Four new pitching gestures have been included, bringing the number up to 14. The devs also made some additional changes to the sinker gesture, “which is now more difficult to execute based on community feedback,” they stated.

New throws

In the quest for more immersive gameplay, San Diego Studios added a variety of new 1B throws from the ground to all bases, enabling 1B to efficiently make throws from all overstretch scenarios.

New animations

The devs also added 400 new animations and logic improvements focusing on fielder urgency. In addition, regarding the new disengagement rule, Pitchers also receive new animations that will allow them to step off to fake throw and potentially nab the runner trying to take advantage of the third disengagement.

All in all, those were all the new gameplay features added by San Diego Studios in MLB The Show 24. We’ll make sure to update this page once devs reveal more information about this new installment.
