                                      Introduction
    ================================================================================
    
      There is just something about Baseball that has kept Americans interested
      in baseball for oh so many years.  I'm not sure if it's the players, the
      home runs, the bottom of the 9th suspense, or the fields the players play
      on.  Whatever it is, it's kept me watching baseball for several years, and
      there's no signs of me stopping.
    
      MVP Baseball has been around for several years now, but its future is unclear
      at the moment because of a series of exclusive contracts game manufacturers
      have made with the major sports organizations.  This will be the last baseball
      game from EA Sports in the series, unless they go either with some sort of
      fictional league (and players) or go the college route.  To the best of my
      knowledge, no one has made a college baseball game before; this could be a
      great thing for EA Sports to try given their experience with other collegiate
      sports titles.
    
      Most of the FAQs I've written have been for Strategy titles, this is the first
      Sports game I've written for (if you exclude Wrestling), so it's going to be
      a challenge.  If you have anything you'd like to contribute, big or small,
      don't hesitate to send me an email.  There is a lot to include in this FAQ,
      and I could certainly use the help.

                                       Game Modes
    ================================================================================
    
      MVP Baseball 2005 has more than just one or two different game modes.  Below
      you will find a brief description as to what you can expect to find while in
      that part of the game.
    
       PLAY NOW
       This will give you the opportunity for a quick game of baseball.  You don't
       get the option to choose which stadium you play in, however.
    
       EXHIBITION
    
       Very much the same as Play Now, but you get the option of choosing the
       stadium you're going to be playing in.  As close to a regular season game
       as you can get without actually being in one.
    
       DYNASTY MODE
       You take control of a MLB Organization and play for several years.  You're
       judged against a series of one- and three-year goals.  Every milestone you
       achieve increases your manager rating.  This is very similar to the Owner
       Mode, minus the money aspect for the most part.
    
       OWNER MODE
       Build a park, set ticket prices, and manage the financial aspect of your
       club.  Add all of that to Dynasty Mode, and you get the "NEW" Owner Mode.
    
       MVP ONLINE
       Play online against friends or strangers.  You will need access to the
       Internet, and depending on which game system, a modem of some kind is 
       required.  (ie. PS2 requires the PS2 Online Adapter from Sony).
    
       MINI GAMES
       Perfect your batting and hitting skills in these three mini games.
    
       HOME RUN SHOWDOWN
       Pick a couple of mashers, choose a cumulative distance, and swing for the
       bleachers.  The first player to hit the total distance target wins.
    
       MANAGER MODE
       You control the game strategy, while leaving the on-the-field execution to
       the players in this single-player mode.
    
       SCENARIO EDITOR
       Two outs, bottom of the ninth- create any scenario and play it out to see
       how you do.
    
    
    ================================================================================
                                    Player Positions
    ================================================================================
    
      There are a number of positions for players to play at.  If you aren't at
      all familiar with baseball, this section will give you a much better idea
      of who does what on the field.
    
      Pitcher (P) - Charged with delivering the ball to the plate in a manner 
      difficult for a batter to hit.  Good throwing speed is good indication of 
      a pitcher, but accuracy is more important.  They should be tough, smart, 
      and retain their composure when faced with a challenging situation.  Will 
      be required to 'cover' home plate on a short pop fly or foul when there 
      are runners on third.
    
      Catcher (C) - Generally the team leader while on the field since they 
      are the only player facing all the other players.  The catcher will: track
      the count on the batter; track the number of outs; remind fielders of 
      their position on the field; back up 1st base on every infield play; and 
      generally spend most of the time getting up and down from the squat 
      position.  Makes my calves hurt just thinking about it!  This player should
      be your most rugged and quickest thinking individual.
    
      First Base (1B) - The perfect place for a 'lefty' who can catch the ball 
      well.  Balls will be bouncing in, flying in, on target and off target, so
      their primary responsibility will be to catch and/or stop the ball. 
      Strength and size are also strong determining factors.  Strong concentration
      skills will also be a necessity, as they will potentially be involved in 
      every play.
    
      Second Base (2B) - Size and stature are of little importance.  Speed, 
      quickness and good fielding will be the determining factors.  Must be able 
      to 'think-ahead' when there are base runners, I.e. "If the ball is hit to 
      me, I will touch second base, or tag the runner, and then throw to first".
    
