Tips:

Happ throws 5 pitches with 3 offspeed pitches. 4 seamer, 2 seamer, changeup, slider, and
curveball. His 4 seam tops out at 93 mph, while his changeup and slider come in at 83 mph. His curveball can come in at 77 mph. None of his offspeed pitches have more than 66 break,
including his changeup with 36 break. Cabrera hits lefties very well and has good vision, so you should have the advantage here.

The goal should be to power swing for the first few difficulties to accumulate a nice hefty active score before you to get All-Star or higher. Once on All-Star, begin contact swinging and try to stay in between the fastball and changeup. The changeup and slider gave me the most fits, but once I started to stay back then I was good to go. You should still be able to foul off fastballs if you stay up back too.

I always recommend zone, especially for COTW. Start your PCI in the middle and react
accordingly. Remember for every 5 hits, you get a 2000 x 2 multiplier and for every 2 linedrives you get a 2000 x 2 multiplier. For every 24 hits, you will also get a 2000 x 2 multiplier, although you may only seen that a few times during your session.

COTW is a great way to get practice in before starting games and its another way to earn stubs and rewards. So make sure to give it a try and see where you can place! Good Luck!
