You have to have the correct permissions to do it, admins and moderators can. If this place gets big enough I'll need some help doing that :)

Yes, you did a good job on the Wiki page, thanks. I was beginning to list each ability as its own page as I'm sure there are many other intangibles about the abilities like how/when/where to get them, price of it (using experience points) and special features

I'm checking out the wiki, great stuff there. hope we can get some more folks here too because I'm sure there will be some things that the wiki can't explain on its own

You missed Trash Talk. It's an ability that unsettles batters that I've only seen in characters created automatically after you draft them in Season mode.

The pitcher's four seamer will have some occasional arm-side run, which is considered bad in Japanese baseball, hence a red ability.
