They kept to that with the most recent as the 8th Inning Program is set to conclude its 4-week duration this Friday.

While we could see these final few Inning Programs extended, as of now we're still expecting the 9th Inning Program to last just four weeks before making way for the 10th Inning Program.

We also know, as confirmed by the above schedule in-game from MLB The Show 21, that the "Push the Button" stream revealing 9th Inning Program details will stream on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook just half an hour before the program goes live in Diamond Dynasty.

9th Inning New Content Predictions


While we're missing specifics, we do know generally which types of content are coming, starting with a new Conquest Map which will provide extra XP for the program upon completion.

They're also planning a new Classics Choice Pack, which could include a lot of excellent player options of the past, but all eyes tend to go to the upcoming bosses.

ULTIMATE CONQUEST: More maps should arrive with the 9th Inning Program

With MLB The Show 21 and Diamond Dynasty firmly in the late game now, we can all but guarantee these three new 9th Inning Bosses will be 99 OVR cards.

Exactly who gets chosen is always difficult to predict, as many of the biggest legends names have already been thrown out by this point, but Sony San Diego probably still has some tricks up their sleeve.

While the Bosses don't always reflect current play, it wouldn't be surprising for one or more of the trio to be a player that dominated during the World Series or Postseason.
