is a baseball game that was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System
in November 1988. It was originally known as Pro Yakyuu Family Stadium
in Japan, though renamed to RBI Baseball
. With only an MLBPA licence, it features only the U.S. team names.
Tropes found in the NES RBI Baseball
- Celebration Fanfare: A short tune will play after a player hits an out-of-the-park home run.
- Colour Coded Armies: All of the teams have a palette scheme that closely resembles their official team colours.
- Head Bonk: After an error, the victimised player will have the ball bounce off his head.
- In Name Only: Because Tengen only got hold of the MLBPA, the teams are represented only by the city name.
- Market-Based Title
Tropes found in the first RBI Baseball
- Gretzky Has the Ball: Rich Gedman, Dan Heep and George Brett are all presented as right-handed batters. In real life, they were left-handed batters.
- Joke Character: Rafael Santana, Willie Randolph and Al Pedrique, among others, are players who should be substituted immediately.
- ROM Hack: This is one of the most popular NES games to be modified because of a game editor that changes just about everything in the game.
