Sports Talk Baseball is a 1992 baseball game by Sega for the Sega Mega Drive released exclusively in the US. It takes Pro Yakyuu Super League '91 and replaces the music with a running commentary in the style of Joe Montana II Sports Talk Football (done by various Western Technologies employees).
Sports Talk Baseball is licensed by the Major League Baseball Players Association, so it includes real players. It does not, however, have a full Major League Baseball license, so teams are referred to solely by their cities or states.
The game follows the rules of MLB baseball. Unlike real professional baseball, there is a "mercy" rule that ends the game when one team is leading by 10 or more runs. There are three modes:
- Pennant Race: A single-player mode where the player plays a season of 15, 30, 81, or a full 162 games.
- Exhibition Game: A single match against the computer or a five-game series against another player. Up to five players can participate in a round robin tournament format.
- All Pro Game: A single match against the computer or another player, pitting the American League All Pro Team against the National League All Pro Team (similar to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game). Players can substitute players from any team in either league to create a custom team.
Players can choose from any of the 26 teams, with rosters accurate for the 1991 season. Before each game, each team can choose a starting pitcher, order the batting line-up, change each player's position, and substitute players. Players can choose from three venues: the White Sky Dome (standard-sized field in a dome), the Blue Moon Stadium (largest field, nighttime game), or the Red Sun Stadium (smallest field, daytime game). In single-player games, the player can additionally choose whether to bat or field first, to disable auto-fielding (where the computer automatically positions outfielders), and to make changes to the computer player's roster.
