    B.Introduction
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Awwwwyeah!!!!You know it's baseball season and you know that brings us a new
    wonderful game from Sony. This years iteration is better than the last and 
    there are a couple of worthwhile additions this year. Enough with the intro
    though, let's get to it!!!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    D.Creating a Fielder*
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is where you will make your future Hall Of Famer(Hopefully). Much like
    the pitcher section you choose your batters age, height weight, number, 
    position, handedness, batting stance and ratings. Most of the changes are
    cosmetic with the exception of your position and your ratings. Since these
    are all cosmetic I have no suggestions except for going with what you like.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    E.Fielding Positions
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As you all should know there are 8 positions that can be played and as such
    that you can choose from. I will give a brief description of each position
    and I what you should expect in that position.
    
    IMPORTANT!!! I didn't add any points to plate discipline because I will be
    controlling my batter and I can choose whether to swing at a pitch or not.
    Also with all positions I prefer to have speedy contact hitters.
    
    IMPORTANT!!! Each rating can only be increased by 5 points and you have a 
    total of 50 points to distribute to all your ratings.
    
    Catcher
    
    His main job is to call the pitches that the pitcher should throw then 
    actually catch pitches thrown. In addition to this he also has to catch weak
    fly balls behind the plate and also throw out baserunners trying to steal.
    Generally aren't fast but need to be durable.
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Arm Strength/Accuracy=+5 Durablity=+5
    Plate Vision=+5,Fielding Ability=+5, Clutch=+5.
    
    1st Baseman
    
    He presides over the other "hot corner". Most of your throws in the game will
    come to your 1st baseman to get outs. In addition to this he also will keep
    runners in check or will play the foul line to spear hard line drives. 
    Another position which doesn't require much speed but great reaction time.
    
    Rating Recommendation- Contact/Power=+5, Durability=+5, Arm Strength/
    Accuracy=+5,Reaction=+5, Fielding Ability=+5,Clutch=+5, Vision=+5
    
    2nd Baseman
    
    He will be busy throughout the course of the game because he will catch alot
    of the balls thrown to second base and he is also responsible for guarding
    the middle of the field(shared with the Shortstop). As a result of this he 
    will turn alot of Double plays and should have good speed and reaction time
    and an accurate arm.
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Durability=+5, Arm Strength/
    Accuracy=+5,Reaction=+5, Fielding Ability=+5,Speed=+5
    
    Shortstop
    
    Like the second baseman he also has a similiar position only from the other
    side of the 2nd baseman(from the catchers perspective the left side of the
    field). He also will chase down shallow fly balls and hits to the short 
    outfield in addition to turning double plays. Like the 2nd Baseman, speed and
    reaction are important as is arm strength so the ball can get across the field
    to 1st base faster.
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Durability=+5, Arm Strength/
    Accuracy=+5,Reaction=+5, Fielding Ability=+5,Speed=+5
    
    3rd Baseman
    
    He presides over the "Hot Corner" so called because most Right Handed hitters
    will pull the ball hard to this area. He must also catch fly balls in fair
    and foul territory and will also throw to second to start double plays. Since
    balls will frequently be hit hard at him he should have a good amount of
    reaction to jump on bunts and also a strong arm so throws can get to 1st 
    base faster. 
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Durability=+5, Arm Strength/
    Accuracy=+5,Reaction=+5, Fielding Ability=+5,Clutch=+5
    
    
    Left Fielder
    
    As the corner infielder closest to the plate he will back the 3rd baseman in
    making plays home in addition to fielding both fair and foul balls. Generally
    doesn't need a strong arm but is always helpful. Should have good fielding
    ability and also a fair amount of speed.
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Durability=+5, Arm Strength/
    Accuracy=+5,Reaction=+5, Fielding Ability=+5,Speed=+5
    
    Center Fielder
    
    Is the "captain" of the outfield and is responsible for covering the most
    ground to get ot fly balls and also coordinating with other outfielders to
    avoid collisions. Since he hase the most ground to cover he should possess a
    great amount of speed and fielding ability and good reaction time also. Arm
    strength normally isn't paramount but as with all other positions, it helps
    alot.
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Speed=+5, Fielding Ability=+5
    Reaction=+5, Arm Strength/accuracy=+5, Durability=+5
    
    Right Fielder
    
    As the other corner outfielder he will back up the 1st baseman on balls in his
    direction. Also has alot of ground to cover so he should be reasonably fast
    and should have a very strong arm because he is farthest from 3rd base and
    good fielding ablility so he can actually catch the ball.
    
    Rating Recommendation-Contact/Power=+5, Speed=+5, Fielding Ability=+5
    Reaction=+5, Arm Strength/accuracy=+5, Durability=+5
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    F.Ratings
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now this is the meat and potatoes of your player. This is where you will 
    develop his ratings strarting out. Needless to say this is extremely important
    because how your player starts off is crucial to getting a head start on being
    the best player you can be. Your ratings will be balanced though because you
    can only increase each stat by 5 points and you have 50 points to spend.
    
    IMPORTANT!!!It is crucial for you to try and achieve the goals that your
    manager sets for you. If you fail the goals you'll lose points and that will
    be detrimental to your player development.
    
    CONTACT(Left and Right handed)- As it's name implies this rating determines
    how easy it is for you to make good contact with the ball. If this rating is
    low you could time your swing perfectly and still not get a good hit. This
    will also make it easier for you to hit to all fields.
    
