CPU definitely throwing more balls... MUCH more balanced.

Got into a rundown, and they actually ran my runner down!

-A noticeable reduction in amount of fly balls missed by outfielders (both the target and slowing down before a fly ball is caught have been fixed).
-Tuned overall slider values to get a better stand alone game, based on community suggestions
-Turned down Home Runs, should see dramatic improvement in amount of home runs hit during game play.
-AI aggressiveness tweaked – AI will take more balls
-Throwing in the “Red” was way harder than the best “Green” spot so maximum strength lowered in the red
-In-game crash resolved when not opening the Pitch Overlay hud and then bringing in another pitcher. Will resolve late inning crashes.
-Added variety so that all fielders arm strength isn’t so similar. Now the better arm strength fielders will make a difference.
-Fixed the bug that was causing the catcher to disappear when switched with a DH.
-There was another bug fixed when substituting the catcher and the DH that would cause the umpire to throw the ball backwards.
-Added more variety in pitching by making the gesture be a little harder to nail down “perfectly”
-Fixed a bug where the base runner would JOG home (Sacrifice fly and ground balls)
-Tweaked the issue where the 1st baseman’s foot would come off the bag too easily resulting in a lot of infield hits that should have been routine outs.
-Pitchers will now walk off the mound after the 3rd strikeout in an inning.
-Tuned numbers to fix the fact that pickoffs were too easy, especially at second base.
-Increased the delivery speed of the animations from the stretch to improve throwing out the AI when they attempted to steal.
-Pitcher rotation bug fixed where users in leagues would have their first bench player put in as their starting pitcher. They could adjust the starting pitcher but never get their bench player back to their line up. This would eventually lead to a crash.
-The user was unable to send a trade when having nine pitchers or eleven hitters on their roster in a fantasy draft league online. That has been resolved
-Online - Menu - The Winning/Losing Streak will now populate correctly when viewing the Card Battle Leader boards.
-League settings changes now will take affect immediately.
-Audio settings get reset when going online.

There are a lot of other things, including some franchise stuff, but they are more minor and countless. I am sure you'll come across them, but these are the major updates.

- Ronnie
Everything looks good...only big thing missing to me is editing stances and windups for created players.

I know it is probally out of 2k's control but, why the heck would you release the Playstation patch before the xbox patch. We don't have any other options for baseball and deserve it first.

Such as what, Joe? What type of upgrades were you looking for?

I'm playing on PS3, I might be able to help you out.
