World Series Baseball 2K2
At the team selection screen, press X to display an options screen that allows
you to change such things as the difficulty, weather, stadium, and time of game.
Reset the Count:
While batting with a runner on any base, have the runner attempt a steal. Either
go through with the steal or send him back. Quickly press Y before the view returns
to your batter to reset the count to no balls and strikes.
Before the pitcher makes his selection, press R. When the pitch is thrown, your
cursor will become small. If you hit the ball it will either be a home run, or
a very hard hit.
When you are up to bat with a decent power hitter, move the top of the batting
cursor to where the ball is being pitched. You will hit a homerun about 90% of
Bean the Batter:
After you select your pitch, move your cursor towards the batter and press Y.
After you select your pitch, move your cursor away from the batter and press Y.
Change Computer Pitched Shutouts:
Go to your schedule screen. Press X to get the list of games and start times.
When you simulate computer played games, and one of the teams pitches a shutout,
you can simulate it again, until both teams score. You can also play games over
when you or your opponent are shut out.
Tag Runners Out After a computer player reaches a base, very quickly press the
A button to choose the pitch type, and then press B with the Analog-stick in
the direction of the base to try a pickoff play. The pitcher will throw it to
the baseman. When the throw gets to the base, run towards the base to get the
runner called out. You may need to run in a circle or two, or not get it at
first, but with practice you'll be able to pull it off. The glitch here is that
the Dreamcast doesn't count the runner permanantly on base once he touches it.
As the player begins to stand, his hands will be off the base. It's here that
you want to hit him. Easy Strikeouts When facing the Computer, pitch towards
the very corners of the strike zone. You have a much higher chance of jamming
the batter buy sticking to the very corners of the pitching zone. Reset the
Count While batting with a runner on any base, have the runner try to steal.
Either go through with the steal or send him back. Quickly press Y before the
view returns to your batting screen to reset the count to no balls and no strikes.
Whack a Batter After you have selected your pitch, move your cursor towards
the batter and press the Y button. Whack! Right in the noggin.
No Ball No Strikes No Problem:
When you are up to bat, with someone on base, steal a base. When they call him
out or safe, hit X and move the analog stick Left. You will come up to bat,
you will come up with no strikes and no balls!