      Third Base (3B) - This player should have excellent forward and lateral 
      speed, as most balls hit at them will be short, and/or to the players' 
      left.  They should be able to throw the ball on a dead-run and be able 
      to field the ball barehanded.  They are the furthest from first, so a
      strong throwing arm is required.
    
      Shortstop (SS) - This player has more ground to cover than any other 
      player does and must be fast, quick, agile and have a strong throwing 
      arm.  The shortstop will potentially field more ground balls, in more
      off-balance positions, than any other player.  Being able to 'think-ahead'
      is required for this position as well.  This position will backup the 
      second baseman on any throws to second.
    
      Left Fielder (LF) - Of all outfield positions, this player should have 
      the weakest arm, as they do not generally throw the ball as far. They
      still require good fielding and catching skills and backup third on 
      pick-off attempts from the catcher or pitcher.
    
      Center Fielder (CF) - This will be the player that has the best 
      combination of speed and throwing distance.  Like shortstop, they cover
      more 'grass' than any other player and, most likely, will catch the most
      fly balls.  They must backup second on all bunts and throws from the
      catcher.
    
      Right Fielder (RF) - As well as the requirements above should be a 
      good 'think-ahead' player.  This player backs up first base on all
      throws from the catcher and all bunted balls, since the catcher must 
      be available for fielding the ball.  They backup second on any ball
      thrown from the left of the diamond. I.e. shortstop, third base or
      foul territory.
    
    
    ================================================================================
                                        Hitting
    ================================================================================
    
      Hitting well can be a difficult thing to do.  Simply hitting the ball into
      the field of play can be done by just about anyone.  Slicing a ball down
      the first or third base line just out of the reach of the first or third
      baseman is very difficult.  Other than hitting the ball to specific parts
      of the field, hitting a home run is by no means a piece of cake; in fact,
      you'll likely find it to be rather difficult for a while.
    
      TIMING
    
      The single most important of hitting is timing.  You'll hear this from just
      about every MVP Baseball 2005 player in message boards and chat rooms.  You
      must get your timing down!  This takes time and patience, for you must get
      accustomed to the game's various pitches.  If you're thrown two Fastballs,
      don't be surprised if you're thrown a slower pitch like a Changeup to get you
      to strike out.  The pitches have varying speeds and movements.  A Fastball
      and say a Slider are very different.  Explaining timing is impossible; it's
      just something you have to figure out.  It's muscle memory, instincts, a
      little bit of everything.
    
      In order to get your timing down, I recommend using the Hitting Mini-Game.
      The Home Run Showdown isn't a good place to start - the split screen thing
      makes it more difficult in my opinion to work on your hitting - get started
      in the Hitting Mini-Game.  You not only work on timing, but you can learn
      to hit the ball to certain parts of the field, using the Analog Stick.
    
    
      HOT/COLD ZONES
    
      Other than timing, you need to work on hitting when the pitch is thrown in
      a certain pitch location.  If you have the Hot/Cold Zones option turned on
      (it's on by Default), you will see red, white, and clear boxes.  Each player 
      has different Hot and Cold areas within the strike zone.  These are
      represented as blue and red squares on the strike zone grid.  As you might 
      imagine, a player will be worse at hitting a pitch in his Cold zone, and
      better at hitting one when it's pitched into his Hot zone.  Clear spaces
      in the grid give no real dis/advantage to the hitter.
    
      The general idea with the Hot/Cold Zones is to wait for a pitch to be thrown
      into your Hot Zone, so you can either get a base hit, or drive it over the
      wall for a Home Run.  As with timing, this is difficult to get down, so to
      speak.  It's patience and intuition.
    
    
      ANALOG STICK
    
      This isn't very difficult to figure out.  Using the Analog Stick in
      coordination with your ability to determine the pitch type and location can
      turn into some great offensive games.
    
        Up/Left - For a right hand hitter, you'd only want to use this if you
                  got a good pitch up and in and you wanted to hit it over the
                  fence.  Otherwise, you'll likely pop it up to the Left-Fielder.
    
                  For a left hand hitter who got a pitch high and outside, you 
                  could be able to take the pitcher deep to the opposite 
                  field.  If you're unable to take it deep, you'll likely pop 
                  it out to the Left-Fielder.
    
        Up - If you hold Up on the Analog Stick, you'll likely drive the ball deep
             to the outfield.  Depending on the situation, it could end up being
             a base hit, a pop up, or a Home Run.  Just keep two things in mind.
    
