Young, Ruth, and Robinson among Top Rated Legends

MLB The Show 21 has finally arrived for multiple platforms, and even those on Xbox Game Pass can download and start enjoying the massive ratings on the Legends Roster.

While all of today's current MLB players are on their own respective teams, MLB The Show 21 is also packed with dozens of legends, many of whom earned a 99 OVR rating.

MLB The Show 21 Legends Roster Ratings

MLB The Show 21 divides the Legends Roster up into four categories, but it's worth noting this is different than the roster and ratings found in Diamond Dynasty.

BARRIER BREAKER: Robinson made history while crushing it on the field

The game's Ultimate Team mode has different ratings for different versions or eras of certain current and legend players, but that's separate from the core rosters.

You can find all of the game's Legends by going to create and adjusting the in-game roster, or you can use them in Franchise Mode if that's something you setup during creation.

Each of them is packed with some of the game's most powerful and historic legends, but there are also a handful included in the Free Agents roster which can be moved onto those Legends teams or any other team users choose.
