Online Baseball Tournament Launches

Netamin aims to create a virtual sports league and community through its contest, which will let sports fans and gamers play a virtual version of baseball in real time on any PC with a broadband connection.

Netamin Communication Corp. will hold a series of pay-to-play online sports tournaments where teams compete for cash and prizes, the Diamond Bar, Calif., company said Monday.

The first Tournaments PRO event called Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 will begin next month. Qualifying rounds for the tournament will take place between June 5 and 11. Each player on the winning team receives a Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP). The entrance fee is $5, and every entrant will receive an Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 t-shirt.

Invitations to play in the PSP Invitational will go out to each winning team shortly after the qualifying rounds end. Playoffs are scheduled June 13-16. Players can download the game for free.

Netamin aims to create a virtual sports league and community. Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 will let sports fans and gamers play a virtual version of baseball in a real-time on any PC with a broadband connection. The game allows players to choose teams and build virtual players. Teams are about 5 members, divided into skill levels. Gamers view the field from a first-person perspective.

As characters play they gain experience. Points are issued to characters throughout the game. When team-players "levels up" they can use the point to buy capabilities, such as better running speed, throwing power or batting power.
