Licensing issues[edit]

Barry Bonds does not appear in this title. However, Joe Young, a fictional left fielder, is believed to be a younger switch-hitter version of Bonds. Bonds does not appear because he is not a member of the MLB Players Association. Young appears in place of Bonds in all titles. However, there were several fictional characters such as 'Carnival Lane'.
