Welcome to my first ever FAQ.  (And after doing one of these, I've gained a 
newfound respect for the people who've written all the other FAQs I've 
downloaded.  Really, you should try writing one yourself sometime, these 
things are not easy.)

I was browsing around GameFAQs "Help Wanted" section, and saw this game 
listed fairly high up on the NES charts.  No one had bothered to write a FAQ 
for it yet, and I figured that since I was on summer break, I might as well 
give it a go.  I'd wanted to get into FAQ-writing for a while, and luckily 
enough I was able to break in with one of my favourite NES games of all time.  
(I'm a total sucker for nearly every Culture Brain game in existence.)

So, here we go.  Oh, and if you want to know more about me, visit my Website 
at http://www.seanshannon.org/ if you would.  I could use the company.

| INTRODUCTION |                                                      [ Z.0300 ]

Baseball Simulator 1.000 was released by Culture Brain in Japan in 1989 under 
the name Choujin Ultra Baseball, and came over to the United States shortly 
thereafter.  Aside from SNKís Baseball Stars, Baseball Simulator 1.000 was the 
only baseball game for the NES that allowed you to create your own team from 
scratch, naming players and giving them statistics that would be followed in 
gameplay.  In addition, Baseball Simulator 1.000 allowed you to run a full 
season within a six-team league of your choice, from 5 to 165 games in length, 
and kept track of detailed player and team statistics through battery backup.

Those features alone made Baseball Simulator 1.000 one of the best baseball 
games for the NES, if not the best.  But Culture Brain didnít stop there; in 
addition to playing regular baseball, you could also play baseball with "Ultra 
Plays."  These plays included pitches that would snake left and right as they 
went to the plate, hits that would explode whenever they were caught, and 
fielders who could leap thirty feet in the air to rob batters of home runs, 
among others.  However, each Ultra Play would cost Ultra Points, and when you 
ran out of Ultra Points, you could no longer use Ultra Plays.  A regular 
baseball game on Baseball Simulator 1.000 was fun enough, but playing with Ultra 
Plays just made the game a blast.

Indeed, one may be able to trace back the whole "wacky sports" genre to Baseball 
Simulator 1.000.  Looking at later console games like Base Wars for the NES 
(which came out just after Baseball Simulator 1.000) and Electronic Artsí Mutant 
League Sports series for the Genesis, and arcade games like NBA Jam and NFL 
Blitz, itís easy to see traces of Baseball Simulator 1.000 in all of them.  
However, none really seem to capture the same sense of style, or finesse, as 
Baseball Simulator 1.000.  Maybe itís because other sports donít lend themselves 
to "super powers" like baseball does.  Maybe itís because none of the other 
games offer the same variety of plays that Baseball Simulator 1.000 has.  Or 
maybe itís just because Baseball Simulator 1.000 was that well designed a game 
that it still stands up today, much like the original Legend of Zelda and 
Metroid.  Who knows.

A Super NES sequel, appropriately titled Super Baseball Simulator 1.000, came 
out the same year that the Super NES hit American shores, and offers even more 
Ultra Plays, better stat tracking and improvements all over the board.  
Unfortunately, the battery in my copy died just months after buying it, and Iíve 
never replaced it.  (By point of comparison, I have games older than most of you 
reading this right now that have battery backups still holding up; Super 
Baseball Simulator 1.000 is the only game Iíve had where the battery has died on 
me.)  Super Baseball Simulator 1.000 wound up being the last game Culture Brain 
released in the United States, which really upset me because I was dying for a 
16-bit sequel to Magic of Scheherazade, the greatest game youíve never played.  
Culture Brain still develops games in Japan, but none have been released in 
America for over a decade now.

As for how to get a copy of Baseball Simulator 1.000, as of the time of this 
writing, copies were going on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/) for $2-$6, and 
FuncoLand (http://www.gamestop.com/) was selling the game for $7.99 on their 
Website; lower prices may be available at your local FuncoLand store.  Iím sure 
there must be ROMs of the game on the Ďnet somewhere, but REAL PLAYERS DONíT USE 
ROMs.  At least not unless the real deal can be procured easily, and Iíve given 
you two sources there; try garage sales, too.  The only time Iíve ever used a 
ROM was for an old arcade game from my childhood that was never translated to a 
home system (Atariís Peter Packrat), and I dumped that ROM off my hard disk a 
long time ago.  (And the hard disk crashed months later anyway.)  Come on, five 
to ten bucks isnít too much to ask for a game of this quality, plus you get the 
authentic NES experience that you just canít duplicate with a computer monitor 
and controller.

| NOTE ON CONVENTIONS |                                               [ Z.0400 ]

Some of my writing conventions may seem a bit strange, so I figured I should 
mention them here before we get too much farther into the FAQ.

First of all, I use UK English when I write; when I first got on the Internet 
back in 1994, one of the first things I did was join a BjŲrk mailing list (Blue-
Eyed-Pop, still very much active today), and the majority of people there were 
from the UK and thus used "The Queenís English."  I adopted the style myself to 
"fit in" there, and yes, I even use it outside of Internet communication.  So I 
spell defense "defence", offense "offence", color "colour" and so on.  (My 
style for dates, however, is the Japanese style, because Iím a Japanophile.)

Secondly, you will note that I do not refer to the baseball players within the 
game as males; there is no way to select player gender in the game, and the 
player sprites certainly look ambiguous enough.  One of the things that 
frustrates me to no end in modern video games is that no matter how good the 
create-a-player mode is, all the players are still male, and referred to as "he" 
and "him" by the announcers.  I mean, weíve got the WNBA proving women got game 
just as good as the men, weíve had female goaltenders in the NHL, and now we 
even have female college football players.  Is it that hard to add a gender 
toggle, and get the announcers to record a couple of extra sound tracks?  Sorry, 
didnít mean to go off like that, but it really does bug me sometimes.

Finally, I do try to give a bit of explanation of the rules of baseball in here, 
because Iím not necessarily sure everyone who reads this FAQ knows the rules of 
baseball.  The old story goes that the British can never understand the rules of 
baseball, while Americans can never understand the rules of cricket.  (Although 
I picked up the rules of cricket fairly quickly.)  If anyone needs help 
understanding the basic rules of baseball, e-mail me and I may include such 
rules in a later version of the FAQ.

| CONTROLS |                                                          [ Z.0500 ]

This is a basic summary of what the controller does during the game; in the 
sections below, controls will be re-explained in a more context-sensitive 

IN MENUS                                                              [ Z.0510 ]

Control Pad -- Move cursor up, down, left or right.

   A Button -- Make a selection.

   B Button -- Go back a screen.

(Note: in some situations, like when viewing team stats under Edit mode, you 
may have to press Start to exit.)

