  • Classic: Just aim and throw the ball, with velocity automatically calculated by the pitcher’s own attributes.
  • Meter: similar to the field goal kicking meter in Madden 23 and the shot meter in NBA 2K23. A line will travel up and down a meter and users have to time it at certain spots for the best results. The first pass is for velocity and the second for accuracy.
  • Pinpoint: the most complicated but with the most precision after getting past the learning curve. First you use the left stick to aim, then the right stick has to follow a pitch-specific pattern while meeting two closing circles.
  • Pulse: makes the aiming marker a pulsating circle and you have to time the button press when the circle is at its smallest for the best accuracy.
  • Pure Analog: aim the pitch with the left stick, then the right stick is pulled down before being pushed up in the same direction as the left.
