New York media event focuses on the Virtual
by Kit

Tuesday, October 19 2004

Virtual reality baseball to be presented at event.

Another media event will be taking place in New York dealing with virtual reality sports games. The information for the even follows below.

WHAT: Darrell Evans and Netamin will give ongoing demonstrations of Ultimate Baseball Online, a "baseball virtual reality experience" at an open house. UBO is the first massive, multi-player, real-time sports game. It lets people from around the world play the sport of baseball on a virtual field on their PC. Everyone sees the game from their player's perspective, and your teammates and opponents are all real people.

Darrell saw this project's potential early on: something that could allow people of all ages, nationalities and genders to experience the joys of the game, without the usual limitations that come with any team sport.

The latest version of Ultimate Baseball Online, along with press accounts, and screenshots of the game will be distributed to media attending this open house.

A Ballpark Lunch buffet will be served from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM.

WHEN: Thursday, October 21, 2004 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM

WHERE: The New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Avenue (at 34th St.) New York
Open House Event held in the Sky Lounge, 39th Floor

WHO: Called "the most underrated player in baseball history" by Bill James, Darrell Evans played 1st and 3rd base from 1969 to 1989 for the Atlanta Braves, the San Francisco Giants, and the Detroit Tigers and played in two league championship series, one World Series (1984), and two All-Star games (1973, 1983). Recently, Darrell has been serving as a goodwill ambassador of baseball, traveling to numerous baseball camps in the US and Canada, promoting the sport to youth, amateur players and general baseball enthusiasts.
