Devastating bat speed, light-tower power, and the cleanup hitter for team Jersey, the one they call "Paste" is a cult figure in baseball gaming circles.

Arguably the greatest New York shortstop to ever play the game, the cyborg Osborne gets an asterisk next to his name due to his use of performance-enhancers--his laser sword.

Bowser - Mario Superstar Basball (2005)

A staple of the modern era, Bowser flashed utter dominance both at the plate and on the mound. It helps when you're large enough to take up the entire batter's box.
