MLB The Show 21 is gearing up for the 11th Inning Program, dubbed "The Forever Program," which is expected to be the final chapter for Diamond Dynasty.
We've got details on all the past program packs returning in the 11th Inning Program and which players you'll be able to snag in MLB The Show 21.
MLB The Show 21 confirms 11th Inning Program will revive past packs
If you've been bummed at any point this year because a player you wanted slipped through your fingers when their Inning Program ended, there's good news.
MLB The Show 21 is just a few days away from launching the 11th Inning Program, and it will be bringing Diamond Dynasty to an end.
However, that finality also means the 11th Inning Program will be packed with some of this year's best cards from the other Inning Programs.
While they didn't choose to include cards from every single program, it's key to remember that power creep throughout the year means most of the game's earliest cards are now useless compared to more recent additions.
While we don't have any word about whether the Bosses of past programs will be up for grabs, we have now learned that the Diamond Choice Pack and Classics Choice Pack from the 5th Inning through 10th Inning will be back.
All ten of these packs will be rewards in the 11th Inning Program, and it'll give returning players or new players alike a chance to build their team up.
11th Inning Program: List of All Players in Returning Packs
With three players available for each of these packs and 12 returning packs in total, that's 36 players up for grabs so far as 11th Inning rewards.
You'll notice the higher innings have stronger players, as ratings have consistently risen in Diamond Dynasty, and that also likely means the 5th Inning Packs will be early program rewards while the 10th Inning ones will be much later in the reward track.
Keep in mind that each Choice Pack allows you only one of the three, so you'll have to decide which is most valuable to you and fits your team needs best.
