Hardware Programs, Coast-To-Coast Events, and New Ticket Counter MVP
The two new Hardware Programs feature a past Cy Young Award winner and MVP! Earn them by playing new Missions that focus on their careers, teammates and other award winners.
Tim Lincecum’s dominance in the late 2000’s was unquestionable and his Flashback features an arsenal that includes one of the best changeups in Diamond Dynasty (97 control, 99 break). He won his second consecutive Cy Young award in 2009 by leading the league in strikeouts (261), complete games (4) and Fielding Independent Pitching (2.34).
Complete all six Missions in the Lincecum Program to unlock his 99 overall Hardware Flashback, plus look for another hidden Diamond Flashback player item by finishing 50 percent of the Program.
Jimmy Rollins put together one of the most impressive all-around MVP seasons in history, embodying what it means to be a five-tool player. He played in all 162 games and became only the fourth player in history to tally at least 20 doubles, 20 triples, 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in a single season! As if that wasn’t enough, he also won his first gold glove by playing brilliant defense at short.
Complete all six Missions in the Rollins Program to unlock his 99 overall Hardware Flashback, plus look for another hidden Diamond Flashback player item by finishing 50 percent of the Program.
