How in the world?

SDS

Took a nice little break from the game, I needed it. Started a BR game just now, on a 4-0 run that I started last week. Score is 2-2 and then my opponent hits a 2 run homer ON THIS

Are you FFFFFFing kidding me? I knew exactly what my opponent was looking for. I read him like a book. I knew he was gonna chase, so I spot the pitch extra high. Because you know... in this game you can never be to sure, those can still be crushed. But I've NEVER seen anything like this before and it actually turns my stomach.

Edit: my pitcher was O'Day with full stamina.

Don’t know why people complain about BR it’s the most scripted thing ever

I'm not complaining about BR, I'm complaining about him being able to hit this ball out of the park.

The most power can be generated from pulling a high pitch, so I can believe it.

Dude that is exactly what happened to me the other day!!! I was 3-1 and blew my run because of that. It wasn't the best run but still, 1500 stubs adds up

Please. That ball was at eye level, probably even higher. Have you ever swung a bat in real life? No way you're generating power THAT high my guy😂

I know you're being sarcastic.

It’s called... really lucky, I guess? I don’t know how that leaves the infield.

“He would’ve had to go with the old school tommy hawk to hit that one” or whatever

I'm okay with balls above the zone being hit out of the park, but this is just physically impossible.

Sometimes you just close your eyes, pray, and hope someone is listening.

For him, EVERYONE was listening.

All Star is such a piece of sh!t difficulty. My Lord.

It's actually not eye level,though by the rule book it should be. top of the strike zone is just above the belly button,which is accurate to real life, from the rule book it should be the bottom of arm pits but hasn't been that in over 20years.

Going by just above belly button - I estimate that pitch to be bottom of the collar bone.

What? Top of the strike zone is shoulder height. This is above eye level.

And the pitcher gets a hit! This is about the shoulder level, so yeah it happens!

Yeah I said eye level, not shoulder level. Did you even see the screenshot or are you just trying to troll me? I seriously can not believe you're defending this as being okay or normal.

In all seriousness, it was an 88 MPH fastball. Who did the guy hit it with and was it down the line in a small park? Evan Gattis did it on a 95 heater a couple of years ago against Trevor Bauer.

SDS

That’s one of the reasons this game blows.

Hey, you know what else happens in RL? Lake Erie midge invasions. Fans catching balls still in play. Corked bats and pitchers using foreign substances on the ball. Streaking fans.

This game needs more realism!

Yeah, I saw the image! Sorry, but there is no way that is eye level. It looks about 1/3 of the strike zone high. If the average strike zone is about 24", that is 8" high, so about the letters, not eyes. I'm not trying to argue you, but maybe the graphic isn't showing the true magnitude of how high it was.
