Hint: Easy points

You can gain "points" for certain feats performed during a game. Throwing a perfect game, for example, will earn you an easy 100 points. Switch controls every time the CPU is up at bat and intentionally strike out. This will get you points for 27 strikeouts, and for a perfect game. Repeat as many times as needed. To get more points in franchise mode in order to sign your free agents, create a player and pick him up as a free agent during the off season, or sign free agents and release them at the end of the off season. Use two controllers and keep throwing fast balls on both sides until a late inning. You can go into extra innings for more points in strikeouts, then hit a ground ball on the team you want to win and make the other team just hold it. Run around the bases with the other controller. This will count as an error and give the other pitcher a no-hitter.

Another way to earn points is to unlock the All-Speed team or the All-Power team and play in Exhibition mode, setting your opponent as an easy team such as the Indians. Set the game to only one inning. With the All-Speed team keep bunting or hitting and get a run or two in. With the All-Power team, get a home run or a run in then try to strike out the all the opponents or just do not let them get a hit. You should then get points for a complete game, a no-hitter, a shutout, and a few other things.

Hint: Easy points in trivia mode

For easy points in any one of the three modes of trivia (classic, home run derby, and speed), do not continue to the next question after getting an answer incorrect. Instead, press B so that the game asks if you want to quit. Then, press B again to remain in the game. After you have done this, press A to go advance to the next question. As a result, the game will give you a single and not penalize you with an out. Note: In home run derby trivia, this method will give you a home run instead of an out.

Hint: Easy runs

For some easy runs, get Barry Bonds to bat in the third spot in the order and play against the Cubs. Take control of the Cubs and start intentionally walking everyone until Barry Bonds is up for the second time. Rotate the hitting icon so it will hit a home run. Make contact and you will hit a grand slam. Repeat this as many times as needed. Note: Do not check the box score after 100 runs or the game will freeze.

Hint: Easy home runs

For some easy home runs, press Start and go to the game options. Turn on the "Easy Batting" option. There will be no batting cursor; just press A then press B to hit for power.

Hint: Easy wins

For easy wins, switch controllers to the opposing team and change all the players to pitchers. The CPU will be much worse on defense. If you can pitch well, you will also get a lot of strikeouts.

Hint: Easy wins in a season

For some easy wins in a season, save the game then go to schedule. Simulate the game. If you did not win, return to the main menu and load the season. Repeat this until you win the game.

Hint: Control home run replay

After hitting a home run, a replay of it will be displayed. When you see your batter heading home from third base, press various buttons to see different angles.

Hint: Better hitting

Immediately after the pitcher releases the ball, press Start. You will see where the ball is going and if it will be a strike or ball. Resume the game and move your batting cursor over it to get a nice powerful swing. This will help you improve your hitting. Note: You do not need to press Start directly after he lets go of the ball - it just gives you more time to move your cursor after the game is resumed. Use the pause technique before batting. When you see where the ball is going, try your best to get the ball as close to the point of the contact triangle (the part closest to the batter, not the thick part of the triangle). you will usually get home runs or at least doubles.

Another way to improve hitting is to wait until the pitcher's arm is in motion and is coming forward, then swing. If it looks like a bad pitch do not swing. This strategy works most of the time, and works well with players such as Giambi, Bonds, or A-Rod To control where the ball flies after you hit it, disable batting cursor off by going to the "Game Options" screen and turning on the "Easy Batting" option. Then, hold Left or Right until you swing. This is useful if the wind is blowing in a bad direction.

Hint: Better pitching

The best pitchers have a pitch called a "Slurve" (for example, Mark Burhele of the Chicago White Sox). Also try the "Dominate Curve" with Pedro.

Hint: Steal bases

To steal a base, press R.

Hint: Restore pitcher's energy

In season, franchise or expansion mod, go to the DL, and put any pitcher on the15 day DL. Then immediately take him back into your lineup. He will have recovered all his energy.

