Before you go, get ready to step up to the plate with a few tips to help your game. And remember, the most important tip is to practice, practice, practice!

  1. MLB The Show 21 introduced Pinpoint Pitching, a new way to deliver the highest level of accuracy in your throws. Try it, but use the pitching mode that suits your style of gameplay best.
  1. Throw some intentional balls and don’t be predictable when pitching. Once a batter is behind in the count, they may be more likely to chase a wide pitch and strike out. Shake it up and work the count!
  1. There are many ways to customize your PCI (including color) in the options menu. Change it up to find the one that helps you maximize your gameplay. Then spend time in the practice mode to get your timing down with the interface you chose.
