Kind of Fun

I was a bit concerned when I saw all the bad reviews, but for $6.99 I rolled the. And you know what? The game isn’t that bad. Sure, there’s some weird looking physics that occurs with the ball and the players, and I sometimes need to restart my device in order to keep the game from crashing when I open it, but once going, the game is kind of fun, you can save in the middle of games so you can get in a few innings here and there without committing to a full game, and the representations of each stadium, at least the ones I’ve seen so far, are pretty cool. All in all, not bad for $6.99. If you’re not expecting too much, don’t worry about the bad reviews and take a shot.

My fielders can’t throw the ball after fielding. Just downloaded this

Glitch ?
Update….. May 3rd, still can’t play defense while having it on assisted fielding. They replied to me “ it’s fixed” but it isn’t . And now after making a few updates to current players on my roster in franchise mode it’s glitched! When trying to choose my pitcher and opponent’s pitchers screen before the game doesn’t have their team at all. It has my starting pitcher and then it’s a blank box where pitchers should be and title of it says rotation and I can switch it to rotation.
I think a great feature should be added in the [game options section ] where it could run a quick {clear cache } or something or reboot during a game so it’d save data and Probably have it available on all the other screens too while choosing what you’re currently doing.
I like playing classic mode too myself and being able to stack your team with legends when you go to add free agents. Then play franchise mode and win it all.. please app developers go through quick and make these updates.
And GO Atlanta Braves ! Lol play ball ⚾️

This game is crap. It’s unfortunate because it has the potential to be great but there are way to many bugs. First off, the batting even in easy mode is hard and even hard hits are still singles. The timing is tight on 6/10 swings and they all end up pop ups. Secondly, pitching is bad also. How is it a fastball up is almost always hit for a home run? It’s unrealistic. The worst part of the game is fielding. The ball can be in right field but the left fielder will make the catch, that excessive but I’m sure all those who’ve played understand it’s completely terrible, that goes for all fielding aspects. Waste of money. Wish they would update and fix things. RBI 20 didn’t have one update for as long as I had it. RBI 21 has been out awhile and I have not received an update to the game outside of a server side roster update which isn’t completely up to date either.
