"Cal Ripken's Real Baseball is the first video game to ever put 18 people on the same virtual field at the same time to compete for baseball
bragging rights. Customize your own character traits and take the field with people from all around the world. Build up to 3 characters through
successful game play with teammates in Pick Up Games, Tournaments, and Leagues. Baseball strategy and skill are just as important as video game
prowess in RealBaseball".
This game looks indeed like the real deal, unfortunately, since October 2008 the servers are shutdown, and you can't even check the site. Checking some
articles in Internet, Wikipedia says that is probably the game will be re-launched soon, but without the sponsorship of Cal Ripken [Keep Reading].
So because of that, we ar gonna leave the links for downloading the client, although right now is useless 'cause you need to conect to the servers to play
the game and right now (July 2009) all of them are shut down.
The Wikipedia article also says about the Gameplay:
"Real Baseball was a massively multiplayer online sports game capable of fielding up to 18 players a game, now it only supports 10, occupying all
active positions in the game of baseball. However, players often refuse to field 18 due to lag and synchronization issues and the games never ended
with the total players. Game characters are based on a level of ranks for a specific range of levels, from 0-99, with 99 being the maximum level
attained. The game-coded team names of Home and Away teams are used instead of the player created team names; therefore, players can play with each
other in normal servers regardless of the team they belong. Servers are divided by players under level 10 and over level 11. Team play is only
enforced however, as expected, in Team Tournaments and the UBO League. Game settings also allows the option day and night of three, six, and
nine inning games, with extra innings if necessary in two stadiums".
