Getting money in owner mode: If people are not attending your games,
you will have difficulty making money. Make sure the Fan Happiness meter
is high and you schedule Promotional Days occasionally to keep people
coming out to the ballpark.
Use the following tricks to earn money in owner mode. Note: Save the game
early and often. Also be patient, as this may take awhile:
Select a team that is championship caliber. You will make more money by
hosting big games. For example, good teams like Chicago, Boston, New York,
or St. Louis. You will make somewhere about $500,000 for each playoff
Turn off injuries, suspensions, and computer trades. This makes simulating
a whole season much faster.
Use the money that is initially in your bank to purchase merchandise
stands and concessions. The more revenue you stream in, the more chance
you have to gain money in the future. Spend all your starting money
(remember promotion days) quickly, as you will go into the negatives
Never let your team have a losing year. That is the easiest way to get
into a huge hole. In fact, make sure you go deep into the playoffs in the
first few years.
Keep your ticket prices at default for the unimportant games early in the
season; perhaps even lower them a bit early in the season to get people
through the door. In crucial September games and the playoffs, raise them
to a reasonably high level. Fan satisfaction is higher then, and they are
willing to pay more.
After the postseason, spend all the money that you have earned on ballpark
upgrades (mostly seating capacity). The more seats, the more money you
Turn off fair trades. Check your rosters after the first few seasons to
get rid of old overpriced players for cheap youngsters. You can even edit
young 20 to 22 year olds in rosters.
When you start owner mode, turn off "Injuries" and "Suspensions" so that
your starting lineup will not be disturbed throughout the season. Set the
budget to "Large". Start a season with a team with a small payroll (for
example, the Minnesota Twins), or you could spend more time trading away
all the big salaries (for example, the New York Yankees). Before you start
the season, lower your ticket prices slightly. Your attendance will
average slightly over 10,000 at first. Also, buy the first "Seating
Capacity" upgrade so that your capacity is 25,000. Use the $1 million you
have remaining and buy some concessions. Trade away your high priced
players (anyone making over $1 million) and either sign lower paid players
or call up players from your farm teams. Then, edit your roster so that
you are the greatest team in the league (first in pitching, batting,
defense, and speed). The players' salaries will stay low, but you will be
the best team in the league. Raise your ticket prices after the first few
months then raise them more during the summer months, and slightly more
during the playoffs. You should win the World Series if you edited your
players well enough. Take the money you made and upgrade your seating
capacity. Repeat this process after the year. Let go of the players asking
for more money, and just call up more bad players and edit them to great
players. Only concentrate on seating capacity at first. You will make
enough with ticket sales to be able to afford everything else in the later
years. After a few years you should have the best ballpark in the league.
Note: This trick is not for those that are attached to certain players --
you must be willing to part ways with your big names.
If you want a team with a good stock of cash, then follow these steps.
Start Owner mode with large budget, no suspensions, injuries, CPU trades,
and financial advisor. Then start a fantasy draft for both players and
coaches. Make sure that yoru team is first for both. Choose B. Cox, then
simulate the coach draft. When you get to the player draft, chose who you
want (not Dowd, Pujols, Thome, Abreu, or any other high-priced player).
Select in this order: Huff (1B), Mueller (3B), Soriano (2B), any
shortstop, Baldelli (CF), Holliday (LF), select the first four pitchers in
SP and two RP, then simulate. When done, go into "Owners Box" and choose
"Buy Assets". Enter "Seating Capacity" and go to level 2. Spend your money
on a pizza stand, prospect store, and your last $100,000 on promotional
days for your first, last, and rivalry games. Edit your players so that
all of your player stats on main menu (pitching, fielding, hitting, speed)
are at #1. For pitching, raise the stamina. For batting, raise contact and
power. For fielding. raise fielding to 99 on all starters. For speed, set
to at least 79. Simulate your season. You should finish with about 95 to
105 wins and $5 to 10 million in your bank.
Hit the batter: To hit the batter with the ball, hold L + R and
press Analog-stick Down . The batter will be hit with the pitch and the
umpire will warn you. Do the same for the next batter and the umpire will
eject the pitcher from the game. If you hit the next batter with the new
pitcher, he will immediately be ejected from the game. If you wait for one
specific batter out of all nine batters, the pitcher will not be thrown
out immediately, and there is a good chance that the single batter will
charge the mound. Note: This will not work if you only have one pitcher
remaining on your team. It may also bring down your pitcher's stats in
Owner mode and Dynasty mode. It is recommended that you try this with an
opposing team or in Exhibition mode.
Easy Homerun Showdown win: When the pitch is coming in, hold Analog-stick
Up and time it well. You will almost always hit a homerun.
Easy grand slam: Trade all fast players like O. Cabrera, Ichiro, and
Carlos Beltran to one team. Create the the jacob paterson player and sign
him. Then, put the fast players as the first three hitters and the slugger
as the number four batter. Have the first three players bunt. While this
happens, take control of the other team so they cannot throw the ball. All
of the fast players will be on base and the slugger will be up. Most of
the time he will hit a grand slam.
Easy MVP points: In dynasty mode, after simulating a season and
before you go to the playoffs, save the game. Then, keep reloading it.
This will give you a lot of MVP points.
Enter an exhibition, owner, or dynasty mode game. Choose a good overall
team (for example, the Yankees). Face a team with bad pitching and defense
(for example, the Rockies). Play on the MVP level. Go to the game options
in the in-game menu. Go to "Gameplay Tuning" and change all the CPU's
abilities (Contact, Power, Speed, Pitcher Fatigue) to the minimum (-50).
Change yours to the maximum (50). It will now be easy to complete the MVP
checklist goals (hit two homers with same player, steal four bases with
same player, hit a grand slam, hit a triple, strike out ten, pitch a
perfect game). Because the game is under the MVP level, your total MVP
points will be multiplied by four, giving you a large number of MVP points
quickly. Note: You can do this on the other levels. Under the Pro level
the multiplier is two, and under the All-Star level the multiplier is
three. There is no bonus multiplier for the Rookie level.
Trade everyone from your A-team to the Red Sox or any other team you can
get MVP points by winning a game against. Then, get eleven of the worst
prospects on the free agents list and set their stats up as high as
possible. Put them on your team, and set your team as the away team.
Easier trades: If you cannot get an All-Star or top prospect with a
player for player trade, go to free agents. Then, sign the top free agent
available and offer the same trade along with the free agent to have a
better chance at coming to terms with the CPU.
Tinker Field: Spring Training Stadium Three is in reality Tinker
Field in Orlando, Florida. The football stadium past the outfield the
Citrus Bowl, home to the University of Central Florida's Golden Knights,
and the 2004-2005 season Capitol One Bowl.
Recommended team: The following recommended players can be bought
for very low salaries. In owner mode, a team like this has a good chance
at winning a title . They are cheap and better yet they are young.
However, because these players are younger they will generate less money
from sponsors. Make sure you have some big guns like Guerrero, Rodriguez,
or Pujols to raise the bar.
