Game Information

PSX - Bottom of the 9th Box Art Front

Konami's Bottom of the 9th is the first baseball game on the PlayStation to use polygonal players. Batting and pitching relies on aiming cursors, which can be "locked-on" to make things easier for novices. The game has an MLBPA license for real players from the 1995 season, but no Major League Baseball affiliation, so teams are listed by city name only. Eight fictional stadiums are also available, and a complete season along with statistical tracking can be saved to memory card. Don't want to play a complete season? No problem, the schedule can be shortened to 13, 26 or 52 games. Training Camp mode allows you work on your pitching, hitting, fielding or running skills, and a General Manager mode lets you perform trades. An announcer will keep things lively by calling the action from the booth.

Additional Information

Konami's Bottom of the 9th is the first PlayStation baseball game to feature 3D polygonal players. Batting and pitching both rely on aiming cursors over the plate, which can be "locked" into a fixed position to make things easier for novices. The game features an MLBPA license for authentic players from the 1995 season, but the lack of a Major League Baseball affiliation means teams are listed by city name only.

Eight fictional stadiums are also available, and a complete 162-game season with statistical tracking can be saved. Those interested in an abbreviated schedule can shorten the season to 13, 26, or 52 games. "Training Camp" mode allows you work on your pitching, hitting, fielding, or running skills, while "General Manager" mode lets you perform trades. An announcer will keep things lively by calling the action from the booth.
