Here's what we learned about fielding in MLB The Show 21!
New Fielding Indicators
To keep players aware of what's happening in MLB The Show 21 when fielding, the game will have many new indicators.
This includes the following:
- Route to ball indicator
- Base for play indicator
- Catch ball indicator
- Enhanced tag up catch indicator
- Extreme wall catch indicator
- Rob home run indicator
- Routine fly ball indicator
While these will help new players the most in MLB The Show 21, they're still great for Show veterans, and they're all optional!
MLB The Show 21 will have "hundreds and hundreds" of new fielding animations!
These will largely be new unique catches including off-wall catches, fly ball catches, and more.
MLB The Show fielding can at times feel unwieldy, with players running circles around a dropped ball before picking it up.
To smooth outfield movement in MLB The Show 21, strafing has been added!
This will smooth out hits coming off of the wall, and ensuring you're in the right place for a tough grounder.
