http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/-5rz5A==.jpgUnhittable (30 points)
Don't give up any hits in a game

Pick a team (I will be using the Yankees).

Step One:
Go to Rosters.
Go to the Yankees.
Go to all of the hitters, I mean all of them.
Edit These Stats:
-Everything under hitting to max
-Everything under fielding to max
Go to all of the pitchers
Go to the last pitcher on the list and click trade to team.
Go to the Giants and trade for Linecum.
Edit These Stats for Linecum and Sabathia:
-All pitching at max
-All hitting at max

Step Two:
Go to Rosters.
Go to the Pirates.
Go to all of the hitters, I mean all of them too. Really all of them.
Edit These Stats:
-Everything under hitting to minimal.
-Everything under fielding to minimal.

Step Three:
Go to Difficulty.
Go to Hitting.
Change These:
-Everything under 'human' to max
-Everything under 'cpu' to minimum
Go to Fielding/Running/etc.
Change These:
-Everything under 'human' to max, except Field Errors, put this at zero
-Everything under 'cpu' to minimum, except Field Errors, put this at max

Step Four:
Go to Management
Go to Create Player
Press Start
--Achievement Unlocked
Your stats should be 100% perfect to work on alot of achievements.
Go to Play Now.
Pick the away team as the Yankees, home team as the Pirates.
Press Y to edit options.
-Change the innings to 9, field to Wrigley
Now while it is loading make sure Linecum is not the starting pitcher.
Now start the game.

Step Five:
Top of Inning One::
Hit as many homers as you can. The pitcher's stats for the Pirates needs to stay at normal, it is easier to hit homers, trust me.
If you did not hit a sure homerun stay on 3rd base.
From here do the following.
-Press LT a few times to lead off of third
-Once you start the stealing process run towards home
-Let the catcher get the ball
-Press the RS towards the catcher, knocking him over. This may take a few tries
--Achievement Unlocked,
With the last hitter up in the lineup press start on the controller.
Go to Substitutions
Click Pinch Hitter
Change the hitter to Linecum.
Hit a home run with Linecum. Must be out of the park. If it is in the park run fast. The other team can not touch the ball before you cross home plate for it to count as a home run.
--Achievement Unlocked
Keep hitting homers
By now you should have alot of runs.
Once you hit 15 runs start hitting more home runs.
If you do not hit a home run, stay on first/second and steal.
Bottom of the First Inning::
Now you are a pitcher.
Pitch with Sabathia, its easier.
Throw sliders (X button), Sabathia almost 75% of the time will strike him out.
If the ball is hit in the air, catch it. Your stats are at max.

Repeat the Inning above the whole game.

Some of these will take more than one game, but you can get a majority of these in one game. I was able to get 50 homeruns, 30 steals in one game. Played the season for the achievements and got the 100 homeruns, 50 steals.

All of the ...with your user profile... achievements unlock after the game and after your profile saves. Make sure after every game you play that you save your profile, other wise the games wont count.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/+WIFPw==.jpgThere can be only one (20 points)
Win the World Series® in Franchise mode (play at least 20 games)

These achievements are time consuming. The easiest way to do these is to set the game up on:

Custom Rosters
Custom Stats
Settings -> Presentation Settings -> Replays - Never, Fast Baseball - On
3 innings
No Fatigue
No Injuries

Then you must play 20 regular season games. Win or lose. Do not sim the whole season, sim to the last day of the season. Then play the final game. Then once playoff season comes, sim/play up to the World Series. Sim game by game until you are up 3 games to whatever. Now play one more game and win. All of the season achievements will unlock.

You must play the final World Series game to get all of these achievements.

To check how far you are on each achievement go to:
MLB.com -> Statistics -> Player Stats -> HR/Runs/Ks/Saves

Easy Strike Outs: Have one of your pitchers pitch the most games. I simmed for this achievement. When I actually played the twenty games I didnt go for the strikeout achievement. I ended the season with 278 strikeouts.

Easy Home Runs/Runs: In the twenty games you actually play, play against easy opponents. Do not try and play against the Yankees in season mode and expect to get a bunch of home runs. But playing against the Pirates will grant you alot of home runs.