ON OFFENCE/WHILE BATTING                                              [ Z.0520 ]

Control Pad -- While batting, used to move batter within batter's box.  After
               batting, used to indicate base for runner to move to.

               Right = First Base      Up = Second Base
                Left = Third Base    Down = Home Plate

   A Button -- While batting, press down to swing; tap to bunt.  After
               batting, used along with Control Pad to direct baserunner to
               return to base.  E.g., hold Right and press A to tell a runner
               advancing to second base to return to first base.  Does not
               work if a runner is already sliding.

   B Button -- While batting, press before pitch is thrown to activate Ultra
               Hit for that batter (if s/he has one).  While batting, press
               while holding a direction on the Control Pad to attempt a
               steal on that base.  E.g., hold Up and press B to make the
               runner on first base attempt to steal second base.  After
               batting, used along with Control Pad to direct baserunner to
               advance a base, using same method as stealing.

      Start -- Pauses/unpauses the game.  While paused, press A to bring up a
               menu of available pinch-hitters.  Move the cursor to the
               pinch-hitter you want and press A to insert him/her in the
               current batter's position, or press B to return to the game.

ON DEFENCE/WHILE PITCHING                                             [ Z.0530 ]

Control Pad -- Before pitch, used to move pitcher from left to right on the
               mound.  If pitcher has Ultra Pitches, press Up twice to enter
               Ultra Pitch mode, then press Up and Down to cycle through
               available pitches.  During windup, use to select pitch.

               Down = Fastball                 Up = Forkball (Slowball)
               Left = Curve to the left     Right = Curve to the right                

               While the pitch is heading to the plate, press to control the
               ball's trajectory.  After the ball is hit (or while attempting
               to pick off runners), used to move fielders, and also to
               indicate base to run to/throw to as with offence.

   A Button -- Before pitch, press to begin pitch.  After the ball is hit, if
               no one has the ball, press A by itself to make fielders leap
               up for the ball, or press A with a direction on the Control
               Pad to make fielders dive for the ball.  If a defencive player
               has the ball, press A with a direction on the Control Pad to
               make the player throw to the indicated base.

   B Button -- Before pitch, if an Ultra Pitch has been selected, press to
               cancel.  If an Ultra Pitch has not been selected, pressing B
               will exit the batting screen so the pitcher can attempt to
               pick off a runner.  After the ball has been hit, if no one has
               the ball, pressing B will cause the player closest to the ball
               to use an Ultra Fielding.  If a defencive player has the ball,
               press B along with a direction on the Control Pad to make the
               player run to the indicated base.

      Start -- Pauses/unpauses the game.  While paused, press A to enter
               defencive options.

               CHANGE: Change any of the players out on the field, including
                       the pitcher.  Note that the game will NOT ask for
                       confirmation when changing any player other than the
                       pitcher, so be warned.

                 MOVE: Move the positioning of fielders (except pitcher and
                       catcher).  Use the control pad to move the arrow over
                       a fielder, press A to select that fielder, move the
                       fielder with the control pad, then press A to
                       de-select the fielder, or B to return the fielder to
                       his/her original spot.

                  END: Returns to the game.

| MODES OF PLAY |                                                     [ Z.0600 ]

These are the options that are available to you once you start up the game.

EXHIBITION -- A contest held just for the fun of it, no long-term

      1PLAYER -- One player against the computer, one game.

     2PLAYERS -- Two humans against each other.  You can either play a single
                 game, or continue after the first game into a best-of-seven

SEASON -- Play a full season, with as many players as you want participating.
          (Before each game, you can choose which teams are computer-
          controlled and which are player-controlled, so you can "switch off"
          controllers between games.)

          PLAY -- Start a new season, or continue the one currently in the
                  battery backup.

         ERASE -- Erase the currently-stored season from the battery backup.
                  The game will ask for confirmation before doing this.

     STANDINGS -- View the compiled statistics of the current season.

EDIT -- Edit up to six of the teams in the game, changing names, statistics
        or Ultra Plays.

       ENTER -- Select a team and edit it to your heart's content.

       ERASE -- Erase an edited team.  The game will ask for
                confirmation before doing this.

     DISPLAY -- Display the programmed statistics for any team, even the
                built-in teams.

NEW LEAGUE -- Edit the "Original League" to include any six teams you want,
              from any preset league.

              NOTE: If a season is currently in progress, this option
              cannot be performed without first deleting the current
              season.  The game will ask for confirmation before doing

WATCH -- Select two teams and let the computer play them both.  Note that if you
         leave the game on the title screen long enough, the game will play
         itself, breaking between half-innings to return to the title screen.

| EXHIBITION/BASIC PLAY |                                             [ Z.0700 ]

In exhibition, Player One will automatically bat first/be the "away team", 
while Player Two (or the computer in a one-player game) will be the "home 
team."  There are no difficulty settings in the game; the best way to simulate 
difficulty is to create weak or strong teams yourself, because all the teams in 
the game are pretty balanced, with the exception of the Ultra Teams being 
stronger than the regular teams.

After making the 1PLAYER or 2PLAYERS selection, you will be moved to the Team 
Select screen.  Note that even if you have edited teams, the original teams 
will still be available on this menu.  Move the "I" cursor over the team 
Player I wants to be, and press A.  If this is a one-player game, the "II" 
cursor will then appear to select the computer team; otherwise the "II" 
cursor will be on the screen from the beginning.  Note that the same team 
cannot be selected twice.

After the teams are selected, you will then be asked to select from the six 
available stadiums.

  DOME: Fairly deep outfield and big foul areas.  When you hit a home run,
        the camera doesn't pan up, and there are no fireworks.  (The game was
        made before indoor fireworks were in wide-spread use.)  If you hit a
        home run into the scoreboard, youíll see that part of the scoreboard
        "break" (then automatically get healed right up) and hear an
        appropriate sound effect.

  TOWN: Smallish outfield and foul areas. The infield is all dirt, although
        this doesnít seem to affect the physics of the ball (come on, this is an
        8-bit game, what do you expect).  When you hit a home run, the camera
        pans up to skyscrapers, and fireworks different from the other
        fireworks in the game go off.  (Theyíre bigger and donít "shoot up"
        from the ground above.)

 SPACE: Short outfield and almost no foul areas.  When you hit a home run,
        the camera pans up to the stars, the zero-gravity stands and the
        nearby satellites, and fireworks go off.

 GRASS: Average sized outfield and small foul areas.  Dirt infield, despite the
        name.  When you hit a home run, the camera pans up to Russian-style
        cathedral spires, and fireworks go off.

HARBOR: Average sized outfield and big foul areas.  When you hit a home run,
        the camera pans up to the water and ship overhead (?), then Town
        Stadium-style fireworks go off.  If you hit the ball into the lower
        part of the "water", youíll see it splash in and hear an appropriate
        sound effect; sometimes youíll head the sound effect even if you hit a
        homer that goes off the left or right edge of the screen.