    IMPORTANT- All postions
    Starting Point- Maxed out(5 points this year)
    
    POWER(Left and Right Handed)- Like contact except this determines how hard you
    can hit the ball. If your power rating is high then you will find it easier
    to hit homeruns and hard line drives. 
    
    IMPORTANT- 1st/3rd Base,Right/Left Outfielders
    Starting Point- Since it only takes 5 points to max this out why not?
    
    BATTING CLUTCH- This rating is basically a test of your mettle or how you 
    perform in pressure situations(Runner in scoring position, game on the line).
    This is important but not as important as some other ratings which are harder
    to raise.
    
    IMPORTANT- All positions
    Starting Point- Leave it alone
    
    BUNTING ABILITY- This determines how well you can lay down a bunt. This is
    kind of important because if you lay down a good bunt it's easy for you to
    get on base. If your fast it becomes even easier.
    
    IMPORTANT- All positions(I guess)
    Starting Point- Leave it alone
    
    DRAG BUNTING- This is the same as bunt only it is layed down while the pitch
    is in motion and is meant to fool the infielders. 
    
    Important- All positions(I guess)
    Starting Point- LIA
    
    PLATE VISION- This determines how much of the plate you can basically see or
    cover with a swing. The better this stat becomes wider the narrower the 
    strike zone becomes and the eaiser it is for you to see pitches and get hits.
    Vlad's plate vision is crazy(Hence the reason why he can knock a pitch that's
    close to the dirt out of the park.
    
    IMPORTANT- All positions
    Starting Point-+5
    
    PLATE DISCIPLINE- This determines how patient you batter is at the plate.
    Obviously this rating doesn't matter if you are controlling your player 
    because his discipline is determined by you(you choose what to swing at).If
    you are simulating games then this rating becomes important but if not don't
    bother.
    
    IMPORTANT- None(If you are controlling the player)
    Starting Point- LIA
    
    BASE RUNNING ABILITY- This detemrines how well your player rounds the bases.
    Basically this is a measure of he turns back and forth(say if he's running
    to second base but has to retreat to first). It also measures how fast you
    take off when trying a steal attempt.
    
    IMPORTANT- Fast players
    Starting Point- LIA(Won't be more important than speed or Batting)
    
    BASE RUNNING AGGRESIVENESS- This is a measure of how aggresive you player is
    rounding the bases. Like plate discipline this rating doesn't matter if you
    are controlling the player because you choose how aggressive you are when you
    want to steal a base.
    
    IMPORTANT- None(You control your player)
    Starting Point- LIA
    
    DURABILITY- This rating determines how many games you can play back to back
    and how often you get injured. Players with great durability have long seasons
    and careers which should be what you are shooting for. If your durability is
    low you won't play in many back to back games because you'll be too tired and
    if you can't play then you can't get any points.
    
    IMPORTANT- All Positions
    Starting Point-+5
    
    SPEED- As it's name implies it's how fast your player is in the field and on
    the base paths. Depending on the position you would want to have a fast player
    because that makes it easier to get to balls and turn plays.
    
    IMPORTANT- 2nd Base/Shortstop, Center Fielder
    Starting Point- I would say Max this out for all positions since it's only 5
    points and I can't think of any other rating to increase in place of this.
    
    ARM STRENGTH- This rating determines how strong you player throws the ball in
    the field. This is crucial for Catchers and Corner Outfielders because they
    will almost always be in a position to catch a runner(either stealing base or
    trying to tag from 3rd base).
    
    IMPORTANT- All positions
    Starting Point-+5
    
    ARM ACCURACY- This determines how accurate your throws are. This should be
    proportionate to you Strength because a ball thrown hard will no accuracy will
    normally do more harm then good. 
    
    IMPORTANT- All positions
    Starting Point- +5
    
    REACTION TIME- This determines how fast your player reacts when the ball is in
    play. This important for everyone because the faster you react to the ball the
    higher the chance you will get an out.
    
    IMPORTANT- All positions
    Starting Point-+5
    
    FIELDING ABILITY- This determines how well you layer fields the ball and how
    often he will make an error. As a result of this you should want all your
    player to have good fielding ability especially the 1st baseman because that's
    where most of your throws in a game will go to.
    
    IMPORTANT- ALL Positions
    Starting Point-+5
    
    BLOCKING ABILITY- This determines how well you catcher can block a wild pitch
    from rolling to the back stop and out of his reach. Important for catchers
    because this will cover up some of the mistakes your pitcher will make.
    
    IMPORTANT- Catchers
    Starting Point- LIA The starting point for catchers is fine.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    G.Starting your Career*
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Once you have finished making you fielder you will be prompted to select what
    team you want to go. Depending on what position you chose to play, your ideal
    team will differ. If you want to spend some time in the minors then I would
    recommend you go the Yankees or any team that is strong at your position. The 
    reason for this is that during spring training you will be playing the MLB
    Team and you play almost eveyrday to get some points before the regular season
    starts.
    
