Introduction:
Knock a curveball out of the ballpark with MLB® Bobblehead Battle! This MLB® bobblehead challenge features all of your favorite teams and players with a unique twist – it’s entirely focused on batting! Create customized fields with various obstacles such as walls and slopes while outsmarting your opponent with a dynamic card system that allows customization of players and more.


Step One:
Your first step is to invite a friend. This can be done from the Xbox Live menu and doing this will unlock ‘Invitation’.


Step Two:
Next step will be to complete Challenge mode. I suggest using the New York Yankees. Beating all 30 Teams will unlock ‘King’, ‘Collector’, ‘20th anniversary’ and ‘5th anniversary’.


Step Three:
Next step will be to customize a stadium and win a game in that customized stadium. This will unlock ‘Designer’ and ‘Home sweet home’.


Mop up:
Now is the time to use any cards you have yet to use for ‘Meister’. As well as land a ball on any score plates that you have yet to unlock for ‘DOUBLE plate’, ‘TRIPLE plate’, ‘HOME RUN plate’ and ‘SAC FLY plate’.


Conclusion:
You can easily obtain most of the Achievements in the game, however Collector and Meister will take some time as some of the challenges to unlock cards can be quite tough.

Single-Player (Offline) Achievements (11):

20th Anniversary - 10
Play 20 games in an offline game mode

Simply Play 20 games in either Quick Game, Exhibition or Challenge Mode.

*Note: In Exhibition mode, you can change the innings to 3. Making this Achievement easier.

Using the , highlight any of the features in the stadium and press to bring up the object menu. Select any of the unlocked objects (i.e. Ultra Soft Wall), press to place the object, then press to bring up the menu and select OK. Once you select OK, the Achievement unlocks.

Once you have customized a Stadium, select Exhibition and play and win a game in your customized Stadium to unlock 'Home sweet home'.

Meister - 10
Use all cards in an offline game mode

There are a total of 33 Power-up Cards in the game and you must use each card at least once in any offline game mode. You begin the game with 14 Cards already unlocked, and you unlock the other 19 by playing Challenge Mode. Below is a list of all the Power-up Cards.

DOUBLE plate - 20
Score DOUBLE plate in an offline game mode

See 'SAC FLY plate'.

TRIPLE plate - 20
Score TRIPLE plate in an offline game mode

See 'SAC FLY plate'.

HOME RUN plate - 20
Score HOME RUN plate in an offline game mode

See 'SAC FLY plate'.

SAC FLY plate - 20
Score SAC FLY plate in an offline game mode

You must hit the ball () and have it land on a 'SAC FLY' zone for this Achievement to unlock.

Unlike standard Baseball video games like MLB 2K11, or the original Bobblehead Pros, in Bobblehead Battle the type of hit you get is determined by where your ball lands on the field after it is hit. There are multiple zones on the field which read 'OUT', 'SINGLE', 'DOUBLE', 'TRIPLE'. 'HOME RUN' and 'SAC FLY'.

*Note: To make this Achievement easier, go into Stadium Edit and change all of the hitting zones on the infield to the type of zone you need. Example, if you need the 'HOME RUN' plate, simply highlight each zone, press or and change the zone(s) to Home Run. Now enter a game and play in your customized stadium and once your at-bat, press to bunt and bunt the ball onto the Home Run Zone. Simply rinse and repeat, making sure to change the zones to whatever plates you need prior to entering a game.

You cannot change zones to SAC FLY, so this must be done by simply playing the game and landing on a SAC FLY zone (SAC FLY zones replace OUT zones when you have a runner at 3rd base with less than two outs). If you are having trouble getting a Sac Fly, the easiest method is to go into Stadium Edit and change all the hitting zones on the infield to SINGLE and all the hitting zones in the outfield to OUT. Enter a game in your customized stadium and once your at-bat, press to bunt and bunt the ball onto the SINGLE zone. Do this 3-times to load the bases. Now the OUT zones will change to SAC FLY zones. Simply hit a ball to a SAC FLY zone for the Achievement to unlock.

KING - 20
Beat all teams in CHALLENGE MODE

From the Main Menu, select Challenge Mode. You must beat all 30 MLB Teams in Challenge Mode for this Achievement to unlock. Games are 3-innings and can end in a 0-0 Draw, so make sure you have a lead going into the bottom of the 3rd inning.

*Note: These games count towards the '20th anniversary' and '5th anniversary' Achievements.

KING - 20
Beat all teams in CHALLENGE MODE

From the Main Menu, select
Challenge Mode. You must beat all 30 MLB Teams in Challenge Mode for this Achievement to unlock. Unfortunately you cannot lower the innings in Challenge Mode, so this Achievement will take some time as each game is a minimum of 9-innings.

I was able to win the first challenge against the Pirates in 3 innings. Of course, I haven't played any other games in Challenge Mode but possibly they don't have to be 9 innings. I'll check again, though.

You are correct. I just beat the Pirates and it only took 3 innings. I wonder if all 30 Teams can be beaten in 3. I updated the guide by just taking off how many innings it takes, since right now we don't really know how many innings it takes to win in the late round of Challenge mode.

I really think it should be longer to complete, the challenge mode takes forever with 30 games.
