The PDP-10 Timesharing World Series is one of the first games ever wrote with BASIC programming language. The game allows the user to simulate a game of baseball on the computer. The player’s input is limited to picking a random number between 1 and 1000 after which the game is played out. The two teams (Dodgers and Yankees) will bat it out. Based purely on chance the baseball players will hit singles, doubles or home runs, steal a base, be safe or out. Each event is printed to the screen and at the end a winner is announced.
