Welcome to No Crying In Baseball!

In No Crying in Baseball, play as a little league baseball player going to one of his practices. The catch is, your father has finally, finally showed up to practice this time! You're so emotional that you could cry! But, your dad always told you, "There's no crying in baseball, son." Maintain your composure as you play this home-run derby! But beware, it gets harder as you go, and the pitcher doesn't play fair. 



  • Left click to swing. Aim for the marker . Hit the ball  at the right time and score more points!
  • Hold Spacebar to raise the emotion meter. Release it to lower the emotion meter. Keep the meter in the middle!
  • Hit Enter to progress through some screens, like the tutorial and game over screen.

I really love this game! <3. wonderful! :)

Loving it! I had a good laugh.

It's a really great game nice work

this is cute! i feel like the emotion meter should have some sort of auditory response to it, because it took me a decent amount of time to even get past the tutorial. I'm hardly able to aim at any of the balls. RIP.  i love the idea and animations though, fun lil game!

Hi! Yeah, we got some other people saying an auditory response would help. I'll add that in ASAP. Thank you so much! <3

no prob! another minor thing, this definitely feels like an arcade style game, so I think in normal mode there should be a one key shortcut to start another game.

Ok! That's a great idea. That's super easy to add, so I'll put that in, too. Thanks again!
