    MLB the Show 19 is finally here and baseball fans are diving into the latest and hopefully greatest from Sony’s San Diego Studios. What is certainly unchanged from this year is the home run, one of the most well-known plays in all of American sports. If you’re here, you’re probably wondering how to hit home runs in MLB The Show 19.There’s no way to “cheat” and hit home runs every time, no matter what YouTube headline tells you otherwise. There are techniques of course that will give you a better chance, but there’s no surefire way.

    Hitting is never an easy thing in MLB The Show series. Just stringing together a few base hits in a row can be a tough task, and hitting home runs are even harder.For those that just want to mash home runs all day long, MLB The Show 19 of course returns its Home Run Derby mode, but that’s not what we are talking about in this guide. First of all, the difficulty level you have chosen will have an impact on how easily you can hit home runs.

    First you need to figure out what control scheme you like best. People will give recommendations on what they think is the best, but ultimately whatever you’re most comfortable with is the best one for hitting home runs in MLB the Show 19. If you’re dying for a recommendation, we prefer using Zone hitting with a Strike Zone camera angle. The reason we like this is because it gives you a very good look at what kind of pitch is coming at you because of how zoomed in it is. The Zone hitting gives you a lot of control on getting proper contact onto the ball as long as you have quick reflexes.

    Hitting home runs can also be affected by your hitting interface selection as well, as the game has a few different options. I tend to stick with Directional or Zone hitting myself, but Analog can also work as well. If using Directional or Zone, this means you will be using one of three buttons to swing, X for a regular swing, Square for a power swing, and Circle for a contact swing, with Zone adding in the ability to move the cursor for where you aim your swing.

    You may think that using the power swing is the instant way to get home runs, but that is not the case. It definitely is your best chance at hitting home runs with great contact. However, it is also harder to make great contact with the power swing. This will instead cause you to pop up quite a bit. Typically, the power swing is best reserved for a hit right down the middle of the plate or just above it so that you don’t get too under the ball. You can also use the regular swing to knock it out of the park in the right spots, with you having better chances of also getting a regular base hit or extra base hit instead.

    If you’re very skilled at the game, the best way to hit home runs is power swing using Square, and use the zone hitting to get perfect contact and timing onto the ball.If you combine those three things (power swing, perfect contact, perfect timing) with a hitter that as a high power attribute, that’s going to give you highest chance to hit a home run. That said, you need to be decently skilled at the game to get all those three things right on higher difficulties, especially online. If you don’t get good contact/timing with a power swing, there’s a higher chance you’ll just pop out instead, or just completely wiff.
