MLB The Show 22: Diving Tips

After the ball has been put in play and you've switched to the guy on the field to make a play, there are two ways to make your player dive.

The first is by pressing R2 on PlayStation, RT on Xbox or ZR on Nintendo Switch.

The second way is by using the right stick and flicking it in the direction you'd like to dive.

Keep in mind that you will also need to time the dive with the ball depending on how fast it's going, which is something that players can only get better at over time with more reps.

Of course, just like in real life, making diving plays in the outfield is a risky move, but noting beats making a perfect manual slide/dive and catch to save what would've almost certainly been a hit.

For infielders, most of the time, diving won't be able to change much, but when it does, it's oh so satisfying as well.

MLB The Show 22 was released for PlayStation 4, PS5 Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch on April 5.
