Ramone Russell Game Designer & Online Community Manager at San Diego Studio took to the PlayStation Blog to announce some exciting news for their upcoming annual title — MLB The Show 20!

There is a slew of exciting news coming out from the blog post, one of which is the cover athlete for their critically acclaimed sports simulator — MLB The Show 20. The cover athlete for this year is Javier “El Mago” Báez from the Chicago Cubs.

Check out the brand new trailer down below:

“I am so honored and excited to be on the cover of MLB The Show 20. I’ll never forget how it felt when I saw myself in the game for the first time (even as a backup!). It was so surreal. Still, it’s one thing to see your virtual self, but it’s completely next level to be on the cover of a game you’ve played and love. Let’s go!” Báez said.

We’re also excited to make another announcement that will make fans of The Show happy. Early Access Weekend is back!
