Better hitting
Immediately after the pitcher releases the ball, press Start. You will see where the ball is going and if it will be a strike or ball. Resume the game and move your batting cursor over it to get a nice powerful swing. This will help you improve your hitting. Note: You do not need to press Start directly after he lets go of the ball -- it just gives you more time to move your cursor after the game is resumed.

Use the pause technique before batting. When you see where the ball is going, try your best to get the ball as close to the point of the contact triangle (the part closest to the batter, not the thick part of the triangle). you will usually get homeruns or at least doubles.

Wait until the pitcher's arm is in motion and is coming forward, then swing. If it looks like a bad pitch do not swing. This strategy woks most of the time, and works well with players such as Giambi, Bonds, or A-Rod.

Restore pitcher's energy
In season, franchise or expansion mod, go to the DL, and put any pitcher on the15 day DL. Then immediately take him back into your lineup. He will have recovered all his energy.

Credit commentary
Press A during the credits to hear commentary about the person currently featured.

Easy points
You can gain "points" for certain feats performed during a game. An easy way to get a lot of points is to throw a perfect game. This is worth 100 points. Switch controls every time the CPU is up at bat and intentionally strike out. This will get you points for 27 strikeouts, and for a perfect game. Repeat as many times as needed.

To get more points in franchise mode to sign your free agents, during the off season either create a player and pick him up as a free agent or sign free agents and release them at the end of the season.

Easy points in trivia mode
For easy points in any one of the three modes of trivia (classic, home run derby, and speed), when you get a wrong answer, do not continue to the next question. Instead, press B so that the game asks if you want to quit. Then, press B again to remain in the game. After you have done this, press A to go advance to the next question. As a result, the game will give you a single and not penalize you with an out. Note: In home run derby trivia, this method will give you a homerun instead of an out.

Easy runs
Get Barry Bonds to bat in the third spot in the order and play against the Cubs. Take control of the Cubs and start intentionally walking everyone until Barry Bonds is up for the second time. Rotate the hitting icon so it will hit a home run. Make contact and you will hit a grand slam. Repeat this as many times as needed. Note: Do not check the box score after 100 runs or the game will freeze.

Easy wins in a season
Save the game then go to schedule. Simulate the game. If you did not win, return to the main menu and load the season. Repeat this until you win the game.

Control homerun replay
After hitting a homerun, a replay of it will be displayed. When you see your batter heading home from third base, press various buttons to see different angles.

Better pitching
The best pitchers have a pitch called a "Slurve" (for example, Mark Burhele of the Chicago White Sox). Also try the "Dominate Curve" with Pedro.

Better franchise or expansion mode teams
Use trades to get rid of your older less talented players for slightly better players. Even if the CPU rejects your trade, keep trying repeatedly and it is usually eventually accepted. However, make the trade reasonable, such as B- for a B or B+. If the player you really want just does not seem to want to join your team, try trading for another player who is slightly better, then return to that player you want and try again. Do this every season to keep good young players.

Easy cards
Use the following trick to unlock all the cards in one or two games. Once you unlock the Cooperstown Legends and the Pixels, play as the Legends. You will find that within the fifth or sixth inning, every hit equals ten points and possibly more. Constantly hit homeruns and strike out the batters and you should have forty to fifty packs to open after the game. This is the easiest way to complete your card collection and unlock the cheats.

Thom Brennaman's stories
Start a game and allow the controller to remain idel. After a few minutes after they have announced the lineups and the starting pitcher, Thom Brennaman will start telling in-depth stories about baseball.

Designated hitters
In season, expansion or franchise mode, create players then trade them for the person you want. The best created player you can make is a designated hitter. Use the following settings. Note: Only American League teams need designated hitters. If you want someone in the National League, then trade your created designated hitter for a good American League player then trade him for the desired National League player.
