Over the months of February and March, San Diego Studio highlighted a variety of new content pertaining to its new baseball video game, MLB The Show 23. Throughout the month of March alone, The Show was quite active with a variety of new reveals, particularly with their new Legends.

Because of its popularity, The Show decided to add in more Legends for MLB The Show 23. And to the delight of the fans, MLB The Show 23 revealed 24 new Legends leading up to its launch, and has continued to drop more since it was released.

That all said, which Legends have The Show released so far for their new game this year? Not to worry! We cover the full list down below of all the new Legends you can find in MLB The Show 23.

MLB The Show 23 – All New Legends

The Show 23 Legends

Following their website post of the official Legends Program, The Show has now released over 24 new Legends in MLB The Show 23. With the first reveal taking place on February 13, 2023, The Show revealed more Legends nearly each week leading up to launch, and added some during Season 2 already as well.

To serve as a friendly reminder, Legends are not marked by a specific program or series name, and usually come with a handful of different versions that are released over the course of the game’s many seasons. So should you be after any of the Legends in MLB The Show 23, you will have to pursue them individually and some will not be available in the Marketplace.

As you go through these lists, you’ll notice some players with two teams. To clarify, one indicates the team The Show has them listed under on their site, while the other is the team they can currently be found under when looking through the Flashbacks player card collections.
