We all admire him for his play on the field, an honored member of the Baltimore community and he was immortalized forever last year in the National Baseball Hall of Fame; however, Cal Ripken has moved to a new frontier -- the Internet.
Best of all, it costs nothing to do. Like we all know, there's nothing better than something for free and available anywhere online!
Baseball’s all-time “Iron Man” and member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Cal Ripken, Jr. is now the official spokesperson for Real Baseball, a free online video game and community for baseball enthusiasts, fans and gamers around the world.
Cal Ripken’s Real Baseball is the new name of the community/video game which was previously known as Ultimate Baseball Online or UBO.
The new URL is www.PlayRealBaseball.com.
His new game enables gamers to compete in a Massively Multiplayer Online Sport Game (MMOSG), meaning each position on the field is manned by a human player in a 3-D virtual stadium. Players can create their own characters and build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the field against other real human players. Unlike current video games that aim to simulate professional sports, Real Baseball (RB) delivers a first-person perspective of a character, created and developed by the player, interacting online in real-time with teammates and opponents playing from numerous locations.
I joined, and played it a little while taking a break from doing some work down here in Florida. Have fun, and give Cal's new gaming website a spin...
Thanks to the folks at Maroon PR for giving us a heads up about Cal's new project.
