Hint: Owner mode: Getting money: If fans are not attending your games, you will have
difficulty making money. Make sure the Fan Happiness meter is
high and you schedule Promotional Days occasionally to keep people
coming out to the ballpark. kd 74.
Use the following tricks to earn money in owner mode. Note: Save
the game early and often. Also be patient, as this may take awhile:
Select a team that is championship caliber. You will make more
money by hosting big games. For example, good teams like Chicago,
Boston, New York, or St. Louis. You will make somewhere about
$500,000 for each playoff game.
Turn off injuries, suspensions, and computer trades. This makes
simulating a whole season much faster.
Use the money that is initially in your bank to purchase merchandise
stands and concessions. The more revenue you stream in, the more
chance you have to gain money in the future. Spend all your starting
money (remember promotion days) quickly, as you will go into the
Never let your team have a losing year. That is the easiest way
to get into a huge hole. In fact, make sure you go deep into the
playoffs in the first few years.
Keep your ticket prices at default for the unimportant games early
in the season; perhaps even lower them a bit early in the season
to get people through the door. In crucial September games and
the playoffs, raise them to a reasonably high level. Fan satisfaction
is higher then, and they are willing to pay more.
After the postseason, spend all the money that you have earned
on ballpark upgrades (mostly seating capacity). The more seats,
the more money you will earn.
Turn off fair trades. Check your rosters after the first few seasons
to get rid of old overpriced players for cheap youngsters. You
can even edit young 20 to 22 year olds in rosters.
When you start owner mode, turn off "Injuries" and "Suspensions"
so that your starting lineup will not be disturbed throughout
the season. Set the budget to "Large". Start a season
with a team with a small payroll (for example, the Minnesota Twins),
or you could spend more time trading away all the big salaries
(for example, the New York Yankees). Before you start the season,
lower your ticket prices slightly. Your attendance will average
slightly over 10,000 at first. Also, buy the first "Seating
Capacity" upgrade so that your capacity is 25,000. Use the
$1 million you have remaining and buy some concessions. Trade
away your high priced players (anyone making over $1 million)
and either sign lower paid players or call up players from your
farm teams. Then, edit your roster so that you are the greatest
team in the league (first in pitching, batting, defense, and speed).
The players' salaries will stay low, but you will be the best
team in the league. Raise your ticket prices after the first few
months then raise them more during the summer months, and slightly
more during the playoffs. You should win the World Series if you
edited your players well enough. Take the money you made and upgrade
your seating capacity. Repeat this process after the year. Let
go of the players asking for more money, and just call up more
bad players and edit them to great players. Only concentrate on
seating capacity at first. You will make enough with ticket sales
to be able to afford everything else in the later years. After
a few years you should have the best ballpark in the league. Note:
This trick is not for those that are attached to certain players
-- you must be willing to part ways with your big names. Jerry Baker.
If you want a team with a good stock of cash, then follow these
steps. Start Owner mode with large budget, no suspensions, injuries,
CPU trades, and financial advisor. Then start a fantasy draft
for both players and coaches. Make sure that yoru team is first
for both. Choose B. Cox, then simulate the coach draft. When you
get to the player draft, chose who you want (not Dowd, Pujols,
Thome, Abreu, or any other high-priced player). Select in this
order: Huff (1B), Mueller (3B), Soriano (2B), any shortstop, Baldelli
(CF), Holliday (LF), select the first four pitchers in SP and
two RP, then simulate. When done, go into "Owners Box"
and choose "Buy Assets". Enter "Seating Capacity"
and go to level 2. Spend your money on a pizza stand, prospect
store, and your last $100,000 on promotional days for your first,
last, and rivalry games. Edit your players so that all of your
player stats on main menu (pitching, fielding, hitting, speed)
are at #1. For pitching, raise the stamina. For batting, raise
contact and power. For fielding. raise fielding to 99 on all starters.
For speed, set to at least 79. Simulate your season. You should
finish with about 95 to 105 wins and $5 to 10 million in your
bank. Darren C. Sutton.
