New and improved features have been implemented for Microsoft Windows. Pitching
has been simplified from 2K8 to "2-step pitching", with "hold and gesture",
eliminating the third "Release Timing" step of 2K8, simplifying the motion
while retaining the style. "Meatballs" (mistake pitches) have been removed -
instead, badly released pitches will be less effective (fastballs will be
straighter, curveballs will hang, and so forth.) The AI's pitch selection was
also improved. (Players may elect to use the third step as an option, and users
may also still use the older Precision Pitching from 2K7.) "Influence hitting"
allows users to control fly and ground balls, improved bunting, zone hitting
feature, improved hit distribution, while the game improved fielding realism
and AI, with the ability to cancel a throw and hold the ball, as well as pump
fake during a rundown. A player can also attempt a "Quick Throw" which gets
the ball to a base faster but also increases the chance of an error.Baserunning
control has been simplified; a player only needs to hold down the trigger until
it vibrates, for instance, to steal a base. There are also separate "Steal"
ratings for runners in addition to Speed.
The ballpark realism has been increased as well. Players will move from the
dugout to the batter’s box and from the bullpen to the mound, warm up by
throwing around the horn, bat swinging practice, run out to their positions,
and so forth. Umpires, ball boys and coaches will perform their actions, while
vendors and fans perform and react realistically; for example, foul balls will
cause people in the crowd to jump out of their seats and try to catch the ball.
Stadiums will have their unique fan signatures; for example, Turner Field will
have the Tomahawk Chop while Tropicana Field will have the Cow Bell. Players
will react properly to such events as a walkoff home run, a no-hitter or a
World Series celebration. There are also 300 new Signature Style animations.
Rain delays have also been mentioned.
