"Baseball Game" is out

[App Store Link]

Cost is 3.99 but it will go up to 4.99

A baseball game that allows you play simple and intuitive matches has come to the iPhone and iPod!
All it takes is a light swing of your iPhone or iPod to bat or pitch! Play a game of baseball against AI opponents!
No cumbersome control of fielders is required!

How to play
When batting, the player holds the iPhone or iPod sideways and swings to take a swing with the bat.
When pitching, the player holds the iPhone or iPod vertically and pitches the ball by swinging.
It's as simple as that!

Just like in a real baseball game, the offense and defense switches after three outs and the winner is determined by fighting it out for the designated number of innings.
Without the need for the bothersome control of fielders, you can enjoy the pure aspects of batting and pitching!
The number of innings can be freely configured to between three and nine innings.
When pitching, you can even throw curved balls by angling the iPhone or iPod as you swing!
You can choose from among six types of player uniforms.

Graphics look nice but theres no list of any features in the description and it just seems like you actually swing the idevice to hit and throw to pitch. Seems like a pass but I would like to see some video of it in action and hear some impressions if any one TOFTT.

This looks very nice!!!!!!

My eyes got very big when the screen shot uploaded, then I read the description

Too bad the game play is a conceptual fail.

Why couldn't 9 innings look like this and keep all of its content

Wow even if a video was posted, the title of the game would be so vague that you would have to search through pages before finding a remote video of this game. I mean really, who names their baseball game "Baseball Game"?

W/e, the screenshots look really good. I was also surprised with the graphics and stuff. Thought it would look like another BS09 or even worse than that.
