When fielding you will control one character at a time, first the closest character to the ball will be activated to use these are the controls;

  • Touch a player's face on touch screen: throw to that player

If the player does not need to throw and is near the bases they can then;

  • Tag a base preventing any runners to stop running and if not on a base they are out by going near a base and pressing the A' Button'.


  • Tag a runner before they get to a base causing them to be out, by coming next to a runner and pressing the A Button

Fielding Ability: L/R Button


Before you bat you will need to set up the following

  • Which base each runner will go to by touching that player and moving them to a spot

While runners run, there may be a problem of character tagging a base if so you can;

  • Make any player retreat to the previous base by dragging them back and shaking the 3DS.

When running;

  • When the screen says GO! start shaking the 3DS to run.
  • When the screen says STOP! it means all players are on the preferred bases and you must stop shaking the 3DS.