 BROWN: Average sized outfield and foul areas. Dirt infield and foul lines.
        When you hit a home run, the camera pans up to Russian-style cathedral
        spires, and fireworks go off.  (This doesnít seem much different from
        the Grass Stadium.)

Note that in a two-player exhibition, successive games will be played in 
different stadiums, selected by the computer.

Once the stadium has been selected, the matchup screen will appear.  Just 
press Start here, there's really nothing to see.

From here, you will be asked to select your starting pitcher.  Note that the 
top four pitchers are intended to be starters, while the bottom two are 
intended to be relievers, so it would be a good idea to pick one of the top 
four pitchers.

After that, there's just one more screen to go, the batting order and 
position screen.  Select USE if you want to go straight to the game, or 
CHANGE if you want to change your batting order.  If you select CHANGE, the 
player names will appear to the right of the lineup; move your cursor to the 
player you want to bat first, then press A, then move your cursor to the 
player you want to bat second, then press A, and so on.  After selecting the 
batting lineup, the positions will appear to the right of the names; move 
your cursor to the position you want the first batter to play, then press A, 
then move your cursor to the position you want the second batter to play, 
then press A, and so on.  Note that you will not be able to look at player 
statistics while doing this, unless you use the Player Stats section found 
later in this FAQ.

Once that's done, the game begins.  For the sake of simplicity, I'm assuming 
you are Player One, and thus batting first.  Also, use of Ultra Plays will be 
saved until the next section.

ON OFFENCE                                                            [ Z.0710 ]

After the "Play Ball" screen (note the Culture Brain game ads on the 
scoreboard), you will be taken to the Batting Screen.  The camera angle will be 
from behind home plate, facing the pitcher, as most games from this time frame 
were.  Although the ground colour will vary depending on the stadium youíre in, 
the bleachers will all look the same, even though the bleachers in the Grass 
Stadium look a lot different than, say, the Space Stadium.  In addition to this 
view, you will have four inset windows:

 MIDDLE-LEFT WINDOW: Displays ball (B), strike (S) and out (O) count.

 BOTTOM-LEFT WINDOW: The top line displays the first two letters of the
                     defencive teamís name, followed by the number of Ultra
                     Points the team has.  (If the team is not an Ultra Team,
                     there will be no number.)  The second line displays the
                     current pitcherís name, and the third line will display the
                     number of pitches that pitcher has thrown in the game.  If
                     the pitcher is in a "pinch", the PINCH indicator will be at
                     the bottom of the window.  (More on "pinch" later.)

MIDDLE-RIGHT WINDOW: The top line displays the current inning, the second line
                     displays the "Away" teamís first two letters and current
                     score, and the third line displays the "Home" teamís first
                     two letters and current score.

BOTTOM-RIGHT WINDOW: The top line displays the first two letters of the batting
                     teamís name, followed by the number of Ultra Points the
                     team has.  (If the team is not an Ultra Team, there will be
                     no number.)  The second line displays the position in the
                     batting order of the current batter, followed by the
                     current batterís name.  The third line displays the
                     batterís batting average, while the last line displays the
                     number of home runs the current batter has.  If the batter
                     has selected an Ultra Hit, it will be displayed to the left
                     of the Home Run count.

Note that four other objects may exist on the Batting Screen, depending on the 
situation of the game.  If there is a runner on first base, there will be an 
inset window depicting the baserunner above the middle-right window; likewise, 
if there is a runner on third base, there will be an inset window depicting the 
baserunner above the middle-left window.  If there is a runner on second base, 
the baserunner can be seen behind the pitcher.  Finally, if the pitcher has 
selected an Ultra Pitch, it will appear on the right-hand side of the mound.

Okay, so now that weíve gotten that out of the way, letís get to batting.  
Before (and even during) the pitch, you can use the Control Pad to move the 
batter around the batterís box.  Tap A to bunt (although you have to tap it just 
right or else youíll be stuck in "check swing" position), or hold it down to 

One of the things you will notice is that there is a very small "sweet spot" on 
the bat where you can hit the ball; if the ball passes through the end tip of 
the third of the bat closest to the batter, it wonít make contact.  This results 
in far fewer foul tips than are usually found in a baseball video game (or, 
indeed, a baseball game).  Also, while there is no visible height control for 
the ball, if the sound made while the pitch is thrown is low, be careful for a 
"bloop" sound just before the ball reaches the plate; this indicates that the 
ball hit the ground, and you canít hit it.  (If you didnít swing, it will count 
as a ball.)

Letís assume that you hit the ball.  The screen will then change to the Fielding 
Screen, which shows the playing field from above, with centre field being at the 
top of the screen and home plate being at the bottom.  If the ball reaches far 
enough into the outfield, an inset showing the current baserunners will appear 
in the bottom-centre of the screen, enabling you to advance or pull back runners 
as you wish.

Letís assume you then get a runner on base.  When you return to the Batting 
Screen, anytime after the pitcher begins his windup, you can steal a base by 
holding the Control Pad in the direction of the base you want stolen, then 
pressing B.  (Note that, if youíre playing with Ultra Plays, pressing B without 
a direction will turn on that batterís Ultra Hit, if s/he has one, and the Ultra 
Hit cannot be turned off.)

One quick note here: anytime you score, the current game score will be displayed 
in the centre of the screen.  Note that this score conforms to Japanese scoring 
conventions, where the away team is always mentioned first and the home team is 
always mentioned second.  So if you score a run after your opponent has scored 
two, the score will read " 1-2 ".

Assuming you want to insert a pitch-hitter, before a pitch press Start to pause 
the game, then press A.  Move your cursor to the pinch-hitter you want to insert 
and press A to insert the hitter in (note you will not get confirmation before 
this), or press B to cancel back to the game in progress.  There are no pinch-
runners in the game.

Quick trick when playing against the computer: if you ever have runners on first 
and third, and the opposing third baseman doesnít have the ball, move the runner 
on third to home.  (If the third baseman has the ball, move the runner on first 
to second to get the computer to throw to second, then move the runner back to 
first.)  When the computer throws the ball to home, move the first base runner 
to second and motion the runner heading home back to third.  The computer will 
let the runner on first take second unopposed.  Works every time.  Also, the 
computer is horrible about run-downs; just run away from the guy with the ball, 
and he wonít bother throwing it to the fielder stationed where youíre headed.

ON DEFENCE                                                            [ Z.0720 ]

Okay, now letís assume you ground into a double play and strike out to end the 
inning, so we can cover the defencive controls.  (Note the detailed stats on the 
bottom of the screen between half-innings.)  Now you are in control of the 
pitcher; press left or right to move the pitcher on the mound.  (Pressing up 
twice will activate the pitcherís Ultra Pitches, if s/he has any.)  To start a 
pitch, hold down if you want a fastball, up if you want a forkball/slowball, 
left or right if you want a curve in that direction, or nothing at all if you 
want a "regular pitch", then press A.  During the windup, you can hold left or 
right to add more curve to the pitch; you can even control the pitch while itís 
heading to the mound in this manner, although not by much.

