2000 Pacific Backyard Baseball

Many moons ago, my son liked to play childish games on the computer. Along came Humongous Entertainment's Backyard Baseball 2001.  It was a simple, but fun game of baseball.  Not very realistic, but it kept him off the streets.  I probably played it as much, if not more, than he did.

Included with the game was a set of 10 baseball cards.  Two game characters and eight pro players, depicted in the game as kids.

Pacific also teamed up with Humongous Entertainment to produce some Backyard Football cards in 1999.  But that's another post.


  1. I love these cards! I know I've got them somewhere around my house.

    I absolutely loved the "Backyard" games as a kid. I mastered them pretty quickly, so I always won the games, but it was still a lot of fun.

    I still play the baseball one from time to time.

  2. Good stuff, I played some version of that game, but I can't remember the year off hand. I know mine did not come with cards.

  3. Pablo was awesome in that game.
