Go back to hitting classic. Its one of the options look around youll see it. Its all about good timing if your too late its gonna go foul, too early pop fly and such. Hope that helps

I think the EA Baseball game MLB "The Show" actually got a lot better ratings than the 2k Baseball.

I only mention this becuase I was suprised EA put out a quality sports title.

thats because mlb "the show" is made by sony. i think after ea struck the deal with the nfl, 2k went after mlb. i know they struck some kind of deal, but i don't know the details because sony is allowed to use the mlb and ea is not. that is why ea's baseball game the following year was with college baseball. i think this happened a couple of years ago.

its a shame. ea gets nfl and the better game (nfl 2k) doesn't reach the consumers. 2k gets a baseball deal and the better game (mvp baseball... was actually good and i still like to play mvp 05) doesn't reach the consumers.

The deal was the only 3rd party MLB game could be from 2ksports. However, the show is made by Sony, a 1st party developer, so they are allowed to make their game.

And for the record, MLB The Show is a million times better.

never use power swing unless with a huge power hitter and start you swing when the pitcher stepes forward.
