SCE San Diego Studio teamed with a baseball analytics firm, Inside Edge, to provide daily match up data for the actual baseball players attribute cards present in the game. This way, the characters will have their own unique attributes, and a roster creation diversity can be encouraged for gamers.
In addition, players can gain experience, rewards and items through missions. These missions can be unlocked through different ways. It can be based on what stats a certain character has, cards the player has collected or an event that triggered the mission.
