How to Fix "Unhandled Server Exception Occurred" in The Show
If you're trying to enjoy MLB The Show 21 and get an "Unhandled Server Exception Occurred" error message, there are a few ways to try and remedy the problem.
However, keep in mind that the reason for the error could be on the side of MLB The Show 21 servers and as such these fixes aren't guaranteed to resolve the issue.
The first course of action should be closing out the game on your console and attempting to relaunch it, followed by a full console restart.
If neither of these methods works, go to network settings on your console to test connection and verify online connectivity.
If your connection is good, Xbox Live and PSN are up, and these attempts don't keep the error from happening, the issue is likely with MLB The Show 21 servers.
