Saving the season requires separate Control Paks. If the controller has a Rumble Pak installed, it has to use to a separate controller in order to save the game. The game also lets you simulate a whole ballgame, while also letting you play through all the 30 Major League Baseball stadiums (from the year the game was released).
IGN gave this game a 3 out of 10. Next Generation Magazine gave this game a 1 out of 5. The game received praises during its early test previews. However, when it was finally released, the game was criticized for its wacky graphics, minimal amount of voice chips, repetitive sound elements, simple challenges, and unrealistic home run hitting.
