At the top of the inning, the player takes control of the player at bat. The player must swing their Wii Remote when the ball comes across the plate. The force of the bat and the time it was swung affects where the ball goes.
At the bottom inning, the player takes control of the pitcher and chooses how to throw the ball in an attempt to strike out the batter. If the batter hits the ball, the computer then controls the fielders as they try to catch the ball. If the computer catches the ball then the runner is out. If the computer does not catch the ball, then the amount of time that the ball stays on the ground effects how far the runner goes.
- Experiment with different types of pitches and see what works best.
- When you hold the "A" button, you throw a screwball.
- When you hold the "B" button, you throw a curveball.
- When you hold the "A" and "B" button, you throw a splitter.
- Note that splitters lead to a ball.
- Sometimes the pitcher can accidentally throw a fastball instead of a splitter, which can be easily identified when a sudden red exclamation mark appears on their head.
- Experimenting with speed is also crucial, as light swings can produce from 56 mph to 65 mph, medium swings can produce from 66 mph to 86 mph, and hard throws can produce from 87 mph to 100 mph.
- You can also change the direction of the pitch by continuously pressing the right or left button for about 3 seconds, and then pitching
- Note that this leads to a "Ball".
- Pressing the 2 button will change it to an underhanded pitch.

- Masters and Champions can easily predict when and what the user will throw. In this case, be very creative on your throws.
- You can bunt by simply keeping your Wii remote horizontally while batting. It does not work every time, unfortunately.
When you start playing against the first team (team Elisa), while progressing you have to play the same team 8 more times, each with a different Mii pitching. Then one at a time, the first team's Miis are replaced by the Miis of the next team. This goes on until Team Sakura.
Types of Plays
- Strike-out: Player or CPU has not hit the baseball in 3 throws.
- Out: Player or CPU has hit the ball, but has been caught by the opposing team.
- Foul Ball: The player has hit the ball, but it has not reached the main pitch.
- Ball-four: The pitcher has thrown four "Balls", which is equivalent for a batter to reach a "Single".
- Single: The batter has hit the ball enough to run a single base (approximately half the distance of the entire green area).
- Double: The batter has hit the ball enough to run a single base (approximately the distance of the entire green area).
- Ground Rule Double: The batter has hit the ball, and it hasn't been picked up by the opposing team for at least 20 seconds (most likely the rarest play in the game).
- Triple: The batter has hit the ball enough to run a single base (this is very rare to achieve as you need the ball to hit the wall and/or land in a place where it takes over 9 seconds for the outfielders to get the ball).
- Home Run: The batter has hit the ball far enough to run all the bases. This means to hit the ball into the audience or beyond the ad-boards.
- Out-of-the-Park: The batter has hit the ball far enough to run all the bases. This means to hit the ball out from the stadium.
