So, I played 6 new baseball titles for SNES and by far, the best ones of this bunch (no Ken Griffey is coming later) was RBI Baseball 2 & 3.  I barely remember the old version for NES and not enough to recall exactly how it played.  This is going to sound weird but these 2 were the only ones who felt original and not just like a copy of what Ken Griffey did as far as batting, pitching, fielding ,the look of the game, the options on the diamond and off, etc.   RBI has kick ass music, intuitive (sometimes frustrating) gameplay and just kept upping the ante with new options as you went through; career mode, sort of, customizeable players and teams, diff. variations on game types, seasons, just so much fun stuff. I played through several games for RBI 2 and have a season going on RBI 3.  I def. recommend those games.  Ken Griffey is still a standout game; for a long time it was in my top 10 of all time but these are equally as fun and 3 at least actually features real players from the MLB, which is another awesome option.
