Replay! Magazine Review
Steve Lopez takes an in-depth look at the successor to the Pursue the Pennant Baseball Board Game and Baseball Computer Game. Includes views of the 1982 Paul Molitor and Dennis Martinez player cards as well as a description of how the game is played.

"I have received the 3rd edition charts and played my first game which I enjoyed greatly. I find your layout very easy to grasp and realistic.

For years I played the old Pursue the Pennant computer game now called (....) which is very accurate and has pitch by pitch options, but it left me wanting more. Your web page nailed it on the head with the
quote from your friend Dave about not wanting magic and the need for transparency. I have tried other games (.....) (fun and has a nice grassroots gamer base but weak realism) and the (.....) computer game (excellent but pricey--after reading their super advance rules there is no way  I would attempt their board game). 

I will be playing a greatest team tournament while I am on the road covering stories for ESPN.  Congratulations on a great game and even finer service."
