Cal Ripken Jr. Baseball is a 1992 sports video game released in 1992 by Mindscape for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was developed by Beam Software and subsequently given North American release by Mindscape.[1]


Due to a lack of licensing from Major League Baseball (MLB), the game features no MLB team names, stadiums, or artwork, and Cal Ripken, Jr. himself is the only non-fictitious player in the game.[2]

The graphics and sound of the SNES version were seen as a "step up" from its Sega Genesis counterpart.
