PastaPadre.com has its second hands-on preview of MLB 09: The Show up.
An excerpt: "Users can draw walks if they are patient. Seemed to happen a little more frequently than last year. Wearing pitchers down and working the count is critical to success.
Over 700 new game play animations, over 400 new presentation animations, and over 150 new personalized pitcher and batter animations. There is a new tag system with over 100 tags to cover all situations. Obviously I didn't get to see many of these but the animations that I did witness were all really natural and looked good. Having so many new ones should help to keep the game feeling fresh."
