Early this morning, SDS released Patch 1.10, just two days after Patch 1.09. Today’s patch is small in size, but could have a huge impact for online gameplay, specifically in ranked seasons. Per TheShowNation, here are the key points of the patch notes:
- Minor gameplay tuning. This should slightly increase the line drive success rate.
- Reduction in error chances for diamond infielders on additional routine type plays.
- Reduction in error chances for high rated outfielders on routine type fly balls.

Lastly, MLB The Show is having a stub sale over the weekend. You can save up to 30% on a stub purchase, depending on which bundle you buy. The sale ends Monday.
