MLB The Show 21 logos will auto transfer, but not stadiums

One of the exciting pieces of information we learned around the same time as the MLB The Show 22 cover athlete reveal was that some uploaded creations would auto transfer from MLB The Show 21.

After a bit of confusion at first, it's now been cleared up by the FAQ page on The Show's website only custom logos will transfer this year.

That means any logos made in Logo Creator and uploaded to the vault in MLB The Show 21 will automatically be available to download in MLB The Show 22.

Unfortunately, it's now been confirmed that custom Stadiums will not automatically transfer like that for MLB The Show 22.

The most likely reason for this is improvements to the Stadium Creator feature, as any changes there could cause issues with stadiums created in the old version.