Letís say that the batter hits an infield grounder.  Assuming a player has 
caught the ball (you can move fielders around with the Control Pad), you can 
then hold a direction and then press A to have the player throw to that base, or 
hold a direction and then press B to have the player run to that base.  You can 
also move around with the Control Pad in an attempt to tag out a baserunner, but 
you donít move as fast as a B-button run.  Also note that whenever you throw the 
ball, ANY of your players in the way of that ball will catch it.  I mention this 
because unless youíre careful, a batter who has grounded to third may be safe 
because the pitcher catches the relay to the first baseman.  (To avoid this, 
after starting the throw to first base, immediately hold up or down to move the 
pitcher out of the way.)  Also note that the ball doesnít tend to slow down that 
much during a throw, and it takes a while for someone who has caught a relay to 
throw it again, so catching relays generally isnít worthwhile unless youíve 
changed your mind on which base you want to throw to.

But now letís say that your infielder commits an error.  Youíll know whenever 
someone commits an error because s/he will squat over and have sweat coming out 
of his/her forehead for a couple of seconds, and be unable to move.  (Note that 
each of these automatically count as an error in the gameís scoring, unlike in 
Major League Baseball where the error will generally be ignored if it didnít 
contribute to a runner advancing further than s/he normally would had the ball 
been properly handled.)  Thereís not much you can do about errors, and because 
player fatigue/luck isnít simulated in this game, thereís no real point in 
substituting fielders unless youíre REALLY nervous about an error being 
committed at some point.  Substituting fielders is covered below.

Now letís say that the next batter gets one into the outfield, and you need to 
make a stretch to get the ball.  (If the ball is in the air, you can judge where 
itís going to go by its shadow on the ground.)  If you need to dive for the 
ball, hold the Control Pad in the direction you want to dive and press A; if you 
need to jump for the ball, take your thumb off the Control Pad and press A.  
Note that if you fail, you will have about a one-second window where your 
fielder is motionless, and the jump and slide donít cover much distance to start 
with, so use these options wisely.

MISCELLANEOUS                                                         [ Z.0730 ]

Okay, now letís get to the later innings of the game, where your pitchers may 
get tired.  You can tell a pitcherís level of tiredness by its animation on the 
mound before a pitch; if a pitcher is motionless, the pitcher is not tired.  If 
a pitcher is sweating, the pitcher is starting to get tired.  If the pitcherís 
shoulders start to move up and down, the pitcher is tired, and if the pitcher is 
sweating AND his/her shoulders are moving up and down, the pitcher is VERY tired 
and should be replaced immediately.  To replace a pitcher, press Start before a 
pitch to pause the game, then press A.  Select CHANGE from the menu and then 
press A, then press A while the cursor is over the pitcherís position on the 
field.  You will be taken to a screen showing the pitchers warming up; select a 
pitcher and press A, and you will be shown the pitcherís current statistics.  
Youíll also see a picture of the pitcherís face; a smile means the pitcher is 
healthy, no expression means the pitcher is somewhat tired, and a frown means 
the pitcher is tired.  You will be asked to confirm the pitcher be inserted into 
the game before you return.

Substituting fielders also works through the CHANGE menu in much the same way; 
after selecting CHANGE, simply move the cursor to the position you want to 
substitute in, press A, and select an available player.  Note that the game will 
NOT ask for confirmation before doing this, so use this option wisely.  The MOVE 
option below CHANGE can also be used to move fielders around on the field before 
a pitch, but this is rarely of any use within the game.  If you want to use it, 
simply move the cursor over the fielder you want to move, press A and then use 
the Control Pad to move the fielder around.  Press A to lock the fielder in that 
spot, or press B to move the fielder to his/her standard position.  END simply 
returns to the game.

Not all pitcher fatigue is due to how long a pitcher has been in the game, 
though.  Whenever there are runners on second and third, there is a chance 
(seemingly a greater chance if the bases are loaded) that the pitcher will enter 
"pinch" mode.  You will know if the pitcher is in pinch mode because the 
background music will change, and the word "PINCH" will appear in the lower-left 
window.  In pinch mode, pitchers who are tired may suddenly gain all their 
energy back, and pitchers who shouldnít be tired may suddenly appear, and 
perform, as though they are very tired.  How a pitcher reacts to pinch mode 
seems to vary from pitcher to pitcher and from game to game; it just seems to be 
a matter of chance as to how the computer decides to place the pitcher.

Whenever a run is scored, the crowd flashes rapidly and you get a sound effect.  
The sound effect changes into something more triumphant-sounding after the tenth 
run.  If someone hit a home run, in addition to all the special effects with 
each stadium, you may also be treated to a quick animation of that player high-
tenning everyone on his bench, inset on the scoreboard screen.  (Itís a really 
bad animation, though.)

If you enter the seventh inning of a game, the game will display "Lucky 7" 
before each half of the inning.  Itís unknown exactly what happens in the game 
during the seventh inning, but from my own observations it appears as though 
everyoneís stats are boosted; both the batting and pitching teams seem to 
perform better, get more strikeouts and home runs and what have you.  Or it 
could just be a silly graphic they put on the screen.  Who knows.

The triggers for the end of a game are like Major League Baseball, except with 
one hitch: if the away team is ahead by ten or more runs at the end of an 
inning, or the home team is ahead by ten or more runs at any point, the game 
will automatically be awarded to the team in the lead.  After a game, youíll get 
a brief shot of the gameís stats, then you will be thrown to the "Sports News" 
set, featuring the ugliest anchor in the history of video games about sports.  I 
normally like Culture Brainís character designs, but this one is just ... ugh.  
Anyway, the screen will display the box score for the game (though not hits and 
errors), the winning and losing pitchers and, if applicable, the pitcher who 
gets the save.  (Although the game seems to give these awards out at random, and 
not according to standard baseball rules.)  From there, press A and either 
select NEXT GAME to begin a new exhibition game, or END to end the game.  Note 
that if you choose to end the game, you wonít go back to the main menu; youíll 
get a message warning you to hold in the Reset button while powering off the 
console, and youíll have to do that (or else press Reset) to go back to the 
start of the game.

| ULTRA PLAY |                                                        [ Z.0800 ]

If youíve selected a team from the Ultra League, or an edited team based on an 
Ultra League team, then Ultra Plays will be available to you throughout the 
game.  Any team with Ultra Plays starts with a certain amount of Ultra Points, 
which can be spent on various Ultra Plays.  (Each Ultra Pitch or Ultra Hit costs 
three points, each Ultra Fielding costs five points.)  Ultra Points cannot be 
gained during a game, but are replenished at the start of every game during a 

Because Ultra Points are limited, itís a good idea not to use them on every 
play.  (Unless youíve activated unlimited Ultra Points on a Game Genie or 
something, in which case go to town.)  Especially with pitches, the occasional 
Ultra Pitch will fool the computer, but throw more than two in a row and all of 
a sudden the computer will get a hit off of one.