    G1.Spring Training
    You will only have the opportunity to do spring training in your first year.
    There are ways to get around this limit though. Whenever your contract is up
    decline the offer from the teams and choose to go into the season without a
    team. You will get the chance to pick what team you want to play for then you
    will be able to do spring training all over again. Your goal in spring 
    training is to do good enough to make the team(You will never make the MLB 
    team from spring training. You will always start in the minors). This is good
    because you get to play with the Big Boys and get alot of training points to 
    improve your fielder. Just focus on getting your hits and HR's and you'll do
    fine.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    H.Regular Season and Playoffs*
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Once spring training is done you will enter the regular season and a number of
    menu options available for you to cycle through. I will give a synopsis of the
    options and also go into depth a little bit. I'm going to assume that everyone
    who is playing this game knows how the regular season progresses so I'm not
    going to explain that in this section. Not a whole lot of changes that I 
    noticed this year.
    
    H1.Schedule
    As it's name implies this is where you see your teams schedule and where you
    have to go to play your games. The greatest feature of THE SHOW is the ability
    to simulate innings and games. If you want to advance to your next game you 
    would simply hit X and then hit the option that says sim to next appearance. 
    The game will simulate all other games until you the one you are playing in.
    This will allow you to progress through your career alot faster than if you
    had to play every single game.
    
    H2.Around the League
    This is basically your stats central. If it's a stat it can be found in this
    menu. I will break this down section by section to make it easier to read and
    more comprehensive.
    
    HH1.Standings
    This is where you come to check the standings in the league. You can see what
    your overall record is, How many runs your team has scored, Runs given up, 
    Winning Streak,record of last 10 games played,Record against division, Home
    record,Away record, Day record and Night Record. Yeah I know it's a lot of 
    stats and you probably won't look at them through most of the season.
    
    HH2.Statistics
    In this screen you can see the individual statistics for the entire league,
    broken down team by team. There is a very comprehensive list of stats and if
    I listed them all this section would be alot longer so I am going to name the
    primary ones which are:Games Played,At-Bats,Batting Avg,Hits,Runs scored, 
    doubles,triples,homeruns,Runs Batted In,Stolen Bases,Times Caught Stealing,
    stolen base percentage,Base on Balls, Strikeouts,Slugging Percentage, and
    On-Base Percentage.For the pitchers it is:Games Played,Wins,Losses,Earned Run
    Average,Games Started,Complete Games,Shutouts,Saves,Blown Saves,Innings 
    pitched,Hits allowed,Runs,Earned Runs,HomeRuns,Bases on balls and Strikeouts.
     
    HH3.Team Overview
    This screen will show your entire organiztion, affiliates and all and the 
    state of mind your organization is in whether it's rebuild or push for the
    playoffs. Not very useful though.
    
    HH4.Team Rankings
    In this screen you can see what your team is ranked in every offensive and
    defensive category an also see the top the three players on your team in that
    category.
    
    HH5.Who's Hot
    Here is where you can see who's hot in the league or who's been on a tear in
    the past month. This is useful for seeing who you should avoid when you play
    a particular team.
    
    HH6.League Roundup
    This is where you can monitor all the transactions in the league. Signings,
    trades, releases everything involving the movement of players either from the
    DL or to another team or even moving up and down from the minors.
    
    HH7.League Leaders
    Here is where you can see who is leading the league in a good portion of the
    statistics that were listed above. If you are a stat nut(as most of us are)
    then you will spend alot of time in this menu option looking at and glossing
    over your stats.
    
    HH8.Accolades
    It is in this menu screen that you see who the front runners are for the 
    yearly awards and also look at the MLB single-season and career records in
    addition to being anle to look at the list of all the players inducted into 
    the Hall Of Fame. You can also see where everybody is in terms of the All-Star
    voting. Depending on how good your numbers are you will spend some time in the
    awards and the All-Star voting sections.
    
    H3.Player Management
    In this screen you see your team's batting order and pitching rotation but 
    since your a player not a manager you can't mess with any of the lineups or
    rotations. This means you have to rely on the manager putting you in the game
    which can be very frustrating. By pressing O you can see your player card 
    which has your information on it such as your stats for the current season and
    the one before it,all of your ratings, your contract info and your scouting
    report which can be interesting to read. This is where you can see where you
    measure up with the rest of the league. The scouting report tells you about
    your player. It's also interesting to see what they are saying about you as a
    player.Since you can't edit the rosters the only reason for you coming here 
    is to see how much better or worse you are than your teammates which can 
    affect your playing time.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I.Career Home Menu
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I decided to dedicate a whole section to this area of the game because it has
    some really important options that need to be discussed in depth so everybody
    can have a good understanding of how they work. As I will break this up into
    sections for ease of reading.
    
    NEW CHANGE- When you go to this screen you will see that the layout has been
    completely changed from last year. The Home menu now alternates between your
    season and last game stats, your scouting report and contract information.
    
    I1.Locker Room
    Not much has changed in this section of your career mode. You can check 
    messages from your manager or teammates, see your game or career stats, see
    your personal list of achievements and a graph charting your stats
    throughout your career. 
    
    I2.Advancement Goals
    New to this years game are the advancement goals. These basically boil down to
    the things you need to do to move your way up. From what I've seen so far they
    consist of improving specific ratings to to a point and also keeping a certain
    feilding %. For a fielder you will see things like drive in a certain number
    of runs or collect a certain number of bases. It's important to try and meet
    these goals, if you don't you will either be booted from the lineup or dropped
    in the order.
    
    I3.Interactions
    Much like last year you will see situational interactions like when you aren't
    getting enough playing time or are in the lower half of the batting order.
    
    RETIRE-"Retire from major league baseball and ride off into the sunset like a
    true professional."
    
