|Break any window for an out.|
The neighborhood that has the most windows for you to break is Brooklyn as you will be playing in between a bunch of apartments. It is the first neighborhood you play in Tour Mode. To get a better angle at hitting a window I would turn your player when he bats to the left if he bats right and to the right if he bats left so that when he hits the ball it will have a better shot at breaking a window. You have to break the window for an out, if you break it when you hit a foul ball you will not unlock the achievement. As soon as you break any window for an out the achievement will unlock.
|Retire the Side||5|
|Go three up, three down in an inning.|
To get this achievement you will need to strike out or get out all 3 batters you face in an inning. If more than 3 of your opponents batters comes up to the plate you will not be able to get this achievement. I found that using 2 controllers works the best. Just have controller 1 throw any pitch and have controller 2 just sit there and not swing.
|Hit a home run in Boston.|
It was extremely hard for me to even get close to hitting a home run in Boston vs the CPU. It is by far the biggest neighberhood in the game which makes this achievement somewhat difficult. So I would suggest either getting this online against a friend or by using 2 controllers and making your 2nd controller just lob the ball to the plate by tapping . Now while batting I would suggest you hit as it is the power swing button. If you have Albert Pujols, Ryan Howard, Carlos Beltran or any other power hitters unlocked they can easily hit a home run in Boston.
|Collect a full team of pros.|
You will have to buy card packs to get this achievement. You will earn points to purchase card packs by hitting home runs, striking out batters, and hitting certain objects in the game(such as cars, water towers, basketball rims, fire hydrants, garage doors, etc.). There is only 4 players per team in this game and since every team starts out with a pro you will only need to get 3 more cards to get this achievement. You can trade cards in for a card of your choice, if you have 3 or more of that same card, to trade a duplicate card in just simply scroll over to that card and hit and then pick the card of your choosing. Just make sure you don't pick a card you already have.
|Hit a grand slam.|
A grand slam is when the bases are loaded and a player hits a home run.
|Skill is All You Need||20|
|Win a ranked match with a team of amateurs.||(2)|
If you want help with this achievement please post in the MLB Stickball Achievement Trading Thread. Since just about nobody plays this game online it should be relatively easy to find your friend when searching a ranked match. As always you can try and win this game legit but since there is no online community it might be hard to do.
|Throw a no hitter in a ranked match.||(1)|
A no hitter is when your pitcher throws a complete game and he allows no hits during the entire game. In the MLB it must be a 9-inning game for it to count as a no hitter but in this game you can throw a no hitter in a 3-inning game or a 6-inning game.
|Hit for the cycle with one player in tour mode.|
Hitting for the cycle in Baseball is when a batter hits a single, a double, a triple, and a home run all in the same game.
|Hit the wheel on the barn in St. Louis.|
The wheel is in St. Louis on the barn and it is located between the field of hay and the giant water well. This one is not hard to hit but it is surely frustrating.
|Hit the basketball rim in Chicago.|
The basketball hoop is located in Chicago and it is in the back driveway to the right. You can hit the backboard to get this achievement as well, not just the rim. Note that if the ball hits the ground or a roof before hitting the rim, it doesn't always count.
|Collect all 120 MLB® baseball cards.|
There are a total of 120 MLB cards in the game and you will earn points to purchase card packs by hitting home runs, striking out batters, and hitting certain objects in the game (such as cars, water towers, basketball rims, fire hydrants, garage doors, etc.). You will need 50 points to buy a card pack. Every card pack will come with 3 cards, so you will sometimes get duplicates. By playing through the Tour Mode you should be able to get a good bit of points to purchase some card packs.
Alternate method of earning points to unlock cards: You can set up an exhibition game with two turbo controllers and let it run overnight. Set to repeat and since nobody is swinging, there will be no score and you will go into extra innings. Each strike out is worth 5 points, so you can earn 1000 points in roughly 5 hours with two turbo controllers.
If you don't have two turbo controllers, you can do an online match with a second Xbox. For online games, the computer will force you to pitch after 20 seconds or so, and it will almost always be a strike. This is slower than using tubo controllers, but it can be done while you sleep, so it has some advantages over playing the Tour Mode. You can earn around 800 points in an 8 hour session online with no turbo controllers. Note that the game keeps playing even if your controller turns off, so this does not have to be done with wired controllers.
|Hit the water tower in Brooklyn.|
The water tower in Brooklyn is located on an apartment roof on the right side. Using actual pros instead of amateurs as obvisiously the pros are better than the amatuers. To me the St. Louis Cardinals & New York Mets, once you get one of those teams filled up with pros, are the two teams that have the most power but any team will do to get this achievement.
