MLB The Show 22 – All Pitching Settings Explained

Here's our guide that explains all the Pitching settings in MLB the Show 22.

These settings are one of the most customizable settings out of all. So, here’s our guide on all the pitching settings to choose from in MLB the Show 22.

All Pitching Settings in MLB The Show 22


There are over five Pitching Interface settings. But before we get on with that, we suggest you change the Pitching View settings. You can customize it depending on the camera angle best suitable for you.

Mentioned below are all the Pitching Interface Settings:



  • It is the simplest and perhaps the best setting for the players who have just started with MLB.
  • You need to just select the pitch and its location.
  • Then, as you throw the ball, let the attributes of the pitcher handle the rest.
  • With a pitcher having overall high stats, there’s no chance of the batter hitting a home run.

Reasons to choose: It is perfect for beginner players to start with this setting. There are not many complex mechanics stopping you to strike the batter out.



  • Pulse Pitching is an extended version of Classic Pitching as it offers you a pulsing circle to throw the ball.
  • After you have selected the pitch and the location, you need to time your throw perfectly.
  • The smaller the pulsing circle, the more accurate the throw will be.
  • The delivery of the ball also depends on the pitcher you have selected.

Reasons to choose: This setting is best suitable for the players that do great with timing and accuracy. It is slightly more challenging than the Classic pitch.



This setting will remind you of old-school sports games that had a meter or bar to control the ball.

  • Meter setting can control the velocity and accuracy of the ball.
  • Once you have selected the pitch and location, hit the button a couple of times to throw the ball accurately.
  • Upon hitting the button once, you need to time the meter for the velocity.
  • Then, you need to time the meter to set the accuracy.

Reasons to choose: Meter Pitching is best suited for the players that can perfectly time their deliveries. Mastering this setting can help fastballers pitch their ball to perfection.

Pure Analog

This setting is slightly similar to the Meter setting.

  • As you select and locate the pitch, you need to time and throw the ball when it reaches the yellow line.
  • If you release the ball early below the yellow line, it will be lower.
  • While if you release it early above the line, the thrown ball will be at a higher elevation.

Reasons to choose: Best suited for players that prefer using analog sticks rather than buttons.


  • Although most of the veteran players love this setting, the players that have started with the game are understandably irritated by it.
  • Maybe because the Pinpoint setting is slightly more complex than the rest of them.
  • After you set the pitch and location, you need to make a gesture prompted on the screen using the right stick.

  • The faster you trace the gesture, the more accurate and faster the pitch will be.

Reasons to choose: This setting is perfect for skilled veteran players. But if you are good with analog sticks, this setting should work for you too.
