Batting Center Tips
Remember Pitch Type Timings.
The timing to hit the ball depends on the type of pitch. Be sure to adjust to each pitch type’s speed and trajectory to hit a home run as much as possible.
Using the Safety Bat
If you find it difficult to hit the ball with a regular bat, you can purchase the Safety Bat which has a significantly larger sweet spot (sphere position) and is very easy to use. Note that points earned using are lowered so you may need to play more games to rack up points than you would with using the default bat or Master Bat.

If anyone is having a hard time with the batting minigame, make sure you’re playing the game at 60fps. If not you’ll have the same issues of not hitting it
Is this supposed to be a guide? Can you at least explain the basics?
Pitch 1 on internediate homerun is wrong as is pitch 4 on advanced homerun
So just tried intermediate homerun 5 times. The mistake is the first pitch. It is an upper left straight, no upper right
Either the homerun pitches are randomized starting with intermediate, or the chart is wrong
