How to Not Check Swing in MLB The Show 21

Checking your swing in baseball is a term applied for when players stop their swing halfway before it crosses the plate. This is done in order to allow for players to change their mind a split second before finishing their full swing. There are various reasons to do this: feeling as if they won’t be getting good contact, if the ball’s outside of the strike zone, etc.

Normally, in MLB The Show 21, players can check swing by tapping the swing button rather than holding it down. They have to tap it at just the right time as the ball is approaching the plate in order to do it correctly. 

Unfortunately, there are no ways to stop check swings in the game. Players can only work on preventing from performing unwanted check swings in the first place.
