Got this yesterday with the following difficulty slider settings...

User Settings
Pitcher Composure Influence 0
Pitcher Control 100 (this only matters post-patch, I think)
Outfield Run Speed 100

CPU Settings
AI Batting Contact 100
AI Batting Power 100

Play as the NL All-Stars (Home) against the AL All-Stars (Away) in Coors Field. Change the AL starting lineup as follows:

1. Substitute A. Cabrera for M. Cabrera (batting 2nd).
2. Swap the order of C. Granderson and J. Hamilton (1st and 5th, respectively).
3. Substitute A. Beltre for D. Ortiz (6th).

Though it's not perfect, this lineup has the more powerful hitters at the top of the lineup. As others have said, when the game starts, throw middle-high weak fastballs. Now for the most important part...

I robbed approximately ten home runs before I got the achievement to pop, and when I finally got it, I figured out why it took so long. I even managed one of the "wall climbs" on a scoreboard that Ahbooya61 did to earn this achievement. The rest of my outfielders' animations involved them backing up to the wall, waiting for the ball to drop, and then jumping up WHILE FACING THE INFIELD and reaching over the wall to catch the ball. None of these gave me the achievement. It was only when I got lucky and in the animation, the outfielder jumped onto the wall and leaned over it FACING AWAY FROM THE INFIELD and caught the ball when I got the achievement. I don't know specifically how to trigger this; I think it is mostly luck-based. Maybe the ball is hit just a bit harder than in the other animations. Good luck, everyone. Hope this helps.
