I don’t get why people watch home runs

SDS

Not the people who watch their own home runs. I get that. It’s irritating, but I get it. What I don’t get are the guys that watch their opponents home runs. They give up a huge bomb and crane their neck to watch it go way over the fence. Why do that to yourself?

SDS

Either they don't care or they're just doing it to give themselves a mental break rather than use 20 seconds off of pause timer, idk.

SDS

It's not as rampant as it was before thank god, i did have someone watch one of my homeruns for some reason, i'm guessing they wanted to see how far Machado hit the ball

SDS

Any HR by Trevor Story, or any dong that looks bigger than 480ft ill watch

SDS

If a guy crushes one off me, or he simply beats me and hits one in a big spot, I will replay it. It’s a tip of the cap....

Is Story your favorite player? I can see the favorite player angle. I just played a guy who gave up the three hrs to Griffey and he watched every single one. Didn’t watch any of the other homers I hit, so I wonder if it was just to replay that beautiful swing and follow through

Speaking of tip of the caps, I’ll notice that when a guy really gets fooled on a pitch (which is happening less and less this days), he will tap the bunt button once. Is he collecting him self? Is this a timing mechanism? Or is he tipping his cap to me? I’m old, so I don’t get the subtle language and nuances the kids use in online play these days lol

I’m old too( 40s, so relative to most), but yes. The single bunt flash is a tip of the hat. Multiple , I.e. bunt dancing , is announcing “I am a giant douche”

Yes sir. Trevor Story is da best.

SDS

I do it when the guy hits an absolute bomb, especially if it’s on a dotted pitch. I also just like to see how far they go sometimes.

SDS

I watch opponent’s wall scrapers sometimes if I want to know the exit velo

Will he still be your favorite player when his contract runs out and he signs somewhere else? 😉

I am 39, so we are around the same age, but relative to probably most of the players on here, we are ancient. The next time a kid complains about bunting in this game, we will have to tell them of the bunt home runs on RBI Baseball and MLB Baseball on the NES!

Some HRs are just worth replaying. They fall into 2 categories for me:
1 - Absolute moon shots. If one goes near 500ft I am probably replaying
2 - How the ...... did he hit that. cutter up and away no where near the zone etc.
