love the music in this game.
favorite part of the game
Due to the lack of a Major League Baseball Players' Association license, Griffey is the only player in the game to use his actual name. However, one of the fun and largely unknown parts of this game is identifying other MLB players based on the phony and sometimes pun-laden names given to them by developers. For example, the prolific and temperamental Albert Belle is transformed into "Frank Liberty", Frank Thomas who is nicknamed the Big Hurt is named "Big Magoo", left-handed slugger Tino Martinez is called Viper Ramirez, athletically talented and muscular slugger Barry Bonds is named a similarly alliterate "Muscles McFee", Cal Ripken, Jr. is named "Lou Junior", and hard throwing then-Mariners ace Randy Johnson is called "Bolt Lightning" and the twirling Japanese import Hideo Nomo, nicknamed "Tatsumaki" (The Tornado), is aptly changed to "Typhoon Kuroi."
