MLB The Show 21 Update 1.15 Patch Notes (01.015.000 for PS5)


  • Fixed a freeze that would occur when a pitch hit the dirt below the catcher
  • Players will now be notified when a pitcher pinch hit for another pitcher
  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck in the bullpen menu
  • We have implemented a daily cap of 35,000 XP earned through gameplay. This cap shouldn’t be reached through “normal” means of play – this is intended to combat large amounts of XP games from out of the ordinary or exploitative gameplay. We are committed to increasing this cap in the future if needed. (The cap will adjust accordingly during double XP events.)


  • Players will now have the option to initiate a grief report in the pause menu by pressing L1
