It involves attacking, defending, and conquering every stadium across the United States. It might take a long time to finish so developers included a quick 3-inning games for a faster pace.
Road to the Show
Road to the Show Mode will give players an opportunity to walk the path to the Hall of Fame. They have to choose one character who they will play for the rest of the game. It will give them choices that can take them into different and new directions.
Players have to go through a non-linear storytelling game mode where they would grow stronger, faster, smarter, and more capable. They have to start as a no-name kid before they eventually become legends.
Instead of becoming a baseball athlete, players have to fill in the shoes of the boss. They can choose to take care of the coaching, player development, general managing, and even auto manage the rest.
Players basically have the power over the team and can make decisions that can affect the team. Players can fire, hire, scout, draft, trade, and tirade while behind the scenes. Its Critical Situations feature will allow them to have a direct effect in important plays of a match without playing a full game.
