MLB The Show 20 Patch 1.06 Announced, Details Inside

MLB The Show 20 Patch 1.06

Sony San Diego has announced the latest patch for MLB The Show 20, and it addresses a number of in-game and UI issues.

Patch 1.06 includes increases the radius a fielder can tag out a baserunner, adding a steal prompt within Road to the Show, and adding pitchers and two-way players to the bench in the Sim Manager.

The patch will be available for everyone on Wednesday 6 am EST. You can find the full patch notes below courtesy of Sony San Diego.

In-Game:

  • Fixed a rare occurrence where deep hit balls could bounce under and through the OF wall, resulting in a ground-rule double. Also fixed one occurrence where the ball could pass through the HR wall on the fly.
  • Fixed a specific situation where the baserunner would go into base standing when he needed to be urgently sliding.
  • Slightly expanded the radius that a defender can successfully tag out a baserunner when they collide in the base path during rundowns or instances when the defender is going into a throw animation, while the baserunner is passing through him.
  • Increased the ability of the pitcher to successfully tag out runners at home plate, when the pitcher has to cover home plate following a wild pitch or passed ball.
  • Lead Runner Window will no longer display if the fielder or runner settings are set to “Auto”.

UI:

  • Added the “R2 to Steal” prompt to RTTS Classic Baserunning.
  • Fixed an issue where a few Legends had the incorrect head, after loading up a year-to-year save from MLB The Show 19.
  • Fixed an issue in Options Explorer, where the pitch result/feedback OSD was not displaying (showing whether it was good, early, or late timing).
  • Various other minor UI corrections.

Misc:

  • Fixed a crash caused by entering an Exhibition game, immediately after completing a Team Affinity moment.
  • Added pitchers/two-way players to the bench in the Sim Manager. They were previously unavailable as subs off the bench.
  • Fixed an issue that was making the crowd drop out completely for small amounts of time.
  • Various crash fixes.
