Easy ground rule double:
Hit a ball on bounce out of view in left or right field in fair territory in any stadium, and it will be counted as a ground rule double.
Select Pete Wheeler to be on your team. When he is at the plate, have him bunt. If it is a fair ball, he will get on base about 99% of the time. You can then easily steal bases with him.
Hit a ball on a fly out of view in left or right field in fair territory in any stadium, and it will be counted as a homerun.
At Steele Stadium, hit the ball on the shack in center field and it will be counted as a homerun.
Easy strike outs:
Before you throw a pitch, click on it and watch the pitcher. If the pitcher nods his head yes, throw the pitch and it should be a strike. If the pitcher shakes his head no, do not throw that ball and find a different pitch. Continue to throw pitches that the pitcher nods "yes" to until the batter is struck out. Note: This trick works most, but not all, of the time.
In the middle of any game, your pitcher will naturally start to lose juice. However, you do not have to change pitchers. Try to throw strikes as much as possible until you have absolutely no juice remaining. You will not be able to see any red in the straw. Obviously the pitch target will now be very large. Choose any pitch. Aim the pitch directly for the kid's head. The ball should be on his head or very close to it. Click to throw the pitch, and even if the shaded region is not in the strike zone, the ball will still be a strike.
Good days and bad days:
When you look at pictures of players in the background, it will be different colors. These colors are blue, orange, and green. When the background of a player is blue, that player is going to have a bad day. When the background of a player is orange, that player is going to have a great day. When a player's background is green, that player is going to have an average day.
Create a team that is all pink, then pick Maria Luna to be on your team. They should now be rated as 10 Batting, 10 Running, 9 Pitching, and 9 Fielding.
Barry Bonds walks out of park:
Go to a single mode game. Play at Steele Stadium (the park with the shed) and have Barry Bonds on your team. Put Barry Bonds in left field. Then, intentionally allow the batter on the other team to hit and throw it to Barry Bonds. Make Barry Bonds go up to the fence, then click out of the park repeatedly. Also try the same thing where the fence and the bushes meet. If done correctly, Barry Bonds should walk out of the park.
