Season Mode puts you in the Manager chair, letting you draft your team. You may choose from a selection of 30 fiction characters and 30 real MLB players. You put together a team of nine players, one for every position. You may choose where each player will play, and where they will hit in the batting order. If you win enough games, you will go to the play-offs, and then the championship.
In this game type, you are first presented with a screen (see right) that lets you choose your difficulty, length (in innings), if errors are on, and what field you will play on. Once done, you go pick your players, dodgeball style, alternating picks. You then go play your single game.
In Batting Practice, you choose one player who then hits batting practice. Robotic pitching machine, Mr. Clankey, pitches you a selection of pitches. You can choose whether he throws you a fastball, slow ball, right curve, or left curve.
In Spectator Mode, you simply watch a game being played. You do not choose teams or anything. You simply watch the game being played.
