Color Baseball is a one or two player baseball game written by Dale Lear. This was actually one of the better baseball games available for home computer (or video game) systems at the time, and even features a nice multi-part harmony rendition of "Take me out to the Ballgame" when you start the game up. It has nice little touches, like a cheering crowd (and fancy writing on the scoreboard) when you hit a home run, and also allows you to bunt, switch between left and right handed, and other features.
Dale Lear, the author, was one of the programmers that Tandy sold quite a few games for. There is a nice interview with him on Nickolas Marentes website, and it is also part of his interview book, Coconuts, also available through his website (or Jim Davis in North America).
