The esports season for MLB The Show 22 is scheduled to begin on May 21 with the Summer Circuit. Eligible players can compete in four open qualifiers for a chance at winning a share of the $25,000 prize pool, millions of Stubs, autographed Shohei Ohtani items and more.
The top 16 players from each qualifier will play in the Grand Finals starting on June 18. Players that don’t get a top 16 finish in their first entry can try again in any of the remaining qualifiers.
- On Day One of each Summer Circuit Qualifier, all players will compete in an open ladder format. Competitors can queue up at any time within an eight-hour window, but must complete six three-inning games for their score to count. Each win earns a player a point and each loss loses a player a point. The top 64 players (plus ties) will move on to Day Two.
- On Day Two, the top 64 players (plus ties) will compete in a single-elimination bracket playing nine-inning games. Every player who reaches Day 2 will receive at least 11,000 MLB The Show Stubs.
- The Grand Finals will take place from June 18-19. Day One will feature a single-elimination bracket format with the top 64 players from the four Open Qualifiers.
- On Day Two, watch the final four competitors play on the San Diego Studio Twitch channel with 1st place taking home $15,000!
