It’s already time for another edition of MLB The Show to be released, and where has the time gone?. A lot of new features will be added to the game, and I can’t wait to try it out in the next game. One unique feature to MLB The Show 23 that is getting a lot of hype is called Captain Cards, which are very intriguing.

Now that Derek Jeter, legendary captain of the New York Yankees, has joined MLB The Show 23 as a legend player, adding the Captain Cards into the new game seems like a natural fit.

What are Captain Cards?

Captain Cards allow the player to be designated as the leader of your team, thus getting a boost. This boost is utilized by matching the particular player’s special abilities. It seems that they not only get a boost to their own abilities, but can positively impact performance of their teammates too.

This is something that could be a fantastic edition to the game, as utilizing these cards can make a huge difference in how you construct your Diamond Dynasty squads. Getting any boost could greatly benefit anybody who uses it properly.

While we know what they can add, a few questions need to be asked.

  1. How many Captain Cards be utilized in a single game?
  2. Can Captain Cards be traded, and if so, how much?
  3. Can they be utilized in multiple modes or, specifically one only?
  4. Will there be microtransactions placed on getting the Captain Cards?
  5. How much of an impact will these Cards truly have in the game?

There is only one way to find out: when the game comes out. However, it is another reason to get hyped for the game, as I wonder how they will fully be implemented. I hope it does well, as I love playing MLB The Show, and I would hate if these cards hindered the experience.

Undoubtedly, we’ll discover more when Diamond Dynasty is fully revealed on February 23.

MLB The Show 23 will be released on March 28th onĀ PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
