Good Grief! It’s baseball season and Charlie Brown needs five more players for his baseball team! Join Charlie Brown in this sports adventure game designed to teach kids all about baseball, friendship and fun. Play as Charlie Brown and help him recruit and organize his team.

Once you have successfully recruited all the players and completed the mini-games, you are ready to move on to the big game.
