Hitting is arguably one of the most difficult mechanics to nail in MLB: The Show 23, and your camera angle plays a huge part in that; you need the best view of the ball at all times.

Your mileage may vary, but we'd recommend using the Strike Zone angle for this, as it gives you the best view from the hitter's perspective as the opposing pitcher throws the ball so you can hit with perfect timing.

When it comes to the Hitting Interface in MLB: The Show 23, Zone is the clear winner because it gives you more control over the ball and the bat by allowing you to control the Plate Coverage Indicator (PCI), which works especially well in those cases where the hitting window is small.

This is another YMMV case, though, so it's worth experimenting and seeing what jives with you best. If you prefer an option that's more simple, then Directional may be better, and Timing is the sweet spot in the middle.

Other Hitting Settings in MLB The Show 23

Another setting to personalize is how you hit the ball. The Hitting Input decides whether you use the sticks or buttons. If you want your hits to feel more powerful and immersive, then Analog Stride is for you as you pull the stick back and push it forward again to swing. This gives a lot more control than the other stick option, Analog Flick.

Note that there's a learning curve when using Analog options with the Zone Hitting Interface, so if you can't get it down, Buttons may be the way to go.
