The larger-than-life baseball series returned with a whole suite of improvements It also brings back a lot of old features that fans of the series have come to enjoy. One of those features is the implementation of a Mojo and Pressure system.
If you're new to the series, worry not. We'll explain how both Mojo & Pressure work in Super Mega Baseball 4.
Mojo, Pressure, & Fitness Explained
Here's a brief description of how Mojo and Pressure work, while also explaining Fitness:
Mojo reflects the player's confidence and mental fortitude throughout the ball game. It can either affect skills in a positive or negative way depending on player performance. While a player is having a good game, their skills will increase, and vice versa. Here are the stats which Mojo affects:
You can see if a player's Mojo increased or decreased during or after a play, depending on the results.
Fitness is about a player's physical status. The more a player uses up energy by diving or sliding, the bigger the risk they suffer of a penalty to their fitness. Additionally, Fitness affects every skill in the game. However, these skills are more greatly affected.

Pressure highlights how important the situation is relative to your team's performance throughout the game and the score. For example. your down only 1 run in the bottom of the 9th inning and you need to tie. There are two outs, meaning you hold your team's fate in your hands.
The Pressure bar can be seen on the right side of the scoreboard during a game. There's 4 boxes indicating what the pressure level is. If all 4 boxes are highlighted it indicates your player is under high pressure.
Pressure strengthens the effect of Mojo. So if you're player has been playing poorly and their Mojo is low, they may mess up in a high-pressure situation. If you're player's been having a good game, then the pressure shouldn't get to them as much.
