Game description: MVP Baseball 2005 offers more features that let you take control of your favorite major league baseball team both on and off the field. The game highlights its new Hitter's Eye controls, which give you more control of your swing, movement in the batter's box, and the ability to read the pitch. In addition to enhanced offensive tools, this year's installment in the MVP Baseball series includes an improved dynasty mode, a spring training mode, and an all-new owner mode. Play through a challenging single-player season to unlock legendary players and new gear, or challenge your friend to an online game.

Runs at a consistent 60fps in 1.6.0. This game seems to be one of the games that doesn't play well with the usually-harmless MTVU hack. I first ran with MTVU enabled (OpenGL & default settings). The game loaded & menu navigation was fine, but it would freeze & crash PCSX2 consistently when trying to enter an on-field game mode. The solution was simply to disable MTVU. The game now runs smoothly with no apparent issues, on near out-of-the-box settings (other than the OpenGL renderer, 4x Native internal res, & allowing 8-bit textures, I believe all of my settings are at 1.6.0's fresh-install defaults).
