MLB The Show 21 Team Affinity Season 2 is coming May 28 and San Diego Studios is teasing what players are coming to each team.
"Who will represent your favorite team in Team Affinity Season 2: Legends and Future Stars? Each of the 30 MLB Clubs will have a [Diamond] player item that you can earn by doing team-specific missions...," San Diego Studios said on the MLB The Show Twitter account. A change from Season 1 which was centered around the 42 Series where players can collect all of them for a 99 overall Jackie Robinson.
The Twitter account has slowly been revealing the players for the new season. Here's a full list of the players announced so far.
MLB The Show 21 Team Affinity Season 2: Full List of New Diamonds
1. Johnny Damon - 93 - Kansas City Royals
Johnny Damon is the special item for the Royals as a 2nd-Half Heroes item at 93 overall. Most MLB fans will remember Damon's role in the Boston Red Sox's championship run in 2004, but he started his career with the Royals.
2. Johnny Bench - 94 - Cincinnati Reds
Johnny Bench is the Reds' special item and also a 2nd-Half Heroes card. Another Johnny, another Heroes item. Bench was a two-time World Series winner and the MVP in 1976. One common complaint of so far in Diamond Dynasty is the lack of high-end catchers outside of Mike Piazza, Adley Rutschman and Jorge Posada. Bench should change that.
3. Lou Gehrig - 95 - New York Yankees
Lou Gehrig is rated at 95 overall for his Postseason card attached to Season 2. The Iron Horse is one of the best first basemen to ever play the game. He won six World Series titles for the Bronx Bombers. A fan-favorite item that's sure to feature in the higher ranks of Seasons.
4. Brandon Webb - 93 - Arizona Diamondbacks
Brandon Webb was revealed as the first pitcher for Season 2. The right-hander won the 2006 NL Cy Young and that's what this card honors. He was also a three-time All Star and two-time National League wins leader.
5. Willie Mays - 94 - San Francisco Giants
Willie Mays is the special Diamond for the San Francisco Giants. The outfielder is 94 overall as an All-Star from 1963.
Stay tuned as more information and players are announced for MLB The Show 21 Team Affinity Season 2.
