I know this has been discussed at length and there is no concrete evidence as to whether they stay the same (activated / deactivated) as the start of the round or activate / deactivate according to the changing situations.
However, I noticed something today when I was playing 5.8, with McMahon double WoH skills. He of course showed both skills active when the round started and with the boosted rating. Yet, on my first pitch, of my 2nd AB, I hit a single and the well known text “Great Hitting” popped on the screen. The interesting thing is it said “Great Hitting 392”. 392 is McMahon’s non-boosted hit rating 🤔
Previously, I believed that skills activated based on changing situations, but now I’m not so sure they stay active at all past the first AB of a round?!!!
Any insight is encouraged.
