Got only one real question. Whats a good way to be sucessful in the RTTS? I tear it up in AA ball, i get to the AA all star game, i get called up to AAA ball and the manager NEVER plays me so i fail pretty much all the goals and my player falls apart. I ask for trades, or to start games and the guy says im 2nd behind the "hot" hitter. Then THAT guy gets called up and im still benched. PLEASE help!

Is there any codes to get bonus points? that could help you jump start your player. I sugest going to a team with the least depth at you position. I tried to be an Sp with the yanks and go t released from their AA club, then signed with pirates and made it to the big my first year and I am starting in my second. Its really cool!

go to profile and go to rewards and if you have any points buy run faster and you can steal bases which earns you points in rtts.

Exclamation Use the proper strategy for the skill level you are playing on!!!

I sucked until I read the instructions included in the game. It basically tells you that...

On Vetran level if you "guess location" there are only 4 quadrants (High, Inside, Outside, Low).

On All-Star level if you "guess location" there are 9 quadrants (High-Inside, High-Middle, High-Outside, Middle-Inside, Middle, Middle-Outside, Low-Inside, Low-Middle, Low-Outside).

On Hall of Fame level, you basically have to use your yellow circle (swing locator or whatever its called).

I was playing on Vetran level, but I was "guessing location" using the All-Star's 9 quadrants and trying to use the swing locator to get on top of the ball. I couldn't hit anything!!!

As soon as I switched strategy and only "guessed location" for the 4 quadrants and didn't use the swing locator thing at all... I started hitting everything. I'm hitting .400 right now.

It's confusing because they just shouldn't even allow you to use the tools that aren't designed for the skill level you are playing on.

I think I actually would've done better by turning the skill level up, because I was using the strategies for a higher level.

I was wondering if arm strength has anything to do with the velocity the pitcher can throw or if that is just for fielding. If anyone has figured it out please let me knoow.

No it doesnt, its just for fielders. or when you get a ground ball back to the mound it affect your arm strength.

Re: MLB 08: The Show Tips, Achievements, Help, Tricks, Hints, Cheat Codes and Strateg

Are there any other tips that anyone can give for hitting? If I guess the pitch then I can at least get the timing, but by the time I see the location it's too late....

Any advice?

That is un-true.
I increased arm-strength after increasing velocity on my fastball, and my FB went from 91-92, to now hitting 94, so yes it does affect it.
