Description

Sony's exclusive baseball series continues its PlayStation 2 run with this enhanced version of MLB 09. Key changes for this installment include new personalized batting stances, new stadiums, updated rosters, and various artificial intelligence tweaks. The game otherwise offers the same play modes found in the previous installment, from the career-styled "Road to the Show" option, where you guide a created athlete from the minors to the big leagues, to the "Rivalry Mode," which has you battling the same team for an extended number of games. Online support is once again included, allowing you to create a 30-team league to test your batting, pitching, and fielding skills against other baseball fans from across the country.
