The competitive MLB The Show 22 esports season begins with the Summer Circuit.
With an updated format, a new platform to play on, and additional chances to win, there are more reasons than ever to test your skills and show off your Diamond Dynasty squad. The Summer Circuit gives eligible players* a shot to win millions of StubsTM, a share of the $25,000 prize pool, autographed Shohei Ohtani items, and more.
The competitive cross-platform MLB The Show 22 Summer Circuit is available to those 13+ in the U.S. and Canada, across all PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms. This year, the Summer Circuit has four open qualifiers. The top 16 players who qualify from each qualifier will later compete in the Grand Finals for $25,000 in total cash prizing and more.
Those who don’t place in the top 16 on their first entry can try again in any of the remaining Qualifiers.
On Day One of each Summer Circuit Qualifier, all players will compete in an open ladder format. Competitors can queue up at any time within an eight-hour window, but must complete six three-inning games for their score to count. Each win earns a player a point and each loss loses a player a point. The top 64 players (plus ties) will move on to Day Two.
On Day Two, the top 64 players (plus ties) will compete in a single-elimination bracket playing nine-inning games. Every player who reaches Day 2 will receive at least 11,000 MLB The Show Stubs.
The Grand Finals will take place from June 18-19. Day One will feature a single-elimination bracket format with the top 64 players from the four Open Qualifiers.
On Day Two, watch the final four competitors play on the San Diego Studio Twitch channel with 1st place taking home $15,000!
The top 3 players will also win a signed Shohei Ohtani jersey and baseball set, a gift voucher to the MLB Shop, and an authentic baseball used in the MLB 2022 Home Run Derby.
