Introduction
Welcome to Backyard Sports: Sandlot Sluggers. This game has 45 achievements for 1000 . This is a very fun game and if you like baseball, you will absolutely adore it. Good news here is that all of the non-story achievements can be unlocked using 2 controllers. And that is a very good news because some of these achievements cannot be done while playing against the computer. To unlock non-story achievements, simply go to "Pickup" game and select any 2 teams you like.

Preparation
Before doing anything, go to "Options" menu, and make sure you have DIFFICULTY set to EASY and MANUAL FIELDING set to OFF. If you are planning to do Story Mode first, set the INNINGS to 9. If you are working on non-story achievements, I suggest you change it to 5 as some achievements require you to do a task in 5 innings.


There are 45 achievements with a total of 1000 points.

Nice Pitch, K?5 Strike out a batter
This will probably be one of your first achievements. Simply strike out a batter. You can use 2 controllers for this one.


Patience is a Virtue5 Get a walk while at bat
Computers will throw strikes; Therefore have the second controllers throw 4 balls outside the strike zone, which can be done if the pitching meter is stopped at the top(red.)

Tick Tock5 Get blowed up real good by a Ticking Time BallWhen the computer/second controller are batting, let them activate their power up. If they get the dynamite icon, serve up a good pitch and if it stays in the ballpark, one of your fielders will get blown away and achievement will unlock.

Ribby10 Congratulations on your first RBI!
You will easily get this out of your way early. You can have second controller serve you a pitch. Simply bunt and run around the bases all the way home is another cheesy way to do this.


Savin' the Day!10 Change pitchers before the final inning and win the game
Simply change the pitcher by pausing the game and going to "Assign Positions." Make sure somebody else is the pitcher. Honestly I do not think it matters if you win or lose from that point on. I actually lost and still got the achievement unlocked.

First W10 Congratulations on your first win!
You won the game! Congrats! Have 10 on me!

No Quarter Given10 Earn a win through the mercy rule
Win a game by being at least 10 runs ahead before the final inning. You will get this out of the way while going for "No Mercy." You can also use 2 controllers and have your team beat up on second controller.

Going... Going...10 Hit one out of the park
Hit a Homerun out of the park. This can be done most of the time by any player who has a 4-star power. To go for a Homerun, press Left Stick UP and then B.

Out of This World10 Hit a home run off a Meteor Ball
Meteor Ball power-up is rare, so once you get this while on offense, make sure you put the bat on the ball and hit it out.

There is No Spoon10 Successfully hit a Mirage Ball
Same as "Out of This World" only make sure that the second controller gets a mirage ball from their power-up.

Houston, We Have a Problem10 Strike out a batter using the Rocket Ball
When you are pitching, get to 2 strikes and then hope to get the rocket ball from one of your power-ups. Pitch it and strike batter out. Make sure that the second controller doesn't swing if you are using a second controller.

Great Balls of Fire!15 Earn a double or better with the Fire Bat
While batting, activate a power-up. If you got the fire bat, swing away and get yourself a double. And yes, this is a breeze if you have second controller on the other side.

Like Cy15 Win a game without changing pitchers
This refers to the great Cy Young. Win a game using just one pitcher. Unless you are going for "Savin' The Day" achievement, there is no reason why you should even change the pitcher in this game.

Ice Catch!15 Freeze a fielder using The Icicle
Once you get the icicle power up, either swing or bunt the ball. As soon as the fielder tries to field the ball, you are 15 richer.

3 Up, 3 Down20 Strike out three batters in one inning
This has to be done with 2 controllers as computer batters are difficult to strike out, let alone 3 times in the same inning. Simply pitch down the middle, while second controller does nothing in the same inning.

Double Play!20
See "Triple Play."

Like Bill20 Win a game with a walk off home run
This is a painful one for me as a Yankees fan because they are referring to Bill Mazeroski, who hit a game-winning homerun against the Yankees in 1960 World Series. Replicate the scenario by being on the home team and the game being tied at the bottom of the last inning. Have the second controller pitch to you. Just like Bill, hit it out of the park for achievement to unlock.
Double!20 Hit for a double
Either bunt for a double against a second controller or you may try doing it legit with the very fast player or with the help of time ticking ball, the icicle or a fire bat power up. Ground-Rule doubles will also count. You can also hit a double in Pablo's Sandlot if the dog steals your ball.


Greased Lightning20 Get a single on a bunt attempt
This can either be done with Vicki or your player that will have 5-star speed. You can also use second controller for this as well.

Back Against the Wall20 Hit a home run with two strikes and zero balls
Have the second controller get 2 strikes on you. Once you hear the heartbeat sound effect, this is your cue to hit a homerun on the next pitch. Bunting for a homerun will work here as well.