ULTRA PITCHES                                                         [ Z.0810 ]

Pitchers can have up to four Ultra Pitches; to use an Ultra Pitch, before 
throwing press up twice on the Control Pad to display the Ultra Pitches menu to 
the right of the mound; press up and down to cycle through available pitches, 
then press A to throw that pitch; press B to cancel out of the Ultra Pitches 

  SNAKE BALL: "Snakes" from side to side as it goes to the plate.  Good against
              both human and computer opponents, but increases the chance of
              beaning the batter.
              (Icon: White ball with a black "S" on top, on a blue background.)

STOPPER BALL: After throwing, press A once to stop the ball.  With the right
              timing, easily fools computer opponents; not so effective against
              human opponents.
              (Icon: Light blue "STOP" sign on a black background.)

MIRACLE BALL: Random Ultra Pitch.  Throws pitches even the pitcher doesnít have
              in his/her repertoire.  Useful, and risky, for obvious reasons.
              (Icon: Black question mark on a light blue background.)

    FAN BALL: Moves from side to side as it goes to the plate.  Doesnít seem
              much different from Snake Ball.  As with Snake Ball, good against
              both human and computer opponents, but has a tendency to cause
              more beanballs.
              (Icon: White ball with a white halo over it on a black background
              and something light blue I canít quite make out.)

SPEEDER BALL: After itís thrown, you can press up and down on the Control Pad to
              slow down or speed up the ball.  Also tends to make strikes out of
              what look like hits.  Good against human opponents, less useful
              against the computer.
              (Icon: Two white balls in the lower corners of the icon and a
              light blue left-right arrow between them, on a black background.)

   FIRE BALL: Increases in speed as it gets to the plate, then lights on fire.
              Like the Speeder Ball, turns some sure hits into strikes.  Fairly
              useful against human opponents, less so against the computer.
              (Icon: White ball with black flame surrounding it on a light blue

PHANTOM BALL: The ball disappears as it goes over the plate.  Hard to hit
              because you shouldnít hit it when you normally would; hitting it
              just as it disappears seems to be more effective.  Fairly useful
              against the computer, but human opponents adapt to it easily.
              (Icon: Black "sparkle" lines on a light blue background.)

 PHOTON BALL: Faster-than-fast ball.  Increases fastball speed by about 25%.
              Somewhat useful against the computer, but human opponents will
              soon adapt to it and at least get foul tips.
              (Icon: White ball in lower-left hand corner with three light blue
              lines above it, and two white arrows to the right, on a black

   IRON BALL: Ball turns to iron.  Slow as heck, but unless the batter hits it
              with the exact middle of the bat, gets a strike.  Useful against
              both human and computer opponents.
              (Icon: Black ball on a white background.)

  NINJA BALL: The ball spins in a very tight arc as it goes to the plate, and is
              much harder to hit.  Useful against human opponents, but the
              computer gets a lot of hits off of it.
              (Icon: Seven white balls in a hexagonal shape.)

Note that for many Ultra Pitches, if the batter swings and misses, s/he rotates 
around wildly until itís time to throw the next pitch.  Also note that sometimes 
the batterís hat seems to fly off, but the spinning animation still shows a hat 
on the batterís head!

ULTRA HITS                                                            [ Z.0820 ]

Each batter can have only one Ultra Hit; pitchers cannot have Ultra Hits.  
Select an Ultra Hit by pressing B before swinging; note that you can select an 
Ultra Hit while the pitch is coming to you.  Also note, however, that Ultra Hits 
cannot be canceled out of; if youíve selected an Ultra Hit, the only way not to 
spend Ultra Points on it is to not swing at the pitch.  In addition, each time 
you swing while an Ultra Hit is selected, you lose three Ultra Points, so donít 
take any "practice swings" before the ball is thrown.

  HYPER HIT: Doubles batting power.  After selecting, the batter will spin
             around in place in the batterís box.  Shallow outfield flyouts
             become home runs, but groundouts remain groundouts.  Somewhat
             useful in this regard, but creating a high-home run hitter may be
             simpler (and not cost Ultra Points or Ultra Hitting slots).
             (Icon: Light blue bat with two white arrows to the right pointing
             to it, on a black background.)

 METEOR HIT: Bat fragments surround the ball as it flies through the air,
             knocking out any fielder who tries to catch it.  Ground balls donít
             seem to be affected.  Not too useful.
             (Icon: What looks to be a black television set with the glass
             punched out, on a light blue background.)

 SHADOW HIT: Causes many other shadows to surround the ball as it flies in the
             air.  Ground balls arenít affected.  Fools the computer easily, but
             not human opponents.  Limited usefulness in that regard.
             (Icon: White ball with black shadows surrounding it, on a dark
             blue background.)

MISSILE HIT: Hit becomes a very slow line drive that "catches" any fielders in
             its' way and drives them to the wall with it.  Once the ball hits
             the wall, it drops and falls in front, and any fielders that were
             in itsí trajectory are unable to move for a couple of seconds.
             VERY USEFUL, as any fair ball is a guaranteed hit, probably for at
             least two bases, and this hit can even get home runs in stadiums
             with low outfield fences (like Space Stadium).
             (Icon: White slash going from the upper-left to the lower-right
             corner of the box, on a dark blue background.)

   BOMB HIT: If the ball is a fly ball, any fielder who tries to catch it is
             knocked unconscious for a few seconds when it falls to the ground.
             If a ground ball, after its first bounce it explodes and then falls
             down the screen, towards the catcher.  Useful, and the computer
             fielders fall for it every time.  For some reason, I tend to get a
             lot of home runs with this Ultra Hit, so maybe it increases batting
             power as well.
             (Icon: "BOMB" in light blue letters on top of a white explosion
             graphic, on a black background.)

MIRACLE HIT: A randomly selected Ultra Hit.  Useful and dangerous for obvious
             reasons.  The batters starts swinging around wildly as with Hyper
             Hit after this is selected, but this doesnít necessarily mean that
             the computer has selected Hyper Hit.
             (Icon: Black question mark on a light blue background.)

 TREMOR HIT: If a fly ball, no effect (unless it drops before being caught).  If
             a ground ball, the moment it touches the ground the screen starts
             to shake, and the fielders are stunned for a couple of seconds
             while baserunners can run as normal.  Combined with enough running
             power, this guarantees singles almost every time (even for infield
             grounders), and so this is useful.
             (Icon: What looks to be a black pot with the lid partway open on
             a light blue background.)

