For it's one, two, three strikes--you're out in All-Star Baseball 2001 for the Game Boy Color. Smell the freshly cut grass, pine tar, and foot-longs as you take the field with any one of the 30 Major League teams. Be sure to hone those batting skills in the Batting Practice mode. As player/manager, you'll bat and pitch for the team, as well as make the hard decisions about which players (over 700 of them) get traded, called up from the farm team, or sent back down. If you're really in for a clash of the titans, try the Cooperstown Hall of Fame team, which includes recent inductees Reggie Jackson and Nolan Ryan.

So the conclusions of my experience is that when batting it usually a home run or nothing, singles are much less common than home runs so most home runs are solo shots. This explains why RBIs aren't much further away from the home run total and why the batting average is so lower than normal. Of course I didn't have one single walk, but this is pretty common in all video baseball games for me.
As for pitching, Brad Radke was 11-1 at the break with 36 strikeouts and 2 walks. His ERA was 1.86. Pretty realistic...if the game was called All-Star Baseball 1890.
Obviously my experience didn't produce realistic stats. But if you pretend that it is some alternate form of baseball where the ball is closer to a golf ball than a baseball then it's acceptable.
The bottom line is that the game is not realistic but can still be a lot of fun.
