Overview

Little League Baseball: Championship Series was part of the SNK Playmore series of Baseball games for the NES. It featured very similar game play to it's predecessor Baseball Stars. The players were modeled after Little League aged kids and the game featured Little League rules (6 innings, 10 run rule, no leading off a base, no stealing until the pitch had crossed the plate, etc.). 16 teams from 3 different continents were featured in the game.

Game Modes

Championship Series

Unlike actual Little League rules, the tournament was a single elimination that featured all 16 teams.
