Color Graphic Design Makes it Easy

Everything in Baseball Classics is designed from the ground up in full color-coded ratings. Everything!

From our crystal clear player ratings to each game part, Baseball Classics is super easy to play.

In a glance, Baseball Classics player cards’ color-coded ratings make creating MLB team lineups easy. Build lineups quickly based on each team’s strengths and your management style. Our color codes reveal all: speed, power, fielding, base running, on-base performance, bunting, and strikeouts. You can choose to counter the other team’s strengths and poke at their weaknesses.

Super Fast Game Play

Just like in MLB, in Baseball Classics there’s always a dual between the current pitcher on the mound and batter at the plate. Our gameplay is lightning fast; from the first pitch to the final out.
