This site has a two-fold purpose. First, to shed some light on the greatest baseball video game ever created, Tecmo’s Bad News Baseball. Bad News Baseball was originally released in Japan as Gekitō!! Stadium (or Fierce Fighting!! Stadium) on December 15, 1989. It was released in the U.S. in June of 1990. The game remains one of the most under-appreciated sports titles on the NES. You’d be hard-pressed to find better graphics in an NES sports title. The more popular RBI Baseball series pales in comparison to Bad News Baseball in this department.

More details to follow…

Second, I’m using it to track ongoing competition with my brother in our (almost) daily games. We’ve made things interesting by ‘wagering’ on the games with added incentives. Hopefully this gives others some creative ideas on how to breathe new life into Bad News Baseball!
