MLB The Show 20 Diamond Dynasty: Evolution Jackie Robinson Program

As usual on Jackie Robinson Day, The Show developers have released Jackie Robinson-specific content. This time around it’s an Evolution program aimed at getting both a gold and diamond version of Jackie Robinson in MLB The Show 20. It’s a program with more heft than any other specific player program so far, so let’s dig into what’s here.

(Update: A new part of the Jackie Robinson program is coming out on May 15. The missions for Stage 2 of the program were updated at some point prior to this. These three missions give you a chance to earn +15 points in case you were struggling to complete the program.)

Evolution Jackie Robinson Player Program

mlb the show 20 jackie robinson evolution moments

There are 105 points associated with this program (you can get 140 points if you do all the missions and moments, but there’s no need to do that), and like other Evolution programs, the program is two-tiered in how it opens up. You need to get to 35 points to unlock gold Jackie Robinson, and then fresh moments/missions will open up at that point for the diamond version. You will need 95 points in order to get the diamond Jackie Robinson.

  1. I have zero issues with these moments etc.
    But man these ones here. LOL. Plus the online stuff actually get the card. I think you have to collect one online mission no matter what to get the diamond Jackie card.
    This one will be a grind.

    All the offline stuff will give you exactly 95 to get him. But that does include the exchange which is different then they have done for the previous ones.

    I miss counted by 5, i thought they were suckering people in to online with this one. Good to hear i was wrong.
    I updated the article since one exchange mission was added. Also it's broken into two parts like other evolutions so while 140 points are available, they are split.
    It's 65 points available in part one (you need 35 for gold Jackie)
    It's 75 points available in part two (you need 50 to get diamond Jackie)
    Fiddy
    Can you do stage one missions after getting the 35 points and still have those points add up to the total?

    No, works like other Evo programs where the tiers are totally separate. So you compartmentalize the points depending on what tier you are in.
    ChaseB
    Nope, just need to play Conquest for some of the missions.

    i finished all the conquest maps that are available. I have to do it again now? or just the USA map?

    Does stage 2 open when you complete the stage one missions? Or once you hit 65 points?
    A couple really terrible moments in this one. And this coming from someone that did all the extreme moments last year. The two home run was the absolute worst because Brault absolutely would not throw strikes. Can’t tell you how many times her walked me on four pitches and they weren’t even close to the zone.

    I had to quit this one for a bit.. I walked 22 times and I NEVER walk. He legit just wouldn't throw a strike.
    If he is throwing balls swing at them so you don’t get walked. At least this will give you another pitch or two that will hopefully be in the zone.

    I was doing that as well. It was a mess, trying again here in a little while.

    I would just restart the US Map. It is the only one that you can get any type of reward for (10 pack bundle) if you complete it more than once. If you don't want to commit to the who game then jump in and play steal fans games and games for regular spaces (instead of simming)
    I beat all the moments last night even the 2 HR one without much difficultly. I thought the 2 HR one would kill me but I got lucky. For some reason though I just could not for the life of me beat the 2 doubles and a SB. He hits like crap and I just keep on flying out to the outfielders or hitting a HR.
    I will never want to use a Jackie card again after this. I have pitchers that I enjoy hitting with more.
    Has this program been made by new devs? As it feels like they have pretty much forgotten everything they "learned" from mistakes in previous years. They stopped doing doubles missions as everyone hated them, they switched it to XBH. They stopped the RBI missions as everybody hated that you had no control over that. They made moments use your team as they realised people actually liked using the team they spent all this time making.
    But then this year, all those things are back?

    How are y’all getting the steals? I have Chris Taylor and Gavin Lux but even then I’m getting nailed by a mile on rookie

    The best way is probably to put two Dodgers and two speedsters on your bench and wait until you get men on first and second. Then sub in a speedster at second and a Dodger on first and double steal. Bit awkward, but if you don't have players fast enough to steal a bag then it's the best way
    Youd have an impossible time convincing me this program isnt a troll job. Why restrict the offline stuff to conquest only? Ill tell you why, because then you cant pick to play in a large stadium like Polo or Forbes.
    All I do with this Jackie card is slap soft line drives back up the middle for singles

    You can do it with anyone, just hold down steal, and then when the pitcher stops looking over release L2. You might get thrown out every now and then, but it's really easy to time it up and just get easy steals once you get a handle of it -- whether it's someone with 2 speed or 99.
    The point is the pitcher won't notice you a lot of the time and just starts his motion to the plate while you've already taken off. You just have to sort of get used to beating that fear of a throw over.

    Yeah just be sure not to take an extra lead.

    Spent a few hours on the home run mission yesterday. No dice.
    Load up today and get two home runs in three at bats.

