This is all really luck based but there's a couple things I did to help make this "somewhat" easier.

Go to the difficulty sliders and turn up the CPU settings for Batting Contact to 100 and then Batting Power 80 (somewhere between 80-100 is fine but it's all about preference and how you play). For player settings, turn up the Outfield Run Speed to 100 so they can track down the ball fast in case they are far away from the fence.

I chose the NL All Stars at Home and the AL All Stars as the Away.

Press Y to choose the ballpark before starting. I used AAA West but AAA East works too. They have small fences that outfielders can scale.

When you start the game, substitute Jeter for Miguel Cabrera and use R.A. Dickey as your pitcher.

Once the game starts, throw fastballs down the middle (doesn't really matter how hard you throw since the CPU's batting is in their favor). Eventually, they will start hitting home runs left and right. A small percentage will give your outfielder a chance to wall climb. All you need to do is press X and they should do the animation.

NOW, here's the important part. The ONLY way the achievement unlocks is if the outfielder ACTUALLY scales the fence and catches the ball over the fence. If the outfielder just jumps and catches the ball, the achievement will not unlock despite him still robbing the home run.

Once you do rob the home run with the right animation, the achievement should unlock a few seconds after the catch is made.

If at any time you get 3 outs, restart the game and try again.
