If you think the first base umpire made a bad call, press Y during the replay to argue it. Doing this sends out your manager. It will show your manager walk out of the dugout. A bar will apear near the bottom of the screen that indicates argument intensity. Keep pressing Y as fast as you can to make a real strong argument. However, you will be ejected and the CPU will make all managerial decisions from now on. If you want to argue without being ejected, press Y only a few of times, so that about a one quarter or half of the argument intensity bar is filled.
Select the "Create A Player" option, then enter "Erik Kiss" as a case-sensitive name. The player will have a skinny bat that will break every time and send a little dribbler to the pitcher for a sure out. You also cannot bunt with him; it will just go foul. Additionally, you can use this player to your advantage: Create "Erik Kiss", make his stats all full, then trade him to a rival team. Then, go to "Locate A Created Player", and reduce his stats. Your rival will now have a bad batter on their team.
Select the "Create A Player" option. Create a player named keegan paterson, jacob paterson, or isaiah paterson (case-sensitive). The player will have a very large bat. He will hit a home run or a hard line drive every time you make contact, no matter what his stats.
Creating good players for low pay
When creating a player, leave his bio, equipment, looks, hot zones, and batter tendencies alone. Set all of his batting and fielding stats to zero. Do the same with pitchers, but also make their pitches bad. Then, sign him to a seven year, $300,000 deal to the MLB. Then, edit their stats and make them perfect. This works for Owner mode. When their contracts are up, release them and make new players. You can make them look however desired and give them whatever bio you want. Try making them born from July on in 1987 or the year that they turn 17.
Easy grand slam
Trade all fast players like O. Cabrera, Ichiro, and Carlos Beltran to one team. Create the "jacob paterson" player and sign him. Then, put the fast players as the first three hitters and the slugger as the number four batter. Have the first three players bunt. While this happens, take control of the other team so they cannot throw the ball. All of the fast players will be on base and the slugger will be up. Most of the time he will hit a grand slam.
Easy Homerun Showdown win
When the pitch is coming in, hold Analog-stick Up and time it well. You will almost always hit a homerun.
When you are about to throw the ball, hold the button down until you get to the red. Let go, then hit the green. Your pitches will be faster.
Getting good players
To get a good player in Dynasty or Owner mode, create a player and make him very bad. Then, put him in the free agents and sign him to a seven year $700,000 contract. Then, edit him to be the best ever. You will save money and he will not complain about his contract.
Getting money in owner mode
If people are not attending your games, you will have difficulty making money. Make sure the Fan Happiness meter is high and you schedule Promotional Days occasionally to keep people coming out to the ballpark.
Use the following tricks to earn money in owner mode. Note: Save the game early and often. Also be patient, as this may take awhile:
Select a team that is championship caliber. You will make more money by hosting big games. For example, good teams like Chicago, Boston, New York, or St. Louis. You will make somewhere about $500,000 for each playoff game.
Turn off injuries, suspensions, and computer trades. This makes simulating a whole season much faster.
Use the money that is initially in your bank to purchase merchandise stands and concessions. The more revenue you stream in, the more chance you have to gain money in the future. Spend all your starting money (remember promotion days) quickly, as you will go into the negatives quickly.
Never let your team have a losing year. That is the easiest way to get into a huge hole. In fact, make sure you go deep into the playoffs in the first few years.
Keep your ticket prices at default for the unimportant games early in the season; perhaps even lower them a bit early in the season to get people through the door. In crucial September games and the playoffs, raise them to a reasonably high level. Fan satisfaction is higher then, and they are willing to pay more.
After the postseason, spend all the money that you have earned on ballpark upgrades (mostly seating capacity). The more seats, the more money you will earn.
Turn off fair trades. Check your rosters after the first few seasons to get rid of old overpriced players for cheap youngsters. You can even edit young 20 to 22 year olds in rosters.
