• The Legends of MLB 15 The Show

    MLB 15 The Show will formally feature baseball legends for the first time with one legend per MLB team.

    The legends can be earned by collecting a full team of players in Diamond Dynasty (The Show's version of Ultimate Team/MyTeam) or with some luck by landing their card within a DD pack. Incorporating legends via card collecting modes is extremely popular - and lucrative - so it was inevitable before Sony San Diego added it to The Show. The 30 legends span baseball history and are led by some notable stars including Ted Williams and Ernie Banks.

    It remains to be seen how the reaction will be should it prove extremely difficult to attain a specific legend and/or potential blowback by users who want legends in Franchise Mode but do not want to play (or invest) in Diamond Dynasty to do so. Perhaps the studio has planned (or should consider) a DLC pack that will unlock all legends for immediate Franchise use.

    The franchise had previously included the ability to create players and share rosters with other users. Some of the most popular community files featured rosters for all teams from a specific season. Some community members have already begun to wonder if this feature's popularity will change with legends now officially in the game, particularly if users do not agree with the ratings for legends. It is also unclear if legends can be used in Road to the Show.

    While legends are a welcomed addition to The Show, there are still many unanswered questions as to their full usage and ultimately community reception. Continue on to see the full list of 30 legends.

      This is useless to me. That said, it's a shame they got Bagwell instead of Biggio for the Astros. Wouldn't have personally changed anything for me but I'd assume most Houston fans would rather see Biggio.
