Commodore 64 - Pitcher vs. Batter

Nowadays it's hard to imagine a baseball game that doesn't let you get up close and personal, but the first video baseball games only offered a single viewpoint, overlooking the entire field with little bitty players. Hardball helped fix that, introducing different camera angles that automatically switch with the action. A separate image showing who is on base helps players keep tabs on the overall game while still enjoying the detailed showdowns between pitcher and batter.