Hint: Better franchise or expansion mode teams

Use trades to exchange older, less talented players for slightly better players. Even if the CPU rejects your trade, keep trying repeatedly and it may eventually accept. However, make the trade reasonable, such as a B- for a B or B+. If the player you really want just does not seem to want to join your team, try trading for another player who is slightly better, then return to that player you want and try again. Do this every season to keep talented, young players.

Hint: Resign players for same points but longer deals

Start in the franchise value menu and use R1 to release one or two players who you do not want back. This will allow you to build up some extra points. Then, release the player you want to resign for more years. Go to the free agents screen and resign him for 50 points and any number of years. Go back to franchise value and release him again. When you go to resign that player again, the amount of points will usually be the same amount as before you released him the first time but he will demand the same number of years that you signed him for after the first time you released him.

Hint: Easy cards

To unlock all the cards in one or two games, play as Legends after unlocking Cooperstown Legends and the Pixels. You will find that within the fifth or sixth inning, every hit equals ten points and possibly more. Constantly hit home runs and strike out the batters and you should have forty to fifty packs to open after the game. This is the easiest way to complete your card collection and unlock the cheats.

Alternatively, choose the Yankees at the Phillies. Choose to play as the Phillies under any difficulty setting. When the first batter is up, pause game play and select "Change Lineup". Then, select "Defensive Replacement". Choose the catcher, then start using pitchers. Repeat this step until you have run out of pitchers for the catchers. Then, choose an outfielder to be the catcher. Then, go to "Position Swap", and switch positions with the first baseman and catcher. Go to "Defensive Replacement" again and choose any other player to be the first basemen. Switch to the Yankees for an easy win for cards.

Another way to gain easy cards is to use two controllers. Each controller will control one team. Stay pitching in the middle of the strike zone, and batting for home runs. If you do not hit a home run, control the fielders and do not catch the ball in the air and throw it to a base. Then, with the batting controller, keep pressing L to score a point. The game will never end. When the score is about 50 for each team, finish the game and you will have about 100 packs to open. To get all the cheats and cards in one to two games, do the following trick. In the exhibition mode, pick the Atlanta Braves and the Baltimore Orioles as your two teams. Have the Orioles as the home team and the Braves as the away team. Choose the Braves as your team and when up to bat, drag bunt with Rafael Furcal. If he gets to first base with nobody else on, always steal second base. Hit with power with Chipper Jones, Gary Sheffield, Andru Jones and Vinny Castilla. Hit regularly with everybody else. When you get three outs, switch to the Orioles and pop-up every pitch. This will get you no hitter points 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th inning, and for the ninth inning, pop-up with the first two batters and get the last player out yourself. This will get you points for a no hitter and points for a perfect game. If done correctly, and you average about five runs an inning, you should have at the very least forty packs to open, if not more.

Easter Egg: Thom Brennaman's stories

Start a game and allow the controller to remain idle. A few minutes after they have announced the lineups and the starting pitcher, Thom Brennaman will begin telling in-depth stories about baseball.

Hint: Get Pedro Martinez on your pitching

To get Pedro Martinez on your team, create at least an A- Designated Hitter. Trade him for Randy Johnson of the Diamondbacks, then trade Johnson for Martinez. The Red Sox will refuse the trade at first, but retry it once or twice and they will agree to it.

Hint: Powerful team

For a powerful team, create as many powerful designated hitters as you can. Note: There is a limited amount. After this is done, take them out of the free agents brackets. Trade them for as many All-Star players as possible to create a dominating team.

Hint: Catcher

Use the following settings for a better catcher

Hint: Designated hitter - option A

In season, expansion or franchise mode, create players, then trade them for the person you want. The best created player you can make is a designated hitter. Use the following settings.

Hint: Relief pitcher

To get a better relief pitcher in your bullpen, create a pitcher and give him the attributes noted in the table below.

Note: A B+ rating for your reliever may not appear the first time you do this; cycle through the CPU-generated stats and look for the following:

You will have some creation points leftover. You could add points to either Pickoff, Batting, or Defense. Add some points to his stamina if you want him to be a long relief pitcher. Do not give him any higher than a B on his stamina, as he will take longer to warm up in the bullpen.
