    Are the patch notes for this one out there?

    I'm sure they are.
    Someone who d/l the patch can take a photo of the updates in the patch and post here. I'm at work, so I can't do that at this time.
    Universal Fixes:
    -Fix for the user controlled player, to make sure his starting irection has the correct angle and insures he is on the right path to make any potential catch. This adjustment should help with bad angles to the ball, which led to potental misses.
    -Fix for an issue where the shortstop wouldn't shift when using Extreme Shift setting(with runners on first and two outs)
    -Fix for player head tracking, during pickoff attempts, for certain pitchers
    Online-specific improvements:
    -Minor adjustments to check swings and pulling back bunts at the last moment
    Offline-specific improvements:
    Adjustments to the attribute values of road to the show players to balance regression
    -Fixes to clothing clipping in RTTS
    Misc
    -Fixes to subtle audio queues throughout gameplay: Music reverb through the PA systems/ Delay the strike out music to play with more realistic timing / stolen base music queues were playing after strikeouts
    -Fixes for two rarely encountered year to year crashes
    -Fixes for several consumer reported crashes
    -Various other minor bug fixes and adjustments
    Hopefully the better angle my player will take before I take over will eliminate the triples and inside the park home runs I give up on what should be singles or doubles. Too many balls get behind my outfielders because I fail to read the ball path well enough.
    Anyone know if they fixed the following......... Stance socks when wearing alternates and throwbacks? The Rangers red undershirt when wearing red hats at home? Can we finally apply chin guards to players that have helmets other than protective?

    I looked at a BASIC HELMET STYLE
    CAP and chin guard is grayed out.

    This has happened a few times to me as well since the first patch where they supposedly had fixed the fielding. For me, at least part of the issue seems to be that nobody backs up the fielder you originally controlled. The other fielders will literally not move until you manually switch over to them and tell them what to do and are thus miles away from the ball. Never had this issue in The Show previously.

    Stance socks on alts and throwbacks not fixed, neither is the rangers

    I would assume not...they never put the Cubs gold jerseys in last years game, either:
    Sleeve length in player edit is removed again. It was removed, put back in, and now it's gone again. Unfortunate because last time it was put back in it actually worked.

    Yeah but last year Russell Ramon didn't say on live broadcasting on twitch that there uniforms where a major priority like he did this year either. I don't even understand how they technically could not be in the game, jeez They won the world series. But I'm sure if we did get a awnser it would be something along these lines..
    It didn't make it into our production in time, or the famous license issue or the all time classic...next year for sure.

    Only WS Champions get those special made jerseys right so that would mean that in your Franchise lets say the Mets win this year the Astros would still have those jerseys.

    Well, I’ve seen the exact opposite. The other OFs are always coming over, but switching to them doesn’t seem intuitive. But I’ve not ever experienced what you describe.
    Two issues after installing the latest patch, one new and one that's been a problem for several days now.
    First the old: many day games in Play Now mode with daily rosters have middle of the night start times (like this Indians-Royals which should be an afternoon game but they have scheduled for 3:30 in the morning). Once you actually get into the game, they make 7:15pm the actual start time.


    This next one is new and pretty weird: Salvador Perez batted twice in the lineup and was listed as catcher for both slots. The second Perez seemed to replace the DH.

    Man, they are really cranking 'em out like there's no tomorrow.
    By May, Show 18 will be so tricked out Xhibit be like ''yo dawg we put a patch..."

    yeah but it doesn't do any good if they keep breaking other things with each new patch

    Play Now live or whatever it's called isn't working at all, really. No records/stats still, and last time I tried it was still getting opening day presentation. I hope they get it straight because it's a great option to pick and play.

    what's wrong with it? Rocket bunts? if that's what you mean, no. It will never be fixed, it's intentional

    Plenty of other intentional things have eventually been fixed when SDS finally realized it was wrong.
    I disagree with bunting being broken , pull down on left stick and let go of the triangle button just when ball is about to hit the bat . This helps deaden the ball just like in real life you need soft hands and good technique . Hope this helps you also don't forget the ratings matter as to who you are bunting with also