Decked Out20 Got all the gear in Story Mode
See "Have Mercy."
Back to Back, Jack!20 Hit back to back out of the park home runs
Notice the "Out of the park" side note, which means you cannot bunt for homseruns against second controller here. No worries as you will hit plenty of back-to-back homeruns as you progress deeper into the Story Mode. If Story Mode is not your cup of tea, select any team in a pickup that has a 5-star power player. Once they hit a homerun, use a power-up for the next batter and hope for a rocket ball power up, which will ensure a homerun.

Slugger Star20 Tony joins your team in Story Mode
See "Have Mercy."

Twin All-Stars20 Sid & Ash join your team in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy."
Backyard Powerhouse20 Pablo joins your team in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy."

The Cannon20 Keisha joins your team in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy."

Upper Classman20 Jorge joins your team in Story Mode


See "Have Mercy."

Rocket Launch20 Vicki joins your team in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy."

Mac Attack20 Joey joins your team in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy."

Mathlete20 Dmitri joins your team in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy."

Batting Around25 The whole team gets a swing during a single inning

Can be done legit as you progress in the Story Mode. You can also do this in a pickup game using second controller and simply bunt around for all 9 batters in that inning.

Like Joe25 Win in the final inning while things are looking down (5-inning game)

This is a secret achievement in disguise as it doesn't tell you much. Of course, if you are a baseball fan, you know that they are referring to the great Joe Carter, who hit a dramatic walk-off HR in 1993 World Series. Here is what you do: First, make sure you are a home team and you have 5 innings set up. For best results, I suggest you turn FIELDING option to MANUAL. Plug in the second controller and simply get outs through all 4 innings against each other. In the top of the 5th inning, have second controller score a run. In the bottom of the 5th, have the second controller retire(get out) the first 2 batters. Next have the second controller give up a walk to the next batter. Throw 2 strikes to the next batter. With 2 strikes on, you now must hit a homerun! Fortunately bunting for a homerun will work as well. I have tried this achievement every other way before the 2-strikes and it did not unlock! You must hit a homerun, while being down by 1 run, having 2 outs and 2 strikes on you in the bottom of the 5th inning. If you mess this up, you will have to start the whole thing over again.

*EDIT* It seems as if this achievement is glitchy. If my method does not unlock, please try an alternative method below(first credit to: New Era Yaz67) Other players are reporting that switching to "Manual Fielding" has helped them as well because the fielders on second controller will never touch the ball and thus increase the chances of getting this achievement.

"..make sure you are down by 5 or 6 runs going into the bottom of the 5th inning, make sure with your second controller though you strike out the 1st 2 batters in the bottom of the 5th inning and then start the improbable comeback and just bunt everyone on base until you come back and win the game and this should unlock."
Double to Nuttin'25 Keep your opponent from scoring a run after leading off with a double or a triple

Have the second controller get a double/triple with their first batter. Simply get outs against the next batters and make sure they did not score in the inning.

Triple!30 Hit for a triple

It is difficult to hit a triple against a computer. It requires you to have a 5-star speed and a deep ballpark. You can either use 2 controllers and bunting for a triple or if you want a challenge, you can also hit a fountain at Garcia Manor which will award you with a triple as well.
Triple Play!30 Get three runners out in a single play
Get three runners out in a single play. You should consider using this method to knock the "Double Play" out of the way at the same time. I have yet to be able to pull off a double play against a computer, let alone a triple play. Second controller to the rescue! The best way to go about it is to have 0 outs and while second controller batting, put the first 2 or 3 runners on. Have the next batter bunt and have your main controller throw home. Quickly grab the second controller and keep pressing LT and send all the runners home while the catcher is there waiting to tag them all out.
Speed Demon30 Steal second and third base with the same player in the same inning

Very simple when you have the second controller. Get the runner on base and then steal second base and then the third while second controller does nothing in the same inning. For a challenge against the computer, either use Vicki or your own 5-star speed player. Make sure the ball is thrown before attempting to steal.

Blast Those Quads30 Get four or more hits with one player in a single game

You can either get this deep in the Story Mode or use second controller to help you out. This can be combined with "Cyclone" if you wish. Single, double, triple or a homerun will count as hits.

Like Lou35 Hit a grand slam

An achievement named after a great Lou Brock. A grand slam is a homerun hit when the bases are loaded. Note that you cannot bunt for a grand slam. This achievement will unlock after the Grand Slam graphic will appear on screen. You can have second controller help you load the bases and if the next hitter has at least a 4-star power, choose a power swing to knock it out of the park. You may also use power-ups to help you out, but beware of the mole ball power-up that will keep your ball on(or should I say under) the ground.
Run! Run! Run!35 Hit an in-the-park homer

This is simply not possible against the computer. Use the second controller's help and bunt for an inside-the-park homerun.

