Cannot pull the ball for the life of me

SDS

I hit using pure analog and it seems like no matter what I do, I cannot hit the ball to the pull field. Maybe one out of 20 or 30 of my balls in play go to the pull side. About 5 out of 20 go to center but the vast majority go to the opposite side. I do admit that even with the fastball pitch speed at 5 and offspeed pitch speeds lower than that, I find it almost impossible to have early swing timing (but I dont like them that low because I almost never strikeout, which is unrealistic). I trust that is probably the most important factor in which field the ball goes to, but is there something else that I should be doing? I'd like this game to play as realistically as possible and having 75% or more of batted balls going to the opposite field is not realistic.

Bat speed. Not fast enough to the ball so it’s going oppo. I’d rather hit oppo anyway so I don’t know why you’re madZ especially with shift guys up

I do prefer oppo field hitting as well, but not to such a high degree. I'm not mad, just would like it to be more realistic.

Try getting underneath the ball more to lift it, I know it's hard to consistently get back to back hits especially facing that glitch Kershaw wannabe Kluber but just sit in certain spots n study his pitch analysis of where he pitches. Everyone has a pattern😉