    How could you have never experienced what he described? The CPU might run in the general direction of the ball, but they never actually back up your user controlled player. If you dive for a ball in the outfield and miss, and never switch to the other outfielder, it will be an easy inside the park homerun as the computer will never go and get the ball. If he doesn’t get the ball and you cannot say he’s backing him up. It frustrates me. And fielding used to be my favorite part of the game, now it is totally weird and quirky
    He said that they literally never move, yet they move every time I’ve had balls hit into the OF. They don’t get to position to back-up, but they are definitely moving over to help.

    agreed. It's like the fielders became little league caliber. This is the stuff you would see there. Bonehead mental errors major leaguers only make rarely. There seems to be more of that this year.
    Hopefully the fielding fixes are working. Generally, I haven't had a problem, but once I did surrender a double on a grounder heading into the alley because I was initially assigned the SS, but neither AI OFs converged on it until I manually switched. Even that second or so of non-movement was enough for the ball to scoot far enough into the alley whereas had they just taken a step or two, I would've been in position to cut it off quickly.

    So rocket bunts arent as prevalent with analog as they are in directional? I guess that would stand to reason.
    idk if it's me or what but all of a sudden my OF are taking weird routes and simply not catching balls. not sure if it's the patch or not but those are my results
    One thing i have noticed in the few games i have played since the patch, is i haven't heard that girl yelling out "hey blue, cmon" every 10 seconds.

    That's no girl; that's Bryce Harper.
    It seems that SCEA's answer to the rocket bunts by the CPU now results in poor throws that pull the player covering second off the bag for an error. Before this patch it was fairly easy to roll a double play on a hard bunt at the first baseman. Now the throw pulls the player covering second off the bag almost every time. Just had it happen twice in one game.

    Nope she's back,seems she doesn't go to spring training games just the mlb stadiums.
    Still averaging two outs a game where I smoke a drive off the pitcher's knee or shin and it ricochets to an infielder for an out. Wasn't expecting a patch to address this nonsense, just venting :jpshakehe

    Just drilled a line drive so perfectly off Julio Urias's face that it ended up flying straight back to the catcher without him having to move. Urias is fine though, didn't even break his glasses

    For me...hitting the pitcher this year has been a rarity. I've maybe hit them twice? Three times?

    Do you hit many balls back up the middle? Hard to believe that hitting the pitcher rarely happens to you.

    I don't know how I would quantify it, but yes I hit balls back up the middle. They are typically just to the left or the right of the pitcher.

    It rarely happens to me, but what countryboy says about balls being hit to the left or right of the pitcher, I see that......would love to see the pitcher snag one of those.
    Just wondering, what would gamers think if a smash off the pitchers head put him out for the year (I play with injuries off, so don't even know if that's possible..out for the season), followed by another smash of another starter that put him on the DL for an extended period of time. If you have that happening twice a game you'd have nothing but a lot of your players on the DL.

    I've seen the no look spin catch by the pitcher on line drives more this year than I ever have.

    Man, I wish I did. I'd love to be convinced. All I've seen is the pitcher reach straight down on balls hit to his left, or right. I even did a bug report on it because, to me, it looked like a problem that was occurring a few years ago in the game when the pitcher would field nothing hit up the middle.
    Now, on soft hits to his front, or out to his left/right off the rubber a bit, okay, but anything other than that.....ugh. I hope I start seeing what you are seeing.

    Not related to the patch but why isn't there an option for compression sleeves for pitchers
    Sent from my SM-G950U using Operation Sports mobile app

    I don't believe that pitchers are allowed to wear compression sleeves IRL. So they don't have an option for them in the game. MLB is really, really picky about what pitchers can, and can't have on their body.

