Tournament Tips


The best tip we have for this tournament is to make sure you practice on the hitting and pitching difficulty set for your tournament (Legend for Fall Circuit and Hall of Fame for Exhibition Tournaments). Here are a few more tips to help you on game day:

Team Building – When creating your tournament roster, it’s often easier to start with all bronze players and build your squad one-by-one based on the roster requirements. When your team is eligible, a green “Tournament Eligible Squad” box will appear on your roster page.

Prepare for deGoat – Try playing a few practice games on Legend (or Hall of Fame for Exhibition Tournaments) before jumping straight into your tournament match. It will help you lock in for the real game. Especially practice against Jacob deGrom as he was the most used pitcher in the MLB The Show 21 Summer Circuit.

Friendlies – There are plenty of people trying to play friendly matches during the week to prepare for the tournaments. Join the MLB The Show Official Discord or the Battlefy Tournament Support Discord and find some friends to play practice games with.