    Reaction- Retiring will allow you to look at your plaque with a statement of
    how you did in the league. You will be able to look at your numbers one last
    time but you won't be able to play with your player anymore and you will also
    have to start another career mode.
    
    I4.Training
    Okay!! This is where you will spend most of your time in your career because
    it is here where you will make your pitcher better by using the training hours
    that you accumlate through completing the in-game tasks. Now you only have
    one primary rating that is trained and 2-3 secondary ratings trained.
    
    IMPORTANT!!! Whereas last yeat it mattered whether your team won, this year it
    doesn't mean anything. If you go 5 for 5 in a losing effort you will get the
    same amount of points you would have if you won.

    Secondary Attributes-Speed, Base Running Aggressiveness/Base Running Ability
    
    I5.Batting Performance
    New to this years game is the tracking of your batting performance. Depending
    on whether he gets alot of hits or frequently strikes out or rarely gets on
    base he will recieve a bonus or decline in his hitting ability. This can have
    a very dynamic impact on your career and makes it all the more important to
    try and be consistant. My player is hot and now when I see fastballs in the
    zone I hit homeruns(though my swing is timed right and I have little to no
    power and not much contact either). This should testify as to how important
    this can be.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    J.Off-Season*
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For all the stuff you have to do during the season you would the off-season
    would be worse right? Well you'd be wrong you have 4 options to look at in the
    off-season menu which are Retirements,Hall of Fame inductees,Career 
    progression and end off-season. There really isn't anything to do except look
    at a numerical representation of how much better you got. Outside of that just
    continue on to end off-season and start the next year. If you are in a
    contract year then you will have the option of resigning with your old team or
    accepting a contract from a new team. Regardless of what you do, you can get
    alot more then what they are offering(depending on how good your player is).
    Make sure that you save your game before you go into the off season so when
    you negotiate your contract you can see how much money you can get out of 
    them. This area has remained unchanged from last year.

    K.Retirement*
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you choose the retirement option in the Career Home menu your manager will
    Will give you a message basically supporting your decision to retire. After 
    that message you will see your plaque which will have a paragraph basically 
    outlining how great or poor you were in your career. 
    
    IMPORTANT!!!In order for you to get into the Hall Of Fame it doesn't matter
    how filled up your bar is, your status symbol must Hall Of Fame instead of
    All-Star.

    L.Hitting/Fielding Tips
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I've kept this section the same because from what i've seen so far all of 
    these tips still apply in this year's game.
    
    Tip#1- WAIT FOR YOUR PITCH!!!I can't stress how important this is in terms of
    getting hits and HR's. Wait for a pitch that you are comfortable with hitting.
    For me it's pitches that come on the inside. I wait until the pitch is thrown
    to that location then I jump on the pitch. Everybody has different hitting 
    styles and zones so stick with your favorite and most comfortable zone and
    you will rack up the hits!!
    
    Tip#2- BE PATIENT AT THE PLATE!!! This is actually an extension from the first
    tip but equally as important. Everytime I have went into a hitting slump this
    was the cure. Guess your favorite pitch and location and wait for the pitcher
    to throw either(Depending on the zone and the pitch you will guess both right
    at the same time)to your location or your pitch. This gives you wider plate
    coverage and makes it easier to hit the ball.
    
    Tip#3- ON INSIDE PITCHES PULL THE BALL!!!Since the ball is already coming
    toward you, use the momentum to launch the ball out of the park or at least
    get a hit. This is the easiest way to hit a Home run especially when swinging
    with Power.
    
    Tip#4- LAY DOWN A DRAG BUNT TO GET EASY HITS!!!I should note that this only
    works with a VERY HIGH speed rating. I have done this at least 50 times and
    haven't gotten caught yet. And my drag bunting rating is 0. If you need to
    continue a hit streak or want to start one, try to lay down the bunt on your
    1st AB.
    
    Tip#5- THIS MIGHT NOT WORK FOR EVERYBODY!!!GUESS THE PITCH DIRECTION OPPOSITE
    OF WHERE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE HITTING THE BALL!Since I see the ball better when
    it is moving away from my batter(and he's a switch hitter) I guess to the
    inside when batting against a RHP and guess to the outside against a LHP. I
    basically do this to cover my plate vision. If I guess right then I see where
    the pitch is going. If i'm wrong I know the pitch isn't coming inside and I 
    can adjust my swing. 
    
    Tip#6- TRY TO GET HITTING STREAKS!!!Although most of you have already been
    trying to do this, TRY HARDER!!! because the game rewards you handsomely for
    lengthy hitting streaks. I get 100 points every game even I get a base hit.
    You really start to see the difference once you get to 10 games.

    M.Fielder Career Progress
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Once again I'll chart my career progress to give you an idea of how I develop
    my player.
    
    IMPORTANT!!!!In this years game you only have 50 points to spend to start your
    career!!! You can't decrease any stats either as I guess the goal was to make
    your player as balanced as possible from the outset. This is actually a
    benefit in disguise because you can improve all the important stats starting
    out.

    couple of milestones this month also which is the reaosn for me having so many
    points. I got 150 hits and stole my 75th base.

    swiping 28 bases while raising my average 10 points. I got some points for
    getting 200 hits, 50 doubles and stealing 100 bases also.

    The Yankees offered me a 2 year contract for $675,000. I changed the contract
    to 1 year for $340,000 since i'll be much better next year. It's also for a 
    AAA starting position.
    
    2nd Season(AAA Yankees)
    
    April-Started the season on a good note keeping my avg in the 400's and 
    getting on base frequently.

