GamersInfo has posted an interview with Sean Mackay, Community Manager of Ultimate Baseball Online.
GamersInfo: "Why an MMO version of baseball?"
Sean Mackay: "Originally, we thought baseball would be the easiest of the American Sports games that could be made into an MMO. At first glance it seemed like the slowest of the games. Little did we know we were making the most difficult of the games first. The time elapsed between a batter deciding to swing his bat at a 100 mph fastball is literally a tenth of a second long... the latency in that moment has to be overcome to make the game work."
