World Series Baseball 2K2 [DC]
Reset the count:
While batting with a runner on any base, have the runner attempt a steal. Either go through with the steal or send him back. Quickly press Y before the view returns to your batter to reset the count to no balls or strikes.
When you are up to bat with a decent power hitter, move the top of the batting cursor to where the ball is being pitched. You will hit a homerun about 90% of the time.
Hint: Easy hit:
Press R trigger before the pitcher makes his selection. When the pitch is thrown, your cursor will become small. If you hit the ball it will either be a home run, or a very hard hit.
Hint: Easy strike out:
When pitching, paint the corners and the batters will not swing, making a easy strike out. It does not matter if it is their hot or cold zone, but you should still pitch it in their cold zone.
If you have two strikes already, pitch a fastball as the first pitch followed by any other pitch. On then the last pitch, throw a curveball low and away.
Hint: Bean the batter:
After you select your pitch, move your cursor towards the batter and press Y.
Hint: Intentional walk:
After you select your pitch, move your cursor away from the batter and press Y.
Hint: Change computer pitched shutouts:
Go to your schedule screen. Press X to get the list of games and start times. When you simulate computer played games, and one of the teams pitches a shutout, you can simulate it again, until both teams score. You can also play games over when you or your opponent are shut out.
Glitch: Score by getting in a run down.
Get someone on first or second base. Before the pitcher goes into his windup, try to advance the runner. The pitcher will throw the ball to the base you are trying to steal. You will now be in a run down. The fielder will chase you back to the bag. Then, as soon as your baserunner goes into the slide animation, press the buttons to advance to the next base. The player with the ball will freeze until you get to the base, then they will throw it to the next base you can steal. Here is a more easy way to explain it:
Runner on 1st.
Try to steal second before the pitcher goes into the windup.
Pitcher will throw it to second basemen, who will then chase you down. Press the buttons to go back to second base.
As soon as you see your baserunner slide, rapidly press the buttons to advance him to second.
The 2nd basemen will throw it to first while you are running to second. The first basemen will hold the ball until you get to the base, then throw it to 3rd. Do the same
Reset the pitch count
This can only be done if you're hitting and have a runner on base. Have the runner steal and do whatever with him, make him steal or go back to his base, but immediately hold down Y before the camera switches back to the batter. If you did it correctly it should show the animation of your batter walking up to the plate and the count will be reset back to 0-0.
