I got 24, so I did get close. I really hated when the ball spun around when it came out. I didn't like this minigame that much, that's what Mario Superstar Baseball is for. 8)

I really do like mario superstar baseball. But I like Super Sluggers more. One thing i don't understand that the super sluggers was made by Namco and not Nintendo.

I got roughly around the 20's area. I can't really remember. It may have been 19.

This mini-game is a pain when I can't hit the frickin' baseballs. I get frustrated with this game easily. Overall, it isn't all that bad...but I don't think it all that much.

Does the screwballs frustate you mostly?

Oh, I loved this one! It was also like the first game I played on the Mario Party 5 demo. =P I never really got a lot though... maybe like 20 or 21.

I don't think I've ever hit all of the baseballs, but I got pretty close most of the time.

I hit them all once it's a fun minigame since I like baseball I can hit em easlily without any flaws it's a blast when playing with friends since they can also do as good as you and then it's a clashing match :P

Mine is usually 17. The Frickin' baseballs keep messing up my batting because you don't know when ths balls are going to strike right at you.

I got all of them. I like this game, very competitive at times. I don't think I've ever missed the one when the ball goes whirling around. Its noise signals to much.

Competitive?  :D

There's no competition if you have four players who can always hit them all.

It'd be a mandatory draw. D=

Yes competitive. I sometimes miss a complete and I'm hoping the other will miss. The people I go against aren't really hard anyways.
