Grab a glove and pitch your way to the top of the major leagues! Baseball season is back and you’re on the mound. Starting your career as a rookie pitcher, you'll develop your repertoire and navigate clubhouse politics in the big leagues. Over eight seasons, you’ll use your talent and charisma to win on—and off—the field.

"The Fielder’s Choice" is a 115,000-word interactive baseball novel by Nathaniel Edwards. It’s entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Your talented arm will take you places you’ve never seen, and introduce you to some of the most driven athletes on the planet. Do you have the massive dedication to succeed in the big leagues, or will you resort to a little bit of cheating? Will you be baseball’s biggest stat geek or the master of hustle and grit? Will you develop an on-field persona that terrifies hitters or a cuddly exterior that lulls them to sleep? Will you go down in history as a Hall of Fame ace or a live arm that fizzled on the big stage? When your lifelong baseball dreams come true, someone else may have to lose everything they’ve ever worked toward.

Wild Pitch


Baseball is a great theme for a COG/HG title. There’s plenty of drama to mine, both on the field and in a clubhouse. This title takes a novel approach to pitching battles, but it can be a frustrating read, overall. It tracks your character through their entire career, and while this is admirable, it’s stretched so thin that characters are flat, and the journey forgettable. (As it limps to a conclusion, you’re even given a broad list a characters you’ve barely spoken to. Pick one! They suddenly love you!)

The idea for this is solid and inventive. It just doesn’t hit the zone.

Sweet & Short


This was a nice game with a lot of different choices you could make in regards to your career and type of person you are. However, it did get a little repetitive at times with the only goal really to win games. I wish there could have been more time spent improving different areas of my stats without having to sacrifice others. It was a nice game worth the price, but definitely not one of my favorites COG has to offer.

Thank you

gay as hell for baseball

I haven’t finished it yet, but so far am enjoying it a lot. Great writing at a fun, brisk pace. The ability to play as a non-binary character was unexpected and lovely — this is not something one sees often in games. As a non-binary gamer and sports fan, I think that alone warrants my 5-star rating. It helps that the game is fun too! :)
