The official opening of the site isn't coming very soon (perfection
takes even more time than originally thought). I promise it will be well
worth the wait. Before sending
me your comments of the current site, please read the FAQ. If you have any additional questions, click the
Feedback link below.
UPDATE! 09/16/2010: rbibaseball.com gets a very minor facelift on the opening page. Its considered a sketch of what is to come.

UPDATE! 09/26/2009: A special evening of RBI Baseball action takes place at a member of the RBI Hall Of Fame's home...
UPDATE! 06/21/2008: In memory of Major League Baseball's "Hall Of Fame" game (R.I.P.), members of the RBI Hall Of Fame are announcing its own annual series of games. At a to be determined time each year, members of RBI's Hall Of Fame will play a series of games to celebrate the history of Major League Baseball's (now retired) Hall Of Fame game.
UPDATE! 11/05/2007: rbibaseball.com quietly celebrated its 10 year anniversary today. Updating of the data for the "ultimate" version of RBI will take place using 2007 data for the few select players that are effected.
UPDATE! 04/26/2007: The creative hiatus is officially over. During the last week, number crunching has resumed on the development of the official "ultimate" revision of RBI. This of course is the Hall Of Fame version spoken of last year. Batter ratings are being completed this week and analyzation for pitchers will follow. The many hours of hard work are expected to be appreciated later on this year. In other news, a title has been given to the profiles being written for the Hall Of Fame members, RBIographies. Finally, it needs to be said that history was repeated last evening. For the first time since May 7, 2000, and possibly only the second time ever, an RBI Hall Of Fame member pitched a perfect game vs. another RBI Hall Of Fame member. A "screen" shot of the final score can be seen here.
UPDATE! 09/06/2006: A lot of preliminary work has been started for the long talked about (and highly anticipated) "official opening" of the site. While no official time frame will be promised, it is certainly a lot closer than at any time in the past. It promises to be a major upgrade to the content here. In addition, the official "Hall Of Fame" version of RBI is being produced. While this version is only expected to be played by RBI Hall Of Fame members, it will receive some coverage here in the future. The amount of data being processed to come up with proper player ratings is impressive. It looks to be an elite version of the game.
