Don't worry, this is a very common problem and you are not alone. The issue is that you are either standing too far or too close to the plate. You need to adjust your angle to make sure that you are in the right place at the right time and that you aren't swinging to earlier or too late.

Pitching Tips


Hold A and B buttons to throw a 'splitter' ball. This ball is difficult to hit and strikes out people because it's aimed at their feet.

How To Throw A Strike-Out Pitch:

Hold down the 2 button, and the left or right button (not at the same time) to throw a strike-out ball. For instance, if you hold down the 2 button, the pitch will be low and harder for the batter to hit.

How To Get A Red Bat:

Hold the A, 1, and 2 buttons while the screen is loading, and your bat will turn red.

How To Pitch Underhand:

Hold down the 2 button to throw an underhand ball. Switch back to pitching overhand by pressing the 1 button.

I have a lighting bolt Sklz pitching machine and it won't pitch the ball but about 5 feet do u know what could be wrong with it


Amanda, If you already have the speed up, then it would be a tension issue, look for tension adjustment, this will squeeze the ball harder, hense will not slip and will toss ball better.

Power shuts off when i turn on switch


There can be two possible reasons for this to occur. The first would be that the pitching machine might need more power than that which is available at home, or the machine might be working for a long time and may have got heated up.

Can you take the rubber balls out of a pitching machine and replace that with normal baseballs?


It depends on the machine but usually the answer is less. Just be aware that doing this can change the trajectory of the ball because baseballs are much lighter than the rubber balls.

I have a 2 wheel combo pitcher and when i drop the ball into the shoot it just bobbles around.It will not throw it


You most likely need to use medium grade sandpaper and use it one the tires. They need to be sanded down in order for the machine to shoot the balls out.

GamePlay:

EA SPORTS PURE SWING SYSTEM:

The Strike zone is divided into nine colored squares. Red squares mark the batter's hot zones. Blue squares are the batter's cold zones. Clear squares are neutral for the batter.

Take unprecedented control at the plate by moving the Control Stick during your swing.

-The results of your swing depend on your timing, the location of the pitch, and the direction you move the Control Stick.
-For the best results, move the Control Stick towards the location of the pitch.
-To hit the ball in the air, move the Control Stick Diagonal Up-Left / Up / Diagonal Up-Right while swinging. This increases the chances of hitting a fly ball, but also increases your chances of missing the ball if the pitch isn't up in the zone.
-To hit the ball on the ground, move the Control Stick Diagonal Left-Down / Down / Diagonal Right-Down while swinging. Keep in mind that high pitches are very difficult to hit on the ground.
-To hit the ball to the left, move the Control Stick Diagonal Left- Down / Left / Diagonal Up-Left while swinging. For the best results, use this when the pitch is coming in on the left side of the plate.
-To hit the ball to the right, move the Control Stick Diagonal Right-Down / Right / Diagonal Up-Right while swinging. For the best results, use this when the pitch is coming in on the right side of the plate.

TO THROW A PITCH:

1. Press and hold the button that corresponds to the pitch you want to throw. The bar inside the pitch meter begins moving.
2. Release the pitch button when the bar reaches the end of the pitch meter. The closer your release point is to the end of the meter, the more effective the pitch is.
3. Press the pitch button again when the bar is within the green accuracy zone near the beginning of the pitch cycle to determine the pitch's accuracy.
-The effect of a bad pitch depends on the type of pitch. For example, ineffective fastballs are slower than normal, and less effective breaking pitches are flatter.
-If a pitcher misses the green accuracy zone by a considerable amount, an indicator (red for hot zone, blue for cold zone, yellow for ball, white for neutral) appears to tip off the batter to the location of the pitch.


PITCH SELECTION

Your pitcher's pitch selection appears on-screen. Not all pitchers have the same arsenal of pitches. A pitcher's four-seam fastball is always assigned to A Button. The remaining pitches are assigned to X, B, Y and R Button (though not all pitchers have five pitches).

FIELDING

-If you power up the throw into the red zone, you throw harder, but less accurately, which could result in an error.
-If you select to throw to either a base or the cut-off man before the ball arrives, the fielder begins his throw immediately upon receiving the ball.

NOTE: The CPU automatically adjusts your defensive alignment based on the situation. However, you can override this by choosing the infield and outfield alignments yourself.


EA SPORTS BIG PLAY CONTROL:

Using the all-new EA SPORTS Big Play Control, you can climb the fence to rob home runs, make spectacular diving catches, slide around tags, and more.

FIELDING:

- To dive or stretch for a ball just out of your reach, move the C Stick Left/Right toward the ball.
-To climb the wall to snag a would-be home run or jump for a ball over your head, move the C Stick Up.
-To make a sliding catch, move the C Stick Down as the ball approaches.

BASERUNNING
Timing is the key to a perfect slide. Use EA SPORTS Big Play Control to create havoc on the base paths.

C Stick:
Up = Head-first slide
Diagonal Up-Left/Up-Right = Head-first slide to the left/right side of the bag
Down = Pop-up slide
Diagonal Down-Right/Down-Left = Hook slide to the right/left side of the bag
Up = Dislodge ball from catcher.
