After toggling the setting off, we recommend that you now head to Offense in order to pick your preferred Baserunning Interface. Among the available options, our main recommendation will be the Analog Select interface.

Once selected, you will be able to command individual baserunners by selecting the players with the left stick and then pressing either R2 (PS4/PS5), RT (XBOX). or ZR (Nintendo Switch). You will also be able to command all runners to hold by pressing L1/LB/L. If you wish to have them all attack the bases, you can command them to do so by holding R1/RB/R.
