I can remember playing World Series Baseball on the Sega Genesis (all real video game heads are nodding in approval over this game) and playing in the Home Run Derby with everyone on the damn game. For whatever reason though, whenever the computer played with Ripken, he’d always hit like 28 home runs in the contest. Ole cheatin’ ass computer.
Ripken seemed like he was cheating in 1991, in the All-Star Game in Toronto. Dude hit 11 home runs at a time when players were mustering up only 4 and 5 for the event. Plus, Toronto wasn’t exactly a hitters’ park. Ripken makes it on this list because he was the pioneer for athletic shortstops, and he was one of the first computer athletes that I swore was always cheating. – Syreeta H.
I’m a firm believer that the closest I’ve gotten to Heaven is Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. In the meantime til we cross paths again, I’ll pass along the gospel of the Field of Dreams here, Cheap.Seats.Please, I70 Baseball, and ‘Live From The Cheap Seats’.