Like Nolan35 Hold your opponents to zero runs (5-inning game)

Do not give up a run in a 5-inning game, just like great Nolan Ryan used to do. You can try it legit or use the second controller if you are having difficulties.
Grand Theft35 Steal home

Not possible against the computer, but very possible against the second controller. With the runner on 3rd base, simply press down on D-Pad and have second controller do nothing.

They Call Me Bonehead Fred40 Score the winning run in the bottom of the final inning with two outs and two runners left on base

If you knew that this achievement was named after Fred Merkle, you know way too much baseball. This must be done in 5 innings. Go to the bottom of the fifth inning with the score tied, have second controller get 2 quick outs against you then walk the next 3 batters. Now simply steal home with the second controller doing nothing and the achievement is unlocked.
Cyclone45 Hit for the cycle with a single player

Traditionally a cycle in baseball is defined as a player hitting a single, a double, a triple and a homerun all in the same game. However, I got this one legit in the Story Mode by hitting a homerun, a triple and a double during my first three at-bats.
Love of the Game45 Defeat The Bullies in Story Mode

See "Have Mercy"

Have Mercy!75 Win every Story Mode game using the mercy rule

If you are not going to touch the Story Mode, you are forfeiting up to 300 .

First missable achievement is "Have Mercy!" which requires you to beat every team by 10 runs before the 9th inning. If you are not up by at least 10 runs going into the 9th or if your lead becomes fewer than 10 runs in the bottom of the 9th, simply quit and try again.

Set-Up:

Before starting the Story Mode, go to the options and make sure you have the following:

Innings: 9
Mercy Rule: ON
Difficulty: EASY
Manual Fielding: OFF


Start the Story Mode. Select your name and look any way you want. The 3rd menu should be set-up like this:

Position: First Base
Power: 5 Stars
Speed: 5 Stars
Pitching: 0 Stars
Fielding: 5 Stars

Things to remember

  • You cannot edit line-ups: All lineups in this game are based on a baseball official fielder positional number. This is how the batting order will always look like.

1. Pitcher
2. Catcher
3. First Base
4. Second Base
5. Third Base
6. Shortstop
7. Left Field
8. Center Field
9. Right Field

  • Never steal bases: You will almost never hit into a double play in this game and because you will win every game by mercy rule, you need runners on base, so that your stars will bring them home by hitting a homerun.
  • Don't get greedy around the base paths: Outfielders have rocket arms and even what seems to be a single in the shallow outfield can be an out at first base sometimes. Therefore if you hit the ball to the fence, as much as tempting it may be, stay at first base and let the computer handle all your base running.
  • Use power-ups on offense only: Power-ups will instantly get you a hit if you put the bat on the ball, which is vital if you will want to win every game via mercy rule.
  • Use power-ups on non-star players only: Almost every power player is capable of hitting a homerun using their power swing. Non-star players will usually get an out. Use the power-ups on non-stars to get them on base and let the power players to bring them home.

This is the order that you should use when challenging teams:

The Rooftop - Keisha Phillips(Pitcher)
Quantum Field - Dmitri Petrovich(Catcher)
Pablo's Sandlot - Pablo Sanchez(Second Base)
The Commons - Joey Macadoo(Shortstop)
Concrete Canyon - Tony Delvecchio(Right Field)
Cul De Sac(Night) - Vicki Kawaguchi(Left Field)
Cul De Sac(Day) - The Gemenis(3rd Base)*
Garcia Manor - Jorge Garcia (Center Field)

* - In story mode, you will get Ashley after she tells you that Sidney has homework to do. However, upon unlocking the All-Star team, Sidney will replace you at first base.

With your player being at first base, you are hitting third in the line-up. During your first game, get one of the non-stars in front of you on base and hit a homerun with your player. If this doesn't happen, simply quit and restart the game. The achievement will still unlock if you quit/lose. As long as you win by mercy rule, you are fine.

The first game will be the most difficult to win by a mercy rule, which is why you should try and hit a homerun with your player in order to give you the best chance. If non-stars get on base, do not get aggressive on bases and just simply keep the line-up moving until you get to bat again. During this time earn power ups by getting hits from non-stars. When pitching, pitch low, out of the strike zone, while hitting the sweet spot on the power meter. When you are on deck, make sure the batter in front of use gets on base(use power-up!) Try not to use a power up anywhere else in the line up.

After winning the first game, things get much easier as Keisha now bats first and you are batting third. Just like you, she has a 5-star power. Therefore, get homeruns with her and then use power up on the next player to get on base, so that you can bring them home as well.

After you defeat Dmitri, don't be shocked if the games become really short and you win by a mercy rule by the 3rd inning every time. With Keisha, Dmitri and you batting 1-2-3 with 5-star power, you should at easily hit 2 out of 3 HRs every time, earning you valuable power-ups for the non-star players.

