Rock Ridge Games Takes You Out to the Ball Game with First Pitch Baseball on the iPhone

Pressure Mounts as First Pitch Baseball Debuts in App Store

Rock Ridge Games, recently founded by industry veterans to develop quality iPhone games, is pleased to announce its first title, First Pitch Baseball, is now available in the Apple App Store. Just in time for All-Star Weekend, Rock Ridge is bringing all the pressure of the pitcher’s mound to your iPhone for an introductory price of 99 cents. In First Pitch Baseball, players find themselves alone on the mound, dealing with the exhilarating anxiety of throwing the first pitch in a stadium full of screaming fans.

Next week, President Obama will take to the mound at the All-Star Game to show the world his first pitch skills. Aside from being a must-have presidential training tool, First Pitch Baseball lets players share the spotlight, the stress, and the accompanying glory or embarrassment of throwing out a first pitch. From city mayors to radio personalities, Olympic athletes and astronauts, many have tried - but few have succeeded in throwing out a first pitch strike. Inspired by the worst failures in first pitch history, First Pitch Baseball gives you the opportunity to step up to the mound and succeed where so many other notables have not.

In a simplistically addictive challenge, First Pitch Baseball requires sharp eyes and quick fingers to throw accurate pitches and impress the crowd. Just tap on the screen to put the First Pitch target in motion, and tap again when the ball is over the catcher’s mitt to throw a strike. It’s easy for anyone to pick up and play and a perfect way to pass the time during the stadium commute, pre-game downtime, or all the commercial breaks between innings.

“We are gamers first, developers second. The most important thing is making games we want to play - games that are fun, accessible and unique,” said Mike Mann, President of Rock Ridge Games. “First Pitch Baseball is a timely way for us to get our feet wet in the App Store – with our experience in developing sports games, it was a logical first choice, and great timing to coincide with the president’s All-Star Game pitch.”

To celebrate the biggest first pitch of the year, First Pitch Baseball is now available for an introductory price of 99 cents, through All-Star Weekend. Also stay tuned for upcoming game updates, including tools to track your perfect pitches and longest streak. Will you become a First Pitch all-star, or will you crack under pressure?
