MLB The Show Classic Roster for '87 and '93 Seasons From JMyers and Jethrotull

While franchise mode carryover saves will be going bye-bye for this first PS5 version of MLB The Show 21, the hope is the roster vault and such will live on and continue to carry on into the next-gen games. If the roster vault gets reset, then there are going to be folks who will stick with the PS4 version of The Show because the amount of community creations that are still uncovered here is nearly limitless. I highlighted the Strat-O-Matic ’80s roster last time around, but this time I have two MLB The Show classic roster sets featuring the 1987 and 1993 seasons.

These are full 90-man rosters (with minors). They come courtesy of JMyers and jethrotull on the forums, with an explanation from forum user Armor and Sword.

Roster Information

From here, I hand it off to Armor and Sword (Michael) from the forums who has a write-up on why both these roster sets are so great:


When MLB The Show introduced the roster vault on the PS3, the game was able to go in a direction that would open up all kinds of possibilities. For those players yearning to play as their baseball heroes of yesteryear, the roster vault was where you could find classic roster creations to satisfy that urge to play as Babe Ruth, Micky Mantle, Hank Aaron etc.

But what about the eras of baseball where you were growing up and falling in love with the game? Enter a couple of guys named JMeyers and Jethrotull. On MLB The Show 11, they both teamed up to create what I believe is now known and thought of as the very best full minors classic roster ever created.

The 1987 Full Minors Roster.

Why The MLB The Show 1987 Roster Rules

MLB The Show classic roster Strawberry

1987 was a great year for baseball. It saw an uptick in home runs. Guys who were never really heavy power hitters were having career years. The Minnesota Twins would become the darlings of MLB as they made their amazing World Series run. Frank Viola would lead them on the mound, and Kirby Puckett would lead them at the plate.

This roster was painstakingly created, complete with full minor league systems for every team. What was also very apparent was the ratings were calibrated to almost perfection. Another small but important detail to make the longevity of this roster work in franchise mode was all player contracts were adjusted for inflation in today’s dollars.

This roster was created again on MLB The Show 14. It was a huge undertaking to go through and do it all again from scratch. But with the introduction of year-to-year saves, it would allow this roster to be moved on from title to title. Each time the guys would tweak and adjust ratings, still striving for baseball perfection for the 1980s era while allowing people to see if they could re-write history in the process.

How cool is it to take control of the 1987 Mariners and see if you can guide Ken Griffey Jr. to World Series greatness? Instead, maybe you see if you can allow Bo Jackson to blossom into a baseball legend on the Royals. Or my own personal quest, which is now four years deep at this point. I have called it the “The Quest For Donny Baseball” and have now completed four years of the 1987 Yankees — still not winning a World Series title for my all-time favorite baseball player, Don Mattingly.

MLB The Show classic roster Clemens

I also employed a really cool Road To The Show experience using this set on MLB 19 and carried it over to ’20. Amazingly, I was drafted by my New York Yankees in the 13th round as a young hotshot 3B and am currently in AA. I am trying to rise in the system to eventually join my heroes Don Mattingly and Ricky Henderson in the bigs. I should reach that level soon as I have been tearing the cover off he ball in my second full season in AA.

Why The MLB The Show 1993 Classic Roster Rules

MLB The Show classic roster Griffey

So what did the team of JMyers and Jethrotull do to close out the end of an era with year-to-year saves with MLB The Show 20?

They did the same treatment for the 1993 season and created the 1993 Full Minors Set. This is an incredible accomplishment that took almost six months to complete. Here you get to potentially guide the entire future of two new expansion teams that came into the league, the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies. I can’t say enough about how incredibly detailed this roster is. In fact, according to the creators, they think it is even better than their legendary 1987 file.

I have a soft spot in my heart for the 1987 file because that was my true era of baseball — being that I grew up in the late ’70s and all through the ’80s, and literally lived and died with these players (especially my Yankees!) while also playing high school and college baseball.

MLB The Show classic roster Van Slyke

I am forever grateful to The Show roster community, and I felt these two rosters needed to be recognized for the dedication to detail, and even more importantly, the heart and soul of the 1980s and early ’90s era of baseball.

These rosters helped to define and later put a flourish on the PS4 era of The Show.

