MLB The Show 18 Content and Roster Updates Available Now

MLB The Show 18

After releasing Patch 1.10 earlier today, San Diego Studio (SDS) released another huge content update for MLB The Show 18. This comes just in time for Memorial Day, and some of the new cards are themed for the holiday. Here’s everything you need to know.

First, a new event is already available. The Camo Event features 3-inning games, 70 overall (max) teams, and no diamond or common players. This event seems pretty basic in nature, but the exclusive event reward is a 96 overall hardware legend Eric Gagne. Below are his attributes.