    June-I got called up to the Yankees due to Andy Pettite getting injured in the
    middle of the month. As a result I didn't spend too many points this month as
    I wanted to save them in case I came up short in the majors.

    July- After a rough start in the bigs I would say my player has adjusted 
    nicely to the majors getting 29 hits in the month though I need to work on my
    power so my shots that reach the wall can get over it.

    August-I turned the plate coverage indicator on in the middle of the month and
    subsequently saw my hitting dramatically improve. I would strongly recommend
    this if you are struggling at the plate. I hit 3 HR's and making contact is so
    easy now. I'm also the front runner for Rookie of the year.

    September-Melky Cabrera came off the DL and I got benched as a result although
    i'm batting .390. I soon petitioned to the manager and he gave me back my 
    start and I continued on the same torrid pace that i've been on and i'm still
    in the lead for Rookie of the year.

    I told the Yankees that I wanted to stay with them in the middle of the season
    and they offered me a 5 year contract for $2.6 million but I made it a 1 year
    contract for $555,000 since I know i'll be worth more next year after playing
    a full season as a starter in the Majors!!
    
    3rd Season(MLB Yankees)
    
    April-I started the season out batting leadoff. After two games I got dropped
    to sixth wehre I stayed most of the month. I can't complain though because I
    had alot of chances to drive people in and that's why I had 11 RBI's.

    where the surge came from  but I'm swinging the bat and the ball is leaving
    the park.

    27 runs. I made the All-Star Team and got 500 points for it also. This raised
    my Status to All-Star so I put the difficulty up to All-Star from Veteran. I'm
    also leading the race for the Silver Slugger, Hank Aaron and Gold Glove awards
    in addition to being 3rd in the the MVP race.

    August-I got my 200th hit and 100th stolen base this month which gave 200 
    points to spend. I'm on pace to break Ichiro's hit record though i'll have to
    push it.

    September-I had a pretty good september and am on the verge of breaking the
    record for hits in a season. I also am in the 3 spot now since A-Rod got hurt.
    I won the Silver Slugger and A Gold Glove award. I also broke the single
    season hit record with 263 and got 1000 points for it.

    The Yankees offered me $14,600,000 for 8 years but that's not enough money
    for me so I took 2 years at $3,850,000.
    
    4th Season(MLB Yankees)
    
    April-As you can see from the number of Doubles and Triples that I have, my
    power has increased but my long balls aren't getting over the wall. I did
    steal 40 bases though and i've made the decision to try and get the single
    season record for steals.

    June-Had a vicious slump in the first half of the month with my average 
    dropping to .397 by me going 2 for 20. After a couple of days rest I got back
    in the swing of things and started hitting HR's and Triples.

    July-I got sent down to AAA on the 8th for some reason which really pissed me
    off cause I was going to the All-Star game and I didn't get my points bonus for
    getting there. This also left me without enough bats to contend for the silver
    slugger or Hank Aaron awards.

    I decided to exercise my option with the Yankees and come back for next season
    since i'll get more money next year.
    
    5th Season(Yankees)
    
    April-
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    N.Points Needed to MAX Ratings
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Since i'm constantly trying to think of ways to improve my FAQ I came across
    the idea of finding out how many points are needed to max out each rating. I
    figured this would be useful to some of you who read the FAQ so enjoy. I 
    should note that I added up all the points I spent in my RTTS career although
    most of my ratings aren't Maxed out yet(they're close though). The only one
    that is maxed out right now and therefore has the most accurate number is my
    speed trained by doing Sprints and nothing else.
    
    IMPORTANT!!!For Contact and Power I will include the points that I spent in
    total for both, since they are raised together. Also since i'm a CF my contact
    was higher when I started so these totals are for CF's though they can be 
    applied to all positions with some increases/Decreases)
    
    CONTACT vs.LHP/RHP=8000 points
    Spent=7229
    vs. LHP=3550
    vs. RHP=3679
    
    POWER RH=6000 points(I only trained my Power vs. RHP, which is why this 
    number is lower than the contact)
    Spent=4009
    RH=4009
    
    SPEED=3598 points
    Spent=3598
    
    LONG TOSS=5000 points
    Spent=4607
    
    INFIELD DRILLS=3000 points(Acc,Arm)
    Spent=100(+4607 from Long Toss since it trains Acc also)
    
    DURABILITY=5500 points
    Spent=3594
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    O. The Art of Base Stealing 
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I've been spending some time trying to figure out what I can add which would
    be useful to both 1st time viewers and frequent visistors to my FAQ. I came
    up with stealing bases!! Since i've become fairly adept at stealing bases I
    decided to make a seciton revelaing my tips base by base.
    
    IN THE BATTER'S BOX
    
    You should be watching the pitchers delivery to see how long it takes which
    will be the biggest indicator how easy it is to steal a base. If you can see
    how he throws from the stretch, even better.
    
    STANDING ON FIRST BASE
    
    This is the easist base to steal and also the most commonly attempted. I have
    found it most effective if you take one step away from the bag(Hit R1 once).
    Most of the time the pitcher will try to pick you off as soon as you move so
    be prepared. Once you see the pitcher's leg show any sign of movement hit R2
    to make your player take off. If done correctly, by the time the ball is in
    the catchers glove you should be at or near the bag sliding into your 
    successful steal!!!!
    