             One: Since you're using an uppercut swing, you will likely miss a
             ball thrown low in the Strike Zone.
    
             Two: The fence in Center Field is much deeper than that of the Left/
             Right Field, so don't count on too many balls being hit over the
             Center Field wall.
    
        Up/Right - This is pretty much the opposite of what is written above in the
                   Up/Left section.
    
        Left - For a right hand hitter, an inside pitch could be ripped down the
               line and in between the Third Baseman and Left-Fielder.  Depending
               on how close the Left-Fielder is playing to the Left Field line,
               you will likely get a single or perhaps even a double if you're
               fast on your feet.  It's certainly not going to lead to a home run.
    
               For a left hand hitter, an outside pitch could be hit down the
               line and in between the Third Baseman and Left-Fielder.  Depending
               on how close the Left-Fielder is playing to the Left Field line,
               you will likely get a single or perhaps even a double if you're
               fast on your feet.  It's certainly not going to lead to a home run.
    
        Zero - I'm referring it to position zero, or as some may say "neutral".
               This could result in just about anything, it's especially going
               to depend on pitch type and location.  It's certainly not going
               to lead to a home run.  I've used this a few times if the Second
               Baseman is playing too close to First, with the intent of hitting
               the ball right to Second Base and watch it roll out the Center
               Fielder.
    
        Right - This is pretty much the opposite of what is written above in the
                Left section.
    
        Down/Left - I have to admit I don't use the Down positions on the Analog
                    Stick too often, since it's so easy to find yourself either
                    grounding out or even getting into a double play.  An
                    inside pitch (middle or low) to a right handed hitter, or an
                    outside pitch (middle or low) to a left handed hitter, will
                    likely ground the ball towards Third Base or to the Shortstop.
    
        Down - As with the "Zero" or "Neutral" position, I usually use this if
               the Second Baseman is playing too close to First base, with the
               intent of hitting the ball right to Second Base and watch it roll 
               out the Center Fielder.  Even if the Second Baseman does get to the
               ball after diving, he may not be able to throw out a fast hitter.
               Don't use this at a high pitch.  The ideal pitch location for this
               would be middle or middle-low.
    
        Down/Right - This is pretty much the opposite of what is written above in
                     the Down/Left section.
    
    
      HITTER'S EYE
    
      A great deal of the marketing of this game is being spend talking about the
      new Hitter's Eye feature in the game.  Some players have found it more
      useful than others.  You can turn it off if you wish.  The general idea of it
      is to tell you which pitch type is coming.  Just as the pitch is being
      thrown, the ball will change colors, depending on which pitch is coming your
      way.  Depending on the Camera View/Angle you have chosen, it could be of
      some help.  Also, some pitchers have bizarre stances, throwing manerisms,
      etc, which could do much of the same as the Camera Angle.
    
      Here is a list of the colors and which pitch(es) they represent:
    
      White  = Fastball/Cutter
      Red    = Curveball/Screwball/Slider/Slurve
      Purple = Sinker/Splitter/Forkball
      Orange = Knuckler
      Green  = Palmball/Changeup
    
    
      HITTER'S FEET
    
      In order to help you hit the Inside/Outside pitches, you should really
      consider playing around with where you are standing in the batter's box.
      When I started playing the game, I didn't bother moving around at all, but
      after I did, my number of hits improved by about 10-15%.  Some situations
      where this could come in handy is Up & In pitches and Low & Away pitches.
      Moving yourself around in the box can improve your odds of making contact
      on those pitches.
      
      Holding L2 + moving the Left Analog Stick Right or Left will move your feet
      in the batter's box.
    
    
      BAD PITCHES
    
      As a pitcher wears down over the course of a game, he's likely going to make
      mistakes.  Inside pitches may end up almost hitting you or they could end up
      on the outside corner of the plate.  When the pitcher misses his pitch, you
      can tell because there is a little Circle on the screen.  If the pitch
      completely misses the strike zone, the Circle will appear just before the
      pitch crosses the plate (to help you), but it will have a little "X" inside
      of it.  DO NOT SWING AT THESE!  If you swing, you're going to miss them
      completely.  A missed pitch in your Hot Zone will show up as light red, 
      one in your Cold Zone will show up as light blue, and one in a Neutral Zone 
      will be light gray.   A missed pitch is a major opportunity for you to 
      make something happen, as it is easier to see than any other pitch.

