Hey all - I just picked up MLB 2K8. I'm still kinda new to the whole gaming world and this is my first sports-themed game (I've pretty much conquered Z:TP, MP3, RE4 and SMG). I've only spent an hour or so on it and feel like I'm starting to get the hang of the pitching and hitting. The defense and base-running is still totally foreign to me.
Anyway - I'd love to hear how to do everything in the game. How do you go for a double when you hit a gapper instead of just standing there on 1st base? How do you save different lineups? Is there a way to trade players between teams?
I guess I could try to pick up these kinds of things on my own, but what's the fun in that, when we have such an awesome forum here as a resource?
