MLB The Show 22 Ballplayer Updates

New Ballplayer Archetype System

One complaint players had in MLB The Show 21 was the ability to do everything at once in Road to the Show.

This year, RTTS will instead section players off from the beginning into their archetypes, and these will be a bit more restrictive to let players stylize their play rather than being any and everything on both sides of the plate.

Road to the Show will still feature jack of all trades kind of players, but they won't also excel in every area as well - forcing players to play against their weaknesses with skill rather than attributes.

New Progression Systems


This year Road to the Show will be the only way to progress your Ballplayer despite being able to play them in other game modes like Diamond Dynasty.

Programs and Program Points

MLB The Show 22 Road to the Show Missions will now offer Programs, which are long-term missions that set progress benchmarks that should naturally happen as you play.

These include things like pitchers getting 15 strikeouts, and players getting 10 base hits. These Missions will be repeatable, and the Program Points you earn from completing them can go into packs and other Rewards.
