Lace Up Your Cleats and Break Out the Pine Tar -- Baseball Season Is Here and Enlight's Latest Sports Simulation Is Stepping Up to the Plate

PARKVILLE, MD - (March 22, 2007) - Enlight Interactive, one of the world's leading developers and publishers of entertainment software for the PC platform, today announced the latest edition of its award-winning baseball simulation series, Baseball Mogul 2008, has been shipped to retail outlets. The acclaimed baseball management simulation game allows players to manage and create a championship dynasty while using players from the past, present, and future. Baseball Mogul 2008 is rated "E" for everyone by the ESRB and will be available on March 20 at retail and via digital download for the suggested price of $29.99.

"This game is a baseball fan's dream come true, and an absolute must have for anyone playing fantasy baseball this year," says Paul Lombardi, chief executive officer of Enlight Interactive. "The new Play-by-Play mode adds an exciting element to the game. Not only will users be able to keep track of game stats and player attributes as the team's general manager, but now they'll have the ability to simulate an entire game, pitch-by-pitch."

"Improvements on last year's version and brand-new features will provide players with an opportunity to see their team's pennant flags raised for years to come," says Clay Dreslough, president of Sports Mogul Inc. "With the start of the season just around the corner, fantasy players and fans of baseball in general will find plenty of ways to live out their big league dreams."

Baseball Mogul 2008 features the best simulation experience yet, with up-to-date lineups, a roster of over 18,000 current and former players, complete financial management control, and the ability to sign, trade, and release players. In this year's edition, players can watch the action on the diamond unfold like never before in Play-by-Play mode. As a general manager, enjoy the game from the luxury box and make the necessary power moves to keep your team in the pennant race. In manager mode, set up the proper defense to contain the opposition or instruct your batters to wait for a hitter's pitch. In Player mode, brush the batter back with a high and tight splitter, or swing at a fastball and aim for the fences.
