Once a starting stance has been selected, you’re free to modify nearly everything about it. From hand offset and back elbow offset to hand waggle and hips offset, you have tons of freedom to mess around with the editor. Feel free to tinker with these settings as often as you need, as changing your settings will have an impact on your player's performance. Also, note that adjusting some settings will automatically reset others, as not all options are compatible with each other.

Some batting stances are built for power, while others are designed to be as consistent as possible and get your player on first base. You might want to focus on perfecting your gameplay with a pre-existing batting stance (like the Mike Trout Stance) before delving into the editor, as this will give you a better understanding of what options work best for your play style and which ones you’d like to modify.