    STANDING ON SECOND BASE
    
    Now you should pay even more attention to pitcher's delivery than when you 
    were standing on first base because now the catcher has a shorter distance to
    throw. The second method from last year hasn't worked so far so I removed it
    from the FAQ.
    
    NOTE:You should always have a decent speed rating if your attempting to steal
    bases. My speed is a 3/4 full but I get close calls alot and I have good 
    timing. So I would recommend your rating at least be a B before you try to
    steal consistently.
    
    Much like stealing from first base, take two steps away from the bag and 
    beware of the pickoff because it is likely to come after you take the second 
    step. AS SOON AS YOU SEE THE PITCHER MOVE AT ALL HIT R2. I can't stress how
    important timing is for stealing third base. If done correctly you player
    should take off as soon as the pitcher moves and be 3/4 of the way to the bag 
    before the catcher throws it making it easy for you to slide head first into
    the bag safely.
    
    STANDING ON THIRD BASE
    
    I haven't successfully stolen Home plate yet but I do know the glitch in last
    year's game has been removed so you can no longer steal home that easily.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    P.The Art of Home Run Hitting
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Although i'm only 2 months into my season I can say with some confidence that
    most,if not all, of these tip still work in this years game.
    
    IMPORTANT!!! I feel compelled to tell everyone that your Power rating is for
    whenever you swing the bat. IF YOUR POWER IS HIGH YOU CAN HIT HR'S WITH 
    CONTACT SWINGS!!! It's not always necessary to swing for power to knock the
    ball out of the park.
    
    ROOKIE LEVEL
    
    Much like last year I had little success batting on rookie. I'm quite sure why
    this is but I just can't do it. It's 100% timing so if your comfortable with
    just timing the pitch and not directing it anywhere you should just swing 
    when you guess the pitch correctly.
    
    VETERAN LEVEL
    
    Although the level is higher, it's much easier to hit HR's on Veteran. Not
    only can you guess the pitch but you can guess the location too. Like most
    things this is good and bad. It's great because if you guess both right your
    more likely to hit a HR. It's bad because if your wrong(on either although 
    it's better to get the location right and the pitch wrong)then your plate
    coverage shrinks making it harder to hit the ball. That being said I'd 
    recommend a couple of things:
    
    NOTE!!!The first tip will be the same on all levels because it's that 
    important
    
    Tip#1-GO WITH THE PITCH!!!! I can't stress enough how vital this is to you
    hitting Home Runs. Almost all of HR'S have been hit by me going with the ball.
    There have been plenty of times where have I have seen(or guessed) that the
    ball was coming low in the zone and took a swing while holding the left analog
    down(and to whichever side of the plate the ball was coming to) and just
    watched the ball sail out the park. Wherever the pitch is going, swing with
    the pitch, not against it. If it's in the upper half of the zone, hold the
    left analog up. Lower half, hold it down. This tip will generate you the most
    HR'S out of all the others.
    
    Tip#2-GUESS FASTBALL EVERYTIME!!!Remember this: The faster is comes in, the
    faster it goes out!!! This basic principle is a gold mine when it comes to
    hitting HR's on Veteran. Also since it's veteran, if you guess wrong your 
    Plate coverage won't take that much of a hit making it easier for you to hit
    the ball. Most of the time the FB is their strikeout pitch or their best pitch
    so guess it and goodbye!!!
    
    Tip#3-GUESS DOWN IN THE ZONE!!!Most of the time pitchers will try and stay
    down in the zone as a general rule. As a result of this you will get the
    location right maybe 40% of the time. The key is to recognize what the pitch
    is and to swing at the right time.
    
    ALL-STAR LEVEL
    
    Tip#1-GO WITH THE PITCH!!!! I can't stress enough how vital this is to you
    hitting Home Runs. Almost all of HR'S have been hit by me going with the ball.
    There have been plenty of times where have I have seen(or guessed) that the
    ball was coming low in the zone and took a swing while holding the left analog
    down(and to whichever side of the plate the ball was coming to) and just
    watched the ball sail out the park. Wherever the pitch is going, swing with
    the pitch, not against it. If it's in the upper half of the zone, hold the
    left analog up. Lower half, hold it down. This tip will generate you the most
    HR'S out of all the others.
    
    Tip#2-GUESS DOWN IN THE ZONE!!!Most of the time pitchers will try and stay
    down in the zone as a general rule. As a result of this you will get the
    location right maybe 40% of the time. The key is to recognize what the pitch
    is and to swing at the right time. I should also add that the amount of the
    plate that you cover when you guess is the same as it was on veteran.
    
    HALL OF FAME LEVEL
    
    Tip#1-GO WITH THE PITCH!!!! I can't stress enough how vital this is to you
    hitting Home Runs. Almost all of HR'S have been hit by me going with the ball.
    There have been plenty of times where have I have seen(or guessed) that the
    ball was coming low in the zone and took a swing while holding the left analog
    down(and to whichever side of the plate the ball was coming to) and just
    watched the ball sail out the park. Wherever the pitch is going, swing with
    the pitch, not against it. If it's in the upper half of the zone, hold the
    left analog up. Lower half, hold it down. This tip will generate you the most
    HR'S out of all the others.
    