                                        Pitching
    ================================================================================
    
      Between Pitching, Fielding, and Hitting, I'm best at pitching, although I'm
      by no means superb at it.  It's something that you must work on, like any
      other aspect of the game.
    
      In order to pitch well, you're going to need to know your pitcher, among
      other things.  Chances are, your pitcher doesn't have a great ability to
      throw all of his pitches.  He likely excels at one or two, but the other one
      or two probably don't break much over the plate.  Other than how much the
      ball breaks, pitch placement is also important.
    
      If you're going to be successful, you're going to have to paint the corners,
      as it's called.  Throwing pitches to the edges of the pitching box will
      increase the likelihood you'll either strike the batter out or see him pop
      out.  Don't just stick inside the box, go outside of it.  If you've ever
      seen a baseball game in person or on television, you'll see pitchers
      routinely throwing balls out of the strike zone.  The reason for this is
      not that they're bad pitchers, it's to get the batter to chase the pitch,
      hopefully missing it completely.  Because it works in real games, it does
      work in the video game.  Make the hitters chase the ball!
      
      Regardless of where you throw the ball, you will also need to mix up your
      pitches.  Even if you have one of the finest pitchers in the game, you're
      not going to do well is you only throw fastballs.  Throw curveballs, fast-
      balls, splitters, whatever is in your arsenal or pitches.  Also, don't forget
      to switch up the speed of your pitches.  Don't let the hitter get 
      comfortable.

                           Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
    ================================================================================
    
        This is the section I've dedicated to questions that I deem are asked
        quite a bit, and instead of receiving the same questions over and over,
        they will be asked and answered below.  Be sure to read this section
        prior to asking me a question.
    
    
        Q:  I lost my manual - can you send me yours?
    
        A:  No.  This kind of question is one I don't like to answer.  Far too
            many people are using pirated copies.  If you use a pirated version,
            obviously there's no printed manual.
    
    
        Q:  Can retired players become managers?
    
        A:  No.
    
    
        Q:  Why isn't Barry Bonds in the game?
    
        A:  Barry Bonds, for one reason or another, decided not to sign with the
            player's union.  Because of this, EA Sports cannot legally include
            him in the game.  They did, however, include him, but under another
            name.  He's Jon Dowd.  If you want him to look like Barry Bonds,
            you'll have to edit his face, jersey number, etc.  In case you
            need help with this, try this information submitted to me by Eddie W.
    
            Face: 14
            Hair Color: 1
            Hair: 1
            Facial: 1
            Bat Color: 7
            Glove: 3
            Elbow: 1
            Shin: None
            Wrist: 3 (too bad they aren't black)
            Socks: Low
            Batting Gloves: On
            Stance: E.Chavez
    
    
        Q:  What's up with the red/green fielding circles?
    
        A:  When the ball is in the air, the red color is indicating to you to
            get ready to catch it.  Green means you should jump to rob the batter
            from a home run (obviously this is when you are next to the wall).
    
    
        Q:  When I lead off, I keep getting picked off.  Please help!
    
        A:  Well, when you lead off, you do run the risk of getting picked off.
            Perhaps you should go into the Options and choose Automatic Retreat
            instead of Manual Retreat.  This will give the retreat option to the
            computer to do, instead of relying on you.
    
    
        Q:  Where can I find updated rosters?
    
        A:  EA has a downloadable roster update through the PS2 online adapter,
            and I'm sure there are ways for people to download official rosters
            for their XBox or PC.  If you're looking for a Sharkport or Max Drive
            roster update, check out sites like http://www.ps2rosters.com,
            http://www.geekrosters.com, or http://www.gamefaqs.com
    
    
        Q:  What's the Cooperstown Effect?
    
        A:  This gives the menus an old, yellow look.  The graphics in general
            change, making it look like you're watching an old tape of a game from
            several decades ago.
    
    
        Q:  Can I change the number of games I have to play in a season?
    
        A:  No.  If you don't want to play them, Sim or Manage them.
    
    
        Q:  I hit an inside-the-park-home run.  Why am I not credited with a home
            run?
    
        A:  It's a bug in the game.  Instead of getting credited with a HR, you
            get a Triple.
    
    
        Q:  When a pitch is being thrown, why is it grey/black?
    
        A:  It's EA's attempt to bring more realism to the game, and it's intended
            to be a shadow.  If you've been to a baseball game during the
            afternoon, eventually, there is some sort of shadow on the in-field,
            which can affect the players.
    