 CANNON HIT: If a ground ball, no effect.  If a fly ball, the shadow of the ball
             spins around, and it seems to fall prematurely.  Human players will
             adapt to it easily, but computer opponents are always fooled by it.
             Somewhat useful.
             (Icon: White ball with black lines behind it in the upper-right
             corner, black-and-white circle in the lower-left corner, on a light
             blue background.)

  FREAK HIT: If a fly ball, no effect.  If a ground ball, changes trajectory
             with every bounce.  Too random to be of any good (itíll sometimes
             bounce right into the hands of a fielder); barely useful.
             (Icon: White ball with a black zig-zag underneath it, on a dark
             blue background.)

SPINNER HIT: If a fly ball, no effect.  If a ground ball, rotates around as it
             rolls on the ground.  Fielders seem to have a hard time picking it
             up until it hits the outfield fence.  Somewhat useful.
             (Icon: Light blue baseball with black eyes and a dark blue sneer,
             on a dark blue background.)

ULTRA FIELDING                                                        [ Z.0830 ]

Each fielder, except the pitcher, can have one Ultra Fielding.  To use an Ultra 
Fielding, when the ball is near a fielder, press B to activate it.  Even if you 
donít use it, the five points are lost anyway.  Note that these tend to be very 
error-prone and difficult to use properly; I usually donít use them at all, 
especially since you have to remember which player has which Ultra Fielding, 
without benefit of icons, and they cost so many Ultra Points.

  ROCKET JUMP: Allows fielder to leap about thirty feet in the air.  If you can
               position yourself right, you can rob some homers this way, but
               triangulating the ballís trajectory with the leaping fielder is
               just more trouble than itís worth.
               (Icon: White player with light blue lines underneath, on a dark
               blue background.)

  HYPER THROW: After catching the ball, the fielder throws it at double regular
               speed.  Somewhat useful for outfielders, I guess, to catch
               runners at the plate.
               (Icon: A light blue home plate turned sideways, with two white
               arrows pointing at it, on a black background.)

  SUPER SLIDE: Increases slide distance about threefold.  But slides tend to be
               spur-of-the-moment decisions anyway, so by the time you press B
               to activate the Super Slide, itís too late to be of any real use.
               (Icon: What looks like a bearís footprint, in white, turned to
               the side, on a dark blue background.  Hard to describe.)

SUPER CHARGER: Increases running speed of fielder.  I could see this as useful
               for some infielders, but only very rarely.
               (Icon: A black kleat on a dark blue background.)

MIRACLE CATCH: Allows fielder to catch Ultra Hits that normally canít be caught.
               Works a bit odd, though, because if you catch a Missile Hit it
               doesn't count as an out, even though itís a line drive.
               (Icon: A ghost-looking creature in white and black, with five
               light blue triangles surrounding it, on a dark blue background.)

STARTING A SEASON                                                     [ Z.0910 ]

To start a season, select SEASON from the main menu, then PLAY.  You will then 
be asked to select a league from the season; either the Atlantic League, the 
Northern League, the Ultra League or the Original League you can create with the 
New League option described below.  (Sorry, no interleague play.)  Highlight the 
league you want by pressing up and down on the Control Pad, then press A to 
select it.

From there, you will be asked to assign each team a home stadium; teams cannot 
share a home stadium.  If you agree with the choices, select NO, otherwise 
select YES and a cursor will appear that you can move around the team names.  
Select one with the A button, then the cursor will shift to stadiums.  Press A 
again to move the selected team to the stadium; the team that formerly had that 
stadium will automatically move to the stadium the other team occupied.  When 
you are satisfied, press B to return to the NO/YES prompt and select NO.

From here you will be asked to select a season; seasons can be 5 games, 30 
games, 60 games or 165 games long.  In a five-game season, each team will face 
each other team once; in longer seasons, teams will face each other in three-
game series, and after two series all the teams get a day off.  Move your cursor 
to the length of season you want and press A, and a schedule showing the first 
few games (all of them in a five-game season) will appear to the left.  If for 
some reason you want to change the order of games, just re-select the same 
length of season and you will get a different order.  When you are satisfied 
with the order of games and length of season, press Start to continue.

From here a menu showing all six teams will appear with the options MANUAL and 
AUTO to the right of each team.  You will be asked to select MANUAL (player-
controlled) or AUTO (computer-controlled) for the first team; note that you can 
change this later on a game-to-game basis.  After selecting the option for the 
first team on the list, the cursor will move down to the second team.  Once you 
get to the end, select END to begin the season or RETRY to reassign MANUAL/AUTO 
to each team.

RUNNING A SEASON                                                      [ Z.0920 ]

The moment you begin the season, you will be taken to the first game.  Here you 
will be given the option of changing control of the teams from the default 
settings you just specified.  If either team is set on MANUAL, you will go 
straight to the game; if both teams are set to AUTO, you will be given the 
option to either WATCH the game, or SKIP it and have the computer simulate it.  
However, computer simulations still take 6-10 minutes, while watching a game 
takes about 25-30 minutes, so either way youíd better go make yourself a 
sandwich or something.  (And if you choose to skip the game, youíre forced to 
look at the Sports News screen, and anchor, the whole time, while the box score 
sloooooooowly gets posted.)  Also, if both teams are set to AUTO, and twenty 
seconds goes by on the pre-game screen without anything happening, the computer 
will automatically start the game in WATCH mode.

There are a couple of changes from an exhibition game you need to be aware of.  
First of all, instead of displaying the pre-programmed statistics in the bottom 
corners of the Batting Screen, it will display current season statistics, 
updated all the way to the last at-bat.

The big change comes with pitchers, however.  Starting pitchers who have pitched 
in the previous game will carry over that fatigue to the next game, so you have 
to have a pitching rotation.  (Relievers donít carry over fatigue.)  The 
standard rotation in Baseball Simulator 1.000 is to go from the top down to the
fourth and start again; if the starter has a bad outing, substitute with the one
who wonít be pitching for two days.  (E.g., if the top-listed pitcher is doing a
bad job, substitute the pitcher third from the top in his/her place.)  Note that 
complete games, shutouts and no-hitters arenít kept track of by the game, so 
thereís no point in leaving a pitcher in there longer than is absolutely 
necessary.  Also, if a team is leading the league by five or more games over the 
second-place team, EVERY PITCHER ON THAT TEAM WILL BE EXHAUSTED.  The pitchers 
may not look exhausted in their portraits or on the mound, but they will act 
like it.  This is supposed to help balance the game out, but it doesnít really 
do that good a job of it.

After a game is over, you will be taken to the Sports News screen, just as with 
an exhibition game.  The only change is that the people who have hit home runs 
are listed in the bottom-left corner.  Once you get past the box score, though, 
you will be presented with a new menu.

