Home Run © 1978 Atari, Incorporated.

Play Home Run just as you would play baseball. The left or blue player is the 'visiting team' and is the first to bat. The pitcher-outfielder pitches the ball. Three strikes (either swinging or pitched) are an out; four balls (any pitch not swung at that is NOT over the plate) are a walk and the batter advances to first base.

If the pitcher hits the batter (and the batter does not swing at the pitch, or the pitch does not pass over home plate) the batter will advance to first base.

If the batter hits the ball, the outfielder(s) can catch the ball and make a putout by touching first base ahead of the runner or by tagging the runner. If there are other runners on base, a putout can be made by tagging any runner or, if the runner is in a 'force play', by touching the base in front of that runner. With practice, double plays (two outs on one pitched ball) can be made with ease.

Game Variations:
GAMES 1,2,3, and 4 are single-player against the computer.
