  • 16:9 anamorphic view

    Hold L2 + R2 over three seconds, then press Left to change the view to widescreen anamorphic format. Press Right to return to normal.

  • Easy strikeouts

    Once you get two strikes on a batter, always throw a low inside curveball or slider. You will almost always get a strikeout. Additionally, get two strikes on a batter. This is easiest done with a curveball. Then, throw a cutter high and away (outside the zone). The batter will swing and miss for strike three. This only works with right-handed pitchers against right-handed batters. If the batter does not swing, use a low and inside curveball to finish him off.

  • Easy homeruns

    When controlling a right handed batter, point the Left Analog-stick to opposite field (right field). Swing for an increased chance of getting a homerun over the right field fence.

  • Easy homeruns at Fenway

    If you have a big hitter such as Manny or Vlad, hold the Left Analog-stick diagonally towards the Green Monster. This will make almost every inside pitch or icon in the hot spot go over the wall for a homerun.

  • Perfect game

    Use Barry Zito or create a player that has a good slider and curveball. Throw the slider two times to the opposite side that the pitcher throws. For example, Zito is left-handed, so throw it to the right side (inside of a left-handed batter). This will cause the batter to think it is either to the inside or to the outside. The pitch must be at the edge of the strike zone. After that, throw a curveball in the upper inside or outside corner. He should strike out, pop out, or ground out.

  • Trades

    In season mode, the CPU will accept all your trades (at least in rookie mode). You can trade players that you do not use a lot for other players on other teams that are very good. For example it is possible to trade Marcus Thames to the Diamondbacks for Randy Johnson.
