I played one year of a baseball as a kid, and for a brief - very brief - period in my life, I imagined what it would be like to play on a Major League Baseball team. Yet I was never much of a serious fan, and I lacked the skills to even maintain the fantasy for a significant period of time. Thanks to Franchise MVP, the latest game MLB.com has pitched into the Play Store, no one will again have to expend much effort picturing themselves as the most valuable player on an MLB team.

Franchise MVP contains over 120 teams from Class A, Double-A, Triple-A, and Major Leagues. Players get to play on any position on the field, building up their skills and acquiring the best gear needed to boost them to the top. It's very hands-on, with players getting to take control of the action by swiping and tapping within several provided batting, pitching, and fielding mini-games.