    Tip#2- SIT ON YOUR PITCH!!! This tip should apply for all difficulty levels
    but it really applies on HOF because guessing the pitch wrong or guessing the
    wrong location will almost always get you a ground ball or a fly out. I find
    it easiest to hit 4-Seam FB's(Because the pitch has little movement and the 
    speed of the ball)and Sliders(Since my player is a switch hitter the pitch
    always slides inside making the pitch easier to pull) out of the park. These
    are my preferences as you may like to hit different pitches. My point is sit
    on a pitch you are comfortable hitting and your success is virtually 
    guaranteed.
    
    Tip#3- TIME YOUR SWING!!! This is another very important tip. If you've hit
    a HR look at where the ball hits the bat. Almost always it is on the sweet 
    spot of the bat(Right in the middle from where the bat starts to get fat and
    the tip). There have been countless times where I guessed location and pitch
    correct and still hit a ground ball. Reason being I didn't get it on the sweet
    spot. This is still as important as ever on all difficulty levels.

    Q.The Art of Defense
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As I keep thinking of ways to make my FAQ more comprehensive(and after I 
    recieved a E-mail about defense) I decided to add a section strictly for
    defense at each position. 
    
    IMPORTANT!!For this section I will assume that you are playing Road to the
    Show and you only control your player.
    
    IMPORTANT!!In this years they have added the ablitily to move around the 
    diamond before the pitcher goes into his delivery. This can be a great asset
    or an extreme hindrance so use it accordingly!!!
    
    Catcher
    In reality this is a very hard position to play. Calling pitches, actually
    catching the ball. Unfortunately you won't be doing any of this. The only 
    time you will control your player on defense will be either when the ball is
    popped up by the hitter or he lays down a bunt. You do get to throw people
    out if they try to steal though.
    
    Tips- STAY ALERT!!! Although most of the action will be high fly balls, there
    will be some drag bunts and also some hits that you will need to run as soon
    as the ball gets hit to grab it. 
    
    BEWARE OF PASSED BALLS AND WILD PITCHES!! Pitchers can and will throw a couple
    of wild balls every now and then. When this happens make a beeline for ball
    and throw it the to the base in front of the baserunner to make sure he stays
    put.
    
    1st Baseman
    Who doesn't love those fantastic plays where a bad throw is on it's way to
    1st base and then the 1st baseman makes a great stretch to catch the ball and
    get the out. In the game you will need quick reflexes because most of the 
    balls that are hit at you will be hit hard, making it easy for one to roll 
    down the baseline. Fun position though. 
    
    Tips- STAY VERY ALERT!!! Since almost all the balls hit at you will be coming
    hard you won't have much time to see where it's going and cut it off. Always
    press up(towards home plate) so you can get a jump when the ball comes off the
    bat.
    
    TURNING DOUBLE PLAYS!! Since you'll most likely be close to the ball when you
    get the ball you should step on the 1st base bag then throw to second to turn
    the double play. If you try to throw to 2nd when he throws the ball back you
    won't be ready on the bag and the runner will most likely be safe.
    
    2nd Baseman
    If you chose to play this position then you should be ready for alot of action
    because most of the balls hit at you will require quick reflexes. Some of the
    balls will be routine slow grounders which you will easily have enough time
    to react and get the out. There will be a lot of plays in which hard grounders
    will give you little time to react and you must know what your going to do as
    soon as the ball comes off the bat.
    
    Tips- PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE SPEED OF WHOEVER IS ON BASE!!This will let
    you know how much time you have to make a play(although you should throw the
    ball as soon as you get it and not play around).
    
    TURNING DOUBLE PLAYS- Most of the time you will have 2 options when you try
    to turn a double play. The first will be for you to throw to second and then
    let him throw to first to complete the double play. This is almost always the
    better choice because most of the time you won't be close enough to step on
    the bag and throw to first and still catch the runner. The second way is for
    you to run on the bag at second and then throw the ball to first to complete
    the play. I think this looks better but your fielder must be fast AND have
    a strong and accurate arm otherwise you will have alot of errors on that throw
    to 1st.
    
    CHOOSING WHERE TO THROW THE BALL- I recommend that you almost always go for
    the easy out, which most of the time will be at 1st base. THE ONLY time you
    should try to catch the runner at 3rd is if the ball comes at you really fast
    and the baserunner took off late. I have tried to get the runner at 3rd many
    times and have almost always failed. 
    
    Shortstop
    This position is my favorite in the infield. It's very similiar to 2nd base
    except your on the right side instead of the left. This makes a big difference
    though. Since you have further to go to 1st your arm will need to be stronger
    and more accurate otherwise you will throw alot of errors(I know trust me)
    
    Tips- PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE SPEED OF WHOEVER IS ON BASE!!This will let
    you know how much time you have to make a play(although you should throw the
    ball as soon as you get it and not play around).
    
    TURNING DOUBLE PLAYS- Most of the time you will have 2 options when you try
    to turn a double play. The first will be for you to throw to second and then
    let him throw to first to complete the double play. This is almost always the
    better choice because most of the time you won't be close enough to step on
    the bag and throw to first and still catch the runner. The second way is for
    you to run on the bag at second and then throw the ball to first to complete
    the play. I think this looks better but your fielder must be fast AND have
    a strong and accurate arm otherwise you will have alot of errors on that throw
    to 1st.
    
    3rd Baseman
    They don't call this position the hot corner for no reason. This is another 
    fun position to play if you like getting alot of action because like the 1st
    baseman the balls hit at you will be hard and will give you little time to
    react. Also since 1st base is on the other side of the diamond you also have
    further to throw to get to 1st base making your arm strength and accuracy that
    much more important. You will also be the first to rush down the line to pick
    up bunts.
    
