This is the 3rd seasonal release of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball 2017. If you enjoyed 2015 and 2016, you'll love 2017!
The game-play and everything else carries over from the previous versions. There is one major difference from the previous versions: the Homerun Derby. In 2015, the Derby retained the original participants (Nick Noheart, Can O'Corn, etc). In 2016, these were replaced with baseball legends like Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. In 2017, these have been replaced by the participants in last season's MLB Homerun Contest (Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Duvall, Corey Seager, Mark Trumbo, and Todd Frazier).
Also, I did change up a few of my formulas to (hopefully) closer represent their respective players, namely pitcher speed and control.
This is the 2016 edition of the sequel to the SNES's Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball. The rosters are based on the ones that I used for last season's Ken Griffey Presents 2016, which are based on the opening-day rosters from the 2016 season.
For those unfamiliar, Winning Run is a different ball-game from the original. It's more simulation, less arcade. In many areas, it improves on many facets that Presents accomplished.
For starters, it expands on Presents' season stat tracking. Now, not only is your team's stats tracked through the season, but the rest of the league, as well. And to compliment this, there are sortable league leaders screens, as well.
Also, something new to Winning Run is the ability to trade players. So, while this is a 2016 game, you can trade players with other teams and keep your rosters updated for multiple season. Please note, this doesn't rule out future 2017 or further releases.
Oh, did I mention that all THIRTY MLB teams are here? In order to unlock the two expansion Tampa and Arizona teams, you must complete a season (not sure if it HAS to be 162 games or not).
I also updated the All-Star team (something not done in previous Griffey updates) and all eight Homerun Derby rosters (something not done until later releases).
I updated as many fine details as I could get my hands on to make this look as "official release" as possible. I was able to change Florida, California, and Montreal to Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington, respectively. However, I was unable to change the logo of the Washington Nationals. So, while the standings and team-select might read "Washington," there is still an Expos logo hanging around. Nothing game-breaking.
This ROM is a 2017 update to the 1996 SNES release of College Slam, the NCAA version of NBA Jam. In the original game, there were no players - just generic names like "PT GUARD," "CENTER," etc. I have edited all the names to reflect the top five players from all 44 included teams. I've updated the names, player ratings, appearances, and a couple of team names (FSU becomes Florida State, UNC becomes North Carolina).
As an added bonus, when you press UP-DOWN-LEFT-RIGHT-UP-DOWN-LEFT-RIGHT on the title screen, you can unlock 9 extra teams. I've edited these as well. The unlockable teams are the 2010 thru 2016 All-American teams, BaronROMs University, and the East Side Crew (folks I grew up with who traveled between each other's houses, having SNES TSB and NBA Jam parties on the weekends). Enjoy!
The complete list of teams available is:
North Carolina State
All-Americans 2015-16 (unlockable)
All-Americans 2014-15 (unlockable)
All-Americans 2013-14 (unlockable)

It's finally here! This ROM is based on the 2016 Major League Baseball season.
The rosters are mostly based on the opening day rosters with a small sampling of "modder preferences" (i.e. Yu Darvish, Aroldis Chapman, etc).
As a base-ROM, I used a slightly modified version of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball that has the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Angels in the place of the Montreal Expos and Anaheim Angels. Also, while keeping the Florida Marlins logo, in the game I replaced "Florida" with "Miami."
I used JG Games' editor to do most of the editing. However, there were some categories that, for whatever reason, the editor was limited. While the ratings vary from 1 thru 10, for batting power and fielding I was limited to 9. So, I used HxD's hex-editor to give a handful of batters a 10 rating for power, and the last two seasons' Gold Glove award winners (and Aaron Hicks) a 10 for fielding.
Also, I replaced the entire Home Run Derby roster (except for Ken Griffey, Jr.) with historic home-run heroes. So, the likes of Nick Noheart, Sammy Scrap, Can O'Corn, and others have been replaced with Barry Bonds (single season and career HR champ), Hank Aaron (former career HR champ), Babe Ruth (former single season and career HR champ), Roger Maris (former single season HR champ), and Mike Schmidt. Right now, for the sake of annual re-useability,
On this note, I believe I've covered everything. If I've overlooked anything or you notice anything glaringly incorrect, please let me know. Enjoy!
