MLB The Show 21 launched earlier this week for all platforms and players, even Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
The first weekend since the game went live will now have double XP for everyone, and this can help players put a big dent in the 1st Inning Program for Diamond Dynasty in MLB The Show 21.
Double XP Weekend Start Date & End Time
MLB The Show 21's Double XP Weekend will give players boosts for gameplay XP that applies to the 1st Inning Program, but not for Mission XP or Parallel XP.
The exact times noted in the above tweet were a bit off, which the MLB The Show account clarified in a second tweet and we have noted below.
Start Time: Friday, April 23 at Noon PT (3pm ET)
End Time: Monday, April 26 at 11am PT (2pm ET)
With major potential rewards available in the 1st Inning Program, players definitely want to get some playing in this weekend to take advantage of the boost.
If you're also looking to earn stubs this weekend that you can spend on cards or packs in Diamond Dynasty, our guide will help you make the most of your time.
How to earn the most XP for 1st Inning and Diamond Dynasty
If you're looking to maximize earned XP this weekend, your best bets are going to be in Diamond Dynasty.
Conquest and Showdown are by far the best options, with Conquest offering tons of secret hidden rewards as you seize territory on maps.
Showdown can be a bit riskier as the game can end if you don't do well enough, but the potential rewards make it worthwhile and a great way to practice and improve.
