Strategy Guide

  • Big hitter

    Select the "Create A Player" option. Create a player and enter "keegan paterson", "jacob paterson", or "isaiah paterson" as a case-sensitive name. The player will have a very large bat. He will hit a home run or a hard line drive every time you make contact, no matter what his stats.

  • Huge cap

    Select the "Create A Player" option. Create a player and enter "john prosen" as a case-sensitive name.

  • Bad hitter

    Select the "Create A Player" option. Create a player and enter "erik kiss" as a case-sensitive name. The player will have a skinny bat that will break every time and send a little dribbler to the pitcher for a sure out. Also, you cannot bunt with him; it will just go foul.

  • Move EA Trax window

    To move the EA Trax window around the screen, move the C-stick when the white song introduction window appears.

  • Infinite MVP points

    Reach a desired level of MVP points to spend on a player, stadium, or throwback jersey. Use them to unlock a bonus, then save your roster. Do not save your profile. Instead, reload your profile. Your MVP points will be at their pre-purchase amount. Use them to continue buying as many other bonuses as desired.

    Start a dynasty with a team that can make the playoffs (for example, the Yankees). Simulate all the way to the last series, then save the dynasty. Then, simulate to the playoffs then advance to the playoffs. Save your profile (not dynasty). Exit the dynasty and you should have between 5,000 to 10,000 MVP points. Do the same thing as many times as desired to unlock everything.

    Select dynasty mode and choose the Yankees. Turn off injuries, trades, rain outs, and budget. Set the difficulty on MVP. Simulate to the last game of each month. On that game, choose to simulate it (not quick sim; choose "Play" then "Sim"). Stop the simulation at the top of the ninth inning and choose to manage the remainder of the game. Do this for every month for the rest of the season. When the season ends, and you see "Advance To Playoffs", save the dynasty. Then, choose "Advance To Playoffs". Each time it will show your points earned.(about 13,000 to 17,000). Do not save after this. Exit dynasty mode, then keep re-entering and choosing "Advance To Playoffs". Each time you do this, you will get that same MVP point amount put into your profile.

    Start a franchise then simulate the whole season. Pick a good team for more points (Giants, Yankees, Marlins, etc.). You should get about 7,000 or 8,000 points, and more if you make the playoffs.

    First, start a dynasty and choose any team. Turn off all the trade rules and the budget. Then, go to trade players and trade away all the bad players for the best players for all three of your teams so they will all win. Do not forget to get the good players out of the free agents. Sim all the way to the end of the season. At the end you should have about 13,000 to 15,000 points. Then, continue through the playoffs. If your teams win every series, you should get about 900 more points. Continue to do this as many times as desired, and you should get about the same amount every time.

    Enter a Home Run Showdown or a Pitcher Showdown. Select the opponent that you are supposed to defeat for points, and set their difficulty on MVP. As soon as the game loads, go into "Game Options" and switch the difficulty to any desired setting. As soon as you defeat the player, you will receive 200 MVP points (which is how many you normally get for playing under the MVP difficulty level). This also works for your dynasty as you go game by game.

  • Pitcher stamina and readiness

    When you visit the mound, the pitcher's stamina may go up, depending on his reaction. If he has a positive reaction to the mound visit, the stamina will go up. If he has a negative reaction, it will go down. He can also have no reaction. If you have a pitcher warming up, his readiness will go up.

  • Cheap perfect player

    Create a player with all desired information. Leave his attributes exactly as is. Then, go to "Free Agents". Sign that player to a long cheap contract. Then, go to create/edit again and change the player's attributes to make him perfect.

  • Barry Bonds

    Go to "Edit Player" and select Jon Dowd of the San Francisco Giants. Change his number and name to Barry Bonds #25. His name will be annoucned when he comes to the plate for San Francisco, and all of his statistics are already in the game as "Jon Dowd".

  • Get any player

    To get any player on your team in dynasty mode, create an outfielder with the best stats. Sign him as cheap as you can for one year. You can trade him for any player (for example A-Rod, Mark Prior, etc.)

  • MVP points

    After completing various goals, you will get a message stating that you have earned MVP Points. Enter the "MVP Rewards Checklist" screen in "My MVP" to check how many points you have earned, and how many are needed to unlock the various bonuses. You will earn twice as many MVP Points on the Pro difficulty setting, three times as many on the All-Star difficulty setting, and four times as many on the MVP difficulty setting. Also, MVP points are not awarded when games are simulated. The classic players that are unlocked will begin at age 30 and will age and retire like other players.
