Speedster Event

Welcome to the Speedster Event that lasts two weeks!

START: Tuesday, August 22 | 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT
END: Tuesday, September 5 | 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT
DIFFICULTY: All-Star; Online head-to-head
INNINGS: 3 per-game

The newest Diamond Dynasty event in The Show 17 will be the Speedster Event. Assemble a team of players with 75+ speed or Bronze or Common players.


All Events are free to enter. 


Events have their own dedicated lineup, but only player items from your Inventory are eligible.

The players with 75 or above speed can be Diamond, Gold, Silver, Bronze or Common rarities, but all other players, including pitchers, must be Bronze or Commons. Your team overall can go as high as 75 OVR, but the player overall minimum floor is 65 OVR.

Press Triangle on a player item in your Inventory, Community Market or Ticket Counter to view the attributes.

You can filter the Community Market on by position and for specific attributes. Click on the “Additional Filters” dropdown to find the Speed attribute.


The Speedster Event consists of only 3-inning games.


The reward system is similar to Battle Royale in Diamond Dynasty where you collect rewards as you pass win milestones.


If you win 3, 6, 9 or 12 games before double elimination, you can earn one of these rewards in a single Event entry:

  • 12 WINS PER ENTRY: All-Star Flashback Manny Machado (Diamond, 96 OVR 3B)
  • 9 WINS PER ENTRY: Future Stars Lewis Brinson (Gold, 87 OVR CF)
  • 6 WINS PER ENTRY: Guaranteed Silver Live Series Player
  • 3 WINS PER ENTRY: Guaranteed Bronze Live Series Player

Q: Do I have to win 12 games-in-a-row without losing to get these rewards?
A: No. Similar to Battle Royale, you can earn the 12-win reward even if you lose once during the entry. Your record would be 12-1. Your wins per entry only resets after losing twice.

Q: If I win 12 games in the same Event entry, do I collect all of the 3, 6, 9 and 12-win rewards?
A: Yes.


You can earn these rewards for piling up wins while the Event is open:

  • 50 WINS CUMULATIVE: Breakout Flashback Carlos Gonzalez (Diamond, 96 OVR CF)
  • 30 WINS CUMULATIVE: Future Stars Pack (Guarantees 1 Future Stars player item)
  • 20 WINS CUMULATIVE: Guaranteed Gold Live Series Player
  • 10 WINS CUMULATIVE: Guaranteed Silver Live Series Player


Two losses eliminates your current lineup entry from the Event, but you can re-enter for free right away with any lineup that meets the Event requirements. The benefit of double elimination is the opportunity to rebuild your team if you want to swap out players.

Q: If I lose two games and my current lineup is eliminated from the Event, does it reset my Cumulative Wins?
A: No, the Cumulative Wins will continue to track until the end of the Event.

Best of luck!
