MLB 09 The Show Online Tournament – Register Now to Compete for Big Money and Sony Gear!

MLB 09 The Show All-Star Championship

Hey there, it’s Jason from San Diego Studio. On behalf of Major League Gaming (MLG) and SCEA, the MLB 09 The Show dev team is extremely excited to publicly announce the MLB ’09 The Show All-Star Championship. The promotions team has just unveiled the details to those attending FanFest and other All-Star Week activities at Busch Stadium in St. Louis (see Jeff’s video and images from the ballpark). What we know is that you can register now here to queue up for a single player ladder which begins on August 3. The top 128 players from the ladder will be seeded into a single elimination bracketed tournament which begins on September 1.

There are two highly important points that make this a no-brainer for MLB ’09 The Show fans:

1. Prize package is massive — grand prize $10,000 cash and running up with $2,000 in Sony gear, and

2. My team has been working with SCEA, Foster City and MLG, New York to integrate game data on the backend, so participants will not have to report scores manually. This is the first time any tournament ladder on Gamebattles will offer such auto-reporting functions!

This is the first MLB The Show tournament of this size and everyone involved with the game is ecstatic about the opportunity. Don’t miss out on being among the first to be involved with The Show All-Star Championship.

Enjoy All-Star Week and don’t forget to sign up for the MLB ’09 The Show All Star Championship ASAP!

It’s a bummer that I’m horrible at this online. Oh well.


+ spunnups on July 15th, 2009 at 9:23 am said:

If people do decide to sign up, what will be the schedule and times for the games played?


+ BlooodyCow on July 15th, 2009 at 9:37 am said:

Nice, too bad I do not have the game.


+ User_cl on July 15th, 2009 at 9:39 am said:

Sounds like a lot of fun, too bad i dont like sports games very much. I would love to see this type of thing done with other games, shooters, racing games etc…. Hell having a PAIN tournament would even be pretty sweet.


+ StalkingSilence on July 15th, 2009 at 9:40 am said:

Are you in the commercial?


+ StalkingSilence on July 15th, 2009 at 9:41 am said:

Don’t have the game, but love the automatic score reporting. Kudos!

+ nathan118 on July 15th, 2009 at 9:49 am said:

It would be nice if that gamebattles site worked properly. I activated my account…but now it won’t let me login. And when I ask it to email me my password, it says no account has been registered under that email. Ugh.


+ MAGNUM-RAM on July 15th, 2009 at 9:49 am said:

Incredible !

Sign up !

You gotta be in it to win it !


+ nathan118 on July 15th, 2009 at 9:50 am said:

Nevermind…just took like 10 mins for the account to REALLY be activated.


+ Cloud_911 on July 15th, 2009 at 9:51 am said:

i would love to play but unfortunately mlb the show turned my ps3 blu ray disc drive into a unplayable drive. the constant freezing of the game was a real turn off and i love the series a whole lot. GL to everyone in the tourny.


+ royalflush5 on July 15th, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

+ TRIX_BOL on July 15th, 2009 at 10:58 am said:

Wish I have gotten MLB ’09 The Show instead of MLB ’08 The Show.

Definetly this will be one of the best tournament ever!

“3. Eligibility and Limitations. All participants must be legal residents of the United States”
This isn’t even funny anymore. I was actually thinking of buying this game so I could compete. SCEA kicking Canada in the jewels yet again.

Please guys, I know it’s seems like a lot to ask, but can you please elaborate on the rules and eligibility of your competitions IN THE BLOG POST, so people like me don’t have to wade through 14 pages of rules and reg’s to find out I can’t compete.


+ Toke_Buddy on July 15th, 2009 at 2:33 pm said:

@ 25 | TRIX_BOL

Yea there is but they already answerd my question.


+ EnigmaNemesis on July 15th, 2009 at 3:13 pm said:

Awesome game. As real as it gets.

But sadly it’s online is sketchy and sub-par when you roll the dice for a lag free game.

Something I hope gets better in 2010.


+ seesoveru on July 15th, 2009 at 5:07 pm said:

I can’t wait for this! $10,000? Jesus.. It’s going to be awesome.
