Prior to the the start of the MLB 2023 season, baseball fans had the luxury to enjoy a special international event known as the World Baseball Classic.

In case some of you don’t know, the World Baseball Classic is essentially the World Cup of baseball, where MLB players and other international stars abroad are called upon by their respective nations to compete for global baseball dominance. The World Baseball Classic ran from March 8 to March 21, and had 20 teams participating in it this year.

Since the tournament takes place every three to four years, The Show felt it was only justified for the World Baseball Classic to be featured in its new game. But how did MLB The Show 23 do so and what can we expect from the World Baseball Classic feature? Down below we cover all of the important details you need to know about the World Baseball Classic in MLB The Show 23.

The World Baseball Classic was special to behold over the month of March, and MLB The Show 23 is celebrating it in a variety of ways within their Diamond Dynasty mode.

Along with a slew of awesome new national team jerseys from each of the 20 countries that competed in the tournament, The Show 23 has released 100+ new international players into Diamond Dynasty, granting fans the chance to build stacked teams with these international stars.

The primary location for fans to unlock these jerseys and player items is through the World Baseball Classic Program. Here you can relive moments from the 2023 tournament and complete a themed conquest map, an international showdown, and missions to progress your way through the reward path to collect all of the prizes it has to offer.

If you’re not interested in completing the World Baseball Classic Program in Diamond Dynasty, fans can also acquire players from Around The World Choice Packs and the Community Marketplace, where most are listed at quite affordable prices.