Before entering owner mode, go to "Roster Management"
and do the following. Send all of your high priced players to
A ball. They will keep their contract years, but get paid $100,000
per year. For example, if you are the New York Mets, send Carlos
Beltran to A ball. Instead of making $17.5 million over seven
years he will make $100,000 over seven years. This will work with
any player. This is an easy way to cut down price per day of player
salaries and still get high media sponsorship. matthew witas.
Have a good team in owner mode like the St. Louis Cardinals, New
York Yankees, or Boston Red Sox. Trade away anyone making over
$1 million on all 4 rosters (A, AA, AAA, and MLB). Then, sign
the worst players in all the free agent categories. Go to edit
players, and give them the exact stats of the best position players
in the MLB. By doing this you are getting players for $300,000
for three years, and with the value of $10 million dollar players.
To get upgrades at the very start, buy the first upgrade of seats
and buy either the ice cream stand or the pizza stand. Leave the
prices of admission alone. Having more people in the park will
not bring in more money. Joey McKay.
Hint: Owner Mode: Promotional days: The best time to schedule promotional days in Owner
mode are the first game of the season, the first game of each
series, every game for rivalry series, and the final game of the
Hint: Owner mode: Players that improve:
If you acquired Matt Williamson, Steve Brassard, Craig
Simontacci, and Wes Krukow, when playing in Owner Mode, year by
year, they will always improve slightly. andyjmac1.
Hint: Renamed players: Every non-created player that has the number 86 is
a player in real life. For example, the Red Sox's first baseman
Anthony Friese #86 is actually Kevin Millar #15.
Hint: Pitching: If a good prospect is doing poorly in the minors, try
hiring a new pitching coach or batting coach to put some spark
back into their game. kd 74.
When you are about to throw the ball, hold the button down until
you get to the red. Let go, then hit the green. Your pitches will
be faster. ThaChozinWon.
To get the maximum velocity of a pitch of your choice, hold down
the button for that pitch while the speed meter is on. This should
make your pitch be at its maximum velocity. andyjmac1.
Hint: Hit the batter: To hit the batter with the ball, hold L1 + R1
and press Left Analog-stick Down. The batter will be hit
with the pitch and the umpire will warn you. Do the same for the
next batter and the umpire will eject the pitcher from the game.
If you hit the next batter with the new pitcher, he will immediately
be ejected from the game. If you wait for one specific batter
out of all nine batters, the pitcher will not be thrown out immediately,
and there is a good chance that the single batter will charge
the mound. Note: This will not work if you only have one pitcher
remaining on your team. It may also bring down your pitcher's
stats in Owner mode and Dynasty mode. It is recommended that you
try this with an opposing team or in Exhibition mode. Valo Rama.
Hint: Easy Homerun Showdown win: When the pitch is coming in, hold Left Analog-stick
Up and time it well. You will almost always hit a homerun.
Hold L1 and move the ball father away from the plate before
the pitch is throw. Then, hold the Left Analog-stick in
any direction. This will allow players to hit inside pitches.
Hint: Easy grand slam: Trade all fast players like O. Cabrera, Ichiro, and
Carlos Beltran to one team. Create the the jacob paterson
player and sign him. Then, put the fast players as the first three
hitters and the slugger as the number four batter. Have the first
three players bunt. While this happens, take control of the other
team so they cannot throw the ball. All of the fast players will
be on base and the slugger will be up. Most of the time he will
hit a grand slam. Colleen DeRochey.
Hint: Easy homeruns: Create a team with a lot of power hitters (like Albert
Pujols). To hit a lot of homeruns with them, press Analog stick
In Owner or Dynasty mode, sign a player with at least 67 Power
and 67 Contact vs. RHP or LHP. Make sure his hitting zone is hot
in the upper inside corner. Wait for a pitch high and inside and
make sure you point the Analog-stick up and inside. Then,
swing slightly earlier than usual. If you timed correctly, the
player will hit a homerun about 98% of the time. If not, then
it will be a sure single to left field. Kyle Knoxville.
