Pick off Runners with no Risk
This isn't really a cheat, but way to get outs without risk. The scenario is you've got a runner on first or maybe on first or third. To attempt a pickoff, you throw to the base holding the runner. Unlike real baseball there's no penalty. That is, there's never a balk, the throw is never wild, the first baseman always catches it, and the runner never breaks for second. Furthermore there doesn't seem to be a penalty to the pitcher's stamina. So what's to lose except maybe time? Sometimes you get the runner right away, but sometimes it'll take 10-12 attempts. You can usually tell when to stop as the runner will stop sliding back and hug the base.
Picking off doesn't always work of course. It works better against runners with a high number of stolen bases. Typically this is the leadoff or 2nd man in the lineup. Furthermore, it only seems to work with runners on 1st. I've never successfully picked a man off second or third.
