As 2K Sports readies its 2006 baseball offering with exclusive MLB ownership in hand, Electronic Arts is hitting the field early in the a league it does have development rights for: the NCAA. Shipping to stores today, MVP 06 NCAA Baseball brings to the plate all the school spirit and excitement that college baseball is known for, delivered by the same team that handled the MVP Baseball franchise.

"Playing to earn a National Championship for the University of Texas was one of the greatest moments of my life; Needless to say, I'm still really nostalgic about it and this is a great way for me to re-live it again and again," weeped David Maroul, 2005 College World Series MVP and MVP 06 NCAA Baseball Cover Athlete. "I've been waiting for a game like this to come out for a long time. I just can't believe how realistic the game is."

We've already gushed about the game's core features, such as the Load and Fire Batting system, ESPN presentation and a conglomerate of the top teams and stadiums, but here are some fun facts you might not know (play along with it, won't you?) For one, rich gameplay offerings include a Dynasty Mode (certain to take you on a wild ride on the "Road to Omaha"), a Custom Ballpark feature for your tweaking pleasure, Create-a-Player and the always-expansive online play. Throw in tasty visuals and commentary courtesy of ESPN's Mike Patrick and former Stanford All-American Kyle Peterson, and why, you've got yourself an authentic rendition of America's Pastime! Well, in college form, at least.

MVP 06 NCAA Baseball cracks the ol' retail bat at a $29.99 price point. Of course, that's secret code for, "hey, buy this over MLB 2K6."
