Strike or Ball?

SDS

To me, this is a big challenge in the game right now. This pitch https://imgur.com/gallery/t2rl65y needs to be called a strike more often, IMO.

In this game, Justin Dunn had established his control of the zone with 70% first pitch strikes.

Pitches like this called balls, and the countless check swings on similarly borderline pitches which are also not called strikes, to me give too much advantage to the hitter, especially on AS difficulty.

What do you guys think, is this a strike or a ball?

Halfbutt and A Aron, is this the first year you guys are playing the show? Those two pitches you guys had pics of will be called differently depending if you have Umpire Calls set to Personalized. When every game starts I go into Game Log and I see who the home plate umpire is so I have an idea what the calls will be like, every umpire has their own strike zone. See this is why you online people need to play Franchise cause this is the stuff you pick up when you grind 162 games every year. If you don't want calls like this, then go into your settings and change it back to Precise Calls or whatever that setting is called.

I know there’s no point in talking to you, but halfbutt contributes more to this forum than your stupid “casual noobs” schtick ever will. And he does it with the rare disability of being born with just 50% of a [censored].

we all get that you’re a troll and desperate for attention, but don’t call out OGs. It makes you look like even more of an [censored] than you already do.

Dude can you calm your noob [censored] down, I was actually being serious there. At first I thought it was a glitch, that close pitches umps weren't calling but its because I only playing "Play Now" for a week and always getting the same ump but when I started playing with different umps I realized it was them not a glitch...having Personalized Umpire calls is actually that, each have their own Strike Zone.

So on that day do you all walk around with a personality, sense of humor, wit and the general care for animals and the environment?

Yes. But that’s only because I work at Comedy Central’s environmental protection department.
