With the World Series kicking off tomorrow, Sony has released first details about their latest baseball sim, MLB The Show 20. The big news is that the game will be fronted by Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Báez, who helped his team break a 106-year championship curse in 2016 and has continued to be one of the league’s best players since. Báez has this to say about being the new cover athlete

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.

We don’t have any gameplay footage or details about MLB The Show 20 yet, but we do know all about the game’s various special editions. Y’know, just in case you want to shell out 100 bucks sight unseen. Click the image below for full resolution.
