Kansas City T-Bones virtual ball

MVP Baseball 2005 Posted by Hello

This has to go down as one of the most brilliant marketing ideas that ties in the grand old game of baseball and young kids who are immersed in Xbox gaming!

The first two innings of the July 16th game between the Kansas City T-Bones and the Schaumburg Flyers will be played virtually. Equipped with Microsoft Xbox game controllers instead of baseball gloves and bats, two video gamers will climb into recliner chairs around home plate at CommunityAmerica Ballpark and slug it out on the park's 16 by 24 foot video screen.

Their scores from playing two innings of MVP Baseball 2005 on an Xbox will stand when the T-Bones and Flyers take the field to finish the last seven innings of the game."