Hint: Easy strike outs: Either throw curveballs down and out of the strike
zone or to throw a slider that will curve outward form the batter.
Note: This may not work as well against well disciplined hitters,
such as Albert Pujols.
Throw two fastballs on the inside corner then a slider or curveball
on the outside corner. Note: This may not work all the time. Undertaker520634.
Start with a curveball or slider either low and away or low and
inside. Then, throw a four seam fastball low inside or a slider
low away. Next, throw a splitter as low as possible over the center
of the plate. This works most of the time and is better with Curt
Schilling or Roger Clemens. wesley.
Hint: Easy saves: After your starter has pitched six innings and your
team is winning, no matter what the score, put in your closer
in the seventh inning. Have him pitch the rest of the game. Bosnianpimpx10.
Hint: Steal home easily: Create a player that has 99 to100 in everything. Bunt
to get to first base, then lead off as much as possible. Choose
to steal third base just before you get to the base choose home
plate. The third baseman will not throw it to home plate and you
will be safe. Danny Bouck.
Hint: Easy MVP points: In dynasty mode, after simulating a season and before
you go to the playoffs, save the game. Then, keep reloading it.
This will give you a lot of MVP points. jordan ferguson.
Enter an exhibition, owner, or dynasty mode game. Choose a good
overall team (for example, the Yankees). Face a team with bad
pitching and defense (for example, the Rockies). Play on the MVP
level. Go to the game options in the in-game menu. Go to "Gameplay
Tuning" and change all the CPU's abilities (Contact, Power,
Speed, Pitcher Fatigue) to the minimum (-50). Change yours to
the maximum (50). It will now be easy to complete the MVP checklist
goals (hit two homers with same player, steal four bases with
same player, hit a grand slam, hit a triple, strike out ten, pitch
a perfect game). Because the game is under the MVP level, your
total MVP points will be multiplied by four, giving you a large
number of MVP points quickly. Note: You can do this on the other
levels. Under the Pro level the multiplier is two, and under the
All-Star level the multiplier is three. There is no bonus multiplier
for the Rookie level. RMKF6.
Trade everyone from your A-team to the Red Sox or any other team
you can get MVP points by winning a game against. Then, get eleven
of the worst prospects on the free agents list and set their stats
up as high as possible. Put them on your team, and set your team
as the away team. SIGBHOW.
Before the last out of the games, change the game option and game
difficulty to "MVP". Press Start and the message
"Are you sure you want to change the difficulty level? You
will not be able to earn MVP points for this game if you continue"
will appear. Select "Cancel". Then while still in MVP
difficulty, press Triangle. The message "Are you sure
you want to cancel your changes? Your changes will be lost"
will appear. Select "Yes", and at the end of the game
any milestones you get will be multiplied by four. Jared Bordin.
Hint: Easier trades: If you cannot get an All-Star or top prospect with
a player for player trade, go to free agents. Then, sign the top
free agent available and offer the same trade along with the free
agent to have a better chance at coming to terms with the CPU.
Use the following trick to get players like Ichiro, Beltre, Pujols,
etc. Choose good players on your team to trade for them. Edit
they players so that they have a five star career potential. When
you go to trade, have all three of your players (pitchers work
best) and the player that you want. With the other two slots open
to come to your team, select the two worst players on their A
team. The CPU will accept the trade about 70 of the time. Steven Saavedra.
If you do not want someone on your team, trade them and two players
from Triple-A. This will always work. Kingman.
Hint: Argue calls: If you think the first base umpire made a bad call,
press Triangle during the replay to argue it. Doing this
sends out your manager. It will show your manager walk out of
the dugout. A bar will apear near the bottom of the screen that
indicates argument intensity. Keep pressing Triangle as
fast as you can to make a real strong argument. However, you will
be ejected and the CPU will make all managerial decisions from
now on. If you want to argue without being ejected, press Triangle
only a few of times, so that about a one quarter or half of the
argument intensity bar is filled. Brian.
