Unfortunately for players, while the latest MLB The Show patch may have fixed some issues, news ones seemed to have arise. Multiple users have reported that pitching online has seen a change. While the player is pitching, the ball speed appears to be slower, although the actual speed of the pitch is still normal. San Diego Studios have yet to comment on the latest patch changes.
