May 20, 2022

MLB The Show 22 Update 6 refines some gameplay mechanics and fixes minor issues with Mini Season, Diamond Dynasty, Co-op, and the Franchise mode. Let’s have a look at the patch notes for more details on the changes.

Since the official MLB season started not long ago, there is so much excitement up ahead for the fans as we are almost at the beginning of the path to playoffs.

This already means a lot of players have already started their career in MLB The Show 22, and its servers are expected to get more crowded as we get closer to the end of this season in Fall 2022.

As a result, we can expect developers to care more about the game and release new content and hotfix updates more regularly to keep the experience up-to-date and wipe out the issues.

Today’s update is more of a hotfix for all platforms. Check out the full patch notes down below:

MLB The Show 22 Update 6 Patch Notes


  • Hitters will have slightly less foul ball coverage, resulting in more swing and misses.
  • Fixed a freeze that could occur on foul tips that bounced near the catcher.
  • Users are now limited to pressing R2 to view pitch types once per pitch, for up to three seconds.
  • Wind has been turned off in Online Rated games.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the “Can’t Pitch” icon to become stuck on screen.
  • On balls hit in the air where runners stop to see if it is landing or getting caught, instead of going back to the previous base, runners will advance ONE base when the ball is clearly not going to be caught by the outfielder. 
  • Adjustments made to gesture timing for splitters and sinkers when using Pinpoint pitching. Splitters now have a more lenient criteria for perfect pitches, while sinkers now have a less lenient criteria for perfect pitches.
