Hold [Shift] while clicking on the player's
card in the card book and they will tell you a secret fact.
When you are batting, put the bat where the ball is,
then hold the Left Mouse Button. If done correctly the CPU will
swing for you.
In any mode except spectator, play in Cement Gardens.
Hit a grounder into the left field alley. If it goes out of view,
it will be counted as a homerun.
When playing in the BBL championship games, get a
good pitcher (Pablo Sanchez) and pitch a slow ball, or left or
right hook in the bottom corner nearest to the batter. This will
prevent the batter from hitting a homerun (most of the time).
Good days and bad days
At the beginning of the baseball game when you are
organizing your roster, place the pointer on the player's faces
and their stats will appear. When you are looking at the stats,
sometimes it will show baseballs that have plus signs and minus
signs on them. Minus signs take away stats for that game. If the
baseballs have plus signs for that game they add stats. On the
score board players have different color backgrounds. When players
have green backgrounds, they are going to have an average day.
When the background is blue that player is going to have a bad
day. An orange background means that player is going to have a good day.
Mr. Clanky's message
Mr. Clanky's card has ASCII text next to it. It translates
to: Mr. Clanky says "Stay in school."
