MLB 19- Anyone Not Hitting Home Runs

Im running a Franchise with the Yankees play every game, every pitch on HOF default sliders and struggling to hit home runs. Im 7-1 and crushing the CPU but only have 6 home runs in those 8 games. I used zone hitting, now switched to directional. Anyone else struggling to hit homers?

Re: MLB 19- Anyone Not Hitting Home Runs

IMO hitting home runs is harder this year. I also play as the Yankees on Legend default and while I'm 6-2 and only recently started hitting a few homers, my first few games I hit basically one or zero each game. All I can tell you is, especially this year, you have to be VERY patient and wait for the mistakes AND you can't miss those mistakes. The home runs may come in bunches.

Re: MLB 19- Anyone Not Hitting Home Runs

I started out slow, but the homers have started to come. Iím 23 games into my franchise and all of my regulars, except for Inciarte, have at least one. Donaldson has 12. I only use the normal (X) swing; no power swing.

Youíll get it, just a different type of reflex required for 19. In 18, seemed like as long as you got the PCI close enough with a power hitter it would be gone. In 19, youíve really got to recognize the high fastball / hanging slider, get the PCI there before the swing, and actually barrel it. I donít think I hit one in my first 10 games, but now theyíre coming regularly. Hit a long shot to dead center yesterday with Chance Sisco (~40 power) and even have a few circle-swing homers with Chris Davis (70 ish power). (HOF, default sliders)

I'd reccomend slowing the pitch speed down and getting your feel right before playing at your comfortable pitch speed. You can really see what the above poster Mightymaxxx said

Re: MLB 19- Anyone Not Hitting Home Runs

In a relatively small sample size it feels like lots of balls that would have been HR's in previous games are just line drives this year. And the balls that do clear the fence generally don't do it by alot. I'm seeing lots of balls hit on a line that just barely clear the wall. Maybe this is something intentionally done by SDS but it feels like the ball physics are just off this year. I can still make solid contact and easily eclipse 100 mph exit velocities on mistake pitches but balls just don't carry this year.