By the time you face the bullies, you shouldn't have much trouble with them. I beat bullies by a 2nd inning mercy rule on my very first try.


The other missable achievement is "Decked Out." About once every 2 games, you will have to play one of four mini-games. You must win each game. If you accidentally quit or do not click RESTART after losing a game, you will have to repeat the entire Story Mode over again, because there is no way to turn off game's auto-save feature. Therefore if you lose, make sure you are pressing RESTART until you actually win the mini game. Mini games are not too tough, except for HOT POTATO, which is more luck than skill:

Dingers: Simply hit the most home runs against 3 other players. Ties go to the further total distance.

The Cube: This is a baseball's version of "Simon Says" where you have to click the corresponding controller button before anyone else. Computers are generally slow, so take your time. Game goes to 10.

Pickle: Very easy. Simply mash the buttons to win a tug-o-war style of gameplay. Do this twice.

Hot Potato: Toughest game of all 4 because it is more luck than skill. You can lose without ever having a chance. All 4 players throw the ball around. It will start ticking, at which point it will explode at any moment. Once explodes, that player is out of the round. Game goes to 3. Tip: If you are holding on to a ball for more than 3 seconds, even if its not ticking, it will explode in your hands.

---THE END---

Question (just to be sure)

I just won my first game 10 - 0. I got my 10th run in the top of the 9th and won the game. There was no mention of mercy rule or anything. Does it still count as a mercy win or do i need to start over?

So I have now done your exact method for the "Like Bill" achievement three times now and no achievement. I have been playing with two controllers and a 5 inning game. Each time I was the home team and tied at the bottom of the fith with me batting. I bunt with my very first batter up to the plate and run around the bases for an in the park homerun. Then the game ends b/c obviously the other team cant have another turn at bat. Anyways, like I said Ive done it three times now and no cheevo. So I ask what am I doing wrong or does it have to be at a 9 inning game or something. Either way unfortunately your method isnt working for me.

Maybe its momentarily glitched and ill have to delete my save to fix it, i dunno. This is the only cheevo im missing besides the story ones so if you have any ideas i would appreciate it.

Thanx

It has to be done in the 8th inning...if the game goes 9 innings or more, it is played just like a regular game.

That might be true...my worked within the park though...some achievements are glitched. "Just Joe" might give troubles for some as well. I had to do it 3 times with similar scenarios to get it right.

Out of This World10 Hit a home run off a Meteor Ball
This may seem difficult, but really isn't. Once a second controller gets a meteor ball power, have them throw it. Simply bunt it and run around the bases for a Homerun.


I got this using the Meteor Ball Power Up while I was batting. I don't think there is a Meteor Ball Power Up while pitching.

Meteor Achievement

Hey Guys, thank you so much for the guide it really came in handy, I have had one issue so far with the guide, I have tried the technique for the meteor ball with 2 controllers and on 5 innings, bunted the ball and never fielded it and still the achievement will not pop. Is there something Im missing in my setup?

Is there something Im missing in my setup?
It's an offensive power up not a pithing power up

this game is impossible to play. no matter what I do in story mode, i cannot do anything! If I hit the ball, They Catch It. If Use power moves while pitching the hit it, if i use power moves while batting, they throw out of the way knuckleballs that you cannot tell if they are hittable. This game flat out sucks, and I cannot imagine giving a child this and seeing them enjoy it. they would never win.

the meteor ball is a pretty rare one to get, the icon looks like a baseball with a comet trail behind it. Once you get it, regardless of who is at bat, you will hit an out of the park homerun automatically as long as you make contact.

Thanks man, so I finally found the symbol for the meteor ball but I can't seem to activate it all, I have gotten everything but that, my story is completed and all I have left is this achievement, is there any trick to activating the meteor ball?

great guide but there is no secret achievement called 'Oh Mercy.' I have most of the cheevos already and don't see that achievement anywhere. Even checked on line and can't find it. But the 'Have Mercy' one is just beat every story game. Are we supposed to do it by 10 runs and it won't count?
Help!!!!

Excellent guide, especially for story mode. The two most important Story tips you stated are NEVER steal bases and ALWAYS stay on first for a single no matter how far away the ball is in the outfield. They WILL get you pretty much every time.

Also, as you stated, the first game is the hardest to win. Once you have Keisha and Dmitri on your team, you can win most games by the second inning. The game gets MUCH easier by the time you're even halfway through story mode. By the time I reached the Bullies, I scored 22 runs in the 1st inning including 6 home runs in a row!!!

Thankfully I got lucky and got Hot Potato on my third try, but I can see where it would get frustrating if your luck isn't as good.
