DESCRIPTIONS


Hitters Challenge is based in California and is composed of four (4) basic components;

Hitters Challenge®Video Game and Tutorial (PC format)

 

The Hitters Challenge Video Game has been licensed by Major League Baseball and the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. The video game utilizes the same Hitters Challenge technology except on an electronic field. The Hitters Challenge video game will feature traditional baseball components that attract millions of baseball fans to the stadiums, as well as incentives designed to attract video game players of all ages, male and female. Our developers will utilize state of the art new advertising technology, providing commercials opportunities within the actual game. Our Brand Awareness Statement will distinguish this game from any competition. 

The game allows for multiple player options for competitive selections, up to 15 different opponents or play as a virtual image of any one of the game legends. The game requires only one operator in order to experience the thrill of the in-game hitting battle. There is no fielding, throwing, running or sliding in the game. There is no defensive strategy, strictly hitting based on conventional strategy and physical elements and conditions. This keeps the game moving and speeds up the competition as compared to a nine inning baseball game, requiring control and manipulation of several position images. Players must also consider the field dimensions, the weather, humidity, altitude, velocity and speed of pitches, while factoring in the pitch location, its plane and ball rotation.


Hitters Challenge® Legends Tour

Hitters Challenge® Legends Tour Association (HCLTA) shall function in concert with the Hitters Challenge® Games and to achieve its goals by organizing, promoting and facilitating live "Hitters Challenge®" events featuring the artistry, skill, and experience of retired Major League Baseball players of Hall of Fame caliber, that will showcase the art, elements and strategies of hitting a baseball in an exciting, unique, competitive and rewarding tournament format.  

Hitters Challenge® Legends Tour Association and its partners shall responsibly create opportunities for retired Major League Baseball players to perform live Hitters Challenge® events in selected regions around the country fostering interest in baseball, while teaching, performing and promoting the art of good hitting. As the popularity of baseball continues to grow, fans seek further opportunities to interact with its star players while sharing Internet experiences with each other is a reality of life. It is our goal to grow the Hitter Challenge® Legends Tour Association, expanding the events and opportunities for former Major League Baseball players to as many as one event per week for 24 weeks, while establishing multimedia, sponsorship, and commercial value in such a tour showcasing many of the greats of the game of baseball as a means to promote the Hitters Challenge baseball hitting technology. In doing so, people of all ages, backgrounds, economic and educational levels can become a part of the greatest sports innovation to originate in the 21st century.

The Champions are awarded winnings of up to $100,000 per event. The initial live event is tentatively planned to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fox Sports may be filming the two-day event and telecast 8 one-hour TV episodes through its Regional Affiliates. The Hitters Challenge Legends Tour will emulate, by example, the (PGA) Seniors Golf Tour, securing the top MLB retired players, of Hall of Fame caliber, for an exciting showcase of hitting; an exhibition of the artistry and skill of hitting as well as to illustrate the elements and strategies of hitting a baseball in an exciting and competitive tournament format.  


Hitters Challenge® Internet League

The Hitters Challenge Internet League (HCIL) is a tournament format, on-line competition featuring players at professional and amateur levels of skill. The HCIL is the first ever on-line sport. Members of the HCIL will start out as amateurs. As amateur members they will have the opportunity to compete against virtual reproductions of some of Major League Baseballs all time great hitters and/or other amateur members like themselves. When an amateur member reaches level five and can maintain a scoring potential of 75% efficiency at level five over five consecutive tournament events, that member will qualify and have the right to turn professional.  

An HCIL qualified professional that chooses to turn professional will from the time they choose to turn professional be automatically entered into their regional bi-weekly tournaments at no charge except the monthly membership fee. HCIL professionals will compete in these bi weekly tournaments for a cash first prize of up to $100,000 U.S. dollars. The top HCIL professionals will be invited to the National Championship to compete for a first prize of 1 to ten million dollars. The amount of the grand prize will be determined by number of HCIL membership and corporate sponsorship.