Thanks goes out to Armor and Sword for the dynamite write-up, and much appreciation goes out to Jethro, JMyers, and anyone else who helped along the way. If you want to comment on this roster or just stop by and say thanks, head on over to the thread on our forums (that link is for the 1993 rosters in this case). If you want to scope out other rosters from the OS faithful, Armor and Sword does a great job keeping a tally of all the rosters in this thread. They span multiple versions of The Show, so even if you don’t have MLB The Show 20, you might still find some rosters that work for you.

  1. Making a 90-man 1995 for personal use (I don't want to promote it here and never finish it, did that once and felt bad about it), would be more than happy to share some minor leaguers if there's any carry-over. This isn't far along at all so I can't guarantee anything.
    I hope you both use the 1994 roster file I put in the vault as your base. Makes it much easier for you both.
    Roster has realistic career statistics accumulations. As well, player appearances and ages are almost all correct as of 1994.
    Phil Parent has been working on it.
    Once you both get done, I will simulate statistics and tweak player ratings.
    This is necessary to achieve proper simulation and played game stats.
    I may copy/paste players onto the 1987 set. Some of the player statistics are horrible. You will notice I got the 3rd Basemen, Fielding % very accurate with 1994 and 2001.
    Great work, guys !!

    Good to see you Jethro. I am super excited for this whenever it eventually drops.
    You know well that you guy’s are #1 for me ever since MLB 11. The 1987 Roster is still my most played classic set ever.
    I can only imagine how great 1993 will be. The inaugural seasons for both the Marlins and Rockies. Iam already imagining taking on the Marlins and charting a course for them!!
    Can’t wait for this one. All the best to you and the family.
    Feel free to use any players from any roster that I've put in the vault over the years. I've always been a "Season" guy in the show and I don't think I've ever played the next season in Franchise. I'm almost done with my 40 man All Time Roster, and that should be my last roster for the year. I've got '61, '89, '01, and All Time seasons lined up for my summer. Best of luck with '93.
    Little update, Reds, Marlins, complete and Tigers are getting uploaded tonight to get rated. We also have help on Indians, Braves, Blue Jays, maybe a few more. Thank you to Storms Warning and Madden08 PC for the help in getting the names in and everything else you are doing.

    Dude! This is my dream roster year! The '87 roster is just outstanding but slightly before my time. In '93 I was 11 and I remember this season better than any other from my childhood. It was so much larger than life it was magical to me. I have secretly wished for this year to be produced ever since I downloaded '87. Thanks guys!

    In my experience my long play of these rosters only ends when I reach the point that there aren’t enough real life prospects for the new season. I got 3 seasons out of 1987. So add as many as possible. Heck add 14 year olds if necessary.

    That is your take. Many of us adore the full 90 man sets which this will be.
    It is unavoidable that fictional prospects will come into the game as early as year 1 when you draft.
    So I don’t understand what you are pointing out.
    1987 had all real minor leagues. Fictional players generate and get drafted.
    This is the same for full minors for current day.
    Thank you Jmeyers and Jethro for this gift of 1993 whenever it comes out!

    I think you misread that completely. I’m saying the more young prospects packed in the better because it gives the roster more longevity as it progresses. If a roster has no minors, or very few minor leaguers, it falls apart within a year or so of franchise. Nobody likes 90 man rosters more than me Lol

    The issue with that is that doing something like this imbalances the mode; it's the reason why there are so many complaints about poor AI, guys retiring early, major budget issues, good players being left unsigned in FA, etc.
    You can't just jam-pack a bunch of A and B potential prospects within a 90-man roster. You have to have a high number of D potential players (i.e. career minor leaguers) so that the mode cycles players as it was built.
    So yeah, you can get a "14 yr old" version of a guy (who will be 18 in the game), shove a high potential on him, and so on. But as those players mature quickly, there won't be any place for them to go (so they stagnate), or higher quality major leaguers that want more cash won't get signed.
    It sucks, but there isn't a heck of a lot of wiggle room...it's more of a "pick your poison" proposition either way.

    If not there are some very good rosters by MK that you can export them from and add them on your own. Both players came after 93 and neither spent time in the minors during that season so they may not be included. I suggest the 1997 roster.

