Hatayama Hatch no Pro Yakyuu News! Jitsumei Han (はた山ハッチのパロ野球ニュース!実名版?, "Palo Baseball News in the Mountains Loom Hatch! Real-name Version")[4] is a cartoon-like game based on Japanese baseball. All of the professional Japanese baseball teams from the Central League and the Pacific League are included. It is possible to play an exhibition mode in addition to a pennant race mode; the game even allows players to use special Barcode Battler cards that were only available in Japan. Children created these special cards by cutting out barcodes from their parents' groceries and scanning them with a special analyzer. Options allowed players to trade players between teams, alter the rules of the game, among other things.

Pennant race mode allows players to assign teams to different leagues; altering which teams belong to either the Central or the Pacific league for the duration of that season. Each ball-player's confidence level is pictured in weather: sunny means the player is in perfect condition while rainy means that the player is likely to perform very poorly.

The original manufacturer's suggested retail price of the game was 9,800 yen (the equivalent to $105.94 in American dollars).
