MLB 13 The Show dev blog shows you how to hit

MLB 13 The Show's community manager and designer, Ramone Russell, explains the game's new hitting modes and features in the latest dev blog, posted by PlayStation Blog.

The video above shows the game's new Beginner Mode to help new or inexperienced players learn the basics of hitting. Beginner Mode allows players to set specific levels that will control pitch speed, direction and more.

"The goal here is to teach users," Russell said. "We don't want to just make the game easier. We want you to learn the fundamentals of the game and develop the tools for success, like discipline, pitch recognition and timing."

MLB 13 The Show is currently slated for release March 5 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Read our hands-on impressions here.
