Six Features that You Must Try Out in MLB Tap Sports Baseball 2021
MLB Tap Sports Baseball 2021 is quite packed with features that can appease any MLB fan. The main feature of the game is the ability to create your own professional baseball team with MLB players however the game contains much more than just that.
In this guide, we’ll show you some things in the game that can be easily overlooked but must be tried out. Some of the features that will be discussed in this article are ones that can even serve as means of acquiring bonus resources for your team. Remember that resources must be spent to purchase various upgrades for your MLB team such as individual player improvements, collective training upgrades, and even better players.
1. Create Your Own Player
If you are tired of relying on draft picks and spending plenty of cash and gold for new players, then you can just create your own player from scratch. This can be done by clicking on ‘Team’, and then ‘My Legend’.
Aside from giving them a name, you can also set their individual position, abilities, and specialties in the field. For instance, you can set their position during defense, their batting position, and you can also select one of several presets that determine their core stats.
After creating your player – or rather, your legend – you can now assign them to your team lineup. Additionally, your legend can also receive individual upgrades just like the other players.
You can even personalize your legend too by setting their: skin tone, body type, jersey number, batting stance, bat color, mustache, beard, facial hair color, length of hair, and hair color.
2. Practice Pitching
During games, you only control the batting part of the game. The half inning wherein your team plays the defensive role and pitching role is done automatically by the game. However, you can still experience pitching in the game by clicking on ‘Compete’, and then clicking on ‘Payoff Pitch’. From here, you can practice pitching the baseball.
The pitching controls work by stopping a vertical and horizontal line by clicking the screen at the perfect time. You are given an arrow that tells you about the direction by which the baseball will move.
The fundamental goal is to form a cross on the blue targets with the vertical and horizontal line. Hitting red targets and white targets will result in a bad pitch. The lines travel very quickly so your reaction time will be put to the test here.
