The moment I decided to stop using the guess pitch feature and just watch the ball and hit it like in the baseball games of my youth I started hitting much better. I think the penalties for guessing the pitch and/or location incorrectly are much worse in this game, or the benefits for guessing correctly aren't as good as in past iterations.
^This is so true, I also started hitting even better than I already was when I turned guess pitch off. I have no idea why I waited this long to do this. Also since no one has mentioned this yet in this topic, if you are going to use guess pitch don't use 1/4, it's broken apparently.
