ESPN Major League Baseball Announced
"Baseball fans instantly recognize the names of Jon Miller and Karl Ravech," says Greg Thomas, president of ESPN Videogames. "Jon is considered one of today's best baseball commentators and his voice instantly registers a comfortable warmth for baseball fans when they listen to him call the balls and strikes. Meanwhile, Karl brings a distinguished poise to his broadcasts for both ESPN's Baseball Tonight and SportsCenter. Together, they bring a new level of ESPN integration into our game."
In addition to adding these two ESPN heavyweights, ESPN Major League Baseball will feature brand new ESPN integration elements to enhance the broadcast atmosphere. New television-style cut scenes and dynamic close-ups build the drama of the game. ESPN-styled wipes, overlays, the innovative K-Zone and GameCast are additions gamers will also see this spring. K-Zone is an exciting, exclusive visual tool integrated by ESPN used to visually create each batter's unique strike zone. GameCast is another innovative tool that gives the user an in-depth, pitch-by-pitch analysis of simulated games, and also allows the player to join in a simulated game in progress at any time. Developed by Blue Shift Inc., ESPN Major League Baseball is scheduled for release on both the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox . ESPN Major League Baseball and other ESPN Videogames titles are produced by Visual Concepts -Sega's sports studio.
