MLB The Show 21 June Monthly Awards program – How to get Lightning Kyle Schwarber, rewards, and more

The third month of the MLB season for 2021 is in the books, which means it’s time for the next Monthly Awards program on MLB The Show 21. Last month, Blue Jays infrared player Marcus Semien was a Lightning card and the program is still available. But on July 8, Sony San Diego released its third Monthly Awards program in 2021. This time, 98 OVR Lightning outfielder Nationals Kyle Schwarber is scheduled to run in June. So what do you have to do to unlock Schwarber, plus all the other rewards in this program. Let’s go through what you need to know.

MLB The Show players can take home a lot of awards this month, including 6,000 Stubs and nine 90+ OVR cards.

To progress in this program, you will need to complete a combination of collections, moments, and missions. Here is one route that can get you up to 100 points:

  • June monthly award and Topps Now collection (38 players – 15 points)
  • June May Monthly Awards Awards (36 points)
  • Complete any of these additional missions to earn the remaining 49 points:
    • 30 bases in total with Topps Now players (10 points)
    • 7 more basic hits with Topps Now (10 points)
    • 15 strokes with Topps Now players (10 points)
    • 10 total bases with POTM Correa (4 points)
    • 9 strokes with POTM Morton (4 points)
    • 3 more basic hits with POTM Stephenson (4 points)
    • 5 Strikeouts with POTM Pressly (4 Points)
    • 2 cycles with POTM Schoop (4 points)
    • 3 more basic hits with POTM Pham (4 points)
    • 10 total bases with POTM Reynolds (4 points)
    • 9 cuts with POTM Glasnow (4 points)

Ideally, you will want to complete three 10-point missions. Then shuffle and compare and select five of the other eight remaining missions to get to 100. And yes, you have to make a collection to win the Lightning Award. The collection can be supplemented by obtaining all the Monthly Prizes cards for June and all Topps Now items. Topps Now cards can be obtained either through packages from the June program or from special moments.
