Following their "Push The Button" stream announcing the content included in the new 5th Inning Program, Sony San Diego then did exactly that and sent things live in MLb The Show 21.

On top of the already revealed Nolan Ryan, the 5th Inning Bosses will include Vladimir Guerrero Sr. and Joe Morgan, both of which have a new 99 OVR card up for grabs.

What new content arrived with the 5th Inning Program?

So far, the new content we've seen added for the 5th Inning Program lines right up with what we've seen over the last several months.

One new Conquest map was added, this one modeled after the Roman number "V" for "5," representing the 5th Inning Program.

PLEAD THE VTH: This one should once again be packed with rewards

While the locations are still being discovered, they mentioned during the content stream that upwards of 5 different Ballin' Is A Habit Packs can be found in this map.

Other than the usual missions, things are a bit barren at the moment, with no new Showdown just yet and only a single Collection, the one for 4th Inning Bosses, currently available.

We expect they'll add more Conquest maps, additional Collections, and a Showdown for the 5th Inning Program in the next few weeks for Diamond Dynasty.
