Pitcher List’s Baseball Video Game Tournament Hub

If you’re anything like us writers here at Pitcher List, you’ve played a lot of baseball video games in your life. We wanted to look at some of the classics of baseball video gaming and review them, and determine which games are the best, and which games are worth leaving in the past. For the sake of this tournament, we excluded games that are still being made, such as MLB: The Show and Out of the Park Baseball, and just wanted to focus on games that hold special places in our nostalgic past. We narrowed it down to 16 games across 14 franchises, but we need YOUR help to determine each matchup. Check back every day for the next matchup in the tournament, and vote on which game you think is best!
