Choose Boardwalk as your home field, then make a player with 6 on Power, 2 on Contact, 3 on Pitching, 3 on Running, and 1 on Defense. Make him or her left-handed. Name him or her as desired. Bat him or her at the third spot on your lineup. If your first game is at your home field, he or she will most likely hit a home run. If he or she gets a certificate, put the ball on the Power.
-First, throw a screwball to the left of the K Zone (the yellow box), and a little outside. After that, throw a curveball to the right of the K Zone, and a little outside again. Finally, throw either a fastball or a changeup inside. The batter will either hit a weak grounder or strike out. Note: This was only done in easy mode with Eric Gagne.
-Throw a screwball to the lower right-hand corner, then throw a curveball to the lower-left hand corner. Finally, throw a fastball or chang eup inside.
