The Seattle Mariners announced their lineup for a game yesterday using the respectable pixelated mode of Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball for the Super Nintendo yesterday, and it was actually really cool.

In 1992, Nintendo’s then-president Hiroshi Yamauchi went out and bought a majority stake in the Seattle Mariners baseball team. It was one of the most 90s things Nintendo ever did, but today, that era comes to an end.

Erick Figueroa, who is playing for the Caribbean's Little League World Series team, is 6'4", 229. The scouting report says he's a pitcher with "intimidating mound presence."

The score was 4 to 3, two outs in the ninth, when I woke up on the couch. No one was on base. "I don't need to see this," I said. "Nah, stick around," Dad said.
