Cheats, Codes, and Secrets
The following cheats, codes, and secrets are available for Home Run King on the Nintendo Gamecube video game console.
Press L + R when choosing a team in exhibition mode.
Hint: Easier hitting:
Start a game in exhibition, quick start, or season mode. Press Start, go to "Options", and set the batting aid to 100%. Continue your game and it should be easier to hit the ball because the batting aid is larger.
Hint: Free triples:
This trick works best with a man on first. Have the batter hit a ground ball into the outfield. Let the player on first go all the way home. If it was a good hit, he will be safe. Around the time when the batter has reached halfway to, or is already on, second base outfielder will throw to home plate. When the batter touches second, stop his running. When the outfielder's throw gets to the shortstop (who will if done correctly, throw to home plate) , wait until he tosses it home. As soon as the ball leaves his hand toward home, get the man on second to go to third base. If done correctly, you will now have an extra run and a man on third.
Hint: Bunt singles:
This trick will only work if it is raining. It does not matter if the bases are full or empty, but do not do this with a man on third base, as the pitcher will throw home, which results in an out. Also, do not use a slow-running batter. Have the batter bunt the ball. Because it is raining mud will keep the ball from rolling much. the AI will have the pitcher get the ball, rather than the catcher who is much closer. By the time the pitcher gets the ball to first base, your runners will be safe.
