Its crazy how often i find myself swinging at ball 4, 5, and 6 trying to keep the count alive and get an actual pitch to hit. I half the time when a strike is thrown its a perfectly dotted slider/changeup on the outside or inside corner or a fastball on the black. Pitch speed =/= difficulty, PITCH LOCATION = DIFFICULTY. Doesnt matter how slow the baseball floats in their, if its in a place thats impossible to be squared up by restricted offline PCI whats the point??
To this, I would add the occasional first pitch fastball down the middle which is guaranteed to be a line out or fly ball right at a fielder if you swing at it with any player who does not have “first pitch swinger” perk.
I can only imagine being new to this game and trying to hit on rookie or veteran this year.
