Presenting an alternative
way to play baseball and ultimately enjoy “America’s favorite pastime”, The
Bigs 2
is ready to deliver a homerun to its eager fans.

Introducing Become a
Legend Mode and Season Mode, fans of the series will have much more replay value
to look forward to. Season Mode will be allowing players to play through one
season as they accumulate stats in an effort to win the World Series. Become a
Legend Mode is giving players the ability to create their own player as they
suffer a career ending injury and must start over in the Mexican League to work
their way back to the MLB. Having customization options to change looks,
celebrations, tattoos and much more, the Become a Legend Mode is shaping up

new modes, Homerun Pinball is back along with dozens of mini-games to play

Prince Fielder as you attempt to hit targets in the outfield and much more.

fail to achieve strikes against their opponents, the batters will achieve base
hits and rack up the points.

Outside of that, players
can expect for legendary players, such as Ichiro and Josh Beckett, to have
legendary abilities to affect the outcome of a game. Ichiro has a cannon for an
arm to throw from the outfield to the catcher without much hesitation and
Beckett has a Legendary fastball that will scare any opponent from swinging too
