The BIGS (PlayStation3)
Easy skill points
- When you fill up your and your opponent fills up their point bars, wait until your opponent uses Power Blast. Strike the batter out with Big Heat and you will get 100,000 points for a Big Strike Out. You must do this a few times.
- If you have Big Heat when the other team has Power Blast, use the Big Heat. If you strike the batter out with Big Heat, you will get an additional 10,000 skill points (enough for a Power Blast).
A few batters before your rookie is up, try to get
base hits with them. For example, use Carl Crawford, Hank Blaylock,
and Justin Morneau. If you want to do this, load up the bases
if possible. Once they are loaded you should be able to hit a
home run with your rookie without problems. If you do this four
times you will receive unlimited Power Blasts for the rest of
When you can get bat graphics, select the flame bat.
Then, try to get your power ratings to the maximum. Once you have
done that you will automatically hit home runs.
Wii When each batter comes up to bat, hold Nunchuk Up then
hold Wiimote A to hit homeruns easily.
Xbox 360 When at bat, aim the batter in his batting direction and slightly up then press B to hit a homerun. For example, if the batter is right-handed, aim him to the right and up and press B. Usually this will result in a homerun.
Rookie Challenge: Easier Contact/Distance hitting
Note: This excludes All Star weekend. You can get
a better score for hitting in these drills if you place a pitcher
with the fewest pitches in the #1 slot in your pitching rotation.
The fewer the pitches, the more likely you will know what he is
going to throw. This works even better if you have a relief pitcher
who has all fastball types of pitches, (for example. fastball,
2-seam fastball, cutter). If you know what is coming, you should
not have a problem hitting the ball. Make sure the pitchers
you wish to use during the game are not on the "bench"
otherwise you cannot use them during the game. With this exception,
it does not matter what your pitching rotation order is, because
you can select them before the start of the game.
On the Rookie Challenge you have the opportunity of
stealing ten players. Take outfielders first because if somebody
gets a hold of a hanging curve you want speed; glove; and if someone's
in scoring position, a good arm. These are two groups of outfielders
that have all that. These outfielders should improve your win
percentage and increase your number of shutouts and no hitters
for experienced players.