Hint: Tinker Field: Spring Training Stadium Three is in reality Tinker
Field in Orlando, Florida. The football stadium past the outfield
the Citrus Bowl, home to the University of Central Florida's Golden
Knights, and the 2004-2005 season Capitol One Bowl. Valo Rama.
Hint: Argue calls: If you argue with Joe Torre at any intensity level,
even none, he will be ejected. Do not argue with him unless it
is at the end of the game. Paul Markakis.
Hint: Batting mini-game: To hit to right field, swing late. To hit to left
field, swing early. To hit to center field, swing perfectly.
Hint: Change music: When at any menu select screen, to change the music
automatically move the Right Analog-stick clockwise. The
songs will play in the normal order or the way you chose to play
them. The Right Analog-stick might have to be rotated twice.
Hint: Creating good players for low pay:
When creating a player, leave his bio, equipment, looks,
hot zones, and batter tendencies alone. Set all of his batting
and fielding stats to zero. Do the same with pitchers, but also
make their pitches bad. Then, sign him to a seven year, $300,000
deal to the MLB. Then, edit their stats and make them perfect.
This works for owner mode. When their contracts are up, release
them and make new players. You can make them look however desired
and give them whatever bio you want. Try making them born from
July on in 1987 or the year that they turn 17. BuduBoy304.
Hint: Getting good players: To get a good player in dynasty or owner mode, create
a player and make him very bad. Then, put him in the free agents
and sign him to a seven year $700,000 contract. Then, edit him
to be the best ever. You will save money and he will not complain
about his contract. MikeDaPyro22.
To get good players without trading any good players on your roster,
make your worst player a free agent. Then, sign the free agent
that you desire. andyjmac1.
Hint: Getting a good team together: If you get stuck with two fielders at the same position
(for example Vladimir Guerrero and Gary Sheffield), just change
the lower man's position to the opposite field. Sheffield goes
up about 5-6 players in rank when you change him to left field.

In owner mode its possible to have players such as like Albert
Pujols, Carlos Beltran, Alfonso Soriano, and any other all-star
for a team salary of about $37 million. When you first start the
game, go to the edit rosters screen. Select you favorite team
and put anybody desired on there, from the best pitchers to the
best hitters, at every position. Make them really bad players.
Save and load the rosters then start a new owner mode. You can
sign Pujols for example for seven years at $300,000. You can then
increase his stats back up again. During that seven years he will
never complain about his contract. After the seven years is up,
if you still want him you can make him bad again before resigning
him. This also works with pitchers Joey McKay.
Hint: Recommended team: The following recommended players can be bought for
very low salaries. In owner mode, a team like this has a good
chance at winning a title . They are cheap and better yet they
are young. However, because these players are younger they will
generate less money from sponsors. Make sure you have some big
guns like Guerrero, Rodriguez, or Pujols to raise the bar. KJ Stokie.

Create the following team after enabling the Katie Roy
code or unlocking them normally. Note: They are all power hitters.
Whether you are playing Dynasty or Owner mode, try to acquire
the following players, which will be amazing future stars.
Matt Wiliamson (A team): Lancaster Jethawks (Arizona Diamondbacks)
Steve Brassard (AA team): New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Toronto Blue
Craig Simontacchi (A team): Lake Elsinor Storm (San Diego Padres)
Wes Krukow: (A team): San Jose Giants (San Francisco Giants)
Should you acquire these players (recommended that you sign them
when they are still playing single A ball, which would be your
first year in Dynasty or Owner mode), place M. Williamson in left
field, S. Brassard in right field, W. Krukow in center field and
C. Simontacchi as a designated hitter. Call these players up to
your AAA team. The following year, place them on your MLB team.
If you wish, you can now trade one of them, or keep them. It seems
best to trade Steve Brassard for a good infielder, because you
outfield is now stacked. Matt Williamson is fast, Steve Brassard
has a good arm, Wes Krukow has an amazing bat and very good fielding
stats, and Craig Simontacchi is an amazing hitter. Kyle Knoxville.
If you want a good team sign some of these players. If your team
is low on cash, make their stats really low and sign them. Then,
raise them back up to normal or even higher if desired. Jordan.
