This achievement requires you to break actual milestones set by famous baseball players. All milestones must be broken in one season of season mode. Only one player can be used to set the new records. The same player does not have to set every single one.

Be sure to choose a well-rounded team. I chose the New York Yankees but it doesn't really matter as long as you have good hitters and a strong bullpen.


Offensive Milestones:

73 Homeruns- I used Alex Rodriguez for these. He has legendary power and five star contact. Not to mention his wheelhouse area takes up just about the whole strike zone. On top of that, his special power-up makes all his homeruns no-doubters. Every time he steps up to the plate just connect with a nice power swing and watch the ball fly out of the park. Also use Big Blast when you have enough big play points.

4 Homeruns in One Game- Alex Rodriguez broke this for me as well. It's pretty easy. You should get at least four at bats in a five inning game. Even more if you play nine. You should beat this inevitably while going for the 73 homeruns.

191 RBIs- I again used Alex Rodriguez. He is automatically set to bat fourth in the Yankees lineup. Chances are that one or two batters before him will still be on base when it's his turn. Even better you can set it up so they are; just get some base hits with the top of your order and only advance the runners one base at a time. When Alex is up go for the no-doubt homerun or unleash the Big Blast. Hitting a solo homer will still yield one RBI for Rodriguez crossing the plate.

12 RBIs in One Game- This will also come inevitably while working on other milestones. Get some players on base and bat them in with a good hitter. I achieved this in my first season mode game with three different players.

262 Hits- This will take a while. It's best to earn with a good contact hitter that has a large wheelhouse zone. Just try to hit balls into gaps and get on base. Make sure your player has somewhat decent speed as well, in case you need to beat a throw to first. I got this with Derek Jeter since his stats match all of the above qualities, and after the first few games he had the most hits out of my roster.

9 Hits in One Game- Definitely play a nine inning game for this one. The key is to cycle through your lineup as many times as possible. Use the Big Slam power-up for this if you need to. Only attempt base hits with your players. Don't make any risky plays like stealing bases. Choose a hitter with legendary contact and a large wheelhouse zone for this. Have him bat at the top of your order.

130 Stolen Bases- Don't even attempt stealing bases with a player that has less than five star speed. I broke this milestone with Johnny Damon since he is the fastest Yankee. I move Damon to the top of my order, went for contact hits and stopped at first no matter what. I always attempted to steal on the first pitch to the next batter. To steal, press Y twice. Also, hold down RT to activate turbo if you have any stored up. Stealing second base is pretty easy. Only attempt third if you have turbo and the opposing team doesn't. You'll get thrown out a lot easier.

9 Stolen Bases in One Game- I again used Damon for this too. There's a chance that it will come while going for the 130 in a season but it's possible it won't. If you do have to work for it, only get base hits with your team so you can get through your batting order as many times as possible. Then get your speed demon on to first and try to beat the catcher's arm.


Pitching Milestones:

383 Strikeouts- Choose whatever pitcher has the best overall statistics for his pitches. Legendary, five star, and four star will all work. Your pitcher will get worn out if you use him a lot which will result in his pitches becoming weaker. It doesn't make a significant difference, however. I used CC Sabathia every game without him resting.

20 Strikeouts in One Game- Just pitch as if you were going for the "Textbook Perfection" achievement. Concentrate on throwing perfect pitches and stay away from the batter's wheelhouse. Also alternate between pitches of different speeds to confuse the computer. There are a minimum of twenty-seven batters that you can face in a nine inning game. Play one for the best chance to get this and be sure you don't throw out more than seven batters.

41 Wins- Record 41 wins with a pitcher this season. This should come while you work on the 383 strikeouts. I'm not sure how long your pitcher actually needs to be in the game for a win to count. I wouldn't use him for less than the first five innings though. You only need to use him for one inning out of three inning game though. I did test that.


Here is a written strategy of how i played every game:

Put the batter you are going to steal with at the top of the order. This way, if you are the away team, you can go for a base hit and attempt to steal second in the top of the first. if you get thrown out you can restart from the pause menu without losing much time. After you have achieved the 130 stolen bases, put the batter with the most hits at the top of your order.

Place the hitter with the smallest wheelhouse zone second in the line up. This way, when your runner is on first, the opposing pitcher will have less of a chance of getting a wheelhouse strike, also reducing the team's chance for turbo. Once you've stolen second, work on getting a base hit with your second batter.

You third batter should be someone who's not working towards any milestones. He should however be a good contact hitter who you feel comfortable getting on base with. When you hit with him, switch to your other base runners and make sure they don't run home.

Batting clean up should be the player trying to break the RBI milestone as well as the one for homeruns. Ideally he should have the no-doubt homerun power up and at least five star contact. If you have any turbo bars or a Big Blast saved up, use them. If not, just try to make a good power swing at the ball and it should go out.

From this point on it doesn't much matter what your batting order looks like. Only attempt base hits with the rest of your players and don't make dangerous moves to get to another base. You'll be earning enough runs as it is. All your trying to do is get through your order as fast as you can while taking the least amount of outs so you can get back to the first batter.

Now for your pitcher. Just pick the best one out of your bullpen. The more legendary pitches, the better. Four and five stars work great too. Throw as many perfect pitches as you possibly can and throw in an off speed pitch every now and then. Stay away from batters' wheelhouse zones unless you need to earn turbo for your offense. Your pitcher will have low stamina after each use. Feel free to use him every game though. Like I said, I did, and it made no difference. If you want you can attempt the stamina mini-games but I think they're annoying, hard, and more trouble than they're worth.


On that note, make all your game's nine innings. This is optimal for the maximum at bats you can get during a game, as well as the most batters you can face with your pitcher. After you break all the milestones you can simply simulate the rest of the season to the World Series for the "You are the Champions" achievement. If you want to check your progress towards the milestones, select "stats & standings" from the season mode menu. Then use LB and RB to cycle through your player's stats. This achievement will unlock when you return to the calendar after the game you break your final milestone in.
