Mario Stadium is a stadium in Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers. As its name implies, it is Mario's stadium, and it is the most simplistic of all the stadiums in the game. It seems to be always set near beaches. It resembles to other Real World Baseball Stadium, and there are no real features to distract players. It is a great stage for beginners or those who want a more realistic game. It features the largest seating capacity of all the stadiums in both games. Both Mario Stadiums bear a resemblance to each other.

History[edit]

Mario Superstar Baseball[edit]

Mario Stadium's first appearance is in Mario Superstar Baseball. The field is set on the beach with a small amount of sand behind the outfield wall. Palm trees and houses are also behind this wall. The stands are constructed like traditional stadium stands and hold around 300+ people. It is hinted that this stadium is near Isle Delfino. In Challenge Mode, Mario and his team are always challenged in Mario Stadium.

Itadaki Street DS[edit]

The Mario Stadium appears in Itadaki Street DS. It is one of the seven Mario stages in the game. It takes place in a baseball stadium. It wasn't changed from Mario Superstar Baseball.

Mario Super Sluggers[edit]

Mario Stadium makes a return in Mario Super Sluggers. This time the field is more realistic and set right on the water's edge. The scoreboard now features flags styled after Super Mario Bros., a Nintendo logo on top, as well as lights behind it for nighttime games. In the background a lighthouse on a cliff can be seen as well as a boat in the water. The stands are modeled after a beach house on one side and traditional stands on the other. The stadium now seats roughly twice as many characters as in Superstar Baseball.

The minigame is Bob-omb Derby, with a few differences from the earlier game.

Fortune Street[edit]

The stadium also appeared in Fortune Street with the design from Mario Super Sluggers but with the music from Mario Superstar Baseball.

Collectible card info[edit]

  • Information: Mario Stadium is a classic ballyard, with no artificial turf and no unexpected obstacles. There is a giant dirt "M" in the outfield, but that won't get in anyone's way. Maybe that's why all training sessions are held here.
  • Field Obstacle: None
  • Fun Fact: Power hitters dream of one day hitting a home run far enough to bounce it off the lighthouse overlooking the bay.

Trivia[edit]

  • Mario Stadium is one of only two stadiums in Mario Superstar Baseball that have spectators watching in the stands. Others, like DK Jungle, appear to have areas designed to seat fans (behind home plate), but there are never any shown. Wario Palace has fans in the introduction, but none during actual gameplay.
