MLB The Show 21 is just days away, and we've got details now on almost all of Team Affinity Season 1 with the 42 Series!

MLB The Show 21 will give players a shot at earning a key modern day ballplayer from their favorite team, and we've got all the details about every Team Affinity player revealed so far.

Latest - Brewers add two players to the Diamond Club

MLB The Show 21 Diamond Dynasty will have 40 players in the prestigious Diamond Club, which means they're the top players in that game mode.

We've gotten a slow reveal of who all will be in the Diamond Club, but the Brewers dropped a great double surprise to reveal two new members.

Josh Hader and Devin Williams were both instructed to inform the other of their Diamond Club status, meaning they found out together, and both will be must-have players in Diamond Dynasty when MLB The Show 21 launches.

The 42 Series will be Team Affinity Season 1

Team Affinity in MLB The Show 21 should operate similarly to the way it has in previous years, and that means a series of challenges or missions will need to be completed to earn players from specific teams for Diamond Dynasty.

The goal is to give gamers a shot at some of the best players from their favorite team, and this time that begins with the 42 Series as Team Affinity Season 1.

While we don't yet know the details of challenges or missions, those should become clear when MLB The Show 21 releases for Early Access on April 16, 2021.

Full player list for the 42 Series in MLB The Show 21

Before we get to the players that will be available for Team Affinity, it's worth clarifying that these players are not the same as the legends available in this year's Diamond Choice Pack pre order reward.

While those players also tie into the 42 Series, they aren't part of Team Affinity, and won't be earned through the Team Affinity challenges or missions.