    Maybe in the "Legend team pool" (I believe those can be replaced...right?)? Then people can decide whether or not they want to turn it on prior to starting the franchises?
    (Just brainstorming, that's all) :)
    This is going to be epic.

    Jemeyers1975 clear your inbox as this message is for you sir.
    Hey found a quicker way to get the teams together. I should be able to churn out 3 a week. Let me know if the edits all stay in place as I have not sent over any player that has not had an appearance altered. I edited every single one. If you could take a look at batting stances and pitching motions and pitches that would be awesome. I am finding some double players and trades I missed as well.

    I want to see what the '93 Giant's can do with the current playoff format. That year they were the second winningest team in baseball with 103 wins and missed the playoffs completely because Atlanta won 104.
    That was a dream season for me at age 11 and Barry Bonds was larger than life to me then. To me as a young boy it seemed like he won the game for SF every night. It was magical until of course they were eliminated. That season along with '89 and '01 are etched into my mind forever with the warmest of feelings for the great game of baseball.

    Good news, back in action, started all over but I am almost done with the position players for the Cubs. I have been smart and saving everything to upload, and posting drafts in the Vault. So far so good. I will keep you updated, I should be done on Thursday with the Cubs possibly if all goes well. I will then move onto the Red Sox next.

    Take your time. When you get this close to the finish line on a Release this Important, the only regret you’ll have is rushing it, or leaving out that last few bits you could have included.
    Of course I’m not playing this until 2021 so that makes it a bit easier for me to say

    Looking forward to this roster (like many others are).
    Just a general question; are you guys following a similar ratings paradigm as you used for the 1987 roster? Any specific 'blanket changes' you're making for this set?
    The reason I ask: I wanted to test drive my sliders using the 1987 roster to see if I feel the need to make any specific "tweaks". Just want to be ready as soon as this roster is out :)
    Josh,
    Jemeyers is rating the roster, one item we are looking at is durability. Other than that it is the same formula I believe.

    Junior was on a tear on '94.. 40 homers in 111 games. The strike may have cost him (and us!) a legit shot at Maris' HR record. Still kind of soul crushing for 17-year-old, 1994 me...
    .. probably worse for Les Expos though. They were cruising that year, and really had the Braves number. Crazy to think how a Title for them may have altered the course of history.

    I wouldn't worry about that. It has only been about 10 days and they said they were starting to wind down so it would make sense for updates to slow down.
    Looking forward to getting the Indians the world series championship they deserved in the 90s.
    An update for you all. For the last couple months I've been working 5 or 6 12 hour shifts, but we are back to normal at work thank goodness. But I believe all teams from 1993 are imported over now. I got caught up with all the imports still have some ratings to do but that won't take all that long. And Jethro is working on free agents and filling in the Diamondbacks and Rays. We are almost there.

    Great news
    And remember
    Sim test, sim test, sim test
    I would say we are a week and half out from drop now. Some travel for work, but yeah all teams and international free agents we could think of will be included. Nice selection of retirees in Tampa and Arizona. Now just some tweaking, testing then dropping it. Should be our best set and top 1987. Although 1987 still is great. I am probably going to start getting into that one as well next.
    Every single player is edited, majors, minors. I grabbed some of the best player models I could find. I also did of ton created and with the great rosters already out there, we were able to adjust and adapt, correct experience years should be there for Free agency, and what players are still under team control. Now we are just double checking everything making multiple copies, for safety.
    Thank you to all that reached out to help, and the player model creators below: and of course any we missed. We had help from Madden08, Stormswarning among others to help put this all together.

    That’s a who’s who of modders over the past decade. This may be the best compilation we’ve ever seen for one mod. Even though I’m sure it will carry on into the next gen; This one feels like the end of an era. Can’t wait for it.
    Hats off to all the contributors on this amazing project. While it'd be much more fun to play with the 90-92 winning teams, really tempted to see if I can avoid the start of the Pirates' infamous 20 year losing streak.
    I happened to be working on a quick edit of another 1993 roster for my own enjoyment when I discovered this project. I put mine on hold and can't wait to test this out on release.
    I do have a question: are you testing sims for accurate numbers in both home runs and strikeouts? Baseball has changed a great deal since 1993, and part of the appeal with classic rosters is going back in time and playing the game it was once played.
    Other classic rosters I've downloaded turned out full season sims with stats very similar to 2020 baseball, and utterly unlike play in their given season. I found that only by aggressively editing the K and HR stat for each pitcher, I was able to produce results similar to real world '89. In the end, I had to increase HR stats by ~20, and decrease K stats by the same. It looks wonky to have so many pitchers with similar attributes, but it played and sim'd very well. I played an entire season as the Cubs, and league-wide stats closely mirrored real world in terms of league totals for K's and HR's.
    Oddly enough, adjusting sliders had almost no discernible effect in my extensive sim testing.

