Stuart Fleischer, a veteran game developer of over 20 years, is a key player in the current wave of "indie" games. With credits on over 143 releases, including World of Warcraft, Civilization, and Deep Thought, Stuart has more than probably put more hours into games than anyone you know! But to Stuart, game making is more than just a job: it's a calling.


"Green got all of it, hitting it to straightaway center field, where he thought he had a home run. But thanks to the big wall at Chase Field, it landed just below the home run line and he had to stop at second. 'I thought it was gone,' Green said. 'I didn't know it was a 15-foot-high wall. I thought it was a normal wall. I even heard from people in the stands when I got to second base, telling me to hit the weight room. The shortstop [Jurickson Profar] was cracking up behind me. It's all fun and games. That wall's huge. They need to lower that thing, make me feel good about myself.'" - Mayo, Jonathan A's Green wins XM Futures Game MVP Award. 10 July 2011.

The game is played by the same rules listed in the Official Baseball Rules published by Major League Baseball. Exceptions are game duration and the handling of tie games. From 2008 through 2018, games lasted 9 innings. From 1999 to 2007 and since 2019, games last seven innings. Through 2018, up to two extra innings were available to settle a tie after playing all regulation innings. In 2019 and since 2021, one extra inning may be played, with each half-inning starting with a runner at second base, the last player put out. The home team wins if they take the lead in the 7th or 8th inning; the visitors win if they hang on in either inning; the game is over if it is tied after eight. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
