I am just posting it in the guides section so it is easier to find.
After quite a bit of tweaking by myself, All-Star Baseball 2005 is now back online for PS2!
How is this possible?
The online server for All-Star Baseball 2005 for PS2 remains online, maintained by GameSpy. Somewhere along the line, it seems that GameSpy removed the downloadable roster content for All-Star Baseball 2005 from their servers. This included a downloadable roster update which is required for connecting to the online lobby. What I have done is reproduced these files so that players are seamlessly able to connect to All-Star Baseball 2005 online!
Here are some images of me accessing All-Star Baseball 2005 online:
(Error message received when attempting to access All-Star Baseball 2005's online mode normally; Failed to download roster version.)

In order to play online, just set your Primary DNS Server in your PS2 Network Configuration to :
(BobzEnt.info DNS 2 hosted by Bobz. The DNS server number occasionally changes, so if you are having trouble please check BobzEnt.info and compare DNS 2 to what you have saved on your memory card)
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
If you have this game and would like to schedule a time to play, reply to this thread or post a topic over in the Game Scheduling section.
Be sure to spread the word.
See you on the Ballpark!
Special thanks to FreddY for re-enabling online play for All-Star Baseball 2005.
