In MLB The Show 21, you will take control of the greatest baseball athletes in the world. From throwing 100 miles per hour to running the length of a basketball court to catch a fly ball, MLB players pull off some impressive feats on the field. Sometimes though, it doesn’t matter how far you run — the ball will be just out of your reach. Here is how you can attempt a jumping catch and record a fancy looking out.
While a ball is in play, you can make a defender jump by playing R1 on PlayStation or RB on Xbox. You will want to choose your jumps properly, because if you jump at a situation that you could have just run down a ball, it will likely go past you.
The style of jump you attempt will change with the situation. For example, an infielder standing still will jump straight up to try and stop a high liner from going into the outfield, while a running outfielder will attempt to reach further out to bring in a catch. Also, if you are near a wall, you can jump up it to attempt to rob a home run. Depending on your player’s skills, the trajectory of the ball, and the dimensions of the outfield wall, your jump will look quite different.
