Bunting Cheese

SDS

So I played yesterday RS game, when my opponent scored 6 runs in one inning completly from bunts and base stealing.
I wasn't able to do anything to stop him.

He was even able to steal home base many times, because my catcher was just standing, with ball in his glove and staring at a guy sliding home. And I don't speak about how impposible it is to catch someone stealing 2nd and 3rd base with speed over 90.

What can I do to prevent this? I don't want to lose with players who are just using these glitches, it's so annoying...

I hope SDS can do something in 21 with that. Maybe make bunting and stealing harder?

SDS

Dpad down and select bunt defense. You are good to go now.

SDS

I tried that in my next game, but in some cases bunt defense wasn't an option in shifts. I don't know why.
Also, has someone some tip how to throw someone out stealing?

Ok [censored]. Regarding stealing, try speeding up the primary pitch of your pitcher by pressing L2 (I think) and X at the same time and immediately press the triangle button. Catchers with weak arms can throw out runners using this strategy. I have done this so many with Jimmy Foxx itโ€™s hilarious.๐Ÿ˜‚

SDS

Thank you, I will try that

Yeah use slide step like he said. Also make sure your using meter to throw in the field if you are not and to always go to bunt defense when a fast guy is up.

Ok, I'm using classic buttons in the field, so this is maybe the part of my problem. It's gonna be pain to learn something new, but I will try it

Take Auto Shift off and set it to Manual in your Fielding settings.

Use zone, pure analog, and button accuracy if you actually want to get above all-star

SDS

When you have bunt defense make sure you also bring your 2nd baseman all the way in because most of the time that's where they're going to bunt it and bunt defense does not bring the second baseman in without you manually doing it.

Donโ€™t worry itโ€™s the one thing they actually completely broke in 21 โ€” base stealing. Personally I usually only have about 1 good speed guy on my team that steals bases. But I was getting caught with 98-99 speed with a good jump and a lead on break balls in 21. So itโ€™s very hard to steal. I get why. Ppl abuse it. Unfortunately

SDS

That's good news about stealing buff in 21. I know in real baseball it's a good play, but in The Show it's really annoying thing ๐Ÿ˜€.
I have also some update on teaching with button accuracy fielding... from infield I have no problem, but to have a good throw from outfield, that needs some practice I suppose, cause I did not have one single perfect throw ๐Ÿ™ˆ
