak. I'm up 10-1 after 3 and was expecting one of the standard computer 7-8 run rallies, but it never came. Heading into the 7th, I was up 14-4. The last 3 innings, I put up 13 and ended up winning 27-12 for my first win over the computer and I achieved a personal video game goal of beating this game. My record must be something like 1-150. There are a few cool screens at the end of the game including a misspelling which fits in line with the backstory of the development of this game. I'll try to post them somewhere and provide the links if anyone's interested.
