About MVP Baseball 2005
Level the playing field with the EA SPORTS™ Hitter’s Eye in MVP Baseball™ 2005. With unprecedented control of your at-bat, the ability to move in the batter’s box,and the power to read the pitch, master the art of hitting and own the plate with superior offensive tools. An enhanced Dynasty Mode™ gives you an opportunity to run a franchise directly from the owner’s box in the all-new Owner Mode. Make key financial decisions off the field, dictate ticket and concession prices, and much more. On the field, make your run for the pennant beginning in a fully featured Spring Training mode featuring a visual player progression system. With all-new unlockable legends and gear, and head-to-head online play, MVP Baseball 2005 is the most fun, polished, innovative, and authentic baseball simulation ever created.
The existing franchise mode is expanded with the inclusion of Owner’s Mode. The new mode gives complete organizational control to the player. The end goal is to accumulate the highest possible net worth over the course of 30 years. Clubs start off with a meager stadium with little fanfare. Players then can build onto that stadium, set ticket and concession prices, run promotional giveaways, and hire/fire staff to build a successful team.
A system implemented to give batters slight hints before each pitch, Hitter’s Eye changes the color of the ball before the ball leaves the pitcher’s hand. Each weapon in a pitcher’s arsenal has a corresponding color assigned to it. The color change will last for only a short time, varying upon a pitcher’s delivery. More deceptive deliveries that hide the ball from the batter’s view will only change color for an extremely short time; other, less deceiving deliveries will give the hitter a longer glimpse of the pitch.
Batting and Pitching mini-games offer players a chance to hone their baseball skills. The Batting mini-game is very similar to a round of batting practice. However, the hitting takes place on a field with ramps, tractors, cars, and hazards. As in the Home Run Showdown mode, players build up points based off the distance of their hits. On top of their distance, extra points can be earned by aiming hits towards indicted parts of the field and, sometimes, hitting ground balls or fly balls. Certain items placed on the field give bonus points when hit, as well. Players progress through ten pitch rounds, each with a point total to attain, until they fall short. Foul balls do not count for any points.
The Pitching mini-game is very similar to the popular puzzle game Bejeweled. The view is that of the catcher’s with the strike zone divided a number of colored rectangles. The number of pitches available to the pitcher decides the number of colors. Points are gained by throwing the correct color pitch at the correct color rectangle. Larger groups of rectangles result in more points. Progression once again comes from hitting predetermined point totals for each round. The timed variety of the mini-game puts players on the clock while the untimed mode gives players a set number of pitches.
Minor League Affiliates
MVP 2005 features the official minor league affiliates of all 30 Major League teams from SIngle-A to Triple-A. Though much of the players on these rosters are made up because of union restrictions, there are many notable top prospects who are conveniently labelled Top 100 Prospects on their player profile. In addition to a full schedule (which is roughly a month shorter than the MLB season), each minor league level has its own playoff system. The shorter minor league season allows players to reward well-performing minor league players with a September call-up similar to MLB’s September call-up, with the only exception being that the 25-man roster isn’t expanded as it is in real life. The September call-up is useful in that it can help add depth to the Major League club for a potential September playoff push and can give a glimpse of a player’s skill at the Major League level. A September call-up who performs exceptionally can often win a playoff roster spot over a player who had been on the Major League roster the entire season, usually due to poor performance down the stretch which the club believes might hurt their chances in going deep into the playoffs.