    Tips- STAY ALERT!!I know I keep repeating this but it's really important for
    these positions because slacking off or not paying attention could easily be
    a hit or they can sneak a bunt by you.
    
    TURNING DOUBLE PLAYS!!!The most effective way for you to turn a double play
    from this position is to throw it to 2nd base as soon as you get the ball. If
    there's a runner at second then you can try to tag him then throw to 1st base.
    
    TURNING A TRIPLE PLAY!!!I should note that i've only done this once but it's
    a great feeling when you do it though. To do this you have to tag the runner
    on his to 3rd then fire the ball to 2nd who then in turn will fire it to 1st
    hopefully in enough time to get the outs. You will rarely have time where you
    will actually be able to pull off a triple play but I just figured I should 
    note it anyway.
    
    Left Fielder
    You won't see too much action at this position because most of the balls hit
    to the outfield will be to the center fielder who has the most field to cover.
    This also is a fun position because you can make some fantastic looking plays
    in the outfield.
    
    IMPORTANT!!!I have noticed in this year's game you will get alot more chances
    at playing defense. I have led the league in putouts in my first season and
    see alot of defense plays.
    
    Tips- TRACK THE BALL!!It took me awhile to get used to doing this  because I
    couldn't focus enough to see where the ball was. This is nonetheless a very
    useful skill which you should learn because if you don't you will be missing
    alot of balls that are hit to you. You also have the assistance of the ball
    tracker(if you left the option on) to help you find out where you need to go.
    
    KNOW YOUR LIMITS AND WHERE TO THROW THE BALL!!!There have been plenty of times
    where I thought my player had a cannon for an arm and he actually had a water
    pistol. This resulted in alot runs crossing the plate because my player 
    couldn't throw the ball hard enough to get anybody out. Be aware of long it
    takes for you throw to reach the infield. If you misjudge then it could very
    well be the difference between a run and 3 runs.
    
    LEARN HOW TO CLIMB THE WALL!!!When there is a HR that you can catch the cursor
    will be red and will have concetric circles showing you how close the ball is
    (a nice addition to this years game). Use this as it's much easier to catch
    a would be HR now.
    
    Center Fielder
    This is my favorite position in the game(and also that of my favorite player
    Bernie Williams). Most of time you will be standing in the outfield while
    your teammates get balls that are supposed to get to the outfield. There are 
    two types of balls that will be hit to you. The first is a Fly Ball. These
    can be either routine or potential Home Runs. Routine fly balls are easily 
    taken care because they are,after all, routine. Potential HR's on the other 
    hand are the most exciting plays you will face. Believe me when I say there is
    nothing better than robbing the CPU of a HR. This takes alot of practice but
    once you do it you'll be satsified trust me!! Next are grounders that find
    there way into the outfield. For these you need to know where you are going
    with the ball before you pick it up to minimize the damage of the hit. All in
    All very fun position to play.
    
    IMPORTANT!!!I have noticed in this year's game you will get alot more chances
    at playing defense. I have led the league in putouts in my first season and
    see alot of defense plays. In my second year I won the gold glove although I
    only played in 73 games. It's official that you'll get much defensive play
    this year.

    I couldn't focus enough to see where the ball was. This is nonetheless a very
    useful skill which you should learn because if you don't you will be missing
    alot of balls that are hit to you. You also have the assistance of the ball
    tracker(if you left the option on) to help you find out where you need to go.
    
    KNOW WHEN TO USE THE CUTOFF MAN!!! I have seen countless runs scored because
    the centerfielder chose to throw to the cutoff man instead of going straight
    to home plate. If you aren't deep in the outfield(and your CF has a good arm)
    throw straight home or to the base where the runner is going, it will pay 
    dividends.
    
    LEARN HOW TO CLIMB THE WALL!!!When there is a HR that you can catch the cursor
    will be red and will have concetric circles showing you how close the ball is.
    Use this as it's much easier to catch a would be HR now.
    
    LOOK AT THE BATTER TENDENCIES!!!Before the pitcher goes into his motion hit
    select to see where he hits the ball. If the shift is great(45% or more) then
    you can cheat in that direction with some certainty that the ball will go 
    there. I should warn you though that this won't always work and when it 
    doesn't it will turn a double into an inside the park HR.
    
    Right Fielder
    I like to call this position the throw em out' position(Mainly from all the
    times Vlad threw me out at home plate). Your main job in the position will
    consist of you supporting the right side of the field. Most of the time 
    runners will try to tag from 3rd base if the ball is caught by you. If your
    arm is strong enough you should be able to gun people out at the plate and
    at 1st and 2nd(though I've caught someone at 1st once).
    
    IMPORTANT!!!I have noticed in this year's game you will get alot more chances
    at playing defense. I have led the league in putouts in my first season and
    see alot of defense plays.

    LEARN HOW TO CLIMB THE WALL!!!When there is a HR that you can catch the cursor
    will be red with concentric circles. Wait for last circle then jump and you
    should bring the HR back. This is a little more important for Right Fielders
    because the right field wall is low in alot of parks.
    
    As you may have noticed I only gave a general description of duties and tips
    that I think will help you become a better defensive player and get that gold
    glove. Remember though practice makes perfect and I would recommend that if
    you find any of this hard then you should play a regular game and become
    better at those angles then take what you learned and apply it in RTTS.
