But, as usual with the Odyssey, the gameplay is limited. It's still: player 1 tries to throw ball past player 2, player 2 tries to intercept it and throw back ball past player 1. Another "tennis" variation in fact.

Fortunately, a nice colorful plastic overlay is here to help you think you are actually playing a baseball game. Rules are also quite advanced for an Odyssey game with many subtilities.

Extract from Chronogamer's review: "There are cards you can draw under certain conditions to indicate that an error, wild pitch, or pick-off has occurred. The pick-off is neat because if a batter draws it he can save it until later when he's pitching and use it when he sees fit. A batter can also choose to bunt, or to make a sacrifice fly. You can even have pinch hitters and relief pitchers."

The Fairchild Channel F facts and Fairchild Channel F games. The Channel F electronics were designed by Jerry Lawson using the Fairchild F8 CPU, the first public outing of this processor.

The F8 was very complex compared to the typical integrated circuits of the day, and had more inputs and outputs than other contemporary chips. Because chip packaging was not available with enough pins, the F8 was instead fabricated as a pair of chips that had to be used together to form a complete CPU.
