The folks at Sony San Diego revealed the contents of the 9th Inning Program as well as a batch of Finest Set 4 cards, many of which are quite good.
The above Max Scherzer is what you will get if you can get 20 wins in the upcoming event on November 8. It will be an event based around Finest and Postseason players on HOF difficulty for 3 inning games. If you can get the 20 wins, you’ll get the necessary vouchers to snag Scherzer. Walker Buehler (98), Pete Alonso (99) and Xander Bogaerts (99) are the other three cards you can turn your vouchers in for along the way to those 20 cumulative wins. The event will last from November 8 to November 19.
The Yelich card shown in our featured image is what you can acquire if you snag 25 Finest players for a collection reward. That should not be that bad to pull off, however, another card shown today may still give him a battle for your RF spot:
Finest Select Cody Bellinger (💎, 99 OVR, RF)

This Cody Bellinger card is awesome. Bellinger is always amazing (overrated) in The Show both due to his ratings and also because his swing is just that sweet to use in the game. That being said, you can get this card in a potential 40K pack on the marketplace, or if you get to 600 stars in the 9th Inning Program.
Speaking of the 9th Inning Program, all the alleged rumors ended up being true. The 300 star rewards will be D.J. LeMahieu (99), Jacob deGrom (99) and Ronald Acuna Jr. (99). After seeing those bosses though, it’s really more all about getting to 600 Stars to get a guaranteed Bellinger. I’m not even knocking the 300 star bosses either because the deGrom and Acuna Jr. both look like very good cards. If you get to 600 stars and don’t want Bellinger, you will also have the option to go with Alex Bregman (99) and Josh Hader (99).
The last bit of news is we did get confirmation that there will be a 10th Inning Program. So the highly successful programs will continue into the offseason, and the speculation can begin on whether this will be where we get something like a new Mike Trout or Albert Pujols. Also it’s worth noting that there will be no more live roster updates for Diamond Dynasty. So for those who invested in certain players hoping for one more upgrade (Juan Soto), you’re out of luck.
