Wondering what is the best pitching animation to use in MLB The Show 22 Road to the Show? We've got you covered.

MLB The Show 22 is out now and returning this year, of course, is the ability to create multiple ballplayers in RTTS. If you’re looking to make it into the big leagues as a pitcher, you’re going to need a successful repertoire of pitches as well as a pretty effective windup. Here's a breakdown of the best pitching animation to use in MLB The Show 22.

Best Pitching Style to Use in Road to the Show

Ultimately, one of, if not the best Pitching Style to use in MLB The Show 22 has to be Generic Windup 7.

While Generic Windup 22 used to be the go-to in last year's game, this newer submarine style is simply filthy and OP to try and square up against.

Although you can make your own windup, chances are, others won't have seen your windup if you choose one of the generic ones.

Unlike last year’s game, it’s also much easier to change your selection of pitches. You can simply do so in the "Loadout" portion of the My Ballplayer menu when in the clubhouse (My Player). It’s as easy as navigating to the right side of the screen and selecting your pitches, of which you can have up to five.

MLB The Show 22 does a pretty good job of breaking down what each pitch in the game does along with the type of movement it has.

When you begin your career, you’ll probably start off with the three most basic pitches: fastball, curveball and changeup. This is a solid core group of pitches but, of course, you can personalize it to whatever fits the type of pitch style you want to play with.
