MLB The Show 23 Theme Teams can include Mets Captain David Wright, whose price is 36000. Jazz Chisholm and Ken Griffey Jr are also on the list.

All three of these players are on the cover-athlete group. Other groups, including the Live series and Legends teams, can be made according to your preference.

Building these squads has been part of the game since the inception of Diamond Dynasty back in the 2012 edition. However, they gained popularity during the 2017 edition, introducing many options such as Legends, Flashbacks, Future Stars, and more.

Since then, building a squad of a certain theme has been the trend among the MLB The Show community. It allows players to build a squad of their choice and use it to compete in events and programs or play online games against friends or other people.

Theme Teams

Theme teams MLB The Show 23 are teams created by players of the same theme. The same theme means specific teams, leagues, eras, series, programs, etc.

For example, a Yankees theme squad will consist of players from the Yankees only. These squads can be built for any theme, like the Captain Series theme team, Charisma Series, and more.

Building a group from players of the same theme has many advantages, like earning Diamond rewards in the Team Affinity programs and boosting your team with a new Captain card with special abilities.

For example, the MLB The Show cover-athletes captain card will boost the other cover-athlete cards on your team. The tier-one Wright card will boost batting clutch, fielding ability, and contact against the leftie by five for all the other cards in the squad.

Shohei Ohtani, Aaron Judge, Fernando Tatis Jr., Derek Jeter, and Ryan Howard are some players you can include in your cover-athlete custom team.

How To Use Theme Teams?

Theme teams can be used at any event or program in the Diamond Dynasty. Using a good squad increases the chances of completing the event or program and collecting all the rewards.

You can build your theme group from the Team Builder option on the game. To make a theme group, you must have the players that fit your theme.

If you wish to make a squad of all National League players, you must have enough cards of players that play in NL. To acquire those cards, you can complete missions, collections, and programs or buy them from the Marketplace.

You will need a captain card of the theme to form a group. While making a squad of cover athletes, you will need a David Wright card, the cover-athlete captain.

Once you assemble your team, select your roster from the Theme Builder section. Then, you can customize your group. You can change uniforms, logos, names, stadiums, and more.

After that, you can use your custom-made group to either play with friends online in co-op matches or any other events and programs.
