Mastering Fielding


Fielding is the most crucial aspect of defense. It's how you prevent runs and is the part of the game with which people have the fewest issues because it works well.

Mastering the Art of Defense

One advantage is that you start pitching, so you can immediately showcase your defense. Now, let's talk about the basics of fielding. There's the first baseman, second baseman, shortstop, third baseman, right field, center field, and left field.

When the ball is hit, it goes into slow motion for a split second, placing you near the player who will receive it. It's up to you to field it. For pop flies, catch them; for ground balls, field them and throw to the first baseman, or, as necessary, follow the rules of baseball.

Chase, Catch, and Throw with Precision

You must run over and catch the ball when it's going to the right field. Use stick locomotion, where you utilize both sticks to run. Press the side grips for running.

If you struggle with throwing to the first baseman, such as throwing it too high or missing altogether, check your throwing assist settings. Setting it high can make it easier to throw accurately.

Catching Skills and Impressive Plays

As you improve your fielding skills, you can make impressive plays. You can jump to catch the ball before it hits the fence. However, We recommend only attempting that if you have high ceilings. 

If the ball goes to the second baseman, you move back, wait for it, and catch it. Then throw it back to the pitcher. If fielding is your favorite part of the game, you can execute double plays, such as throwing a ground ball to the third baseman, second base, and first base.

Exciting Plays at the Wall and Accurate Throws

Plays at the wall, where you must jump to catch the ball, are also exciting. These plays can be challenging, but they are incredibly fun to execute. 

With the cannon, you can throw to the first baseman with a powerful throw. However, making accurate throws without the cannon might be more satisfying.

Mastering Batting


The Importance of the Batter's Box

First, you want to be in the batter's box. You want to move into it near home plate. Many players have issues with the ball not going far and hitting the ground. Standing inside the batter’s box will help improve your swing.

The Importance of Controlled Swings

You don't want to do a full hard swing like you're swinging a real baseball bat. If you've played Wii Tennis, you may want to swing it like that. Even with Wii Baseball, you don't want to go full baseball player. You know, you just want to go lightly and give it a nice little swing. You'll slap bass hits all around the field.

Mastering Pitching


Mastering the Strike Zone and Basic Throws

Let's dive into a pitching practice session. First, we have the red batter's box, which is the strike zone where you want to aim your throws. If you're new to pitching and not using the cannon, and you want to learn how to throw, It is recommended that you enter the pitching practice and treat it like a game of catch with someone standing about 10 feet in front of you.

Slow Throws, Hard Throws, and the Art of the Change-up

You can observe the difference between throwing it slowly and throwing it harder in the next pitch to see the accuracy level. Because, you know, it can be like that - the harder you throw, the more inaccurate it becomes. The cool thing is that executing a slow-motion throw like that creates an unofficial change-up. 

Pitching Styles and Techniques

The pitching motion you can try using is sidearm. There are various ways to pitch - some people prefer throwing overhand, while others go for a submarine style, where their hand is almost close to the ground. You need to find a pitching style that suits you. 

Another crucial aspect is finding the release point when gripping and holding the ball. You must let go at the right moment as if throwing a real baseball.

Slow and Steady Wins the Game

I recommend throwing slowly; don't strain your arm attempting a 90-mile-per-hour fastball. Just gently lob it as if you were playing catch with someone. Don't overexert yourself; enjoy the process and keep practicing because that's the only way to improve. We highly recommend entering the pitching practice. As they say, practice makes perfect. So, keep practicing, and you'll become an exceptional pitcher in no time.
