Let's Get Started
One of the first things you need to realize that will make this whole mode way less of a headache, you are just [...More

MLB 11: The Show Pitching [ Guide ]
Just like the hitting, MLB 11: The Shows Pure Analog controls bring a new way to pitch as well, and we're here to make it so you adopt this new way like a pro.
Naturally your first step will be to select a pitch. There is a small meter above the pitch type that indicates the pitcher's overall ability to throw it, based on his ratings and his success in the current game. Obviously, the more a meter is filled, the better. Low-rated pitches are less effective but for the sake of keeping your opponent guessing, you should use them [...More

MLB 10: The Show
Another year has passed and it's time for another Major League Baseball title. Only time will tell whether MLB 10: The Show can live up to the high standards set by the 2009 edition from the same franchise.
