MLB The Show 17 Release Date

Ken Griffey Jr. retired after the 2010 season and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2016, but he’s coming back to grace the cover of MLB The Show 17, Sony announced.

“The Kid” will also appear as a playable legend in the game. Legends are available in The Show’s Diamond Dynasty mode and can be added as free agents to franchise mode.

In addition to the cover athlete, Sony announced several versions of MLB The Show 17. Aside from the standard edition for $59.99, an MVP Edition will be available for $69.99. It will include 5,000 stubs, one sponsor pack, 10 standard packs, a gold-level season starter pack and 31 themes for PlayStation 4. These digital items are for use in Diamond Dynasty, but the physical copy will also come boxed in a Griffey-themed Steelbook case.

The Digital Deluxe Edition of MLB The Show 17 will include one of each diamond and gold season starter packs, one sponsor pack, digital deluxe pack, 20 standard packs, 11,000 stubs, 31 themes and 31 PS4 avatars. It will be available exclusively from the PlayStation Store for $99.99.

A Hall of Fame Edition of the game comes with 11,000 stubs, one sponsor pack, 10 standard packs, a gold and diamond season start pack, and both a digital and physical New Era snapback cap. It will be only be sold at GameStop and EB Games and it will cost $99.99.

The game is scheduled to launch for PS4 on March 28, 2017. Sony did not announce a PlayStation 3 version of the game, meaning it could be abandoning support for the older platform.

Griffey Jr. is most famous for his 22 seasons in Major League Baseball, but that led to his own branded series of video games. The last of those games was Ken Griffey Jr.’s Slugfest, which launched for Nintendo 64 in 1999.
