Tournament Tips

The best tip we have for this tournament is to make sure you practice on the hitting and pitching difficulty set for your tournament (Legend for Fall Circuit and Hall of Fame for Exhibition Tournaments). Here are a few more tips to help you on game day: 

Diamonds in the Rough: Get a feel for all your favorite players and put the players you are most comfortable with in your tournament roster, not the players everyone else may be using. What works best for you might not be the same as everyone else, and could give you a unique advantage.

Roster Strategy: Keep in mind you can change your tournament roster between games, and your pitchers’ stamina resets. If you feel like you need to rebuild your roster, as long as the new squad is tournament eligible, you can absolutely adjust your players around to get an edge.

Friendlies: There are plenty of people trying to play friendly matches during the week to prepare for the tournaments. Join the MLB The Show Official Discord or the Battlefy Tournament Support Discord and find some friends to play practice games with.
