This is for the SNES version of the game. For other ports of the game, see Roger Clemens' MVP Baseball.

Roger Clemens' MVP Baseball is one of many baseball simulators for the SNES. The player has the option between Exhibition, Regular, and World Championship modes for one-player, as well as a two-player option. The game does not have the license to the MLB, so the team and player names are made up, with the exception of Roger Clemens, who is a playable character in the game. The player can select either the National or American and East and West divisions.

The game was developed by Sculptured Software and published by LJN in North America and published by Acclaim Japan in Japan. Interestingly, even though the Japanese title on the packaging is MVP Baseball, the Japanese version's title screen retains its original title, Roger Clemens' MVP Baseball.

The player can save their progress via a password system.

Roger Clemens' MVP Baseball has a small amount of music. The music was written by Sculptured Software's main in-house composers H. Kingsley Thurber and Mark Ganus. None of the music is particularly memorable, but not bad. The problem is that for 1992, and on the Super Nintendo, there should have been more music, as there is only one in-game tune, so it can get annoying after playing the game for a long period of time.

Interestingly, regarding the song Playing a Game, if you let the song play 8 times, at about the 4:35 mark, the song will loop from the beginning, rather than looping from the loop point.

The SPC rip also contains two unused tracks. One is a song and the other is a jingle. It is unknown what their intended use is, and the composers should be contacted and asked what the songs' intended use was.

Thurber and Ganus wrote their music in BMus, Sculptured Software's sound engine, using the Berlioz music routines, which was programmed by Sculptured Software developers David Ross and Bill Williams.

The game's soundtrack was ported to the Genesis version.
