Join us this week as we focus the stadium lights on “The Kid” during #GRIFFEYWEEK! We’ll be rolling out the 6th Inning Program which, including “Junior,” will be bringing three new Signature Series bosses and a host of new content to MLB The Show 19 (Internet connection required for update).
6th Inning Bosses
Earn 300 Program Stars for a chance to pick one of the three bosses to add to your lineup. Who will you choose?
- Ken Griffey Jr.
- Jackie Robinson
- Mike Piazza
Ken Griffey Jr.
Ken Griffey Jr. is recognized as one of the most prolific players to ever grace the diamond. Winner of the 1997 AL MVP award and, arguably, the player with the “Sweetest Swing.” Choose “The Kid” if you’re looking to add some speed and style to your roster.
Few, if any, players hold a more revered position in the game of baseball than Jackie Robinson. Earning the NL Rookie of the Year Award in first year in the MLB with 12 homers, a league-leading 29 steals, and a .297 average. Any team would be made more formidable by adding Jackie to the lineup.
Recipient of 10 Silver Slugger awards during his time in the league, there’s very little room to argue against Mike Piazza as the greatest offensive catcher of all time. If you’re looking to add some power to your team then Piazza might be your best bet.
The 6th Inning Program introduces some new Moments wherein you’ll have a chance to play as the Bosses during some of the most iconic instances of their illustrious careers and a few opportunities to match-up against them using your Diamond Dynasty team.
Earn Program Stars by:
- Playing games in MLB The Show 19
- Completing daily Missions
- Completing all goals in the new 6th Inning Conquest Map

In addition to the new 6th Inning Moments, there’s also a new 6th Inning Conquest Map whose shape harkens back to the early days of the Seattle Mariners ball club. Earn 30 Stars, plus additional Stubs, XP, and Standard Packs for completing all of the objectives laid out in the new 6th Inning Conquest Map.
