The Baseball Boys is the second level in World 2 in the games Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. This level introduces a variety of new enemies, such as Sluggers and Green Gloves, which are capable of stopping Yoshi's eggs; Blow Hard; Solo Toadies; Little Mousers and Little Skull Mousers. The level also features a new background consisting of blue mountains. This level's playable Yoshi is the pink Yoshi.


Yoshi starts off in a field, with a Message Block, an Egg Block, an Arrow Cloud and some Green Gloves near them. If an egg is thrown at the Arrow Cloud it will transport the egg to an area filled with coins that will get collected. There is also a Slugger nearby, as well as a Winged Cloud which must be hit in order to lower a platform. After this segment, there will be one that has Shy-Guys, Blow Hards and Mildes in it. At the end of the segment the player will need to throw an egg at another Winged Cloud, which cause a Beanstalk to grow. The player will then have to climb the Beanstalk as well as the area it leads to, before dropping down to an area that contains a Super Star, that needs to be used to get past some Spikes, directly after the Spikes is the Middle Ring. After the Middle Ring are several wooden platforms and some Flatbed Ferries that lead to the next area.

Using the Mole Tank

In this area, is a blue watermelon which can be used to freeze a nearby Wild Piranha and some Shy-Guys. After these enemies is a Spring Ball which will propel the player upwards and into an area with several platforms, some of them containing Red Coins and in the bottom one is another Middle Ring. After going past the platforms the player will be in a cave with Little Mousers and various branching paths. The path on the left leads to a Super Blue Watermelon and the path on the right leads to the next area.

The next area is also a small cave area. At the beginning of it is a Winged Cloud that contains a morph bubble that will transform Yoshi into the Mole Tank, which must then be used to dig through some dirt and get some Red Coins. This cave also contains several branching paths. The paths eventually leads to an area underneath the cave that will lead to the Goal Ring.
