MLB The Show 18 is set to launch March 27, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and will feature New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge on the cover, Sony announced.
Judge hit a rookie record 52 homers in 2017. The 25-year-old outfielder is widely expected to win the American League Rookie of the Year award and is also an AL MVP candidate.
It will be the first time in The Show’s 13-year history that a Yankee or a rookie has graced the cover. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman will be the cover athlete for the Canadian version of the game.
