Easy extra base hits

To get easy extra base hits, adjust the following AI settings.

AI Outfielder Speed - Move the slider to the left
AI Outfield Reaction Speed - Move the slider to the left

You will get easy extra base hits every time the ball goes into the gap because it will take the outfielders a long time to get to the ball before throwing it back in. This is recommendedt for unlocking cards for players who need multiple base hits (for example, Mike Piazza and Johnny Estrada), total bases (for example, Matt Holiday and Brian McCann) and hitting for the cycle (for example, Hanley Ramirez, Todd Helton, Mark Ellis). You will also hit more inside the park homeruns, especially if you play in a park with quirky dimensions or a deep center field (for example, AT&T Park and Dolphins Stadium). Getting an inside the park homerun will count towards unlocking cards, including those for the two pitchers, Carlos Zambrano and Micah Owings.

Jon Garland (L.A. Angels version) hint

You must complete the season with Garland leading the league in victories. To have him easily earn wins, try the following trick. In order for a starting pitcher to earn a victory, he must pitch at least five innings in a nine inning game (or four innings if you are playing a seven inning shortened game). Whether you a playing or managing the game and are winning, let your regular starter get two outs in the fifth inning (in a nine inning game) or two outs in the fourth inning (in a seven inning game), then bring in Garland. Even if he only gets one out and your team keeps the lead, he will qualify for the win. To be safe, you may want to let him pitch a full inning, but he will qualify by just getting one out. Do this throughout the season to let Garland rack up the wins and take a huge lead. In order to get the card you must play at least fifteen games in your season.

Unlocking cards hints

-To acquire the card for uniform that requires you to defeat a team using a Single A club (for example, the '83 New York Mets), adjust your rosters by sending all the major league players down to Single A. Then, when playing an exhibition game, adjust the lineup of the team you are playing to sit star players on the bench, put people out of position, and start a reliever. You will then be able to easily defeat the team in a seven inning game under the rookie level and unlock the card. You can unlock more cards at the same time by using a team that you have not earned cards for as your Single A team and earn some of those cards as well.

-Use the following for unlocking cards that require defense.

Infield assists
The position your player is playing is irrelevant; just that they accomplish the feat. If you are getting plenty of ground balls to short, move your third baseman (for example, Scott Rolen, Eric Chavez, Joe Crede) to shortstop to get the defensive assists. If there is a hard hit grounder or a slow runner, consider an extra throw to second (for example, 4-6-3) before going to first base to get an extra assist for your fielder.

Putouts
If the card requires put outs (for example, Ronnie Belliard or Adam Kennedy), play them at first base. Every ground out to is a put out and you will unlock it quickly.
Outfield diving/jumping: Considering moving your outfielders who need to make diving catches (for example, Aaron Rowand, Vernon Wells, Mike Cameron) to right or left field if more balls are being hit there to give yourself more opportunities to attempt these catches

Outfield assists

For outfielders who require assists (for example, Jeff Francoeur or Pat Burrell), try playing them in right field and go for the 9-3 putout at first. Note: You can also play Pat Burrell at third base and still get the Pat Burrell card.

-Use the following for unlocking cards with winning percentage average.

Jerseys
Several jerseys require you to come back after your winning percentage average drops below a certain percentage. To achieve this easily, start off as the home team. Allow the visitors to score one or two runs early (preferably with no outs) and your percentage should drop quickly. Pause the game and check the "Game Summary" then "WPA Stats" option to see where your percentage stands. Finish the inning then work your comeback.

Player of the game
The player of the game is dependent on who has the best winning percentage average. It does not matter if a player goes 5-5 with three HRs; if they are not doing it when it counts they will not get player of the game. Get big hits that give you the lead or makes a close game out of reach. You can check out winning percentage average throughout the game by pausing game play and selecting "Game Summary" then "WPA Stats". Scroll over to see the current winning percentage average of each individual player. If someone else currently has a higher percentage and is keeping your desired player from being named player of the game, have them fail in a clutch situation and their winning percentage average will go down.

WPA cards
Some players (for example, Paul LoDuca, Mark Teahen, and Hank Blalock) require high winning percentage average to unlock their card. As mentioned previously, big hits in clutch situations will give them high winning percentage averages. Consider keeping them on the bench until they can get a big hit and an RBI that unties a game or puts you ahead when youare behind. Walk-offs are great for this.

-To unlock the cards for drawing walks (for example, J.D. Drew (2), Bobby Abreau, Brian Giles, Nick Johnson, Marlon Byrd), adjust the AI Pitching Difficulty in your game settings as follows.

AI Corner - Move the slider all the way to the right. By doing this, the pitcher is trying to paint the corners and is more likely to miss.
AI Throw Strike Overall - Move the slider to the left.
AI Throw Strike Ahead - Move the slider to the left.
AI Throw Strike Behind - Move the slider to the left.

This will not guarantee that they will draw a walk right away. However, it is almost impossible to draw a walk when the sliders are at their default settings, even under the Rookie difficulty. Just take all the pitches and usually at some point within your four at bats in a game you will get the walk.

-For any pitcher who just needs to earn a save to unlock the card (for example, Jose Valverde, Joe Borowski, David Weathers, etc.), play a nine inning game and let them throw the last three innings. The Major League Baseball rule is that any pitcher who throws the last three innings are given a save, and that applies in this game as well. This is different from pitchers who are required to earn a save without giving up a hit (for example Billy Wagner). Make sure you know the stipulations for earning the card before putting your reliever in the game.

"A Day To Remember" achievement hint

You must throw a no-hitter using any number of pitchers (minimum nine innings, Pro difficulty or higher). To have a better chance of achieving this, do the following: start by adjusting the "Difficulty" tab to "Pro", then go to "AI Batting" and adjust the following all the way to the right: "AI Take Strike Overall", " AI Take Strike Ahead", and "AI Take Strike Behind". This will cause the CPU to watch many strike threes. Next, adjust the following all the way to the left: "AI Take Ball Overall", "AI Take Ball Ahead", and "AI Take Ball Behind". This will cause the CPU to swing at borderline, slightly off the strike zone pitches. Next, adjust the following to the left "AI Skill", "AI Contact", and "AI Power". This will cause the CPU to hit the ball weakly, if they make contact at all. Finally, go the the "Human" tab and adjust the following all the way to the right: "Infielder Speed", "Outfielder Speed", "Infielder Reaction Speed", and "Outfielder Reaction Speed". With the contact and power of the CPU all the way down, if they hit the ball, they may either weak flares to the outfield and having the your speed up will help catch a few balls that may drop in. Also, infielders or outfielders sometimes run in the opposite direction of a batted ball. This allows you to recover and get some grounders or fly balls that may sometimes sneak through or drop in. Once all the adjustments have been make, check the original tab that read "Pro" and make sure it is now "Custom-P." Since you need to be on at least Pro to get the achievement, Custom-P(ro) is acceptable and will allow you to earn it. When pitching to the CPU, stay on the inside and close to the corners. Pitches on the outside corner tend to be hit up the middle for hits. You will improve your odds by pitching inside.
