A pitcher simply can’t take a liner with 109 exit velocity to gut, then react to the ball, pick it up and make a perfect throw to first for the out..... a perfect/perfect liner that when I hit it I just knew I had smoked one up the middle.... but not so fast my friend ... lol
I remember posting about frustrating pitcher wall bs in 2017. Those were the days.

I hit a liner off of a pitcher in an event game today and it injured him out
That’s awesome and exactly what should happen.... I didn’t want to say it but mine happened in a showdown last night .... I still won, but dadgum I had to pause and laugh it off so that it wouldn’t effect my swing decisions the rest of the game ...
That's been an issue in this game since I first started playing in '15 and probably long before. It doesn't seem to happen as often as it used to though, so I think they've at least attempted to fix it. I don't know much about game design, but for such an obvious glitch to be around this long I assume that it's a huge pain in the [censored] to get rid of it entirely..
Every time I blast the pitcher with a rocket off the bat, either the pitcher or the fielder it went towards (who was reacting before the ball hit the pitcher) would be able to field it and throw me out at first.
Every time my pitcher gets blasted by a rocket off the CPU's bat, none of my fielders react, my pitcher doesn't move, and the batter is always safe at first no matter how slow he is!
Last night was truly epic .... I recorded it, just have go figure out how to post it - a liner to the head of the pitcher so hard that it reflected off of him in the air to the 3rd basemen...
Neat thing was that I was batting with Chipper and he was also the 3rd basemen who caught it ...