Easy Saves: Have all but one of your pitchers crappy. Never start the good pitcher. That way he will come into the game late and 'save' it for you. Or out of the twenty games you actually play have a relief pitcher come into the game at the top of the ninth.

Another Easy Save Method: Play your twenty games for the first twenty. Then sim to the trade deadline. Go to the stats and order it so it shows who has the most saves. Trade your best pitcher for this player. Then save your game. Now sim till the end of the season. Keep doing this until the person has 40 saves. Then play the World Series game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/+0MMig==.jpgIf you build it... (5 points)
Create a Card Team

Go to Cards.
Click Create A Team.
Create a team using cards.
This achievement can be done from the start. They give you just enough starter cards to make a team.
Achievement Unlocked.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/+qP0GQ==.jpgSpring Training (5 points)
Try all 4 Practice Modes

Play all 4 of the practice modes to get this achievement. Practice modes teach you the basic setup of the game. Practice is located under Spring Training.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/+YTgFw==.jpgKing of the Hill (5 points)
Get to the top of the Best of the Best ladder in Home Run Derby® Mode

This is a long achievement for 5 points. You have to beat all 20 Best of the Best players. The first 10 are easy and go by fast. After that they get greater and greater. This can take hours. Just keep hitting homers and hope they fail.

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)

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)

Thanks to Tripl299 for this tip.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/+GQYhA==.jpgAlone at the top (5 points)
Win the World Series® in Postseason Mode (Play Final Game)

For this you must win the World Series in Postseason Mode, which is under Game Modes. So sim/play to the final game and play the final game all the way through, winning of course. Can be done on 3 innings.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/+9r1RQ==.jpgTeam 2K (60 points)
Beat a Team 2K member or someone that has unlocked this achievement in an online game

How this will work is: The 2K Member loses, the winner gets this achievement. Now whoever beats the guy with the achievement will get the achievement. Then whoever beats these players will get the achievement. This will keep going on and on like a virus.

The achievement is now spreading around. Try posting in the achievement trading thread to have someone lose a game to you.

Thanks to everyone who spent their own time to give this achievement out. This achievement is spreading like crazy.

Unlock all 320 Cards

There are 320 different cards in this game. To unlock cards you must play on Pro. For each card you have different requirements. You can click on each card and see the description on how to get it. There is no card trading in this game so you have to do them all.

A basic card definition will be:

Get x amount of runs with this player

or

Get x amount of strike outs on this player

Here is a guide made by dreamweaver1984 (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=131871)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/s1.jpgHard Knocks (5 points)
Hit three batters in a row

Pick a team and play as the home team. Now hold left or right, towards the batter, on the LS. Then press a button to pitch. It will hit the player. Repeat two more times.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/s2.jpgVicious Cycle (50 points)
Hit a Home Run, a Triple, a Double and a Single in one game with one player

See ‘Unhittable’ for more information.

Drive in a run with a pitcher during a game

See ‘Unhittable’ for more information.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/s5.jpgThat's all folks (50 points)
Hit a home run to win a game

Keep the game close. Start the final inning and pitch them out. Now if the game is tied or you are behind its better. Now hit the ball as hard as you can. If it isn’t a homerun, stay on 1st. Repeat until you get a homerun.

This can be done on 3 innings. Inside the park homeruns count for this.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/s6.jpgUntouchable (50 points)
Throw a No Hitter with one pitcher in a game

This can not be done on 3 innings.

Easy Method: Save after every inning. If you screw up, load up the save. Keep going until you get the achievement.

See ‘Unhittable’ for more information.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/s7.jpgYa Can't Get fooled Again (50 points)
Strike out a batter and throw out a runner on the same play

For this you need to set the CPU stats for Steal Agression to max. Then walk someone to first base. Now pitch two strikes.

Here is the tricky part:

Throw a low strike to the hitter. Then with the catcher press Y as fast as you can. Hopefully you can catch someone stealing. If not rinse and repeat.

