Well, since you've asked, I can tell you that a truly fine statistical
simulation of Major League Baseball will be available RSN, probably by
this year's All-Star break. I can assure you that it will include just
about everything you could possibly want in such a game. I'm sorry to
say that I cannot reveal it's name, but I can tell you that it is being
developed by two devoted fanatics code-named Perfect Games, Ltd., using
LightspeedC. What's more, it's entirely possible that it will be made
initially available as shareware, although it is also possible that it
will be released as a commercial product if backing can be obtained.
How do I know all of this? I'm one of the two devoted fanatics. Sorry
to have to cloak this message in so much secrecy, but you know how these
things are. Believe me though, we've got an alpha version up and work-
ing, and it is already "insanely great," if we do say so ourselves!
More to follow. Keep an eye on mod.mac.binaries: If we go the share-
ware route, it will show up there long about the end of June. Thanks
for providing me/us the opportunity to pre-announce our product.
