Best hitting view

SDS

Since I don’t have a monitor to really time the fastball, what the best view besides strike zone to hit with? I feel like I can pick up the fastball because it comes in too hot at that view.

SDS

If you have trouble with high and or inside heat, try strike zone offset

ZOOM view.

Strike zone !!

SDS

W/o a monitor you’ll never consistently hit a FB especially on hof or higher. I switch between strike zone and strike zone 2

SDS

I go between strike zone 2 and zoom. Most of the time i use strike zone 2 but if I start swinging at bad pitches I switch to zoom. I feel like zoom allows me to recognize pitches sooner

SDS

MLB 15 is always good when I want a break from strike zone

SDS

Strike zone. It gives you the largest view of the strike zone, and more pixels on your TV to see the ball. Started using it in MLB 18 and never looked back.

SDS

Strike Zone 2 for me. Reg Strike Zone is too zoomed and I cant determine pitches like that

SDS

Just changed to strike zone 2 from high I like it

SDS

I switched from Strike Zone to Zoom and found that it's easier to get harder hits. I had a 26 hit game on all-star, before jumping back into hall of fame games this ranked season.

With the extended view and ability to see the batter, it's easier to swing at the ball in accordance with the batter's stance. This creates more swings that are on the early side of good, which seems to be the meta this year.

Thank you.

This is a nice bit of detail about why zoom might help - specifically on trying to get earlier swings. I didn't notice this about zoom before, but I've seen some videos on trying to swing when your batter steps for the best timing. That's pretty hard to do in SZ2 as maybe you see part of their leg if they have a more noticeable stepping motion. In SZ2 its impossible.

I've personally switched to Mlb Show 16 view a few times if im struggling with SZ2. I noticed I can hit pitches that break horizontally such as cutters and sliders a bit better. Also seemed to be able to recognize fastballs a bit better.

One thing that might really help is pitching with that same view you're batting with. It will help you recognize balls faster as well as good pitches to hit.

This is what I have always done. It helps my accuracy in pitching, as well.

I tried that once, and raked. Then tried it again, and couldn't hit a thing. Is it worth trying again? I normally do the default one, I think. Just near where the ump is.
Edit: What pitching view should I use? I normally do the one behind him, the normal one. (At least for me)
Does strike zone help for pitching?

Does anyone think it is worth trying again?

The Show 16 is underrated. Especially for people that can’t catch up to a fastball.

SDS

Retro!!!!

I switched to this one a while back when I was slumping. Helped break me out a bit and I also noticed I was definitely catching up to fastballs.

I am going to try zoom tonight.
