Control schemes depend on the controller/game. Consult the game's instructions or an online resource for specific details.
Batting | 打撃操作
Move the joystick in the desired direction to move the the yellow oblong crosshair, the Meet Cursor (ミート・カーソル), in that direction. When the ball arrives, line up the Meet Cursor then press either B/Cross to swing the bat, or A/Circle and hold to attempt a bunt.
REMEMBER: The Meet Cursor's size and shape will vary depending on the batter's stats. Players with a low Meet (ミート) stat will have a small cursor and vice versa.
Bunting | バント
A bunt is where you don't swing at a batted ball, but instead tap it into play... Press and hold A/Circle to move the bat into bunting position.
Hard Swing | 強振
Press R/R1 to toggle Hard Swing on and off. When Hard Swing is on, the Meet Cursor becomes a small circle. It's more difficult to hit the ball, but when you do manage to get a hit, it has the chance to go flying.
Pitching | 投球操作
Move the left Joystick to select a pitch, then press B/Cross to throw the pitch, move the joystick to adjust the trajectory of the ball. If applicable, press R/R1 to switch to the other pitch for that direction.
