I'll probably put a encode here.

Maybe some comments as well.


Maybe not.

April Fools! ;P

slamo: This was submitted at a very serendipitous time. At the original time of submission, team sports games weren't allowed in the Vault, and since this isn't quite entertaining enough to get to Moons, it would have been rejected on those grounds. Thanks to a completely unrelated submission, the Vault rules were recently adjusted to allow any sports game that has a game mode that could have a non-trivial speedrun. Since this game doesn't run on a fixed timer, and the RNG presents a real optimization challenge, this game is actually Vault eligible now.

However, there is another reason to reject this run. As was pointed out in the thread, the bottom of the 9th inning could have been skipped if you had played as the home team, which is a serious optimization flaw. Rejecting.