    Which is why moments like this suck. Its all just random rng bull****. Just keep wasting time until the game decides you can hit your two homers. It could take 2 at bats, or it could take 2 hours.
    First game of that mission I homered in my first at bat and finished the game 7-8 with a homer, 2 triples, 3 doubles and a single in a 20 something run blowout. But i couldnt hit a second homer.
    I have decided that this will be a "do it when you're bored" program for me. I actually don't think either version of his card makes my lineup, and maybe not even my bench.
    The some of the missions just seem like a headache, at best.
    HollaMV7
    Yeah just be sure not to take an extra lead.

    Yeah this is important as well, ignore taking a lead off, you don't need it. It's just all about the jump.

    Yeah I knocked out the ones I knew wouldn't be bad, and now have like 60 points. And now I'll just stick Jackie in one of my online and offline lineups, and when I get the diamond I get the diamond. Robinson cards never really make my teams, so it's more just to collect it at some point.
    My team is already pretty stacked and I don't like the feel of either Jackie card, outside of his speed of course. Tbh I just wanted the bat grip and the socks, so I grinded to 80 points and I won't be going back to it.
    One good thing that came out of this was after a month and 2 days, I finally came to the realization that I was using zone (but I don't do PCI hitting at all, I hate it, so that makes zone even worse for a player like me) hitting this entire time when I've always been a directional hitter, and switching back to directional (pretty peeved I didn't catch this to begin with but hey) actually made these moments more doable, but they were still bulls*it overall in my humble opinion.
    It was nothing but pure luck on the 7 total bases one, and the 2 home run's one was ridiculous. Got an inside the park HR in like the 4th inning, made an out in like an 8th inning at bat thinking I would have to do it all over again, the score was something like 14-5, came up to bat again in the 8th or 9th with the score at something like 21-5 and crushed one out of the park, it even triggered a no doubt animation. The ball was at this dude's kneecaps, it was a borderline strike at best. I had switched back to directional after seeing people on theshownation forum talking about it, held the left analog to the left and up, used power swing, and that was that.

    I will try the up left power swing....I have been on the 7 total bases one for 2 hours...I have never even been close to a homer....most of the time I hit line drives to the gaps that die as soon as they get over the infield.
    I got a triple and a single....in my last at bat I finally hit a ball deep in the gap for what should have been a triple...but...there was a guy on first who waited at first until after the ball landed....and I got a double....I was soooo fricken pissed!

    Yeah definitely try it out, it did wonders after I switched to directional and did either up and left or just straight up + power swing. But yeah, dude, when I say I got lucky, I really mean it.
    From what I remember I hit a single and either 2 doubles or a double and a triple. In the 8th or 9th inning, last at bat, I hit it into the gap but it had some carry on it, and it was more center left than in the gap, figured great... outfielder is gonna catch this and I'm gonna be stuck doing this stupid s**t for idk how much longer. For some reason it just dropped in front of the left fielder, I'm talking it had to be 6 inches beyond his glove. It should have been an out.
    But I feel your pain man, I got lucky and that's the long and short of it. The other moments outside of the 7 total bases and 2 HR's are reasonable in comparison, but these 2 moments in particular make his moments in general a pain in the behind.

    Like you, I'd already done them so it doesn't affect me, but I'm glad they've lowered them as they were absolutely stupid. Quality control has been pretty terrible this year, this program alone had to be fixed twice in the first day of it being released (they added the extra exchange after realising they made it impossible to complete offline, but only after releasing it somehow)

    Are you kidding me?! I worked hard to finish all of them. SMH.
    I still need 2 2Bs and 1 3B in Conquest that takes forever also.

    Playing in Detroit is always the best way to get triples, literally anyone can hit a triple there on this game, on pretty much any gapper to either left or right center field

    I’ll try that. All my 2Bs are hits down the line. Hard to hit gappers with his gold card.
    Actually got really lucky and got the two home runs right away, and didn’t take a lot longer to get the 2 doubles plus steal. Took quite some time to get the 7 total bases though. Got a bit lucky again. Had a single and a double and on my last AB the cpu had subbed in a LHP. Hit a wall scraper to get my 7 bases. Agree with the folks saying this felt a lot like last years early moments which seemed designed to be a hassle and a grind. Guessing their telemetry showed lots of folks bailing on the program due to frustration so they made it significantly easier perhaps.
    All of that said I cannot get my last two triples in conquest with gold Jackie. Lol. Only have 4 games left to play on the USA map (not that I can’t restart) since I don’t play online. Fortunately they are all against the Red Sox who have lots of lefties (Sox had taken over 10 strongholds lol. A third of my games will have been against Boston by the time I finish).

    Finally got my 3rd triple last night but still need two more doubles. I’ve had my best luck at Coors since it gives a little more pop that he desperately needs.
    Why does it have to be only in Conquest? I wish play vs CPU games would count too.

    Because then they can prohibit you from playing at giant parks by making you play in conquest.