    I hope it goes without saying that they did extensive sim testing to get the ratings right and in line with the era. That’s how their rosters have always been. If more HRs are needed, there’s ways to get there.
    A slider set to go with this roster would be great also.
    Sliders have zero effect on sim stats.

    I seem to recall that they use(d) the RBU Utility?
    .. as a community, I would like to see a really deep dive into ratings, and discover what good/accurate baselines are.
    But look. SO much work has to be put in just to BUILD rosters for this game. Think about it. 90 players for every team. All made ONE.AT.A.TIME, due to not having an external utility. If they're not built one at a time, they have to be ported from another version. Either way, its too much work.
    Not trying to run you down, or minimize your points. I'd love to see ratings dissected the way we used to do with Madden. I'll be all over that once we have a roster editor, but not before then.
    ... my advice to anyone who doesn't like the way a roster is rated; re-rate them! Once it hits the Vault, its public domain. Do whatever you like.
    ... and that is to say nothing about how subjective ratings are in the first place. Just a brief example; Glavine V Smoltz.
    Most every roster has Smoltz as a higher rated starter. And justifiably so, being that he was a power pitcher with dynamic stuff. But Glavine may well be the last P in a VERY long while to win 300 games, he won nearly 100 more games than Smoltz, pitched 1000 more innings, and has a marginally higher career ERA (0.21) How would/should you rate those two? You can argue either way. And furthermore, what system can we come up with that can REALLY, TRULY get this right? Its impossible, IMO.
    No one is minimizing anyone's hobby, pal. And, uh, like I already said--I *do* edit the rosters that are released... I'm asking *these guys* if they have considered this. No reason to take any of this as some slight on guys who make rosters.

    Fair enough.
    I probably rambled a bit. As I said, I meant no offense to you. But you got the just of what I was saying.
    The overwhelming majority of the users that whine about this or that have no idea whatsoever the work that goes into these projects.
    speaking of dissecting ratings, it would be interesting to see what the basic general starting points for the major attributes were set at, like such as contact, league average .265, is that a 60 or 65, and power, is that somewhere in the neighborhood of 14 homeruns a 50. either way, all is good on this set, just having a 93 in the vault and so much greatness to relive is a wonderful thing. also, I didn't know that adjusting sliders wouldn't affect simmed games. fascinating stuff here and good to know
    Final team was uploaded today. We are finishing the import and testing it while JeMyers1975 finishes up a vacation this week. Been a long time probably another week until finalized maybe a tad more. The ratings are based off of the same set up from the original 1987 set which when simmed mirrored what we saw in 1987. All stars were still all stars and HR numbers were in the 40’s at the top level. However in 1993 well let’s just say we saw some “changes” in the HR numbers as more and more players started hitting for power.

    I can tell you with a ton of confidence this set will be a great long term franchise set.
    The minor leagues will be full. With all the prospects from each teams farm system.
    I have used the 1987 Full Minors set for multiple years and it plays fantastic.
    I can’t wait to start and recreate a new history for the Florida Marlins with this set.
    I am also tempted to run a Yankees franchise simultaneously in the same franchise.....two totally different approaches.
    This will be the best full minor classic roster set ever IMO neck and neck with their own 1987 full minors set.

