Triple Play Baseball brings hard-hitting baseball action to life by taking advantage of the raw power of the PlayStation2. It's officiallylicensed by Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association, so included are all the Big League teams, players, and stadiums--even the newly built Miller Park in Milwaukee and PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Three-time National League Manager of the Year Dusty Baker provided design input, resulting in an authentic gaming experience. The improved pitcher-batter interface features pitching and batting cursors and a visible strike zone. Players will enjoy the enhanced fielding control with one-button throws and power sensitivity. Toronto Blue Jays manager Buck Martinez provides color commentary, and Sean McDonough handles the play-by-play. Chuck D, Vitamin C, and Fastball laid down the grooves for the soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars It seems a little rushed March 20, 2001
Triple Play Baseball has been my favorite since the first one. I've always thought that it was the closest thing to playing baseball inside. In this version for the PS2 I've noticed a few changes
1. Graphics. Pro: Unbeleivable detail with stadiums, you can almost see individual blades of grass. The crowds actually move in this version.The facial features of the players are much improved. And the Gameplay is extremely smooth. Con: Other than the faces, I cannot tell the difference between players like I could in previous versions. You cannot change the batting camera angle, there is just one camera for instant replays, and one camera angle for feilding.
2: Big League Challenge. It's about the same as in TP2001, with the exception of that they took away the Derby with the crazy stadiums and targets. You can no longer hit homeruns in your bedroom. That was a feature I really enjoyed.
3: Rewards and points. I'm actually happy that they removed the points and rewards, I thought they took away from the game. On the PS2, there is nothing to be unlocked anywhere.
4: Injuries and Fatigue. Once again there are no injuries, and now there is kind of no fatigue. What that means is, your starting pitcher will lose speed and accuracy when he tires, but there is no way to warm up another pitcher, all the bullpen pitchers are already warmed up.
5: Batting and Pitching. It's almost a completely new system, but once you get used to it, it's pretty cool. Although I miss having a normal button and a power button for batting and throwing, everything is now done by the pressure sensative X button (pitching power, batting, and throwing power). I still find myself trying to hit the square button to hit a homerun and watching the pitch sail past me.
6: Baserunning.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Could have or Should have" been better March 19, 2001
By A Customer
I rented the newest baseball and was slightly let down compare to other EA sports titles such as Madden 2001 and Nhl 2001. Those are definite 5 stars, even 6 stars. This game, like NBA 2001, was rushed to the shelves.
This review is written after approx 15 hours of game time.
I'm basing alot of my arguement of what I've seen EA Sports has produced in the past year for PS2 or what Sega Dreamcast did right with World Series 2K1.
Cons: There lack of attention to detail, overall. All the players look the same except for skin tones and a few different facial hair set-ups, there body proportions are also lacking, Mo Vaughn is the same size as Johnny Damon. Randy Johnson with short hair??? Camera view should have had a few more options. No 360 degree rotating camera view like all other EA sports games. for replays. When they do zoom in for a cut away, the players mouths look crazy glued shut, no arguing like in FIFA soccer or NHL 2001, that missing. Distinctive Batting styles like Griffey, Bonds, Bagwell, Sheffield, Batista not included, only McGwire's looks anything like his own. It takes away from the realism 128 bit technology should be able to have captured. What they should have done was do more cutaways of ball going to certain players like outfielders, more of a "telecast kind of feel" that's what was successful with World Series 2k1. I'm not being picky, just honest, this could have been an awesome game if the details were captured.
Pro: Overall the game plays very well, responsive button controls , from pressure sentitive throwing to using the directional circle "Sweet Spot" to hit the ball either on the ground, in the air, or line drives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Game April 18, 2001
By A Customer
This game is better than everone says it is. Although it isn't perfect, its still a great overall baseball game. The graphics are great, and the player models look very realistic (minus the fact that all the bodies are pretty much the same size). The AI is very good, and the computer doesn't cheat at all like it usually does in other sports games. The Big League Challenge feature puts a new spin on the home run derby, and tournaments in this mode keep me and my friends busy for hours.
However, like I said, this game is not perfect. I have found four main cons to this game. 1) All the player models are the same size 2) The fielding indicator which tells you where to go to catch the ball is unnessecarilly big, and can sometimes distract you 3) I am a Red Sox fan, and two key players on the team, Brian Daubach and Lou Merloni were excluded from the game, and 4) Some minor slowdown in between cut scenes, but this does not affect gameplay at all.
Overall, I would say that this is a very good baseball game, and is well worth the money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible baseball game March 22, 2001
Triple Play is a horrible game in almost every sence.The batting is way to easy, you'll find that even with the worst hitter on your team you can easily hit above .400. I like simulation type sports games that actually have reasonable stats and games that are realistic. The games are high scoring events were you might score 13 and the cpu will score 10. Homeruns come way to easy in this game and a guy like Pokey Reese can hit just as many homeruns as Griffey. The feilding is maybe the worst i have seen in any baseball game and balls that are hit in to the out feild that are not around the player are pretty much un-catchable. The types of hits that come off the bat are very limited with mostly line drives or just plain ground balls, no grounders that take big hops or even change speed and the animation of the ball in motion is bad. The animation outside of pitching and the batter swinging are pretty ...bad. The graphics when you are batting are pretty nice looking but once that ball is hit watch oooooout, the feilding grafics are horrible and look like they were meant for regular old playstation and the feilders are so little compared to the feild. I do have to give ea props on the feilds tho. Then when feilding you get a huuumoungous target thing and it actually can make you lose the ball because it gets in the way. The sound is good and the only thing that is not really flawed in the game. This game is for those that are not real baseball fans and just want to hit homeruns and have an arcade type game. If you are a sport gamer who likes realistic gameplay then you would definetly not want to get this game... HORRIBLE GAME FOR A SIM FAN WHO LIKES REALISTIC BASEBALL PLAY AND YOU WILL COME TO HATE THE GAME. Good thing i only rented this peice of ... Read more ›
