MVP Baseball 2003's most distinctive feature is its interface, which is considerably different from the interface used by most other baseball games in that it offers players more direct control.

  DailyGame Review: MVP Baseball 2003 [Xbox] [PS2] [PC]
With MVP Baseball 2003, just about everything from graphics to gameplay has been re-tooled, and the result is one of the top baseball games released this year.
The interface is entirely new in MVP Baseball 2003, with a behind-the-batter perspective that shows not only the strike zone but also each individual batter’s "hot zone." This is a nice inclusion, because you immediately know where to pitch and where not to pitch for certain batters.
MVP Baseball 2003 has a nice (in theory) new feature that allows you to tap the throw button for short tosses and really hold it down for long bombs.

 GameSpy.com - Review
The result of this endeavor is MVP Baseball, and while the 2003 PC version is short on realism and missing a few features, it lays a solid foundation upon which EA Sports can build a topnotch baseball series and get right back into playoff contention.
In real baseball this is a routine play -- a ground ball to the right side means the runner on second advances to third.
In MVP Baseball, the runners are way too slow to try this, and the AI knows it as well because it doesn't even make an attempt.

Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, written by Michael Lewis, is an examination of the present-day Oakland Athletics as run by their general manager Billy Beane, and how the application of sabermetric principles has allowed the A's to be competitive despite having one of the lowest payrolls in baseball.

 The Sports Gaming Network (SGN) - MVP Baseball 2003 (PS2) Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
I make my next statement under the assumption that there is not a baseball sim out there that can fix this problem; but I would love to see a game give the gamer an idea as to the spin of the pitch i.e., what type of pitch is coming to the plate.
I played baseball in college, and in every at-bat I had I could tell from the seams on the ball and the spin what type of pitch was coming.
Again, MVP has brought back a feature long since abandoned in the next-gen baseball games: the ability to watch your runners in real-time around the bases at the top of the screen rather than seeing a colored and meaningless dot trace the diamond.

 MVP Baseball 2003
EA Sports decided to change the name of their long running baseball series from Triple Play Baseball to the newly named and newly released MVP Baseball 2003.
Another problem with MVP Baseball is that even though the game has added and extensive scouting report feature, it really isn’t reflected in each team’s style of play.
However, if you are someone who really knows the game of baseball and wants a high level of strategy in the baseball simulations you play, you probably will want to look elsewhere.

I realize that this will make him possibly the highest-paid set-up man in Baseball History, but they have to put the contract behind them; what's done is done.
I don't think this guy's arm can stand up to being a starter, and I never thought it was the best utilization of his abilities, anyway.
I missed the poll however, if the pitching staff can stay fit all season I believe they have the team to win the division and even go as far as saying they will give the pennant a shake.

Baseball's Hall of Fame recently announced that Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins (who starred together in the classic baseball flick Bull Durham) were being un-invited to the forthcoming induction ceremonies in Cooperstown, NY, because of their high-profile protests against the U.S.-led war against Iraq.
Virginia officials unveiled a scale model and an artist's conception of the proposed baseball stadium in the Rosslyn district of Arlington.
The gist of the Post "expose" is that Virginia baseball advocates are trying to sneak through a stadium deal so as to avoid "NIMBY" opposition, which foiled the attempt by Jack Kent Cooke to build a new stadium for the Redskins in Northern Virginia ten years ago.

 World Series Baseball 2003 Xbox Review
You know you’re in trouble when you find yourself playing a baseball game that thinks the shortstop for the Texas Rangers is called “A Rod Rodriguez.” We can only presume that, in the game world, this redundantly named player is dating an actress/singer named J Lo Lopez.
This is a stats-driven baseball simulation, populated by all the teams and players currently on major league rosters.
“World Series Baseball” features players that don’t look anything like their real-life counterparts; the hair color is often wrong, the faces only vaguely resemble what they’re supposed to look like, and the designers apparently only created a few body models because many players have tiny heads perched on top of big, burly bodies.

 WORTHPLAYING - - All about games !
It is important to quickly note here for future reference that, in baseball, even the very best hitters have a hard time pulling a pitch thrown outside of the strike zone, and conversely, just as hard of a time hitting an inside pitch to the opposite side of the field.
This isn’t specific to only MVP Baseball; it would be nice to see some cool things happen when you win the cup in the NHL series.
While I have been a little harsh with this game, the fact is that MVP Baseball isn’t a bad game, and that’s saying something when you consider it’s a debut game in a new sports franchise.

 MVP Baseball 2003 Review (Xbox)
If you do, in fact, receive a pitch that is in your batter’s hot zone, you best bring it and knock the ball out of the park, because you won’t be getting good pitches very often (depending on the skill level you have the game set on).
The whole premise to this new batting control is that it replicates real baseball in the most important aspect of hitting…timing.
When at the mound, those gamers who have gotten used to the pitching and hitting systems in other Xbox titles such as World Series Baseball 2K3, All-Star Baseball 2004, and High Heat Baseball 2004 will come to notice that the highlight aspect of MVP 2003 is the new total pitch control feature.
