• Don’t swing at every single pitch! Swinging at pitches outside the zone will result in weak contact (or strikes!) and will give your opponent easy outs.


2. Work the Count!

• Work the count! If the opposing pitcher is throwing lots of pitches outside the zone, let them. It will eat into their stamina.


3. Keep Your Eye on the Ball

• Keep your eye on the ball, not the swing reticle. Learn to detect the pitch speed and break by watching the ball right out of the pitcher’s hand.


4. Try Pitching More Towards the Edge of the Strike Zone

5. Shared-Screening Pitching Trickery

• Deceive your opponent in shared-screening pitching. You can move the pitch target during the windup so that your opponent doesn’t know where the pitch is coming.


6. Test Your Opponent’s Aggressiveness

• Learn to control individual baserunner’s. Advance-all/return-all will only get you so far in more complex situations, so practice controlling individual runners even in the simple situations.


8. Use the Cut-Off Man!

• Use the cut-off man! Unless you’re dead set on nailing a runner at a specific base, you should default to throwing to the cut-off man from deep in the outfield.


9. Finish on Fly Balls

• Let your outfielders finish on fly balls. Laying off the left stick when your fielder is close to the catch location will allow your fielder to align themselves for the catch.


10. Time Your Dives Correctly!
