This guide covers all the various pitching styles and controls in MLB The Show 21

MLB The Show 21 has finally arrived to both Playstation and Xbox. MLB The Show was previously a PlayStation exclusive, but the barriers have been broken with MLB The Show 21 being placed on the Xbox Game Pass service. With that said, there’s a whole swath of gamers who haven’t had the joy of playing MLB The Show franchise and are trying it out for the first time. The game has a steep learning curve, and pitching a proper curve in MLB The Show is another battle in itself.

If you're in need of some pitching guidance for MLB The Show 21, then you've come to the right place.

This guide covers all the various pitching styles and controls, as well as tips and tricks for beginners or advanced players to increase your strikeouts in MLB The Show 21.

Know the mechanics
First off, it’s important to know the three main types of pitching mechanisms in MLB The Show 21: meter, analog, and Pinpoint. The meter mechanism uses, as you’d expect by the name, a meter that determines the accuracy and effectiveness of the pitch. To use the meter, simply select a pitch, determine the location, and press A on Xbox or X on PlayStation. Ensure that the top portion of the meter is filled, then hit A/X again once the line is in the yellow bar.

Avoiding The Middle Of The Zone
Players can miss the strike zone safely thirteen consecutive times before any damage is done. All it takes is one miss over the plate to allow a run. Statistically, it's just plain smarter to play along the outside of the zone. Even when behind in the count, throwing a ball down the middle is never acceptable.

Even without much control, targeting the outside edge of the zone will land as a strike half of the time and a ball half of the time. This doesn't factor in balls that the hitters swing at and miss. Target the perimeter on every pitch.

Find your favorite pitching motion
Avoid pitchers like Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, or Joey Lucchesi. Instead, try to pick a player with a safe and predictable motion in both the stretch and windup. This will make it easier to find your timing as a beginner pitcher in MLB The Show 21, and it will prepare you for some of the more advanced pitching deliveries like Clayton Kershaw later down the line.

Easy pitching motions:

    Cole Hamels or Cole Hamels 2008
    Shohei Ohtani
    Michael Pineda
    Hyun-Jin Ryu
    Sean Newcomb

Pulse Pitching
If you want a different kind of timing challenge without things getting too complicated, Pulse Pitching might be the right fit.

Pulse Pitching will begin in the same way other interfaces do, but this time you'll be challenged to nail a single button press for timing.

Power won't come into play based on your input, but you need to press X at the smallest possible point to get perfect accuracy.

Fortunately, you can see her the immediate feedback given by the game about how well-timed your Pulse input was so you can adjust for the next pitch.

Fluid motions are key
If you plan on using Pinpoint Pitching, be sure to move the right stick in a smooth, fluid motion. Don’t try to move the stick too fast or slow, or otherwise the accuracy of the pitch will be off. Instead, move it at a steady pace. You’ll know whether you’ve done when you see green lines pop up on the Pinpoint interface. is the top one among many marketplaces with integrity and reputation, supporting everyone to build their dream team in MLB The Show 21, and making the game challenging and enjoyable.
