Jackie Moments Stage 3

SDS

What is everyone using for these? Directional, PCI, power, normal? I find these to be annoyingly difficult. Everything is good/okay.

SDS

I finished the single game ones last night on the first try. Come back today for the multi game ones and now an hour in with nothing complete.

I usually don’t have too much trouble with moments, but this has been tough. The pitching is horrendous. I can’t hit Samardzjia, Cueto and Gausman on veteran? Get out of here. For some reason, I’m late on everything they throw. And if I swing early, I hit a dribbler to third or short. Everything is a ground ball to the left side or shallow fly to right. I don’t get it.

The shadows in Sportsman’s are a pain and they have 99 fielder in CF. The pitching is either way off the plate or absolutely dotting on the black.

In other words, no. I can’t help you. I’ve tried swinging power and normal. No luck. But I have had better hits using just regular X swing. I haven’t tried directional. I usually only use that for HR missions.

I have not had much trouble with many moments either. It seems like sitting low against rightys and up vs lefties provides the hardest hit balls, but mostly everything is just okay.

SDS

The Braves one isn’t too bad. It’s just the Giants and Cardinals ones

SDS

Think i'm not even going to do the Moments there are plenty of pts from just the Stat missions & exchange. Had 2 done & didn't even know

SDS

I used Directional and X and it worked after a day or so maybe about 3 hours worth of time

SDS

The Cardinals one was challenging for sure--6 hits, 2 XBH in two games. Took me an hour or so and numerous attempts. I eventually got to where I would quit if I didn't get 3 hits in the first game. I used power swing in early innings to try and get a quick XBH, but then normal swing later on. Sometimes I did nothing but power swing, but that didn't work out too well.

When I finally accomplished it, I ended up getting lucky and going 6-7 in a high-scoring first game, and then power-swinging in the first AB of the second game for a double to get the mission.

SF wasn't as bad, but it isn't easy either. Cueto's changeup resulted in lots of weak grounders to third.

SDS

I did them all using zone hitting and the 6 hits in two games one is the only one that held me up for a bit. I’ve struggled with most hitting missions in Sportman’s park nothing seems to hit the gaps for the xbh’s. Outfielders always run them down. Just came down to getting lucky eventually.

SDS

My question is for the voucher exchange. It says it is repeatable and I turned in two of them, but if you say, complete the get on base 10 times, can you just keep resetting and earning the voucher over and over if you want or once you complete it, then you are done.

SDS

They made it so I have to get doubles or triples or do stats online with his crappy card before I can even try even though I finished the program all the way through after stage 2 so I may never know.

SDS

It’s no help for the xbhs, but Robinson is a bunt cheese machine...even against the computer.

SDS

What worked for me was bunting to the second baseman with no one on base. It was a hit every time. Then power swing for the extra base hits to finish it off.

I find that good/okay is generally a result of timing being off. Try swinging slightly earlier. Perfect/Perfect is actually slightly early timing according to their in game strategy guide.

SDS

PCI. Normal. Breezed through every one except the 6 hit/2xbh in two games. That took a little dashboarding. First game I had a double and 2 singles and I am thinking wow easy peasy. Ya right. Haha. Probably took me close to an hour of good/okays and 93 mph perfect/perfect fly outs short of the warning track to finally get it. And when I finally did it was single double HR and done. Haha. Feels like the cpu lets ya sometimes ya know? Thought this third stage gave me less grief than some of the other parts of the program (the doubles and triples especially).
