  • Supercharged is the newest boost in MLB The Show 22. If a real-life player has a fantastic game, there’s a chance his card may go Supercharged in MLB The Show 22***, increasing his stats exponentially for 48 hours! Supercharged players can add the edge your team needs to make it to the top.
  • Hand eye coordination is key in tournaments. In the upgraded “Practice Mode” you can not only head to batting practice, but also now you can practice fielding and base running, allowing for even more preparation.
  • Ranked Seasons can be a great practice environment for playing competitively with your Diamond Dynasty squad***. Plus, as you climb the leaderboard you’ll unlock more rewards to use.
