Ppl who swing at every single pitch

SDS

Get rewarded big time! I played this guy yesterday who swung at EVERY single pitch no matter the location and got hits, fouls and scored runs like a top 50 player. (no swing throughs) The most frustrating gaming experience of all time.

This game needs a patch big time. Everything they said they fixed is worse than it was before they said they fixed it. I now know what everyone is complaining about. I've been playing this game for a long time and it feels like 2018 all over again.

Sorry for the rant but I needed to get this off my chest so I can try to move forward and have fun with this game again!

Your pitching game must be terrible

Context please. Probably events.

Ranked on HOF and above, this strategy never works.

It doesn't take a neuroscientist to throw the ball in the dirt.

Sorry, RS I couldn't tell the difficulty. I was 725 rating at the time.

Well people that swing at every pitch, won't succeed on HOF and above. I haven't played much H2H this year on HOF outside of our private league, but don't get too predictable.

From previous experience, I think like a pitcher. Notice patterns of opponent swing timing and location. Make sure that you are comfortable throwing any pitch to any location on any count, early in the game.

Just like batters hit R2, you can also. You can see where you threw stuff last time to that batter, and make sure to do the opposite for the second AB
By the time you see that hitter a third time, you should be very successful.

More people are aggressive hitters than anything else. It's about speed and getting to their next game. Exploit human nature and alternate locations, time between pitches etc. Not saying to quick pitch or wait until the timer is up every pitch, but hitting is rhythmic. Break up their rhythm.

Lastly, I generally don't throw the same pitch two times in a row. If I do, I switch location unless they are very very late or early.

You can't get a hit if you don't swing...

I was thinking the same thing

SDS

You've got to simply mix up pitch type, speed, and location against free swingers. And try to determine if they are free swinging because they are just hoping to get lucky at pitch type (i.e. directional and/or on a TV with lots of input lag) or just because they have no plate discipline.

If it's the former, it's really easy - throw breaking balls until they come close to timing them up and then work fastballs inside because there's no way of catching up. And don't be afraid of throwing them lots of breaking balls in the dirt until they start to lay off them.

If it's the latter and they just swing at everything with decent timing but no discipline, then you'll have to work a little harder to get their timing/eyes off by working inside and then outside and sometimes mixing it up with back to back pitches in the same location. All about being a pitcher to get the strikeout/weak contact in this situation.

People acting high and mighty about their pitching lol. The problem is you cant throw in the dirt every single pitch. Even when you do throw in the dirt Ive still seen plenty of garbage foul balls, or who knows when the pitch will just randomly stay up so its right beneath the zone and theyll still get a line drive or dribbler single. And you cant literally pitch in the dirt every single pitch. Eventually youll have to throw somewhere around the zone, and opponents like these will keep getting very early/very late foul balls until theres an RNG meatball

What y’all crying about today?

This is exactly what I am talking about. It is very frustrating. People act like it doesn't happen to them. LOL. you described it better than I could.

We cryin' cuz yo momma ain't have breakfast ready on time this morning.

SDS

There are days when I'm not seeing breaking balls well and I swing at most pitches. I definitely DO NOT get rewarded on those days...

SDS

IT REALLY BREAKS MY BALLS WHEN I CANT SEE THE BREAKING BALL

A league where we guys play against each other. 😂
