…It’s Website Wednesday: Baseball Boss?

Baseball Boss

Baseball Boss is like a Fantasy Baseballer’s dream come true.

Designed to be the ultimate interactive baseball game, users can create teams using real major league players from 1907 or 2007, and then test and tweak those teams until they’re the best that they can be.

Once a team has been assembled, players can then challenge other players in real games, and using a combination of chance and statistics, a computer determines the winner.

New features are constantly being added, and it’s made by Challenge Games, who also developed Duels, so you know it’s going to have some great support behind it.

Are you ready to step up to the plate?

Here’s a neat Mac trick: Open your Activity Monitor (it’s located in the utilities folder), right click on the dock icon (or ctrl click for you Mac purists), and select one of the available dock icons. The new icon can show you a variety of things in real time, including:

  • CPU Usage
  • CPU History
  • Network Usage
  • Disc Activity
  • Memory Usage
