Backyard Baseball '09 review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Backyard Baseball '09 for the PlayStation 2 developed by Humongous Entertainment and published by Atari. Featuring a mixture of real Major League Baseball players and fictional children, Backyard Baseball '09 takes the game where it belongs. Play in schoolyard diamonds, city alleys and more with players like Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz. The gameplay and controls are accessible for players of all ages, and the cartoony graphics and power-ups give the game just the right amount of silliness. This video review features video gameplay footage of Backyard Baseball '09 for the PlayStation 2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
