RBI Baseball 2019 Trophy Guide (PS4)

Updated: Nov 4, 2021

R.B.I Prodigy

1000 total RBIs


This will likely be the last trophy you earn, to get an RBI you must score a run by getting one of your players home from your batter. This trophy is cumulative so all RBIs count from all modes (Excluding Home Run Derby) You will likely have to grind this after you finish your season unless you earn roughly 20 runs a game. You should play on easy and use a legends or all star team to maximize your chances at RBIs. The easiest way to get this is with 2 controllers and just keep scoring runs by allowing the batter to keep getting on base and not recording any outs in the field

Divisional Champs

Win divisional series (no game simming)


Start a New Franchise Mode on Easy difficulty set trades to unrestricted and set your season length to 52 games. You can choose any team you’d like and I recommend trading for the best players in the league to make this trophy easier. You cannot simulate any games so you will be playing all 52 regular season games. Assuming you make the playoffs by winning most of your games and winning your division you will enter the Divisional series. This game is best of 5 so you need to win 3 of these 5 games to unlock this trophy and advance to the League Championship series.

If you are losing in game 5 or any elimination game you can dashboard quit the game and try again until you win


Pennant Power

Win LCS series (no game simming)

Once you unlock the Divisional Champs trophy you will then be in the League Series the requirements are the same but this time the series is best of 7 so you must win 4 out of 7 games. If you are losing in game 7 or any elimination game you can dashboard quit the game and try again until you win



Bring it Home

Win World Series (no game simming)


Once you unlock the trophy you will have one series left which is the World Series the requirements are the same, the series is best of 7 so you must win 4 out of 7 games. If you are losing in game 7 or any elimination game you can dashboard quit the game and try again until you win


Home Run King

Hit 49 HR (beat the 2018 MLB leader)


To hit a homerun you must hit the ball over the fence. This trophy is cumulative and doesnt need to be done with one player. You will likely earn this in your Franchise mode but any mode counts (Excluding Home Run Derby) It goes without saying you should play on easy difficulty, and you can trade for players with the most power in the league. Two controllers also work for this trophy so have the ball pitched down the middle to maximize your Homerun chances.


Hits King

Get 193 Hits (beat the 2018 MLB leader)


This will come naturally just playing the game. Set the difficulty to easy and swing with the x button. All hits count from all modes (Excluding Homerun Derby) so any single, double, triple or Homerun counts for this trophy. If you are having difficulty you can use two controllers and throw pitches down the middle to maximize your chances to get a hit.


Strikeout King

Get 301 Strikeouts (beat the 2018 MLB leader)


As the pitcher you must get 3 strikes on a batter to get a strikeout. This trophy is cumulative so all game modes count towards achieving it. On easy difficulty the computer swings and misses at alot of breaking balls in the dirt which you can throw by using X plus the left analog stick up. If you dont get this by the end of your franchise season you can use two controllers and put the ball down the middle by pressing x and have the batter not swing at anything to get easy strikeouts.


Patience at the Plate

Get 131 Walks (beat the 2018 MLB leader)


To draw a walk you have to reach base from the pitcher throwing 4 balls in 1 at bat.

This trophy is cumulative and doesn’t need to be done with 1 player, so every walk counts regardless of the mode you get it in. The best way to draw walks is to never swing until you have two strikes. You can work on these while playing Franchise mode. If you have two controllers you can just have the second controller keep walking you endlessly until the trophy pops.


Rival Rundown

Defeat every team in your division at least once - Franchise Mode


You should earn this trophy will going for Bring it Home. You will versus teams in your division multiple times a season you just need to beat all 4 teams atleast once. Depending on which team you are below is the breakdown of the divisions. I used the Mets so I had to beat the Braves, Marlins, Phillies and Nationals. Play on Easy and trade for all the best players by setting trades to unrestricted to make this trophy easier.

Job Well Done

Have a player on your roster retire


Start A new Franchise mode set injuries to realistic and trades to strict, season length 162 games then go to the calendar a sim to the end of the season, then sim the playoffs and go to start the next season you will then reach a screen that tells you who has retired. In mine I used the Mets and Rene Rivera and Rajai Davis both retired after the seaaon.





Back In Action

Use a player after returning from injury


This trophy seems to be alittle bugged, what I did was start a new Franchise and start with injuries off, then simulate a few games and set injuries to realistic. Simulate a few more games and someone should get injured, once they are injured you will have to swap them with a reserve until they are healthy. You then simulate until the date of return and a message will pop up telling you this player is ready to return from injury, simply put them back on your roster and play 1 game with them and the trophy will unlock.



Fly Swatter

250 Fly balls caught

This trophy should come naturally while playing Franchise mode. All modes count for this trophy so catching any flyouts to the outfield or line drives (my 250th was a line drive to the first baseman so I can confirm these count) will count for this trophy



Force the Issue

500 Force Outs


To get a force out you must throw out a runner going from one base to another because another person on there team is running to the base they are currently on. For example if a runner is on first and the batter hits a grounder if you throw to second and get that runner out that is a force out. You should try to get as many of these as possible while playing Franchise mode as you will be playing alot of games anyway and will want to work on all these cumulative trophies as much as you can. All modes count for this trophy, but unfortunately there is now counter for this. If you have two controllers you can load the bases by walking 3 batters then have the next batter hit a grounder and have their runners retreat while you throw to home then third then second to get 3 Forceouts on 1 play.


We Have Contact

Complete a game (9 innings) without striking out against CPU or Online Ranked Mode


For this trophy you will want to play on easy difficulty and use a legends or all star team to maximize your chances of success you will want to swing early in the count to improve your chances of not striking out. You will also not want to swing at balls at these are more likely to not be put in play. If you are having difficulty you can try bunting the first two pitches and trying to get the ball in play that way. Alternatively this trophy can be done online against a friend just have them throw down the middle. Note: You can’t earn this trophy by winning via Mercy so try not to lead by 10 or more if you have the Mercy rule on.



Double Threat

Successfully Double Steal - At least two runners successfully steal a base on the same play, with no runners getting out against CPU or Online Ranked Mode


First you will need to get 2 runners on first and second base, now to steal press square and use the directional buttons to pick the runner you want to send to steal. In order to unlock this trophy both runners need to be safe on the play. It should go without saying you shouldn’t swing at the pitch if you are trying to steal bases. If you are having difficulty you can also easily do this with a friend in online ranked mode by letting them walk you twice to start the inning then letting you steal without a throw.



Beat the Field

Win a 3-round HR Derby using official derby participants against CPU


You can enter Home Run Derby from the menu You will want to keep the official settings that are already set by default and choose your player with Square. I choose Pete Alonso and crowded the plate to hit more homeruns. You must defeat your opponent each round to advance to the next round. Once you win all 3 rounds you will earn this trophy.



Leg It Out

Bunt for a successful hit against CPU or Online Ranked Mode


To bunt you have to use the circle button when the pitcher is throwing to homeplate, you want to time it just as its crossing the plate to get a drag bunt and a likelier chance of getting a hit. You should try to use a fast player such as Billy Hamilton or Trea Turner to improve your chances. If you are having difficulty you can try to find someone to play in Online ranked mode as the servers arent very busy for this game. This trophy appears to not work when achieved in Postseason mode so do it in Exhibition, Ranked Online or Franchise Mode

Secret Trophies

Playing Favorites

Set your Favorite Team and start a game with that team


This should be the first trophy you earn, when loading up the game it will ask you to select your favorite team, you can choose whatever team you’d like. Simply start a game with this team and the trophy will pop