    They might have reduced the requirements, but they also messed with the sliders on these. When I was trying the 2 doubles the other day, I kept hitting homers, but couldn’t get doubles to save my life. Just tried for an hour and a half to complete this and now everything I hit has absolutely no power, just pop flies and every perfect/perfect I get is a 1 hopper to the centerfielder. Also did anyone notice when you play the Cards in conquest or vs cpu that they have Wong in CF for some unknown reason, yet in this they have Bader?
    My Jackie card is more like a common than a gold. He has the weakest swings. It's like he's using a tee ball bat. I barely have 4 doubles, no triples in like 30 games. I can see me finishing the USA map again before getting these Jackie missions.

    Yep that took me a while too. Easiest way I found was just to play the Rockies nonstop and I eventually got it done. Easier to hit the gaps with him there due to the location.
    Fiddy
    I played about 15 games today with Jackie. Just added one double to my total. Lol. Need 2 more doubles and all 3 triples.

    I hit him leadoff to try to maximize ABs and also guessed FB and used power swing and it helped. Also every 2B you get just try to get a 3B out of it since you'll still get credited with a 2B.

    Yeah he was in my lead off spot and every double i had i tried to stretch it and gunned down each time. LOL
    I'll get it eventually, but what a grind.

    Another thing you can due since it's Conquest and doesn't really matter is just quit the game after his 1st AB if you don't get a 2B or 3B. Then go back into another Conquest game and boom he's up to bat again. Much faster.

    Once I'm done with my 100 innings for my CAP, for sure doing this.

    Play against the Royals and Danny Duffy on Rookie or Vet. Huge park, Gold Jackie crushes lefties, Duffy stinks and you have Soler in RF who can't field. I got 3 triples in two games, had my 7 doubles done before the 42 innings were up (triples as well) and I'd get 2-3 ABs a game with him leading off because Duffy couldn't get me out. The Tigers work too since they have a few crap lefties in their rotation.
    I use PCI hitting and usually hit on HOF or Legend difficulty so maybe it was easier for me than most though. Plus I'm super good at going opposite field gap with that Jackie card.
    Well, got my last two triples doing this v Duffy at KC thing.....except one was inexplicably scored a double. Interesting. So one triple still remains apparently. Thanks official CPU scorer!

    Well. That was like pulling teeth. But my OCD brain needed to finish. Oddly began crushing with gold Jackie all of a sudden. Doubles and HRs though. FINALLY got the last triple at Coors. Welcome to the squad diamond Jackie.

If you are unaware, there were 15 more points added to stage 2 of the program that should help you get closer to the 70 of 75 points needed to "complete" the program. I don't know when SDS added these missions but it could help out if you gave up on this program previously.
    They added those missions (Dodgers/2B/trading) a couple of weeks ago and they were huge in getting me the Diamond Jackie (who is now my DD leadoff hitter)
    If you're struggling to clear his Moments that require XBHs, because of his low power, the easiest way to do it is to look to dead pull and swing early, going for doubles down the line. Once I started to go for that instead of hits in the gap, I was quickly able to accomplish those feats due to his contact.
    I just got 83 Jackie, so I'm behind. To maximize doubles and triples, I've read to play the Royals vs Duffy and the Rockies vs Freeland?
    I guess this is in the Steal rounds? Because you have to play in the opponents home parks when attacking a stronghold. Also, how do you get Duffy or Freeland when the starters are random?

    They aren’t random, they match up the otstional Guy that you Use...I.e. if you pitch your #2 rotation guy ( 2nd highest rated of the 5, they will too).... I hear Freeland is Rockies #3, no idea on Duffy

    Play the Tigers, against either Boyd or Norris (or any really). Tiger Stadium is the easiest park to get triples, by an absolute mile. Anything in either gap is an automatic triple with just about anyone
    Thanks for the tips. But, in Conquest the only time you can choose a team and stadium is during the Steal phase, right? I'm about 2/3 through the USA map and I've finished all the others. I don't have COL or KC available to play, but I do have DET. I guess I should conquer them last to keep them available during the Steal phase? Anybody know their pitching rotation order, so I can play against Norris and/or Boyd?
    EDIT: I looked up the pitching rotation for DET in Options/Roster Control. I would think rotations in Conquest would have to follow that. It shows Boyd #1 and Norris #3.
    I like that they changed to each moment giving you a voucher for a little progress toward the program. The last few programs they made you do all the moments to get any credit.
    Yay a third completely unusable Jackie card to collect! Imagine making a Hall of Famer, one of the best second baseman of all time, worse than Nick Madrigal and Vidal Brujan

    Literally just an endless grind of doing moments to unlock cards that you will never use week in and week out. Only reason Im still playing is because of this whole pandemic thing.
    SIAP: anyone notice glitches with the scoring in Moments? I was a double away from completing “Jackie’s 2nd World Series Stint” and struck out once and it said I failed the moment. The listed goal is “don’t strike out 3 times.” Looking at the stats in the menu, the game recorded a strikeout in the 1st inning when I had a groundout. I’ve also had some doubles recorded as singles in other moments.
