No Foul?? Glitches

The ball was hit into foul territory, directly into the crowd behind the batter, but no foul was awarded. The foul ball was called a ground-rule double, and with a runner on third base, the opposing team scored the winning run. Ground-rule doubles are routinely awarded to players who hit the ball into the outfield, and the ball bounces into the crowd. The batter receives an automatic double, advancing each runner on base by two, even though it isn't a home run technically.

Magnet Glove Glitch Glitches

What players refer to as a "magnet glove," in which a home run is pulled back in and caught by the outfielder. While this glitch occurs relatively rarely, several players claim it has happened to them, and in some cases, it has completely ruined the outcome of a game. This bug allows home runs to be sucked back into the outfield and caught for an out, meaning even MLB The Show 22's best pitchers won't have to rely solely on strikeouts.

Setting Your Stance Hints

The batting stance creator's level of customization may intimidate new players. Try Legend Stance 26 for a nice, friendly starting stance because it has no weaknesses or natural tendencies on its own. Alternately, look around to find a different one that you like, perhaps the stance of a favorite player.

When using the same stance, no two players will get the same result. The key, then, is to change your stance. Adjust the batting stance to your liking. Raise it, for example, if pitches higher in the zone are causing problems.

The Bullpen Hints

In real baseball, starters are encouraged to go the distance if possible. As a result, the bullpen is less stressed, and the relievers are more rested for the next game. Consider that almost every video game is played individually.

That means there's no reason to conserve the bullpen arms. You should pull the starter soon, even if you have the best cards at each position. A low-ranked reliever is superior to a highly ranked but tired starter.

Walk Big Hitters Hints

Pride frequently prevents gamers from making the best decisions. They'll put themselves in the position of pitching to an elite first baseman who can only hit home runs and hope for a strikeout. Don't do it. If the first base is free and the next batter is ineffective, walk the batter.

Yes, a runner is now on the base. However, just like in baseball, this sets up a double play. They're not a threat on the basepaths, especially for slow sluggers. It is not cowardice; it is simply smart baseball.

Dynamic Difficulty Hints

When you first launch MLB The Show 22, you will be prompted to use Dynamic Difficulty. This means you'll start the game on the easiest settings so you can get a feel for how it works, and the difficulty will gradually increase based on how well you do. Fortunately, if things become too difficult, you can change these settings and return to Beginner difficulty at any time.

Custom Practise Hints

Practice is the best way to improve your hitting and learn how to recognize different pitches. MLB The Show introduced Custom Practise, which allows you to practice against specific pitchers and locations, as well as work on specific problem areas at the plate. Before adding more stimuli, make sure you're comfortable with the basics.

Getting Stubs Quickly Hints

You can earn stubs quickly without spending a ton of money at the shop. The best part is that playing the game itself is the quickest way to earn stubs.

At various points, players will earn players, equipment, uniforms, perks, and ballparks that they do not want to use. Sell to the highest bidder after researching the market. If you play the game for an hour or two a day, it shouldn't take you more than a few weeks to amass all the best equipment and benefits.

Camera View Guides

The most popular setting for your camera is the strike zone view because of how close you are to the pitcher. This setting won’t work well for every player or pitcher. Sometimes the pitches are coming in too fast, and you’re battling to hit them. Don’t be afraid to try changing your camera view around in-game, sometimes, a new perspective helps.

Basics of Batting Guides

The default controls use the same buttons for each swing type regardless of batting style.

Normal Swing strikes a balance between power and precision. By default, you'll make a Normal Swing by pressing the bottom button of your controller; X (PlayStation), A (Xbox), or B (Switch).

Power Swing foregoes accuracy in favor of distance. On a power swing, the ball will probably land in the outfield or further if you are successful in making solid contact. Power Swings are performed by pressing the controller's left button; Square (PlayStation), X (Xbox), or Y (Switch).

Contact Swing is solely concerned with getting the bat to make contact with the ball. While a Contact Swing can prolong an at-bat on a full count and, if done correctly, even result in a base hit, you're more likely to get unfavorable hits like fouls, grounders, and fly balls. Make a Contact Swing with the right button; Circle (PlayStation), B (Xbox), or A (Switch).

Bunts virtually eliminate all swing power, causing the ball to land close to the plate. The opposing team is forced to rush to pick up the ball as a result, usually as a sacrifice play to allow baserunners who are already on base to advance. Bunting is accomplished by pressing the top button; Triangle (PlayStation), Y (Xbox), or X (Switch).

Time Your Swings

MLB The Show 22's physics for swing timing have been tweaked to provide a more realistic baseball experience. You should swing slightly earlier for inside pitches and slightly later for outside pitches to maximize your effectiveness at the plate.

Batting Styles
There are three types of batting styles in MLB The Show22: MVP Edition. If you've played a previous entry in the series, you probably already know which style you prefer, but it's worth checking out Zone Hitting for the new PCI Anchor feature.

Timing Hitting

For players who are brand-new to the game or who prefer a casual, non-granular experience, timing hitting is a fantastic option. All you have to do to play with Timing Hitting is time the swing correctly, and your batter will attempt to swing for a spot that will make good contact. The ball is much harder to control in this mode compared to others, which is a drawback.

Playing an Exhibition Game with Timing Hitting enabled is a great way to get a sense of the reaction times required for various pitches if you simply need to improve your timing. You can always switch to Directional or Zone Hitting for a more thorough experience once you're comfortable with Timing Hitting.

Directional Hitting

Directional Hitting is similar to Timing Hitting in that it is relatively simple, but it allows the player to have more control over where the ball goes when struck. While playing Directional Hitting, moving the left stick in that direction will slightly nudge the camera in that direction, which will cause your batter to alter his swing in an effort to get the ball to go that way. To get the best results, you'll still need to time your swing properly.

The simplest method for finding weaknesses in the opposing team's defense is direction hitting (such as an outfield heavily shifted to one direction or the other). Just aim upwards and take a contact swing if you need to hit a sacrifice fly. If you switch to Directional Hitting before the pitch is thrown, this is especially simple. A drawback of Directional Hitting is that it's simple to send the ball too far in your chosen direction; keep the ball in your center to prevent unnecessary fouls.

Zone Hitting

Zone Hitting is the most difficult batting mode to master in MLB The Show 22, but mastering it grants you unparalleled versatility at the plate. You can freely move the PCI or pitch control indicator, targeting reticule while at bat to direct the sweet spot of your swing. Your outcome will be better if the dot in the PCI's center is closer to the ball when it makes contact.

You must have the ability to predict incoming pitches and respond accordingly in order to master Zone Hitting. By using the PCI Anchor feature, which will be available in 2022, you can set the PCI's default position to any batting zone of your choosing. You won't need to use the PCI to chase the ball if you correctly predicted the pitch location and can swing away as if you were using timing hitting.

Koogs46 explains how to effectively used the PCI feature.