    Bullit your friendly neighborhood rules lawyer is back with another episode....
    1.11
    (a) (1) All players on a team shall wear uniforms identical in color, trim and style, and all players uniforms shall include minimal sixinch numbers on their backs. (2) Any part of an undershirt exposed to view shall be of a uniform solid color for all players on a team. Any player other than the pitcher may have numbers, letters, insignia attached to the sleeve of the undershirt. (3) No player whose uniform does not conform to that of his teammates shall be permitted to participate in a game.
    (b) A league may provide that (1) each team shall wear a distinctive uniform at all times, or (2) that each team shall have two sets of uniforms, white for home games and a different color for road games.
    © (1) Sleeve lengths may vary for individual players, but the sleeves of each individual player shall be approximately the same length. (2) No player shall wear ragged, frayed or slit sleeves.
    (d) No player shall attach to his uniform tape or other material of a different color from his uniform.
    (e) No part of the uniform shall include a pattern that imitates or suggests the shape of a baseball.
    (f) Glass buttons and polished metal shall not be used on a uniform.
    (g) No player shall attach anything to the heel or toe of his shoe other than the ordinary shoe plate or toe plate. Shoes with pointed spikes similar to golf or track shoes shall not be worn.
    (h) No part of the uniform shall include patches or designs relating to commercial advertisements.
    (i) A league may provide that the uniforms of its member teams include the names of its players on their backs. Any name other than the last name of the player must be approved by the League President. If adopted, all uniforms for a team must have the names of its players.
    1.15
    (a) The pitchers glove may not, exclusive of piping, be white, gray, nor, in the judgment of an umpire, distracting in any manner.
    (b) No pitcher shall attach to his glove any foreign material of a color different from the glove.
    © The umpire-in-chief shall cause a glove that violates Rules 1.15(a) or 1.15(b) to be removed from the game, either on his own initiative, at the recommendation of another umpire or upon complaint of the opposing manager that the umpire-in-chief agrees has merit.
    Even with this, a batter could still bring it to the attention of the Umpire Chief that he feels it is distracting if a Pitcher is wearing a sleeve. It is then up to the Chief to decided if it is a distraction and then decide on whether it may continue to be worn. Unless over ridden by a Doctors note (yes really a doctors note) saying that it is a medical requirement.

    I'm hitting pitchers 2-3 times a game.

    Sounds about right before mlb 16 i was hitting like 2 guys a game then with mlb 16 it got better was still seeing to many but more like 1 ever 3 games. Skipped 17 but now with 18 its back to like how it was before 16.
    I agree with this hitting the pitcher on balls back up the middle thing. It happens a little too often and they don't make enough plays on balls hit right by them.
    C'mon SDS. Next patch it time to get ''sortable'' in rosters for service time and by yes/no on 40-man status. Also in need, MLB news still doesn't work even though twitter does. MLB News still comes up for 17 though.
    I think I'm going to stick with 1.06, everything just feels right including the out-fielding.
    Quick story: In the top of the ninth inning of a 3-3 game I pinch hit for my catcher. In the bottom of the ninth I lost by a run aided by three pass ball / wild pitches.
    BAD GAME / GLITCHES / COMEBACK CODE !!!
    Whoops, I had forgotten to replace the pinch hitter with another catcher so I was throwing sinkers to a third baseman. Good job SDS!
    I will say the amount of wild pitches in this game is way too much. I literally am afraid to throw a curve low sometimes because I feel the likelihood will be a WP.

    I still look like an imbecile swinging at changeups, patch didn't fix this :D

    I've been locked up by a 2 strike breaking ball more times this year than any other version. Special feeling when you get rung up looking too.

    That changeup that starts in the middle of the plate and falls out is my kryptonite and seems like I see it more often after the update and the defense seems to have taken a step backwards. I'm ok with swinging and missing at the changeup up, I'll eventually get wise but the defense is just infuriating at times.
    I'm 2-5 since the update in my franchise.:y5:

    I've rarely had it happen as well and I hit my share back up the middle.

    same here. I've played about 30 games so far, and it has happened at least one time in every game. There is something pleasant though, when hearing that thud sound when they get nailed.

    Well, bouncing curveballs in the dirt should be risky. In DD, I realized that fielding at Catcher was important for that very reason. If a guy got to first, I was putting too many of them on third.
    But this was with really poor defensive catchers and mediocre pitchers. As I improved the players that catch and pitch, I no longer saw so many.
    And the reality is, I want that risk/reward of pitches I might not get to use because of wild pitches, even if they would be good out pitches. It also keeps me from just hammering away at the bottom of the zone with no repercussions.
    Did 1.07 mess up relief pitcher stamina upon entry into the game. I’ve noticed my relievers entering the game fatigued (about 20%) even though they were 100% prior to warming up. I’ve tried different approaches to warm up and entry but it’s always the same result. Given that I haven’t seen anyone comment on this I feel like I’m doing something wrong, but I’m doing the same things I’ve always done in prior versions of the game.
    Anyone else notice the lighting progression is a little wonky since the patch?
    It can fluctuate between batters and seems the progression is out of place.
    These were for the MLB Live daily rosters games. Which I know that mode is very bugged with commentary and not accurate win/losses, etc.