This achievement can be boosted online with a partner.

its a decent guide, but the whole (x) button for C.C isn't working for me... is there any trick to strikeouts? I have 575 in the game right now. Plus a better description of HOW TO get cards would be cool. Like can I play my maxed team over and over and get all cards or do I have to start playing all the other teams? Plus still need an online buddy to get (strikeout/throwout) anyone interested hit me up

Sliders are what I use for strikeouts. Most of the time it strikes them out easily. Of course you will need to move around the LS so it isnt the same pitch over and over. They do get smarter after awhile.

For the cards. Yes you can use your team. Check the card description for the card you are going for. Most of the time it will say:

Get x amount of runs with this player

or

Get x amount of strike outs on this player


All cards must be done on Pro

EDIT: Added the above to the guide.

This guide is really good.

I have a great detail of the "King of the Hill" achievement in a thread here.

As for cards, you can change players to the team u are using and the team that you are playing against to get them. In one game I got like almost 20 cards. For example, the catcher from the A's you only have to get 1 hit with for the card, but the back up catcher for the giants needs 2 hits, so put them both on your team, once you get the hit with the A's catcher, sub in the other catcher(by the way he is really a 3rd baseman, but is 100 in catcher also.). That will give you 2 cards in 1 batting slot. The Brave's 2nd baseman(Johnson) only needs 1 stolen base and the 2nd baseman(Kendrick) from the Angels only needs to score a run. So what you do is make the Johnson your lead-off. Get a hit, but keep him on first. Then steal 2nd base. Then pinch run and put in Kendrick. Now just score a run with him. If anybody needs any help understanding this, hit me up on live.

I have found for most of the pitcher cards, it's best to do it against them. Like the ones where you have to pitch 7 perfect innings in a row. Kinda hard.

Side note: I found that it is easier to use "Total Control" for pitching instead of "Classic". I know that last year it was the other way around.

You might want to note that in order to get all the classic player cards...you will need a total of 500 RBI, 500 Strikeouts, and 500 Homeruns. Each player requires X amount of one of these like you said in your guide, but to get all of them you will end up needing 500 of each of the above mentioned.

You might want to post that while going for the InSeason achievements to work on the cards. Basically what i'm doing is starting a season and working against the BlueJays and play 1 game of that series and get most if not all of the cards versus them and then simulate the rest of the series and move on.

On your team your best option is to start off with whatever team and once you unlock certain players after a game trade them right after that game for another card that you do not need and work on them. I'm 35 games in right now and i have 183 cards.

Has anyone unlocked the "Ya Can't Get fooled Again " achievement and can they confirm that what's written in the guide is what has to be done to unlock it? Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but what's written in the guide is neither a Strike-Out/Throw-Out, nor is that description done in one play.

The achievement is a weird one. I went by what I read somewhere else and took basis off of that. I cant figure out what it is supposed to be to get. A strike out is easy. But throw out isnt.

UPDATE:

The guide was updated with a tip from Tripl299 regarding King of the Hill

UPDATE 2:

You can get win the game with a homerun on 3 innings.

A Strike-Out/Throw-Out would be if there's less than two outs with a runner on first and two strikes on the batter. With the runner trying to steal second, throw strike three to the batter and then throw out the runner.

I tried it with two controllers and it didn't unlock. I can't get the computer to try and steal second enough to try it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/912/s3.jpgThis old man came rolling home (50 points)

If you did not hit a sure homerun stay on 3rd base.
From here do the following.
-Press LT a few times to lead off of third
-Once you start the stealing process run towards home
-Let the catcher get the ball
-Press the RS towards the catcher, knocking him over. This may take a few tries
--Achievement Unlocked,


I found a much easier way, imo, to do this. Following your guide, I realised I sucked when trying to get my runner to attempt to bulldose the catcher. So what I did was I did a double steal. I had runners on 1st and 3rd and at first took off with my runner towards 2nd. When the catcher went for the bait, I then had my runner on 3rd successfully steal home without a play there and the achievement unlocked upon crossing home plate.

Does anyone have any tips on steals? I'm having a difficult time getting my runner to steal at all. He either doesnt steal in time and gets thrown out because of the late jump after the pitch is already at home or i cue him to steal and the pitcher catchs him and throws it to 2nd and i'm caught in a pickle.

