Tom Gillen - I am relatively new to the position, and am currently working on Hardball III and a Motocross style game titled Supercross 3D. There are other Sports titles currently in development, but until I get my Producer feet all wet, they will be handled by their original producers, and I might co-produce several of them. 
AEO: Hi Atari-dudes, we're really glad to have you here with us for the evening! Tom, as far as Sega titles, I'm partial to World Series Baseball. Would you say that Hardball III on the Jag will give WSB a run for the money in terms of realism/action?
Tom (Atari): I agree with you about WSB, and yes, if you already like Hardball, it should give it a run for the money. We are incorporating as many enhancements as we can into the game...

Hardball Baseball will provide a graphically and statistically true-to-life simulation of real baseball. Players will have the added option of customizing teams and scheduling themselves for one game, a playoff series or an entire season. Special software builds players' statistics as games are played making Hardball Baseball even more realistic. Atari plans to ship Hardball Baseball before the 1995 All-Star game, if there is one this year.
