Our family with the fantastic Beth Feldman
A couple of weeks ago, the family and I were invited to a really fun event at the Atari Headquarters for the launch of Backyard Sports Sandlot Sluggers. They had decorated the office like a baseball game, complete with hot dog and popcorn stands, pinatas, and plenty of areas where the game could be tested on various systems. We have a Wii, so my husband was really happy to take the 2 hours out of his busy schedule with dental school to play some baseball.
It looks a great game, really colorful and easy to play. Geared for the 6-12 age group. Or my husband. ;) Bubba's eyes were as wide as saucers watching daddy play this fancy video game. I'm sure we would have a mini gamer on our hands if we let him.
I for one, happen to know absolutely nothing about video games, so here is a little blurb on the game itself: Backyard Sports™ is back with the all new Sandlot Sluggers™, an action-packed, arcade-style baseball game featuring super charged Power-Ups, new interactive fields, mini-games and more that will keep you on your feet with non-stop fun and excitement. Available in Nintendo DS, Wii, XBOX 360 and XBOX LIVE

It was so much fun to be in that atmosphere- I miss baseball games SO much! Some more pictures from the event:
