New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on April 02, 2022) follows:

MLB The Show is one of the most popular baseball simulators available. The game is developed by San Diego Studio, a subdivision of PlayStation Studios, although it is also available on Xbox consoles.

The most recent installment in the saga is MLB The Show 22. The game has been available since yesterday (April 1), and early players are already reporting some issues that require a fix.

Currently, some MLB The Show players are facing a glitch in ‘Mini Season’ mode where the game is counting some wins as losses (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

Mini Seasons Issues

Anyone else having issues in mini season where you win the game but on your record it counts as a loss?? Ive won 6 of the 7 games ive played but my record for the season is 4 wins 3 losses. Just curious to see if anyone else has had this happen.

Some reports indicate that the MLB The Show Mini season mode is glitched in other ways as well. For instance, many times some can’t even access it.

Mini seasons glitched for anyone else?

I just won a game and when I want back to the mini seasons screen, it said I lost. This was the second time I played this game because the first time I won it didn’t count (somehow). On top of that it’s a super glitchy mode that won’t let me enter the game half the time. Am I the only one experiencing these issues?

Developers already aware, no ETA for fix yet

The MLB The Show developers are already aware of the issue, along with an issue related to marketplace orders.

The company will perform a server maintenance to apply a fix to the marketplace orders issue, but there are no details yet on a fix to the Mini season wins glitch.

We’re aware of the issues related to Mini Seasons and marketplace orders. We plan on performing server maintenance ~12:15PM PT (temporarily turning off match-making now). We expect marketplace Active Orders to be visible again after.

Thank you to those who submitted reports.

As a potential workaround, some players report that restarting the game once the glitch occurs could help fix it.

If your wins are counting as losses just restart your game. Seems to fix it for a few games.
