Sports Tutorials Designed By The Pros
Avant-Garde has enlisted the help of three famous professional athletes in developing a line of sports tutorials. Joe Theismann's Pro Football offers advice on training and strategy to help develop quarterbacking techniques; improves overall football skills; and helps you understand the finer points of the game. Plays are illustrated through live-action diagrams. Dave Winfield's Batter Up! advises on pitchers, batting stance, swing height, grip and hitting strategy to help you develop expert batting techniques. The package also includes Winfield's book, Batter Up! The Act of Hitting, and a four-player batting game, Slugfest!. Chris Evert-Lloyd Tennis provides animated demonstrations of grip, stroke, game strategy, and specialized exercises. The program helps you learn the rules and choose the best equipment, and teaches concentration techniques to prepare you mentally for a match.
    The Commodore 64 version of each program retails for $34.95. The Apple II version (64K RAM minimum) and IBM-PC/PCjr version (128K RAM minimum) retail for $39.95.
