Taunt crowd:
When playing an away game, hit a homerun and press L3 when running the bases to taunt the crowd.

Homerun celebration:
Press R1 when you are running the bases after hitting a homerun. Your player will blow kisses to the crowd. If you continue pressing R1, your player will jump on home plate.

Hint: Easy points:
Start a two player game, with only one actual player. Throw a perfect game, striking out every batter. Save the game in the bottom of the ninth inning with two strikes and two outs. Finish the game, collect your points, and save the options. Reload the game and repeat to collect the points again. Change to the team that you are facing and make them play poorly, allowing your original team to score a lot of runs. In the last inning, switch back to your team and claim your team's cheaply made points. Use the following trick to get extra points to buy packs of cards. Play a quick game as the Negro Stars. Chose a bad team to play against, such as the Tigers or Devil Rays. Then, press Square to display an options screen. Go to "Game Options" and change the number of innings to 1. Play the game. When you are up to bat, keep bunting. When you are pitching, get all three outs and save your points. You should have enough for about seventeen packs of cards.

Hint: Easy homeruns:
When controlling Barry Bonds at bat, press the Square so that you are on "Power" and not "Contact". When you are on "Power", only the yellow box will appear, and when you are on "Contact", there will be a shaded area covering the yellow box. If the pitch is up and in, move the box there and swing. It will almost always be an automatic
homerun.

Hint: Free balls:
If you are down in the count or need a quick ball, pretend to lay down a bunt. Pull back while the pitcher is in his motion. This should result in a ball being thrown. Note: This only works up to two times in an at bat.

Hint: Throw hard 4 seam fastball correctly:
If you have a pitcher or created player that throws a hard 4 seam fastball, always place the pitching cursor below where you want the pitch to go. The pitch will automatically rise after the pitcher releases it. However, with other pitches (curveball, slider, changeup, etc.) the ball will end up where you put the pitching cursor.

Hint: Restore pitcher's energy:
Wait until your pitcher has low energy then pause game play. If your pitcher is still on the mound, go to "Save Game and Quit", then save the game. Restart the system, and when you go to the main menu, load the game. When you finish loading, it should automatically take you back to the game, and it should show your pitcher on the mound with the full green energy bar.

Hint: Slide step:
Use this trick to do a slide step. When your pitcher is in the stretch, select a pitch, and before you press Pitch, hold the Left Analog-stick.

Hint: Pick off from the catcher:
When the ball is released, hold L and the base that you would like to throw the ball to. The catcher will then snap up and throw the ball to the selected base. Note: This only works when you are pitching.

Hint: View player's energy in franchise mode:
When at the main menu in franchise mode, go to "GM Office", then "Roster Management", then "Disabled List". Press X and look through your players to see which ones are tired (except pitchers). If a starting player is tired, you should bench and rest him for one game.

Hint: Change jerseys in franchise mode:
Before playing in a franchise mode game, go to quick play, and on the team's options highlight "Change Uniform". Go back, exit quick play, load the franchise, and when you get to the play game screen on options, your pointer will be on the blacked out uniform part. Press X and you can change uniforms. Once you change lineups or pitchers, this option is no longer available; it only works for that one game.

Hint: Better players:
Select the "Extras" option at the main menu, then choose "Player Management". On that screen is a category called "Player Editor". It allows you to improve players. In season mode, go to "GM", then choose "Player Management", then "Player Editor". Note: Making a player all A+ may result in the game freezing in later innings.

Hint: Sign All-star players to long-tern contracts for less:
Create as many players as desired for the positions you want by using the "Create-A-Player" option. Collect the players you have made from the free agent pool and sign them to your team. Once you have all of your created players that you want, go to "Roster Management", then to "Long-Term Contracts". Offer each player you created a long-term contract at the same, or even for a lower price than they want. Since the players are not proven in the major leagues, they will sign for
basically nothing (just for the chance to play). You can now edit their stats in "Player Editor". Make each player the best that they can be (everything A+), and you will have the best team for the lowest price. Use this in franchise or expansion modes.

Hint: Demote player without other teams claiming him off waivers:
Go to the player editor and make all his stats to D- so that no teams would want to claim him off waivers. When you want to promote a player back to the Major Leagues, change his ratings back to his default settings.

Hint: Easy win:
Start a game with and set the skill level on anything except "Manage Only". Pause gameplay go to "Controller Select". Switch the controller to the team that you want to lose. Then, go into "Team Management" at the pause screen. Change the pitcher and the fielders to the wrong positions. You can also put pitchers in as pinch hitters. Then, return to "Controller Select" and change back to your original team. The CPU may switch the players around, but you can put the wrong ones in again. You will not get any card points if you play
the entire game with the losing team. Note: there is a slight chance of your game freezing if player positions are swapped too often.

Hint: Easy scoring at Pac Bell Park:
Try to hit the ball to the right-center field corner. If your man has speed and you are on third before the ball gets to the cutoff man, run home. The cutoff man should throw it to the catcher, and most of the time he gets down in a stance to block the plate. When he does this, press L2 and you will stop. When he gets out of his stance, continue going home and you will be safe.

Hint: Created pitcher:

  • Height: 6'6"
    Weight: 203
    + 4 Seam Fastball
    + Curveball
    + Slider
    + Changeup

Stance and deliver are 3/4 low kick
Have all stats up

Glitch: Late swing:
When you are at bat, for some reason when you press Swing, the player will actually swing a moment after it is pressed resulting in a swing and a miss. You should press Swing in advance, preferably after the pitcher releases the ball.

Glitch: Minors players:
You cannot trade, play, or promote minors players for Quick Play mode.

Glitch: Minors pitchers in MLB modes:
The inability to trade, play, or promote minors players for Quick Play mode still applies for pitchers. However for pitchers like Cliff Lee (Cleveland Indians minor), to be able to play him, you must promote him to the majors, then make multiple trades with any pitcher from other teams that are already on the pitching staff. To ensure security of playing time, keeping trading him with a starting pitcher or a middle reliever until you get him to a team that you desire.
