MLB The Show 21 Game Update 5 patch notes

MLB The Show 21 has just released game update 5 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X this morning at around 7:00 am EST. The update includes many fixes to various game modes like Diamond Dynasty, RTTS, and Franchise, along with some changes to the Stadiums and Stadium Creator and UI. There’s no significant new content with this one, so don’t expect too much on that front, but it’s good to see them address a few of the bugs that have been around since launch.
