99 Jackie Robinson?

SDS

I am half-way through getting Jackie 99. Forgot how much I like his batting stance after doing moments and playing with his card.

For those who have his 99, are you glad that you got it? Looks like phenomenal card. And has 1B, 3B, LF to go with 2B.

Let me know your thoughts on the card, what position you play him at and where he’s at in your order!

Dudes a beast, batting over .400 with him and hits for more power than the card shows.. also the packs, stubs and exp are worth it too

I did not like the immortal Robinson from a couple years ago but this one is nice. I actually have him 9th behind the pitcher but that's because I can't justify having him leadoff with all of these easily available hitters with great contact and power, and his singles and speed would be wasted hitting 7th ahead of Posey and a pitcher.

He has great contact and solid power offensively so especially at 2B he comes in handy. Even if you don't want to drag bunt he's a useful hitter but you can usually get at least one free shot at bunting for a hit per game before your opponent goes to the bunt defense so that can be effective if you choose to use it

Any tips for getting through these moments? I'm stuck on stage 2. I cant hit a HR, the wall feels like it's a mile long. Perfect-Perfect on a hanging slider down the middle with a power swing and it was caught at the track. Not getting any doubles or triples with him in conquest either.

Its becoming a huge time sink.

At Forbes? Just hit that gap and run. Also be patient because they don't pull the pitcher. Dude will be at 250 pitches by the 9th. I've gotten it over the wall and in the park.

Yeah Forbes. I gave up after crushing that slider to the track. I'll try for an inside the park next time.

I knock it into left center and hit and inside the park HR at Forbes. For tallying doubles and triples in conquest, bat him lead off to get him the most AB’s possible. Only swing at High fast balls and power swing that bad boy. You’ll get it!

I even played the games at rookie just to get it done with quickly. I finished the doubles and triples with 27 innings played of the 42 required.

The 2 HR mission is actually pretty easy if you just switch to directional and hold the stick up and to the left.

SDS

Everybody I play crushes with him. I do not, however.

SDS

How long would it take someone on average to finish these moments if they were trying to complete them in one night? I do not enjoy playing against the computer a single bit

SDS

Wow, I finally got it. After Perfect-Perfect'ing so many pitches with □ I finally went over the wall on a change up down the middle. I didn't think it was possible.

SDS

I play him at 2b and bat him leadoff. He's one of my best cards.

SDS

Very good card, as for the homerun you can always try direction hitting. The steal XBH was annoying, not even sure I ever did get it.