    I can also attest to their full rosters being good long term. I took the 87 roster and simmed to 1999 and it progressed nicely.
    I would expect nothing less from the 1993 roster.
    Just received email communication with Jemeyers.
    We should be dropping it this weekend. Really doing some fine tuning and I am finishing up a few spots on the Chicago Cubs.
    Format on it so far.
    International Free Agents,
    Basically if they were over 18 we tried to put as many in for long term franchise capabilities.
    Irabu
    Livan hernandez
    El Duque
    Hideki matsui
    Hideo Nomo
    Japanese All Stars
    MLB Players in Japan during 1993
    Ichiro Suzuki. We have him with Seattle, although you can move him to Free Agency well since technically he was a Free Agent
    A good reference for this roster is 1987 Long Ball And legends roster, although we kept it to everyone 17 and above at the time of 1993.
    So although we stretched the draft signings to 1995-96. As long as they were 18 in 94 and 17 years old in 93. Basically we built this around as many players that ended up in the majors rather than having true to life AA affiliates. Triple A affliates should look pretty true to life. We did it this way quite honestly because no offense to those minor leaguers, but constructing them in 1987 was tedious, nothing to go on, no future. It hurts the trading aspect and longevity because of having so many D rated prospects. No worries though, all time classic Motorboat Jones is in.
    However, not to worry we did not get wacky with it. So if you were drafted as a high school player in 1995 or 1996 you are not in. We did not go too far out is what I am trying to say.
    I think this will eclipse the 1987 set. Those with a PS5 can we import the roster over to the PS5 and play it? I know the SHow works, but I am praying we get to carry these forward again.
    On the big club - Junior, Edgar, Buhner, Tino, Vizquel, Bret Boone
    On the farm - A-Rod, Big Papi, Jason Varitek, Raul Ibanez, Jose Cruz Jr
    .. no need to thrown in Ichiro. BUT OKAY!!! Twist my arm.
    Looks like the only thing I am missing here is the Kingdome, and Lou Piniella tantrums..
    Out of curiosity, what's the protocol for trade deadline acquisitions with these rosters when you guys make them up? End of season, or beginning of season? I'm thinking Ricky Henderson and the Jays. Do you default him to Toronto? Or does he start in Oakland?
    Anyway, very excited for this, '93 Jays were and always will be my all time fav team (was 13 at the time). This will take me back to the Tony LaRussa Baseball days. I'll prob sim the '93 season though, and see where to go with the franchise with a young Delgado and (maybe?) Shawn Green in the mix.

    That is a good question as the Marlins made a splash move trading Trevor Hoffman to the Padres for Gary Sheffield that year.
    So I will play my Expos' season with Delino DeShields at second base.
    Anyway, who would be crazy enough to trade him for a long reliever, maybe a future starter?
    Sheffield on Marlins. End of year. Typically 30 team control and we have years correct for service time. We will be double checking.
    Jemeyers ran into a snag with the HDMI port but uploaded an almost finalized roster for me before he left on vacation. We are hoping this does not delay it but we will see.
    So far I had to buy another PS4 when mine died and Jmeyers does not want to get another one so he is working on remote play to try and finish the work up

    I needed to type in a code to link it to my pc but cant see the screen to get the code
    So the above is from JeMeyers1975. Would anyone know how to trouble shoot around a broken HDMI port? Essentially from what I understand the PS4 turns on, but he cannot get the display. So he tried to remote play, but the problem is that he needs to code which is on the screen, that does not display. Would there be any other ways he could access the display with the connections available on the PS4?
    In the meantime I am porting over the Cubs, Diamondbacks and we will do everything possible to get it out this weekend might be delayed however, at least all the players are there.

    So has anyone given much thought on who they will run a franchise with? Atlanta is the closest team to me and my Mom and I spent many a late night watching them in the playoffs even I was in high school and then college, so I'm definitely leaning towards the Braves. But I'm also considering the Indians and maybe even the Mariners. What's everyone thinking?
    i'll use the Marlins first and then probably some team that was in the middle of the pack any suggestions about those because i was born in 93 so dont know much about those teams
    The Marlins or Rockies would be a fun rebuild for sure. Indians as well. Mariners has so many young future stars in the system to me that would be a great team to play with. I'll be Reds just because they're my favorite team, but I honestly think any team would be a blast to play with

    the 85-77 Orioles.
    aside from the obvious Ripken Jr., there's Brady Anderson, Harold's Reynolds & Baines, Fernando, Mussina & Moyer, and Rick Sutcliffe. also a few other lesser known players that I still personally liked.