    
        Q:  How can I keep my players happy?
    
        A:  Offer them more money and time off.  They may want more playing time
            if they're not a starter.  There's no simple way to please everyone.
    
    
        Q:  How can I climb the fence to nab a home run?
    
        A:  I've not been able to "climb" the fence, just jump, and you can do that
            with moving the analog stick towards the wall, while you're standing
            close to the wall.
    
    
        Q:  How can I make money in Owner's Mode?
    
        A:  The question of the century.  90% of the email I receive is about
            making money in the game, and frankly, there's no quick and simple way
            to make money in the game.  It's something that will take you a long
            time to do.
    
            Winning home games brings in money, and you'll have to fill those
            seats of yours.  Making the playoffs is essential if you're going to be
            making money.  Adding more seating, concessions, etc, and you'll
            eventually get there.  As manager, you will also have to cut your
            payroll in some areas eventually.  Sometimes, you'll come across a
            player who just isn't what he used to be, and is taking up a large
            chunk of your payroll (Sammy Sosa, for example).  Cut him loose and
            invest in another player.
    
    
        Q:  Where's MVP Baseball 2006?
    
        A:  Because EA lost its rights to the players and stadiums in the MLB, they
            aren't allowed to release a baseball game featuring MLB players
            and stadiums.  Since they still wanted a baseball game, they went the
            college route, with MVP 06 NCAA Baseball, released in January of 2006.
            If you're looking for a game for the "new" season, you'll have to go
            with something like MLB '06: The Show from SCEA.  I haven't tried that
            game, so I cannot offer any personal opinions on the gameplay in

                  ---------------------------------------------------
    
                  Now that our ties are served
                  As we say goodbye
                  Let us not wonder whether
                  We are ready to take the dive
    
                  Let it dive, let it die, let it fade out of sight
                  Let it drag us down, let it fade
    
                  Grieve, but not grieve together
                  Mourn with nothing to say
                  Gone are those times forever
                  Lost as those sweet warm other days
    
                  Let it dive, let it die, let it fade out of sight
                  Let it drag us down, let it come between you and I
                  Let it dive, let it die, let it fade
    
                  Where we born to despair
                  Deeds done but not forgiven?
                  There will always be something there
                  As long as one of us goes on living
    
                  Let it dive, let it die
                  Let it fade out of sight
                  Let it drag us down, let it come between you and I
                  What's done is done, no reason to apologize
                  Let it dive, let it die, let it fade

                  ---------------------------------------------------
    
                  Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
                  Tessie is the tune they always sung
                  Tessie echoed April through October nights
                  After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
                  Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
                  Tessie is a maiden with a love
                  She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
                  She's got a comment full of love
                  And sometimes when the game is on the line
                  Tessie always carried them away
                  Up the road from third base to Huntington
                  The boys will always sing and sway
    
                  Two! Three! Four!
    
                  Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
                  We're not here to mess around
                  Boston, you know we love you madly
                  Hear the crowd roar to your sound
                  Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
                  You know we couldn't live without you
                  Tessie, you are the only only only
    
                  The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
                  They found their seats had all been sold
                  McGreevey led the charge into the park
                  Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
                  The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
                  Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
                  Up from third base to Huntington
                  They'd sing another victory song
    
                  Two! Three! Four!
    
                  Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
                  We're not here to mess around
                  Boston, you know we love you madly
                  Hear the crowd roar to your sound
                  Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
                  You know we couldn't live without you
                  Tessie, you are the only only only
    
                  The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright

                  He rocks it well
                  He rocks his Oakleys and his Oakley loaf from hell
                  He’s spinning donuts out in front of Taco Bell
                  The girls are wanting him so bad and he can tell
    
                  I shred for Hella days
                  You know I can
                  4 finger tapping yeah Van Halen is the man

                  ready, steady
                  these days are high and heady
                  there’s so much more left to say
                  but there’s ego in my way
    
                  He plays the ladies man
                  He plays it cool
                  I play my guitar and I play it by the rules
                  You think you rock so hard I challenge you to duel
                  After school after school after school

                  ---------------------------------------------------
    
                  He was in the habit of taking things for granted, granted 
    	      there wasn't much for him to take
                  and the only thing constant was the constant reminder he'd
    	      never change
                  Tight fisted with his compliments it didnt seem to bother him
                  that talk is only cheaper talkin' back
                  and the only thing constant was the constant reminder he'd 
    	      never change
                  and so she yelled at him:
    
