Customer Review

on June 12, 2000
I am absolutely utterly amazed 989 Sports would even call it "Managerial" mode (please see my review on the Season mode for a general overall review).
To begin, the outfielders and infielders cannot be brought in or back to the desired depth. Thus, even if the pitcher is batting the outfield will only play at regular depth.
There is also no control over bunting. The 989 Sports will allow the players to bunt in any situation. This may sound alright initially, but, Mark McGwire bunting with 2 outs and and runner on second base is not my idea of smart baseball.
Another issue is pitcher substitutions. The game is booby-trapped whereas when a pitcher is substituted for a pinch-hitter a new pitcher is "automatically inserted" by the computer. This is very very wasteful especially if you did not want that pitcher in the game and a pitcher substitution has to be made without getting any use out of the "computer inserted" pitcher.
Ohhh...We can't forget about the infamous glitch this game has. Sometimes when a pitcher has been pinch-hit for the computer will insert a position player to pitch. If you try to remove the position player from the pitcher's mound you will only get a list of other positional player to insert into that spot (EVEN IF YOU HAVE OTHER RELIEF AND STARTING PITCHERS AVAILABLE).
Admittedly, I am a huge 989 Sports fan but they must spend more time on this game otherwise I will reluctanctly convert to EA Sports.
