And your MLB 09 The Show cover athlete is…

Alex Armour's Avatar + Posted by Alex Armour on Jan 08, 2009 // Senior Manager, Public Relations

Hey there MLB fans,

We wanted to follow up our recent announcement of MLB 09 The Show with a note to introduce the newest cover athlete for the game. This year’s spokesperson is Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox. He’s the latest star athlete to grace the cover of our MLB franchise following in the footsteps of his teammate David Ortiz as well as recent players such as David Wright of the NY Mets, and Ryan Howard of the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies.

Not only is Pedroia a Gold Glove second baseman and 2008 AL MVP, his work ethic, intensity, and overall game skills make him a perfect fit for our best-selling MLB game. We’re excited to have Pedroia become part of the SCEA baseball family and look forward to his participation in all facets of our campaign. In the meantime, please check out the sweet box art for MLB 09 The Show and we’ll check back in with more for you soon.

HELLO CAPS LOCK THIS IS A GOOD POST WITH NO PUNCTUATION!

Seriously man, tone it DOWN a peg or two. No need to be mashing caps lock before you make a post.

This game is slated for release on March 3rd, that’s two weeks after teams report to spring training, which means they already have a good idea who’s going to be on what team. Keeping in mind they can update the rosters every single week, it’s not really that big of a deal. Get the game, wait a month til the season starts, download a roster update and you’re all set. No need for the ragey caps locking post.

They should of put TEAM photo of the Tampa Bay Rays. Start a new tradition with TEAM photo instead of an indvidual player.

instead of giving it to that guy who buy most media accounts is not the true AL MVP.

I am guessing why it took so long is probaly some MLB players turned it down.

I’m fine with the pick…Pedroia represents hard-nose baseball.

Why not break tradition and try this: break the country up into segments, and send different cover athletes to each region? That might appeal to the local communities more.

However, at the end of the day, the game is the best because of what’s on the inside, not the outside.

Yes in the last 8 years it has been split between east coast and west coast. But to me that sucks. I’m a Braves fan I am wanting Brian McCann to get some love but I doubt that will ever happen with him being a catcher. But what about someone from the south or midwest?

Does anyone know if the psp version will have a “manage” mode again like last year? If so, will it include a “one pitch mode” like high heat did to help speed up game play?

Wait for final Rosters before releasing the game? That sounds harsh! I should be playing this game right now… with a weekly option to download an updated roster! I could already be watching Texiera in Pinstripes!