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  owe me an IOU,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  Don't think that I'll forget,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  owe me an IOU,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  Don't think that I'll forget,
                  I know what I should get this time
    
                  She was in the habit of re-applying make up, make up
                  Eating up my crocodile tears
                  And the only thing constant was the constant reminder she'd 
    	      never change
                  A barely individual cleverly traditional she couldnt seem to 
    	      make up her mind,
                  And the only thing constant was the constant reminder she'd 
    	      never shine,
                  And so he yelled at her:
    
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  owe me an IOU,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  Dont think that I'll forget,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  owe me an IOU,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  Dont think that I'll forget,
                  I know what I should get this time
    
                  Oh, What isnt real,
                  I dont know,
                  but I have this feeling,(?)
                  Whats the deal,
                  I dont know,
                  but I have this feeling,(?)
                  heres what I think,
                  that it is if it is,
                  and this might just work
    
                  They were in the habit of taking things for granted granted
                  they never quite knew what they had
                  And the only thing constant was the constant reminder they'd
    	      never change,
                  And so they yelled out loud:
    
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  owe me an IOU,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  Dont think that I'll forget,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  owe me an IOU,
                  You owe me an IOU,
                  Dont think that I'll forget,
                  I know what I should get yeah I know what I should get this time.

                                    "Honest Mistake"
                  ---------------------------------------------------
    
                  People
                  They don't mean a thing to you
                  They move right through you
                  Just like your breath
                  But sometimes
                  I still think of you
                  And I just wanted to
                  Just wanted you to know
                  My old friend...
                  I swear I never meant for this
                  I never meant...
    
                  Don't look at me that way
                  It was an honest mistake
                  Don't look at me that way
                  It was an honest mistake
                  An honest mistake
    
                  Sometimes
                  I forget I'm still awake
                  I fuck up and say these things out loud
    
                  My old friend...
                  I sweat I never meant for this
                  I never meant...
    
                  Don't look at me that way
                  It was an honest mistake
                  Don't look at me that way
                  It was an honest mistake
                  An honest mistake
    
                  Don't look at me that way
                  It was an honest mistake
                  Don't look at me that way
                  It was an honest mistake
                  An honest mistake

                  ---------------------------------------------------
    
                  The kids, the sound, the passion
                  We got our hopes we have our say
                  No rules, no fakes, no fashion anyway
                  The friends, the fun, the meaning
                  We’re gonna have it our own way, oh, oh
                  The sweat, the blood, the feeling
                  We came here to play
    
                  'Cause we got the noise!
    
                  (Whoo-hooo whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise so here we go

                  (Whoo-hooo whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise and we don't stop
    
                  The bored, the scarred, the broken
                  Together we will take a stand
                  The life, the choice, the moment's in our hand
                  The time (the time!), the place (the place!), the message 
                  that we try to send oh, oh
    
                  Create (create!), take action make your demands, make your 
                  demands, demands now
    
                  We got the noise!
    
                  (Whoo-hooo whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise so here we go

                  (Whoo-hooo, whoo-hooo)
                  All you boys, all you girls, put it on, turn it up
                  (Whoo-hooo whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise, c'mon, let's go
    
                  We got the noise! (Whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise! (We got it! We got it!)
                  We got the noise! (Whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise and we don’t...
    
                  Let our friends down
                  Rest in silence
                  We amplify
                  And get around!
                  'Cause we got the noise!

                  (Whoo-hooo whoo-hooo)
                  We got the noise, c'mon, let's go

                                         Cheats
    ================================================================================
    
      Below are known cheats for the game.  Be sure to follow the directions
      carefully.
    
      UNLOCK EVERYTHING
       - Create a new player named "Katie Roy".  This will unlock all of the
         MVP Rewards (stadiums, jerseys, players, etc.)
    
      HUGE BAT
       - Create a new player named either "Keegan Paterson", "Jacob Paterson",
         or "Isaiah Paterson".  This creates a player with a large bat, increasing
         the odds of hitting a line drive or home run.
    
      RED SOX GREEN JERSEY
       - Create a new player named "Neverlose Sight".  This will unlock the St.
         Patrick Day Jersey for the Boston Red Sox.

        rosters.  Feel free to send me email, asking questions, offering comments
        on the game or FAQ, and offering information for the FAQ.  Your email is
