one thing i absolutley hate

SDS

most unrealistic aspect of this game is the fact that a right handed hitter can hit a 97+ mph fastball on the outside corner to left field. Anyone who has ever played baseball or watches it knows that if anyone ever did that they would literally break their bat and hands. So unrealistic!

SDS

I don't believe you watch baseball

i play and i can asure u that it is actually impossible. you should try it

SDS

If it's over the plate, it can be hit to anywhere on the field. Lots of hitters have a much further reach and with authority too, to anywhere over the plate. Lots of them look for it away because they crowd..
This isn't 1982 anymore

There's no point in reasoning with some people around here, he probably never held a bat in his life and would break his wrist on just trying this.

The more frustrating aspect is, as a hitter, you should be trying to be a bit late and rock that bad boy oppo field...nope, Foul Ball Every time. Especially when you're trying to hit against the shift. But throw one Sinker low and away to Charlie Blackmon and you know [censored] well he's roping a liner down the third base line.

SDS

All I have to say to OP is pick a number. Nothing in this game is realistic. If you’re frustrated about hitting, you should frustrated at pitchers hitting 102MPH for 120 pitches, starters coming in as relievers constantly, starters being able to pitch every third day because stamina regen sucks. If you want real baseball, you’ll have to pick up a bat and head to your nearest field.

This is an arcade game at best.

SDS

Lol it is most definitely “possible” to pull an outside pitch at any level. I.e Anthony Rizzo. Now pulling a 440ft homer on an outside pitch is a different story. Depending on the guy. There’s definitely a gray area to this comment.

SDS

Yah I'm sure people thought it was impossible to hit 100mph fastball 20 years ago too. They were wrong.

Can you give us an exact time of the video where he pulls a 97+ fastball on the outer third of the plate for a homerun to left liefd? This is a compilation video.

SDS

Guys make their careers on pulling outside pitches by crowding. Rizzo is a great example.
Jose Bautista is another. In his prime he could turn on anything inside with an insanely fast bat, so he would crowd the plate and smash outside pitches, adjusting to inside pitches or letting them go

SDS

Lol that video was a breaking ball low and middle, terrible example.

He doesn’t. The one that’s close is like the 4th or 5th vs Seattle. Most of the others are all breaking balls

My point is, it is 100% possible to pull an outside fastball. It may not be in the video, my apologies.

Okay thank you for sharing a useless video in this debate then and proving absolutely nothing.

Edit: OP was very specific about the details. 97+ mph on the outside corner pulled for a homerun to LEFT FIELD. Show me a video of anyone doing that.

We’re not arguing that you can pull an outside pitch. Of course thats possible. But to pull a 97MPH outside fastball and hit it 400+ feet is a different story

Ok ya, that would be very hard. Not impossible if you were crowding enough, but definitely tough to do. It would be more dead centre on a 97+ fastball for sure
