    Plate discipline. Well what I usually tend to do when I need a big hit or something or a clutch at bat is "Guess pitch" fastball.

    Guess fastball, that way if you know it's not a fastball, then there will most likely be some movement on the pitch. If you guess fastball and it looks good, then swing, because it will be good.

    If you guess fastball and you get it wrong, then you have limited your options to most likely a breaking ball or a change up (or like a 2 seem fastball, in that case you just gotta be good). Most breaking balls are easier to read then you think... The rule is, if it looks good early, then it's not. If it looks wild early, it's going to be a strike (unless of course it's so wild that the break makes it even worse, but you'll be able to read that)

    So my advice is, guess fastballl, if it's not a fastball and it looks straight, then it'll be a change up and give you time to read if it's going to be a strike or not. If you guess fastball and it's wrong and you see it's a breaking ball, then take in to consideration if the pitcher is a righty or lefty. Read the break.

    Then when you can master things like that then start working on remembering pitchers tendencies. Ex.. first pitch fastballs, curve ball for his strike out pitch, or throwing away to lefties and what not.

    It just takes some time, but eventually you'll get better.

    (oh yeah, and use the Twins They rock!)
    Working on that now... My main issue is I see it's going to be a ball, but my reflexes still push up on the stick lmao... I've always been an easy strikeout in baseball games since Ken Griffey Jr.'s Winning Run for the SNES I'm getting better and better about it though... Still haven't won a game through the first six of my season, but I'm improving nonetheless. My errors have decreased as well, so as soon as I get going with my plate discipline and other batting issues, I'm good to go.

    I remember my created player fouled off like eight or nine pitches then worked the count to a 3-2 count and got the walk off hit to win the game ... with a double to score the winning run from first ... AWESOME

I ended this game with two hits, no runs 17 strikeouts against. Gave up 10 runs on 15 hits, 9 errors. I was absolutely awful lol.

    Any tips on working on my plate discipline? I know how to work on the errors lol.

    Is there a reason Bryce Harper is not in this game?
