If you love baseball and video games, then check out MLB The Show, 16. This video game from Sony is being called the best baseball video game of all time! Even famous baseball players use it to train for the real thing.
MLB The Show is a Major League baseball video game. It has some of the best graphics around, and the players and ballparks all look very realistic. It is also a good way to learn more about baseball, and understand the strategies (plans and plays) that make a good team.
The Show is a long-time game series. It has been around since 1998, and The Show 16 is one of the very best. Sony made some changes to the game that help it move faster and smoother. One change Sony made was to speed up the Road to the Show module, so it does not take up so much time. Now, you can go right to the next game after you finish a game, and skip the main menu. You can also slow down a pitch using a new feature called the Show Time feature. This lets you have time to pick just the right swing, and show off your form.
Eric Hosmer, the Kansas City Royals first baseman, even says that he uses The Show to help him in his real-life gameplay. He checks his rating, to see where he stacks up compared to everyone else, and to see where his strengths and weaknesses are. Hosmer also says a lot of his teammates play the game, too, because they can take it on the road with them. “Going on the road and having to be up early the next day, I know a lot of guys like to get in the room early and wind down with either TV or most guys on my team have their system.”
If you’ve never played The Show before, now is a great time to start. The game comes with tutorials that help new players learn the basics, so you can jump right into the game!
