1. Hit the ball where its thrown at
2. Use the analog stick to decide where u want to hit it at
NOT THIS DAMN GAME!!
Instead, its like playing an updated version of ken griffey jr's slugfest. Timing my rebel ass! I can count how many times i ended up punching the hell of the TV after i hit a good pitch and it ends up being a groundball to 3rd. I have fiddlefaddled with the AI options, so instead of hitting groundballs, im now hitting homeruns all the time. Wow, this is a real fun game. Please, this game is crap and the 07 is probably worse with its now batting format.
