MLB The Show 17 Update 1.05 Today Improves Online Stability, Retunes Bat Sound

Less than a week after 1.04, Sony San Diego has released MLB The Show 17 update 1.05 on PlayStation 4, which improves online stability, retunes the sound effects of a bat making contact with the ball, balances the success rate of bunts against the shift, fixes crashes, and more.

Here’s the full list of patch notes:

Online Gameplay

  • Various improvements made to online gameplay stability.
  • Challenge of the Week live scores will now update correctly.
  • MLB teams with Matte helmets now display properly in Diamond Dynasty.

Offline and Online Gameplay

  • Corrected an issue within Franchise Mode where position players were occasionally displayed on the pitching league leaderboard in the ticket bar.
  • Fixed a crash that would rarely happen when more than 200 people are scheduled to retire during the offseason.
  • Pitchers will no longer be pulled too soon during games with quick counts enabled.
  • Minor adjustments to Road to the Show narration commentary.
  • Balanced the success rate of sacrifice bunts and bunts against the shift.
  • Fixed an issue where the Short Stop would be facing the wrong direction in specific tagging situations.

Universal Profile

  • Universal profile MVP icon now unlocks correctly.


  • Corrected an issue within the Polo grounds where an inaccurate Home Run was being called down the LF HR wall.
  • Fixed corrupt textures in Old Miami stadium during night games.


  • Fixed an issue where the icon and name-plate would not display for some players in Game-rooms.
  • Adjustments made to Home Run celebrations, and running trots.
  • Retuned the sound effects of a bat making contact with the ball.
  • Many consumer crash reports were addressed. (Thank you for those reports!)
  • Various other minor bug fixes and adjustments made throughout the game.

Late last week, Eric Thames was added to the roster.

Sony is continuing to work on improving MLB The Show 17, and in-game content will be given as compensation to players at some point due to the launch frustrations.
