Batter up! Today Eyes Wide Games launched Watch This Homerun, a one-touch baseball game arriving exclusively on Apple Watch. It’s the device’s first and only major sports title that you can play directly on the Apple Watch.

“Creating those very first games that define the user’s experience is part of the joy of new platforms, and we’re very excited to offer sports fans and gamers on Apple Watch something made just for them for the initial launch,” said Eyes Wide Games CEO Stephen Griffin. “Watch This Homerun captures the most exciting do-or-die moments of our national pastime in a style that fits perfectly on your wrist.”

Watch This Homerun puts players at home plate against the toughest pitchers in the league with the game on the line. Blazing fastballs, hooking curveballs, floating changeups and the dreaded knuckleball test players’ reflexes, but only the perfect tap will send the ball screaming into the seats! Watch This Homerun specializes in short, satisfying bursts of adrenaline that can be enjoyed in just 10-15 seconds, with a progression-based League system that delivers a deeper baseball experience over time. The game’s iPhone companion app tracks competitive leaderboards, achievements and personal stats against friends and the community.

Watch This Homerun is the first in a series of one-touch sports titles Eyes Wide Games is developing specifically for smartwatches. Future releases will focus on soccer, football, basketball and more with the same game-on-the-line design for quick and exhilarating action and engaging season play.

Watch This Homerun is available to download now on Apple Watch through the App Store for $2.99.
