'Ultimate Baseball Online' - 11 New Screens

Ultimate Baseball Online is the first ever Massively Multiplayer Online Sports Game (MMOSG), allowing two teams to compete in a 3D virtual stadium. Each participant controls a player for a specific position on a team and gamers can build their athlete’s skills by practicing pitching, fielding or batting. The UBO universe will allow league play, pick up games and a farm system, just like the real life big leagues.

The full version of Ultimate Baseball Online is a first-of-its-kind "massively multi-player" sports game that allows fans to play interactive baseball over their computer's broadband connection. With stunning graphics and surround-sound audio reactions from the crowd, participants control customized virtual characters for each position and compete together against other UBO gamers. Through their avatar-players bat, pitch, field, run, steal and control a virtual player that plays a specific field position (e.g. short stop, pitcher, left field,). Participants can practice, play pick-up games, join or found their own teams, compete against rival teams, play in unique tournament settings, and win a league championship during the post-season play. Gamers build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the online field against other real human participants.

On May 12, ESPN360 will make a full 9-on-9 interactive version of Ultimate Baseball Online available to all ESPN360 users in a Beta trial. To learn more about UBO and Spring Training visit or
