This is a simulation of a nine-inning baseball game with you controlling the pitcher when your team has the field and controlling the batter when you are up to bat. The simulation stops at nine innings, hence, it may be a tie game; however, that has proved to occur remarkably few times.
The game published was written for DIGITAL EduSystem 15/30/35 and actually consists of two programs, one which prints the rules chained to he second program which plays the game. "NOLINE" must be given before running to prevent overflow. Other BASIC compilers will require conversion of the alphabetic string input statements to a compatible format.
Four separate versions of computerized baseball were submitted for consideration in the book - this was the one selected.
