How to Hit a Homerun
By reading the book on Cafe Leblanc’s Sofa or inside the School, the “Third Eye” will be unlocked for Batting Cage. Using the “Third Eye” while playing the Mini-Game will slow the time, allowing you to easily hit the ball when performing a swing. The window for using the “Third Eye” comes as soon as the pitching machine emits a sound. Swing the bat as soon as the ball becomes purple after being shot to strike a Hit.
When aiming for a Homerun, avoid aiming on the ball’s radius. It is recommended to position the aim slightly downwards to cover only the lower half of the ball. Performing the Homerun successfully will give you “The City’s Hard Hitter” Trophy.
If you perform a homerun for all 5 attempts, you will obtain rewards. The rewards given will depend on the course chosen.
