The games within the games — the card games, the simulations, and fantasy — are all highlighted in Episode 8 of Stealing Home.
We start off by talking to some old friends of mine and how they spent a summer trading off responsibilities for making a fictional Cardinals (or maybe Royals) team a World Series Champion in Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball.
Then I talk with Brad Cook, who’s in charge of marketing and PR for Out of the Park Developments. They are the makers of Out of the Park Baseball, possibly the most addicting sports game around.
And writer Carson Cistulli conducts an interview with a fictitious player from his simulation team.
Astros manager Bo Porter, for taking so much on the chin already this season, is the MVP of My Heart.
