PATCH 1.19 & PATCH 1.20

Early this morning, SDS released Patch 1.16. Today’s patch is small in size and unlikely to have a major impact on the game. However, it does fix a few bugs that were certainly frustrating during online play. Per TheShowNation, here are the key points of the patch notes for both patches:

  • Minor XP tuning.
  • Minor adjustments to play-by-play commentary.
  • Art inclusions for future live content.
  • Fixed an issue where XP was not being rewarded for certain Player Lock moments.

Lastly, MLB The Show released a schedule for upcoming content drops, live streams and much more. Here is the full schedule for the next week and a timetable for the remainder of the season.
