- TRIVIA -

Released in June 1979.

First Rotberg coin-op game. Approximately 1,050 units were produced.

This was originally slated to be Atari's first game to feature digitized speech. Dan Pliskin designed a speech board that included the umpire's calls, but management eventually nixed the idea.

An Atari Baseball machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.