Tap the LT multiple times. then when the steal begins run hard towards the next base. If tv pitcher catches you. Press RT. Then they will throw it bavkbto first. Then run back to Second. Keep doing thinuntil you have the steal.

Get a lead and then the moment you see the strike zone box go away, press LT and he'll take off without getting picked off by the pitcher and it'll be up to whether or not he's a fast runner and not get thrown out by the catcher.

You can get this pretty easily playing the game. Just get as far of a lead as possible with a player like Ichiro and just time your jump right so the pitcher does not pick you off. If you successfully get the right jump without him catching you and he pitches you can steal home no problem. I've done it 3 times with Ichiro. But getting a good jump without being caught is tough.

Ichiro on first or third, and I can't get this with 2 controllers correct unless it is in a ranked match, correct?

You can't get that achievement that way. It's not considered "Stealing home" you have to slide and not knock over the catcher. I tried this a few times with David Ortiz and knocked the ball 2 times and never got it either. Try the Ichiro method.

Steal 2nd but not home when you've got runners on 1st and 3rd. As soon as the catcher throws to 2nd to try and get the runner, THEN switch to your guy at 3rd and run home.

Yeah that's what I'm trying and my guy on third is either not fast enough or he only knocks the catcher over, but I don't get the achievement. I guess I'll just have to ask somebody to be a nice guy in a ranked game.

what worked for me on stealing home was i accidentally broke for home early, i believe i then hit retreat or stop ( not sure if that's even possible) for a quick sec. because it drew a throw from the pitcher to third, by then my runner was headed for home and with the slow relay from the third basemen and my 99 speed i scored easy...unsure if it was luck or not because i haven't tried stealing home since unlocking the achievement..

One thing you may want to do is adjust the ratings of your players to make the faster and/or adjust the sliders in your favor, and lastly, adjust the ratings of the catcher to make him a horrible thrower :)

I got strike 'em out, throw 'em out and stealing home achievements boosting online with a friend. We would time it out perfectly right so that we would wind up in the same match together (works better if you try this late at night or early early morning). This is your easiest, best bet in trying to get this achievement. I got all the major hard achievements this way. The only ones I am missing now are the franchise achievements, 2K Team achievement and the cards achievement.

If you're smart, when you get paired up in a game with someone, just ask them nicely if they are interested in helping you get the achievements as long as you let them win. Something along those lines. Send them a message, invite them to a private chat, do something to get them to help you out.

As far as me, if you need help boosting online, add my GT: SilverSluggerMZ. I know just about the right technique to connect us into a RANKED match together. I will let you get any achievements you need, as long as you help me out in receiving the trading cards.

Easiest way to get the stealing home achievement: Go into the difficulty sliders and turn the pitch speed down to zero. Then just get on 3rd and take a huge lead and steal before the pitcher tries to throw home and he will pitch the ball home but it will be extremely slow and you should be able to slide in without getting tagged out. I had already adjusted my players' ratings so this was with a 100 speed guy also. But I got it on the first try.

This helps for the other stealing achievements as well since it will be longer before the catcher gets the ball so harder for him to throw you out. It also makes it harder to time hits, but you can find a balance between slow pitch speed for stealing and hittability(?) after you have the steal home achievement.

Also, for anyone who hasn't quite figured out how to steal yet, you hold down the left trigger once you have the lead you want. The controller will vibrate once to let you know you have a steal queued up. Then when you left off the trigger, your guy will take off. It took me a while of trying to just press the trigger a bunch of times before I figured this out.

This is false. You tap the left trigger to gain a lead. Keep tapping until you have the lead you want. Once you have the lead you want, you hold down LT to advance one final step and the controller will let you know that you are going to steal once it has vibrated. Let go once the pitcher goes into his windup.

I'm still having trouble with a few of these achievements. The stealing home one won't unlock even though I've done it using the "plow the catcher" and "double steal" methods. I ran J. Ellsbury from third after the runner at first was almost to second, Ellsbury is called safe at home after sliding in, not tackling, but no achievement.

