Easier Contact/Distance hitting on Rookie Challenge
Note: This excludes All Star weekend. You can earn a better score for hitting in these drills if you place a pitcher with the least amount of pitches in the #1 slot in your pitching rotation. The fewer the pitches, the more likely you will know what he is going to throw. This works even better if you have a relief pitcher who has all fastball types of pitches, (for example. fastball, 2-seam fastball, cutter). If you know what is coming, you will not have a problem hitting the ball. Make sure the pitchers you wish to use during the game are not on the "bench", otherwise you cannot use them during the game. With this exception, it does not matter what your pitching rotation order is, because you can select them before the start of the game.
