Managing Check Swings in MLB The Show 23

Now, one cannot simply stop their check swing in MLB The Show 23 if one has already begun. However, you can certainly manage how frequently you fall back on it. If you keep running into the issue of your batter checking their swing, it’s almost certainly because you keep tapping the swing button instead of fully pressing it. The quick tap can result in a number of animations, but it will always result in not actually fully swinging the bat.

That first little flinch is a result of the quickest of button taps, while the second animation is the result of the more traditional check swing. Fittingly, it came on a pitch just outside of the strike zone as well, which is when you typically want to check your swing. However, if you’re not intending to do so, the fix is simple: just don’t tap the button.

As it happens, this swing resulted in the desired outcome: a home run. Can you imagine if you had let that pitch go by in an actual game because you only tapped the swing button instead? Unforgiveable. That said, there is often a balance to strike. The check swing is an important component of the game, and should be used when a particular pitch calls for it. Just don’t make the mistake of utilizing it accidentally.
