April 30th, 2021

New 1st Inning Program Content

The 1st Inning Program is well underway and MLB The Show 21 has introduced new content to help you make the most of your play. We have introduced the NEW LEGEND Huston Street Player Program, 1st Inning Umbrella Conquest Map, and the Prospects collection all of which will earn you XP in the 1st Inning Program towards the ultimate goal of adding a 1st Inning Boss to your roster, along with packs, Stubs & more. Remember, this year Innings Programs will only be available for a limited time so be sure to complete the 1st Inning Program by May 7th before the 2nd Inning Program begins.

Battle Royale: Two New Rewards

MLB The Show 21’s Battle Royale (BR) is giving you more ways to earn rewards than ever before. We all know that going 12-0 will earn you a Flawless Rewards choice pack. Now, earning 50 BR points in a season will earn you a choice pack to select one of the Flawless Rewards as well.

In addition to the already stellar lineup of Battle Royale Rewards, we have added Garret Anderson and George Brett to the Flawless choice pack. So dust off your cleats and hit the field in MLB The Show 21 Battle Royale for a chance to add some true talent to your roster.

1st Roster Update of the Year

Roster Attributes Updates adjust the Live Series player items’ attributes based on their real-world performance from this season and the past 3 seasons. As a result, you will see your player items’ attributes change based on their accomplishments. Roster transactions will happen weekly through the season, and Roster Attributes Updates occur every other week. Be on the lookout to see how your favorite players develop throughout the season in MLB The Show 21.
