How to Unlock Roy Halladay in MLB the Show
Halladay and Friends is a limited time program in Diamond Dynasty running from May 20 through June 3. Similar to other programs, you will be working your way up a series of rewards, similar to a battle pass. This can be a bit of a double edged sword. Nearly everything you do in The Show earns you XP, be it winning a World Series with your Franchise or success on the field with your Road to the Show Player, so you will always be making progress towards your next rank up. However, these XP rank up requirements can be high, with a full 200,000 XP required to unlock the featured card for Halladay himself. That’s potentially a significant time investment.