Then I hit an in the park home run with Lincecum, also bringing in a runner, but neither of those achievements popped.

I changed all the sliders just as specified in the guide. Any other ideas on what I'm doing wrong? This was in a playball match.

Meet a buddy online in a quick card battle...let him get on 1st base. Get 2 stikes on the next batter. Have him steal as you throw a stike and strike him out. Make sure u tag out the runner before he gets to 2nd...have him run back to first and than to 2nd to make sure u get the out. Easy.

Try this: Lower the stats on the team you want to beat up on. Make sure the fielding for all players are 0. What I did was I went to steal home and immediately hit the RT button to run back to third. The catcher then threw the ball into left field, I went home and it unlocked the achievement. But even if the ball doesn't get thrown away with the diminished stats you should be able to have a point where a player will throw the ball wide during the pickle.

Yes, that is correct you DO NOT have to hit the ball out of the park with Lincecum to get the Man Crush Achievement. However, so many people neglect to watch the outfielders when a ball is hit to them - if the outfielder juggles the ball and drops it and picks it up, while you're booking it around the bases, that is NOT considered an inside the park homerun - that is a double with a 2 base error (if you're unsure, look at the box score at the end of the game).

yeah, the very first game I played after buying MLB 2k9 i did the 2 controller method and did most of the single game achs and NONE POPPED UP - but, remember there are other ways around it - max out your players' individual attributes and then completely lower the opposing teams attributes - except for ONE - do not lower the catching attribute for any of the opposing fielders - otherwise, you will see a boatload of errors from the opposing outfielders (dropping/bobbling ball when trying to pick it up) which will result in what would be inside-the-park HRs instead be doubles with 2-base errors

I turned errors all the way up for them and their stats all the way down. If you hit it far enough they suck so bad to not get the ball. With errors so bad they run right over the ball on the ground and drop it when they pick it up.

yeah, that's what I was saying if they drop it when they pick it up then instead of a potential inside park HR, then you only get a double with 2 base error - I found simply lower all the fielding attributes to 0 except for catching will produce same effect - they're slow to get to ball, horrible throwers, but will NEVER do that "pick up/drop ball" error...:)

When do 'card' achievements unlock?
They unlock at the end of the game that you play that you accomplish the actual achievement - the only iffy one is the getting one from each of the 30 teams - there's been postings that it's glitchy, and I experienced it myself. However, I was going for all cards anyway, so I knew (or hoped) that it would come eventually, which it did.

The achievement is a weird one. I went by what I read somewhere else and took basis off of that. I cant figure out what it is supposed to be to get. A strike out is easy. But throw out isnt.

UPDATE:

The guide was updated with a tip from Tripl299 regarding King of the Hill

UPDATE 2:

You can get win the game with a homerun on 3 innings.
I tried to get this and homer with Lincecum. I hit a walk off but no achievement.

Want to add in a couple things I noticed really quick...

For Man-Crush I got it from an Inside-The-Park like many else, just need to make sure the CPU doesn't make an error.

For the Home Run Derby, I think as you move up, your own homerun hitting skills get nerfed... I was constantly hitting 35 plus in the first part, with outs only coming after my stamina was gone on the second part (after you get a chance to change your palyer) I am now hitting 25 average with outs coming whenever they feel like it, usually starting when I get down to 1/4 stamina. Its rigged I'll have half stamina and make solid contact, and still get 3 outs in a row.... If you are having trouble with that, just make all other players involved stats to 0 shouldn't be a problem after that.

Finally just stole home. I think I may have found a glitch, I had Andruw Jones and Jared Sattalamachi on 3rd and 2nd respectively and hit lb twice and once the pitcher actually pitched I had them double steal and the catcher just stood there with the ball.

Edit: Everytime I try it now it works.

If anybody is still having trouble to steal home I think this will be a big help.

