It is the only first-party MLB-licensed video game for the 2007 season and the only baseball game available for the PlayStation systems aside from Major League Baseball 2K7.

The PlayStation 2 and the PSP versions of this game were released on February 27, 2007 while the PlayStation 3 version was released on May 15, 2007.

- Sometimes the bullpen dialog will lead to an endless loop wherein you are asked to switch out the other team's pitcher.
