Pete Rose Baseball is a multiplatform video game published by Absolute for the Atari 2600 and the Atari 7800.[3][4]

Gameplay[edit]

The game was a notable improvement over previous Atari 2600 baseball games such as Home Run and RealSports Baseball. The game features a "behind the pitcher" viewpoint for pitching and batting, a viewpoint which was introduced by the classic computer game Hardball. In addition, the game features different "bird's eye" views of the field depending on where the ball is hit; there are two infield views (one for each half of the infield) and three outfield views (left field, center field, and right field).

Re-release[edit]

When the game was re-released by Activision (who bought Absolute's video game properties after Absolute folded in 1995) for inclusion in Activision Anthology, the game was renamed Baseball, due to the license deal with Pete Rose having expired.
