Fortunately, the game has settings for gamers of all levels. So even if you never hit a tee-ball in your life, you’ll be hitting pop flies to centerfield before you know it with the right layout. If you want to work your way to baseball greatness, these are the best hitting settings in MLB The Show 23.

Hitting Settings in MLB The Show 23 Explained

When you start the game, you will face three options when it comes to hitting settings so choose wisely:

  • Zone: the default option; best for average gamers capable of tracking more accurately where the ball will hit
  • Directional: better for new players; easier to gauge the area of the ball as the zone can be moved anywhere
  • Timing: great for total beginners as the location of the ball is not so important

Choose the settings type according to your skill level or preferred gaming style, but that’s not all—you can tweak the hitting settings even further for the best results.
