Hi there guys,

I'm Vincent and live in the Netherlands (just a small country in Europe) and baseball in this country is not as popular as some other sports..

I just come up with this game like 2 weeks ago and playing it since.. I did the success mode and the mylife mode aswell but since I have the game I only played like a pitcher.. (cause I found it very hard to hit the ball)

Now I want to start the game as a hitter but still struggling to find out which position I must take.. I was thinking about the SS or a 3e base.. Mayby you guys can give me some tips or idea's to start with..
Also I would like to know if I must do success mode first or just jump right into the mylife mode..

I hope you guys can give me some good tips and help this dutch guy out..

Welcome to the forum, Vinny! Glad to see some people outside of North America with the game!

As for making fielders, I suggest you do whatever you personally want to do. If that's making a SS or 3B, that's fine. Heck, you could do both!

Hope you have fun with making your player. You don't have to do Success Mode first; you can create a player from scratch in MyLife if you want.

Thx for the welcome, dishnet34!

Well baseball is not as hot as soccer or some other sports but I'm trying to understand the game.. The game is not difficult to understand its more the stats etc.

I will also buy MLB the show but that's for later... First want to understand the baseball world as much as I can ;-)

I will start right away with mylife mode.. You said you can do both?? How do I make that happen??

Well, you can't play both simultaneously, if that's what you gathered from my previous comment. If you create a player in Success Mode, you can import him in to MyLife Mode. You can also create a player inside of MyLife Mode itself from scratch. Those are some good options, if you ask me.

Named my guy: Vinny Champion and started as a 2round 3e base...

Just got promoted after a month in the AAA. Hitting 6 HR and having 12 RBI.
Just getting used at hitting.. Its a lot more difficult then thought..

I'm Assuming This Comment Is A Bit Late.

If You Have You Player Get Chosen In The First Round As An All Around Player Your Abilities Are Going To Start Higher Than Most Other Categories.

Also, In Your Settings Put The Sweet-spot Option To "Lock-On 5" And You Will See You Will Hit The Ball More Often. Lower The Number Every 5 Hours You Play Back To The Default (Should Be 3) And You Will See That Your Better At Hitting.

Hope This Helped!
