Differently from how the Jumpshots work on NBA 2K23, your base stance will only majorly affect your performance if used with its default settings, as MLB The Show 23 allows players to customize their stance to a level way beyond its base.

With that said, if you are looking for a sure-to-hit batting stance capable of facing all types of pitches, the game’s best would be either Mike Trout or the Legend Stance 7, which heavily resembles that of Barry Bonds. Shohei Ohtani’s can also be considered one of the game’s best, although it may take you a few tries to truly get used to it.
