9 Innings: Pro Baseball has become possibly the premiere baseball game for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. 9 Innings: Pro Baseball is the only baseball game that is fully licensed by the Major League Baseball Players’ Association, meaning that this is the only baseball game that has real teams, real team names, and even real pictures of the players. Read on for the beginner’s guide to 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2013!
At the beginning of the game, you’ll do a tutorial, which might be hard to understand due to the broken English that the game uses, but it is still worth it to learn how everything works in the game. The first place you will go is to “start game”. The “recent game” button lets you continue a match that you had started previously, but if you are not in the middle of a game, the button will do absolutely nothing. League mode is the main game mode that you will play in, and this is where you can choose how long of a season to play – anywhere from a full season to just the playoffs.
Once you pick your team, you can choose how everything is done – you can bat and pitch either manually or let the game do it for you. While the game is in automatic mode, you will earn zero bonuses for anything that goes on, but the game will go by much more quickly.
When batting, you will have three buttons on the opposite side of the plate as the batter. The left and right button are the bunt buttons, and the center button is the button to swing the bat. You can either tap it, or you can swipe upwards on it for an uppercut swing, or swipe downwards for a ground-ball swing. All three types of swings have their uses.
Tap on the card of the batter who is currently in the box and you will get to see all of his statistics, which will tell you how good of a power hitter and contact hitter he is, how good his eye in the batter’s box is, and even what his speed and defense are rated at.
