Easy catches hint:
When fielding manually, a red circle appears to indicate the destination of a fly ball. Note: It will not appear under the Superstar difficulty setting. Place an outfielder in the middle of the circle. He will raise his glove to show he is positioned correctly to make the catch.
Pinch hitting for a pitcher:
Once the pitcher is taken out for a pinch hitter, you must pause game play at the beginning of the next inning and substitute another pitcher for the pinch hitter, who will be on the mound. The game does not check if a position player is being used as a pitcher.