    and as IRL there were only 2 playoff teams per league, Baltimore obviously missed.
    but in today's Show, that final AL playoff spot should be a fight between KC, Detroit & the O's

    it would be interesting to see what you'd have to give up to pry Jordan and Bo off the ChiSox. I'm sure it would at least be easy enough for any of the other 29 teams to get prospect Jordan. incidentally, I was fortunate enough to see Jordan play several games for Birmingham, at the time I lived less than 20 minutes from their stadium
    All players in the roster now rating the last 5 teams. jemeyers sent me the ratings file so we are through 1 of the 5. Getting through it as quickly as possible but making sure it is right.
    I think this will eclipse 1987 when it’s all said and done. We are going to release it and then do one more release with corrections.
    I will keep you guys updated but I think tomorrow would be tough to get it all done but sometime this week is the goal.

    really appreciate people taking time of their day to do stuff like this for the community to enjoy :)
    phenomenal stuff - having done 4 historic teams (with 1997 being my hardest effort) this is a LABOR of love. Unreal what you guys are doing with this kind of depth.
    I'm going to roll with the Indians. They are my favorite team. In 1993 I was 21 - and this is the final year at Old Lakefront Municipal Stadium before moving to Jacobs Field in 1994.
    Again, I (as all of us) can't thank you guys enough!!
    I recall the 87 roster you didn't utilize the in-game legends but they were still on the legend teams to add as we like. Is that the same for 93 and if so does it include the new legends from 20 like Mariano or Maddux?
    I just realized with the 1993 Yankees we can see if Brien Taylor ever amounts to anything and rewrite his story.
    I remember him and unfortunately he ran with the wrong crowd, got into a lot of trouble and an off field injury (a fight) basically ended his at the time very promising career. Just terrible. #1 overall pick. One of three players in history to be a #1 overall and never make it to The Show. He never got above AA ball. He then moved with his 5 daughters to NC. Where several years later was busted on cocaine trafficking. Spent 5 years in prison. Was released in 2015.
    Can we turn his life around virtually?
    Man this roster is going to be epic!!!

    I am sure there will be errors. It took since May to complete but I think you guys will really enjoy it.
    I think it tops our 1987 set so let the debate begin tonight.
    Feedback welcome

    Do you want us to look for uniforms numbers error also?
    There is a Randy Ready in Baltimore and Montreal. Should only be with MTL
    This roster is sick guys! Well done.
    Did notice Thomas Howard was on the Indians and Reds. I just imported Candy Maldonado from 1987 and edited him down in place of Howard on the Indians. Figured you guys could catch that on your update too.
    After a brief review of all the teams I jumped into a game Braves (me) vs Indians. Maddux was very much himself, inducing 4 DP's in the first 5 innings! But then in the 6th I had to take him out due to him feeling shoulder discomfort. I ended up losing 2-1 in 11 innings due to a couple mental mistakes on my part. I know it was just one game, but it felt right as far as play was concerned. There was one HR hit, a Terry Pendleton solo shot in the middle innings, with the other 2 runs both coming off doubles in the gaps. I can't wait to deep-dive into this roster set! Thank you so much for your hard work, guys!!
    This roster is amazing!! I thank everyone who took part in this project. Y’all make this game very very fun to play.
    -On the Brewers there are two Minor Leaguer pitchers with no name
    Other than that..this roster is awesome!!

    Yes, look at everything, I know for a fact there was one more than one master file I worked with before getting them to Jemeyers1975 to rate. One of my PS4's died while I was working on this process. So I am sure there are some items off. Mine died while I was working with a few teams like,
    Pirates,
    Brewers,
    Mets,
    Cubs,
    Which was around August or so. I am already taking notes so thank you.
    Simply amazing work gentlemen. And you guys are right. This is exceeding the legendary 1987 Full Minors (which is still incredible).
    Without ruining this for others. I noticed some easter egg international free agents whom had some nice everyday player type ratings but they are not the popular guys from Japan and Cuba (Livian, Matsui, Irabu, Orlando Hernandez, Nomo etc).
    I am going to sign 2 of them to the Marlins who need a lot of help!!
    Were these real guys or some fictional easter egg nuggets?
    This roster will be played for multiple years!!!
    I am going to wait for your first update to formally start. In the meantime we will be streaming preview games.
    Simply awesome.
    Happy holidays to you gentlemen and thank you is simply not enough for this.
    All the best and stay safe.
