To unlock this Achievement, you need to rack up 25 strikeouts over all your games played. This includes franchise, exhibition, and online games.

If you are letting your catcher call the pitches, remember that you can shake off his calls with the A button to try and get a better pitch. You can always just ignore his calls and throw what you want, but you're risking a passed ball. If you have the Inside Edge information for a batter, the catcher appears to call better pitches and strikeouts seem more likely.

Mix up your pitches, and be aware that painting the corners isn't as easy as in previous years. The CPU batters make more contact on pitches on the edge of the strike zone. On a two-strike count, breaking pitches low and away work very well against most batters.

You can track your progress in-game by pulling up the Trading Cards screen from the pause menu. Cycle over to the "Classic" cards, and you will see your current profile strikeout total next to one of the cards.

The Achievement will unlock at the end of the game in which you pitch your 25th strikeout.
