While I was getting ready to post this my boys were looking over my should and they seemed to be just as excited as I was. There is something just plain fun about kids baseball video games and it looks like Activision has put some nice kid friendly graphics behind it as well. I think that my older boy will also really like the Career mode, I just hope that it will be something that they do not complicate too much. Check out those graphics again though, I think they are great for a game like this, you can see the Wilson logo on the helmets, the over the top star burst graphics when the ball is hit, all of that makes for a very fun looking game.
