it "The Best Baseball Game Ever." "I agree with the gaming magazines that

say 3DO's High Heat Baseball is the best," said Sosa. "The baseball video

game I endorse has to play and look like the real thing. High Heat Baseball

captures Major League Baseball perfectly." This year's version features

improved graphics including star player face-mapping and new animations, a
