First order of business: there are no attribute caps in MLB The Show 19. That’s right — if you want to be a baseball god, it’s now possible… but it won’t be easy. Archetypes have been retooled, and the choices represent how your player approaches the game. Each archetype determines how quickly you progress in certain attributes.
From day one of pre-production, Game Play Director Chris Gill wanted to make player differentiation on defense, defensive intelligence, situational awareness, and user skill matter more.
With Spring Training just around the corner we are so happy to finally show off the first gameplay trailer for MLB The Show 19. Did you catch all the new feature teases and legends showcased throughout the video?
We’re proud to announce Bryce Harper as the cover athlete of MLB The Show 19, and we are excited to partner with him for the reveal of his ‘2019 team on our upcoming final game cover art.

The moment a great many devout baseball fans have been waiting for is finally here: Babe Ruth. He is arguably the greatest player ever and is one of the new Legends coming to MLB The Show 18. He’s not alone; did you catch any of the other new Legends we teased in the trailer?
Making his MLB debut with the New York Yankees in 2016, Aaron Judge hit a home run during his career’s first at bat, but this was only the beginning. Judge went on to have a record-breaking rookie season in 2017, was named an All-Star, and won the Home Run Derby, overcoming a brutal 22 homer first-round and hitting a total of 47 throughout the derby. 16 of those with exit velocities of 115 mph or harder and a few 500+ foot blasts.
This rookie is the living, breathing example of Road to the Show – create a player with massive stats and trek on to becoming a legend – which is why we are proud to announce him as the cover athlete for The Show 18.
Until now we’ve only revealed a portion of what’s to come with the launch of MLB The Show 17 with our Playback Trailer of the PlayStation Experience gameplay video.
