Baseball Classics Next Generation vs. APBA & Strat-O-Matic 

Greetings MLB board gamer!

Each year we get emails asking how Baseball Classics® Premium Edition using next generation gaming engine technology and design compares to APBA & Strat-O-Matic Advanced Edition baseball board game. Both games have been on the market for many decades.  Baseball Classics launched in the ’80’s while APBA entered the market in the 1950’s and Strat-O-Matic came out in the 1960’s.  Each game has evolved over the years, though you can see which company has truly enhanced their MLB board game play more with the following comparison.