NEXT GAME -- Automatically moves to the next game of the season.

STANDINGS -- Allows you to view win/loss, player and other standings.  (You can
             also go to this screen directly from the SEASON menu.)  Note that
             pitcher batting statistics are not kept track of.

      OVERALL: Shows overall league standings.

                 G = Games played          W = Wins   L = Losses
               PCT = Winning percentage   GB = Games back of first place

     TEAM W-L: Displays a round-robin scorecard of how teams have fared
               against each other.  The left-hand column represents the team,
               the topmost row represents the opponent.  Within each box, the
               top number is the number of victories the team has against the
               opponent, and the bottom number is the number of victories
               suffered against the opponent.

        TEAMS: Allows you to select a team to view individual statistics for
               the season.  (See Team Stats section below for a guide to the
               header codes.)  Note that team batting average, home runs, RBIs,
               ERA, wins, losses and saves are totaled in the line below all the
               individual stats.

          AVG: Displays top 10 performers in batting average.

           HR: Displays top 10 home run hitters.

          RBI: Displays top 10 runs batted in leaders.

         WINS: Displays top 10 pitchers by number of wins.

          ERA: Displays top 10 pitchers by earned run average.

        SAVES: Displays top 10 pitches by number of saves.

 SCHEDULE -- Lets you view the upcoming games in the season.  (The game with the
             blinking baseball is the next game to be played.)

      END -- Ends the game, and reminds you to hold Reset while shutting down
             the power to save your game to the battery backup.

To continue a season, simply select START from the SEASON menu (as you did to 
begin a season) to resume where you left off.

Once the league-leading team comes close to securing first place, it will start 
to display the "magic number" for that team to clinch.  (Every game that team 
wins, and every game the second-place team loses, reduces the magic number by 1; 
once the magic number reaches zero, the first-place team is guaranteed of 
winning the division.)  If multiple teams finish at the top of the division, a 
single-elimination playoff will take place to determine the winner.  Note that 
there are no other playoffs in the game; no best-of-seven championship or 
anything like that.

When a team has clinched the season, you will get a few of the typical sports 
celebration animations of the time; the team circling and tossing one of its own 
members into the air, high-fives and things like that.  Nothing all that 
special, but then again this is an 8-bit sports game weíre talking about, not a 
32-bit Final Fantasy.  The rest of the games in the season will still have to be 
played, until finally at the end the game will tell you that it will store the 
statistics for this season until the season is erased.  (Select START from the 
SEASON menu and youíll go straight to the Sports News screen and be able to 
select whatever standings you want to see.)

| EDIT MODE |                                                         [ Z.1000 ]

To begin Edit Mode, select ENTER after selecting it EDIT from the main menu.  
You will then be asked to choose a team on which to base the edit; selecting an 
already-edited team will allow you to re-edit that team.  Note that while you 
can still play as the original team in Exhibition mode, if you have edited a 
team, the original team will not be available in Season mode.  Also note that 
the edited team will inherit the "base team"ís colours (see Team Stats below for 
colours for each team) and, for Ultra Teams, the number of Ultra Points per 

EDITING BATTERS                                                       [ Z.1010 ]

You will then be taken to the Batters Screen.  Your cursor will be at the top of 
the screen, where you can input the teamís name.  Move your cursor left or right 
to select a letter, then press A to move forward through the alphabet or B to 
move backward.  Team names can be up to ten letters long, but must start with an 
E.  Available characters are all the letters and a space.

After selecting the name, move the cursor down to enter the player information.  
Note that you will start with the base teamís names (NAME), batting side (BAT) 
and position (P), but you can change these; however, everyoneís statistics will 
be reduced to a .150 AV (batting average), 0 HR (home runs), 0 R (running 
ability) and 0 F (fielding ability).  However, you will have a certain amount of 
points you can add to the whole team.  If youíre editing a regular team, youíll 
have an extra 1.200 AV, 150 HR, 130 R and 200 F to distribute, while Ultra Teams 
get 2.400 AV, 250 HR, 130 R and 250 F to distribute.  (You canít reduce AV below 
.150 to gain more points to distribute to other players.)

Editing player names works the same as editing the team name.  To change batting 
side, simply press A or B while over the given playerís batting side.  To change 
position, however, first position the cursor over the position you want to give 
to someone else and press A.  Then move the cursor to that playerís row and 
press A to set the position, or B to cancel out.  Note that you cannot re-assign 
pitch hitter (PH) status.

Editing AV, HR, R and F works just like editing names; move the cursor to the 
digit you want to change, then press A to increase it or B to decrease it.  Note 
that you must select each digit individually; while you can move an AV from .150 
to .750 by pressing A 600 times while on the 0, itís a lot easier to press left 
twice to put the cursor on the 1, then press A 6 times.  Players are limited to 
a .750 AV, 99 HR, 99 R and 99 F, although anything above 50 in either of the 
latter two categories is really overkill.

In terms of strategy for editing batters, try to keep people balanced; a good 
strategy is to start out by increasing everyoneís base stats a bit (say, to .200 
AV, 5 HR, 3 R and 5 F), then boost them from there.  Typical baseball lineup 
strategy will help you; put your speediest guy as the leadoff hitter, your power 
hitters third and fourth.  In terms of F, your infielders should have higher 
numbers than your outfielders, simply because theyíll handle the ball more often 
on defence.  Also, be sure you have worthwhile pinch-hitters; make sure you have 
one high-AV hitter and one high-HR hitter among them, just in case.  When youíre 
happy with your selections, press Start to move on to the Pitchers Screen.

EDITING PITCHERS                                                      [ Z.1020 ]

For some reason, you can re-edit your team name on the Pitchers Screen if you 
want.  The controls on the Pitchers menu are roughly the same as those on the 
Batters Screen; player names (NAME) work the same, throwing style (THR) toggles 
between the four options (L = left-handed, R = right-handed, O = overhand throw, 
U = underhand throw).  All pitchers start with a base of 0.00 ERA (earned run 
average), 62 SPD (throwing speed), 0 R (right curve), 0 L (left curve), 0 F 
(fork) and 0 ST (stamina).  Regular teams get 18.00 ERA, 180 SPD, 35 R, 35 L, 20 
F and 160 ST to distribute; Ultra Teams get 10.00 ERA, 240 SPD, 45 R, 45 L, 30 F 
and 180 ST to distribute.  (Again, you canít reduce SPD below 62 and give the 
extra points to other players.)

Note that unlike other stats, you MUST distribute every point of ERA you have; 
ERA is a negative stat where a lower number is better, so to keep everyone at 
0.00 ERA would make them all super-pitchers.  (Strangely, in Super Baseball 
Simulator 1.000, you didnít have to distribute ERA if you didnít want to.)  SPD 
can go as high as 124 for an individual pitcher but no higher, and ST is 
likewise limited to 99; pitchers can receive the entire allotment of R, L or F, 
but that, again, would be overkill.

