Today is a momentous day in Power Pros history.

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of MLB Power Pros 2008. It's amazing how this game, this niche baseball video game (which I still contend is the best baseball game ever released for the Wii, second only to Mario Super Sluggers) has survived among us for this long. I remember thinking when I first bought this game that this was a very unique baseball video game with players I knew about decently well already (that, and it was a sequel to a game I really liked in the first place). Who knew that this has became the baseball game of choice for so many of us for so long (and that we would never get another one in the US?)

So, on this glorious day in Power Pros history, I'd love to hear your first memories/impressions of playing this game!

Happy Birthday, Power Pros 08.

i remember my first memory of playing power pros. i got the game (07) for christmas along with my first wii (rest in peace) and my first game i played as the phillies. cpu hit a fly ball to right field, and i could not for the life of me figure out how to control the fielder and i just sat there for like 10 minutes. then i turned the wii off.

anyways this game absolutely rules

My first memory of PP was playing 08 at a friends house after practice or a game, not sure which. It was really fun, so I got a copy too. I played on and off for a while until 2010, and I really didn't play after that. After my copy of MLB 2K12 broke, I started to get back into it. My best memory was when I finished my first success player after playing for so long, not too long after joining the forum.

Happy 10th, MLBPP08.

I rented a copy from Blockbuster in 2008. My brother made a MLB Life player who played for the Nationals named Francisco Mesa. Midway through the year, he got dealt to the Diamondbacks for Chad Qualls.

After that, we purchased the copy I still own today. And I still love it to this day.
