Okay, seriously? This is a ridiculously hard achievement. The achievement states: Get to the top of the Best of the Best ladder in Home Run DerbyŽ Mode

Well, the first 10 batters are easy. Then I get to Mark Teixiera, and he hits about 10 homers a round. Anyone know what ballpark or what player to use? It's really hard. Has anyone tried it?

I don't have the game so I can't say I really understand the premise, but use Josh Hamilton (if you can) and play at the Rangers home park or Coors field. Very shallow parks from what I understand.

I've only made it thru 10 batters so far, but here is a way to do it and make it through.

Goto your rosters, select Atlanta Braves. Then select Chipper Jones. Edit his batting stats to the max.

Then select Homerun Derby. Select Chipper Jones and make the Homerun Derby at Fenway Park. He is a switch hitter, so he will bat left handed. After every 5 batters you beat you will get the option to select another batter to use. Just keep using Chipper.

These are the batters that you will face for this achievement. Before you start, go into Management, then Rosters. Edit each of these players' batting stats for HR against left hand/right hand pitchers to zero. They won't hit any homeruns at all.

1. J. Morneau(Twins)
2. C. Pena(Rays)
3. C. Delgado(Mets)
4. C. Utley(Phillies)
5. E. Longoria(Rays)
6. C. Quentin(White Sox)
7. D. Wright(Mets)
8. V. Guerrero(Angels)
9. J. Hamilton(Rangers)
10. G. Sizemore(Indians)
11. M. Teixeira(Yankees)
12. D. Ortiz(Red Sox)
13. M. Cabrera(Tigers)
14. R. Braun(Brewers)
15. A. Dunn(Nationals)
16. P. Fielder(Brewers)
17. A. Pujols(Cardinals)
18. M. Ramirez(Free Agent, but with Live Roster will be on Dodgers)
19. A. Rodriguez(Yankees)
20. R. Howard(Phillies)

I started this just for laughs with Jay Bruce(CIN) at the All Star stadium. I averaged about 13 HRs a round through the first 6 guys until I got bored of HRD. so I suggest him. He would be in the top 20 guys but he was called up last season and didn't play everyday.

It's not that simple. You start to lose stamina more rapidly as you get higher up and they start hitting more home runs. HAS ANYONE UNLOCKED THIS ACHIEVEMENT? It really is ridiculously hard.

This is such BS. I have changed Chipper Jones sliders to 100 Power Overall and he still can't get past David Ortiz. Please, someone, tell me how to do this damn achievement. It is frustrating me.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one with this problem. I was averaging like 25 homers a round with Pat Burrell, and when I got to Texiera, I totally died. Is there a way to regain stamina?

I've tried taking a couple pitches and it never works. I passed Teixiera finally, but Big Papi hits 3 more than he does the next round. I have no idea how to do this.

Does it HAVE to be Chipper Jones or was that just preferance? Doing what was suggested, it seems that I could do that with just about any player, no? Prince Fielder or Jim Thome would be my two picks if I can choose. If not, Chipper will do. *shrugs*

Actually, this Achievement is worth about 165G because you cannot unlock all Cards without winning the Best of the Best and you also won't unlock Grand Poobah which alone is worth 150!

He is on the Dodgers' Single-A team. I had to hunt him down too. :-)

I personally used one of my created players and edited him to 100 overall in everything and edited everyone else's power numbers to 0, so I can verify that it works for sure.
