MLB 19 - Realistic pitch speed?

Does anyone know or have a way of finding out what the most realistic visual pitch speed would be? I'm guessing Legend with both pitch sliders all the way up, but not sure if that's too fast or not. I'm not really looking to make the game harder per say I'm just trying to play as accurate as possible.

I am personally using it at 8 for both fastball and offspeed on hall of fame hitting. It's quicker than last year on similar settings, but I figure I could adapt.

I've been playing 10 fastball and offspeed on legend. It is pretty challenging and I think best represents MLB IRL in a video game. That said, I think a real 100mph fastball probably looks even faster IRL

Yeah, I've played a few games on legend with both pitch speeds maxed out. I'm getting used to it, but it sure is fast.

Re: MLB 19 - Realistic pitch speed?

I posted this the last couple of years, now since 19 up the pitch speeds i would probably add 5-10 mph to it from the past explanation below.


This was based of of MLB THE SHOW 14-18.


At default pitch speed on all-star difficulty, a 90 mph fastball is about 80 mph visually. The slider system is a 10 point system (5 clicks above and below default) Each click represents about a 1.5mph+/- change in speed visually. HOF and Legend start 2-3 mph higher than default all star. I believe rookie and veteran start 2-3 mph lower than all star default.


So just from my experience over the years going back to 2011 until now.


All Star - Pitch Speeds for both - 7 gets it visually where it needs to be where 95 etc FB look visually correct.


Hall of Fame - Pitch Speeds for both - 8/9 gets it visually where it needs to be where 95 etc FB look visually correct.

Legend - Pitch Speeds for both - 10 maxed out since you can go beyond 10 gets it visually where it needs to be where 95 etc FB look visually correct.

Re: MLB 19 - Realistic pitch speed?

Hey Houston,

Sorry for intrusion, but it says your personal message box is full and I couldn't think of any other way to contact you. Can you personal message me?

I've got a question on a comment you made a while back involving Online Franchise for MLB The Show 17 here:
"Many unaware but SDS doesn't have it set up right by default. You need to out AL on Left and NL on right or your playoff bracket will somehow up backwards once u do bake the playoffs."

My question is, by doing this wouldn't it force all NL teams to use the DH and AL teams to not? I ask because the Online League Settings for the DH Rule only allow for three options: ON/OFF/AUTO

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Legend at 10!! You'll get use to it after about 200 at bats.