When editing pitchers, again, balance is key.  When youíre just playing against 
the computer you donít need much variety, but when playing against human 
opponents it helps to have a variety of pitchers; one whoís good at throwing 
curveballs, another whoís a fastball expert, and so on.  Keeping a couple of 
underhand pitchers is a good idea too; for some reason many people, including 
myself, have a harder time hitting pitches from an underhand pitcher than an 
overhand pitcher.  Also, remember that the last two pitchers on the list are 
relievers, so they should have lower stamina.  (They "eat up" stamina faster 
within the game anyway.)

If youíre done editing pitchers, press Start to have a menu pop up in the upper-
right corner.  Select BATTER to return to the Batter Screen.  If youíre editing 
a regular team, select END to finish editing the team; if youíre editing an 
Ultra Team, select ULTRA to go to Ultra Editing.

EDITING ULTRA PLAYS                                                   [ Z.1030 ]

Your batters will be listed at the top of the screen in two columns.  Note that 
the columns read from left to right, i.e. the second batter is at the top of the 
right-handed column, not second from the top on the left-hand column.  You will 
have fifteen Ultra Plays to distribute among your batters, and ten Ultra Pitches 
to distribute among your pitchers.  (Remember that pitchers cannot have Ultra 
Hits or Ultra Fielding.)

To give a player an Ultra Play, move the cursor to the left of that playerís 
name and press A.  For batters, a menu will appear at the bottom of the screen 
with the Ultra Hits and Ultra Fielding icons; moving the cursor to the left of 
each one will display the Ultra Playís name at the bottom of the left-hand 
window.  Note that each player can have only one Ultra Hit and one Ultra 
Fielding; if you select another Ultra Hit or Ultra Fielding after already 
selecting one, it will replace the previous selection.  Multiple players can 
have the same Ultra Play; in fact, a team where everyone has Missile Hit is 
probably the cheapest way to guaranteed victory in the game.  To exit out of 
that playerís Ultra Plays menu, press B.  To clear the selections for a player, 
move the cursor to the left of that playerís name and press B.

Selecting Ultra Pitches for pitchers works similarly, although each pitcher can 
have up to four different Ultra Pitches.  Note that you can select the same 
Ultra Pitch more than once for the same player, although thereís no sense in 
that because then other pitchers canít have as many Ultra Pitches.  If youíve 
already selected four Ultra Pitches for a pitcher, selecting a fifth Ultra Pitch 
will cause that pitch to replace the fourth one.  As with batters, press B when 
youíre done editing a pitcherís Ultra Pitches, and press B while the cursor is 
next to the pitcherís name to remove all the Ultra Pitches for that player.  
When youíre done editing, press Start to bring up a menu in the upper-right hand 
corner; select PITCHER to go back to the Pitchers Screen, or select END to save 
the team.

As for strategy, my advice is to play the game with the preset Ultra Teams a few 
times, find out what Ultra Plays work best for you, and use them.  Try not to 
assign Ultra Plays that donít fit with the playerís stats, though; for example, 
Cannon Hit doesnít do much for a high-HR hitter, because whenever Cannon Hit is 
activated, the batter can never generate enough power to get the ball out of the 
park for a home run.  Also, Iíd advise just leaving Ultra Fielding alone; itís 
rarely of any use, and when you do try to use it, youíll likely just spend five 
Ultra Points and fail at what you were trying to do anyway, if not make it

The New League mode is fairly self-explanatory.  Youíll be taken to a screen 
showing the three pre-set leagues (with edited teams substituted in the place of 
their base teams if applicable); simply move your cursor around to each team you 
want in the league, then press A to select that team.  Once youíve selected six 
teams, select END to set your Original League, or RETRY to start over.

These statistics are taken from the cartridge itself, and represent 
programmed statistics.  The first line will give the teamís logo (usually the 
letters within it), then their full name.  (Note that the first two letters of 
the full name are used in the various statistic-tracking devices in the game, 
and may differ from the letters in the logo.)  The second line gives the teamís 
colours, and for Ultra Teams, the amount of Ultra Points each team starts with 
are listed below that.

Key to Batters:

  BA -- Batting Order, or what order the player normally bats in the lineup.
        Pitchers automatically bat in the ninth spot.  (No designated hitter.)
        PH designates a pinch-hitter.

NAME -- Player name.

 BAT -- Whether the player bats right-handed or left-handed.

   P -- Position.

        1B = First Base  2B = Second Base  3B = Third Base    SS = Shortstop
         C = Catcher     LF = Left Field   CF = Centre Field  RF = Right Field

AVG. -- Batting Average, where .000 = the player never gets a hit and
        1.000 = the player always gets a hit.  E.g., if a player has a batting
        average of .250, s/he will get a hit one out of every four at-bats.

  HR -- Number of home runs the player should get over the course of a season.
        Higher number means more hitting power.

   R -- Running ability.  Higher number means faster movement on the field.

   F -- Fielding ability.  Higher number means fewer errors while on defence.

LTRA -- Ultra Hits and Ultra Fielding available (if any).  Omitted from non-
        Ultra Teams to conserve space.

Key to Pitchers:

NAME -- Player name.

  TH -- Throwing style.

        RO = Right-handed, overhand      LO = Left-handed, overhand
        RU = Right-handed, underhand     LU = Left-handed, underhand

 ERA -- Earned runned average.  How many earned runs a pitcher should give up
        for every nine innings pitched.  (Thus, lower is better.)  Lower number
        means higher overall pitching quality.

 SPD -- Maximum pitching speed.  (This is more theoretical; higher speeds than
        those listed can be achieved during gameplay.)

   R -- Right curve.  Higher number means curveballs will curve more to the
        right after being pitched.

   L -- Left curve.  Higher number means curveballs will curve more to the
        left after being pitched.

   F -- Fork ball.  Higher number means slower slow ball.

  ST -- Stamina.  Higher number means the pitcher can throw more pitches
        without getting tired.

LTRA -- Ultra Pitches available (if any).  Omitted from non-Ultra Teams to
        conserve space.

Note that pitchers do not have listed batting stats; all pitchers automatically 
receive the following offensive stats (from manual):

AVG.  HR  R  F
.150   0  7 16

Simulator 1.000.  I got one of the first Game Genies, so the codebook that came 
with it didnít even have any Baseball Simulator 1.000 codes inside.  These are

Acknowledgments for sources); if you know of any other codes, theyíd be greatly 

001. PESEPTLA   1 strike and you're out
002. ZESEPTLA   2 strikes and you're out
003. IESEPTLA   5 strikes and you're out
004. SZVAYTVT   Strikes aren't counted
005. SZNAATVT   Balls aren't counted
006. PESALTGA   1 ball and you walk
