How do you hit the sweeping curve???

this pitch doesnt even cross the plate most times but is still called a strike. Its impossible to beat WOH without hitting this pitch. How do you hit it???????

    Swing late. Like you're going opposite field.
    Swing late as possible preferably for the pitch to be on the outside of the plate is impossible to hit them all

    I swing as late as possible. Usually results in fouling off the pitch. If you're lucky enough to foul off two or three in a row, I find the next pitch will be hittable.
    Tap tap tap tap it in

    Foul them off until you get a fastball, usually after 3-4 I get a fastball. Swing late though and hopefully you’ll hit a bloop over the first baseman

    if only to foul them off was easy

    Easy answer is you dont.
    If you get a sweeping curve over the middle of the plate then you can hit it.   If you dont luckily the next pitch is usually either a normal fastball or a ball so you can walk.

    However if you see a curve that clips the corner you may as well not swing.  That AB is over

    I usually swing late and it still misses most times. I’ll get a hit now and then. When I swing way early it’s a pop out 99% of the time and foul so.... it’s basically luck at this point

    in early levels curveballs are hittable (sometimes) depending on the batter rating and luck. I have had many HR and everything below with them (and thousands of failures, of course). In the last 3 rounds of levels 4 and 5, forget it. It is almost an automatic out but, I try to hit it anyway cause even if I get a dumb fly ball, potentially the field could commit an error which counts as a hit (or double) for us. It almost never happens but you never know. Most the time is just a straight forward K. 
    I know that rarely if you don't swing it could be a ball and you get a walk, but it is so hard to let a pitch pass by you and not try to hit it.

    Bizarre thing yesterday in woh, Ryan is throwing me curve after curve, round after round, but I actually connected with one for a homer to send me to Snell....which I didn't get so lucky with lol
    It's all done with mirrors

    From personal experience in WoH regardless of pitch in the first 4 rounds i swing if its over the plate... curves for homers happen alot. As long as your batter rating is high enough compared to the pitcher you are facing. When i get to the later rounds of 5 the curves are a no go. I can usually tell by the pitches if i have a chance to win or not. If you get those curves in numbers dont waste your gold it aint happenin.. multiple times ive faced 100% fastballs on 5.10 cycle no problem first try. Then the next time through i start getting less pitches to hit. Sometimes the game makes it very obvious if its gonna happen or not. If they want you to win you will. If not youll get the curves.

    You can also tell sometimes if you foul a slider or curveball off whether that at bat has a chance, if you’re hitting a foul ball HR or hit it really sharply a fastball or a ball out of the zone will be coming likely that turn.  The slider/curve we do something with is a “hanger” and will split the heart of the plate, if it hits a corner then wait for 2 strikes and if you can move a runner over or get one in on a sac fly or ground ball try to make contact then.  Lots of times with a runner on first I’ll just take strike 3 to stay out of a potential DP.