You can use 2 controllers to quickly get the 100 strikeouts with your user profile. Sucked because I had about 60 strikeouts, then played a game online, and it overwrote my stats in the VIP Viewer, and showed only 11 strikeouts, so be warned NOT to play online until you get the 100 strikeouts offline, just thought I'd let some peeps know so they don't make the same mistake.:uzi::eek:

Very useful guide, thanks a lot. Especially the list of the 20 players for the king of the hill one, much easier just hitting 1 homer then swinging and missing the rest of the way, could only imagine how long it would take to beat them all without editing their stats, especially only for 5 measly points.:uzi::eek:

If you are having problems getting achievements or trading cards for home runs and nobody online wants to help boost with you, I have found an easier solution to get them.

All you simply have to do is to have start up an exhibition game or a franchise game(if you are trying for the franchise specific achievements) and edit your lineup so that all your batters or as many as you can get, are switch hitters. Then simply, when you are at-bat, PRESS THE BACK BUTTON(the button opposite the start button and to the left of the big guide button in the middle). Doing this will have your batter switch from whatever side they were batting to the other side. This will which ever outfielder you weren't facing (EX: left-hand hitter to the right fielder, vice-versa) unaware of the move. Then when the ball is hit to that fielder who was unaware of the move, the fielder will just simply stand there and not move. Therefore, you can get a single, double, triple, and the inside the park homerun. This is not a hack or hex or anything like that, this is just a glitch in the game that 2K never noticed. Doing this can help you get the following achievements:

http://card.mygamercard.net/geothermal/bladeMDP.png (http://profile.mygamercard.net/bladeMDP)


That is NOT TRUE i used 2 controllers for almost every achievement. This is how you do it. Load the game with 2 controllers make sure its on pro diffuclty this works for cards AND achievements. If your going for something like 100 hrs on your user profile sit there hit 100 hrs against the 2nd controller then save and quit the game UNPLUG CONTROLLER 2, reload hit the 101st hr against the comp boom achievement unlocked, this works for franchise achievments as well i got the save achievement this way with ease.

To get the cards:

For example, lets use howie kendrick of the angels. You need either score 1 run or 1k. Using the two controllers either get him to third or get two strikes on him. Then save and quit the game, unplug the controller, reload the game get the third strike or drive him in from 3rd card is yours.

or

Sometimes if you just get the card requirements say the requirement is get 4rbi. Do it against the 2nd controller. The next time the guy comes up you need save and quit. Keep reloading till you get the hit that will award the rbi and you will get the card. So example: Vlad needs 4 rbi's you got 4 vs the 2nd controller. Vlad comes up in the lineup now save and quit unplug the 2nd controller then reload and get 1 rbi vs the cpu and u will get the card for the 4 rbis.

So the trick is this either set yourself up with the situation and save and quit OR achieve the card vs the second controller, save and quit, then get 1 of whatever u need and you will get the card.

Id like to thank YoustayCla55y for showing me this method it is MUCH easier and less time consuming to get 1k in this game using this two controller method.

Yes, but when you get to the last inning and the third out, you have to Save & Quit and then get the last out against the computer for them to count.

But still you can zoom through the 20 games that way.

That was good stuff there.

Anyways regarding the Man Crush achievement....

I remember that when I hit the in-the-park homer than Linecum hit home before the guy even got to the ball. That may have something to do with it.

EDIT:

Oh my god I feel stupid...

It wasnt even the Linecum achievement that I got the in the park for. It was the win a game with an in the park homer. Stupid me.

Yes the Linecum has to be out of the park.

I feel like shooting myself.

Sorry to everyone who I mislead.

Actually, I got "Man Crush" with an inside-the-park home run. The only reason it will not unlock is if the fielders commit an error. So if you can run around the bags without ANY fielder bobbling the ball then you're okay! :)

03-10-2010, 11:14 PM
Okay, good to know. So absolutely no two controllers at all.

2 Controllers CAN be used. You just need to switch the 2nd contoller back to the comp. and TURN OFF THE CONTROLLER just before the game ending or just before doing the action you need for the achievement.

I got "Ya can't get fooled again" this way.

With 2 controls put one player on first base, give the batter 2 strikes, hold LT to que the steal on the 2nd control, while still holding LT perss start and go to options> choose sides, switch 2nd control to the middle, turn off the control.
When a pitch is thrown the now AI runner at 1st will steal 100% of the time.
