What is with the game making your runner take off on a hit to the outfield?

It used to have him go halfway (like he should) then head back to first if the ball was caught.

The game just now made my runner move up to second without me hitting advance or doing anything. He was just standing there on second like an idiot and of course was doubled off.

Sigh. It seems like things that used to work keep getting broken.

I haven't had any of the base running problems people claim to have this year. I can see the problems with hitting and pitching with my own 2 eyes every time I play but it always baffles me that there baserunning issues happen to players. Maybe your L1 button is broke?

With this situation I have found that my buddies that have this issue often times hit L1 and swing at the same time on accident

Funny enough that game was against me. The play (I believe) that you're talking about was the final one of the game. If so, I had a diving catch prompt but made the shoestring catch with Soto in that awkward line-drive animation.

It's likely because there was a slim chance that play was made that your player advanced. I assumed the ball would drop and assumed you had thought the same thing.

Ya every once in a blue moon I have had that happen but it's very rare, for me at least.

Nice game Shaun! That robbed home run with Trout was disgusting!

Yeah, I was playing cautiously on the bases since there were two out, unfortunately Kelenic took off on his own.

Side note, first batter of the game I was trying to walk you to set up Perez, but you swung! I should’ve just given you an IBB.

Edit: there must have been one out because you doubled him off.

In this case, I’d just hit a sinking liner to left center with Mondesi. Runner on first just took off, then stood on second base.

Soto made a great catch and doubled him off.

At no point did I hit L1. I hit R1 to send him back to first but it was far too late.

My only issue is sometimes I’ll hit doubles and buddy will go for the triple without me knowing. I dunno what I do to cause this

You have to watch the runner as he rounds the bases. Sometimes holding L1 for too long when rounding first will toggle you between 2nd and 3rd, just have to make sure you press it once or twice more so it stays on “2nd”

This used to happen to me. I now use the analog to point to the runner and smash the triangle to make sure he stops there.

R2 to manually freeze a selected runner is helpful. Runners still are clueless though breaking in balls in the infield and getting thrown out out running back to the Bay on liners in the gap.

This happened to me in an event game last night. 1st and 3rd with 1 out. Line drive to center and both runners took off like they do when the game seems to know that it's not going to be caught. Then the CF made a shoestring grab and doubled off the runner from 1st. That was a new one for me.

Exactly!
