General Gameplay

  • Hitters will have slightly less foul ball coverage, resulting in more swing and misses.
  • Fixed a freeze that could occur on foul tips that bounced near the catcher.
  • Users are now limited to pressing R2 to view pitch types once per pitch, for up to three seconds.
  • Wind has been turned off in Online Rated games.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the “Can’t Pitch” icon to become stuck on screen.
  • On balls hit in the air where runners stop to see if it is landing or getting caught, instead of going back to the previous base, runners will advance ONE base when the ball is clearly not going to be caught by the outfielder. 
  • Adjustments made to gesture timing for splitters and sinkers when using Pinpoint pitching. Splitters now have a more lenient criteria for perfect pitches, while sinkers now have a less lenient criteria for perfect pitches.

  • Fixed an issue which allowed a pitcher to get into a position player slot in the lineup.

Mini Seasons

  • Fixed a bug that would cause the away team to always wear home uniforms.


  • Improvements made to game stability.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the substitution prompt to display for the incorrect user.
