Throw Hard 4 Seam Fastball Correctly
If you have a pitcher or created player that
throws a hard 4 seam fastball, always place the
pitching cursor below where you want the pitch
to go. The pitch will automatically rise after
the pitcher releases it. However, with other
pitches (curveball, slider, changeup, etc.) the
ball will end up where you put the pitching
View Player's Energy In Franchise Mode
When at the main menu in franchise mode, go
to "GM Office", then "Roster Management",
then "Disabled List". Look through your players
to see which ones are tired (except pitchers).
If a starting player is tired, you should bench
and rest him for one game.
Demote Player Without Other Teams Claiming Him Off Waivers
Go to the player editor and make all his stats
to D- so that no teams would want to claim him
off waivers. When you want to promote a player
back to the Major Leagues, change his ratings
back to his default settings.
If you are down in the count or need a quick
ball, pretend to lay down a bunt. Pull back
while the pitcher is in his motion. This should
result in a ball being thrown. Note: This only
works up to two times in an at bat.
Restore Pitcher's Energy
Wait until your pitcher has low energy then
pause game play. If your pitcher is still on the
mound, go to "Save Game and Quit", then save the
game. Restart the system, and when you go to the
main menu, load the game. When you finish
loading, it should automatically take you back
to the game, and it should show your pitcher on
the mound with the full green energy bar.
Change Jerseys In Franchise Mode
Before playing in a franchise mode game, go to
quick play, and on the team's options
highlight "Change Uniform". Go back, exit quick
play, load the franchise, and when you get to
the play game screen on options, your pointer
will be on the blacked out uniform part. Press A
and you can change uniforms. Once you change
lineups or pitchers, this option is no longer
available; it only works for that one game.
Start a two player game and do not have a second player play the game. Throw a
perfect game by striking out every batter. Save the game in the bottom of the 9th
with two stikes and two outs. Finish the game, collect the points, and save
options. Reload the saved game and repeat this as many times as needed to get an
unlimited amount of points.
