MLB The Show 22: How to Complete the Nike City Connect San Diego Padres & Joe Musgrove Program

The last team to receive a new Nike City Connect jersey is the San Diego Padres, and now it’s in MLB The Show 22. Users can now claim it, along with XP towards an active program and a special Topps Now player item. Joe Musgrove. So how can you get all of this? Let’s review the details.

How to Complete the Padres City Connect Program

To complete this program in its entirety, you will need to earn 50 points. Here are the rewards that can be obtained through this program:

  • 10 dots – MLB The Show Pack 22
  • 20 PoInts – Padres City Connect profile icon
  • 30 Points – Topps now Joe Musgrove (92 OVR)
  • 35 Points – Batch of 17 headliners
  • 40 Points – Nike City Connect gear item and 500 Stubs
  • 45 Points – MLB The Show Pack 22 (x5)
  • 50 Points – Padres City Connect jersey and 1,000 heels

The flagship reward of this program is the Padres City Connect jersey. But, there is another major reward available from this program: a 93 OVR Joe Musgrove. Here is an overview of the statistics on this map:

To reach the 50 point mark in the cleanest path, you should try to do the following:

  • Complete all six Moments (25 dots)
  • Complete all five Padres parallel PXP missions (27 marks):
    • Score 350 PXP with 93 OVR Joe Musgrove in Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events, CPU vs. Mini Seasons, or Conquest (10 pts.)
    • Score 250 PXP with Padres in Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events, CPU vs. Mini Seasons, or Conquest (2 pts.)
    • Score 500 PXP with Padres in Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events, CPU vs. Mini Seasons, or Conquest (3 pts.)
    • Total 1,000 PXP with Padres in Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events, CPU vs. Mini Seasons, or Conquest (5 pts.)
    • Total 1,500 PXP with Padres in Ranked Seasons, Battle Royale, Events, CPU vs. Mini Seasons, or Conquest (7 pts.)

There are two trades for this program, but just like other City Connect programs, these can be skipped in place of missions and moments. Unless, of course, you don’t want to complete some of the Moments. Up to two of the Moments can be skipped by making both trades, one for Padres players (3 pts.) and the other for NL West players (6 pts.). But, skipping these trades will save some stubs.

Arguably the best way to complete missions is to build a squad full of Padres players and play with those cards in Conquest or Mini Seasons. This way you can work without the pressure of online play and progress through various conquests and/or mini-seasons. Then, once you’ve unlocked the 93 OVR Musgrove, add that card to the lineup.

Users who complete this program in full and receive the Padres City Connect jersey can receive 15,000 XP for the Sizzling Summer Featured program. Go to the Sizzling Summer Program Collections and find the Padres City Connect one. Lock the map in and collect the 15,000 XP.
