After struggling, struggling and struggling I finally got this achievement relatively easily using this strategy. While I can't guarantee success, my results speak for themselves.

First, everyone is saying lower power, etc. and that's true but you need to lower EVERYTHING! Every. Single. Stat. Also, do the "old, fat, short" trick, that is make their birth year 1960, height 5'0" and weight 300 lbs. Then make everything 25 or 0, depending on how low a particular stat could go. I know lowering their speed seems useless, but what it does is lower their OVERALL RATING which seems to help. Make sure they are hitting righty.

After making them weaklings, turn on Classic Controls. I use Total Control while playing games but I DEFINITELY hit better with Classic in this mode. I went from MAYBE 2 HR with TC to 8+ with Classic controls. It may take some getting used to, but keep with it. Make sure your hitter is hitting leftie.

Here is what worked for me using Classic Controls: Move the left stick in the 10 or 11 o'clock position and hold it there while you press A. I never kept the left stick it in EXACTLY the same position, but ROUGHLY the same position. Practice.

Now, play at Fenway Park. The Green Monster makes it harder for a weak righty hitter to hit it out of the park.

Not that it matters, but I used Dan Uggla.

Now, some may dispute lowering every stat to make their overall rating low but I could not beat Adrian Gonzalez to save my life lowering only Contact, Power and Eye. After lowering everything else, I beat him the very next try. I almost feel like making him worse made me better, (i.e. 99 rating Vs. low to mid 30's) though I can't confirm this. May be in my head or may be the Classic Controls. After doing this for everyone following Gonzalez I was able to beat the last 4 opponents after only 2-4 tries a piece.

I tried to literally be as in-depth as possible about how I did this because I know how HARD and FRUSTRATING this can be. Good luck.
