Before this year, getting full minor league rosters in MLB The Show meant downloading a roster update that members of the community spent hours upon hours constructing, creating each player from scratch with as-close-as-possible player likenesses, batting stances, pitching motions, equipment, stats, and so on. Now, full minor league rosters are officially coming to MLB The Show 20.
Developer Sony San Diego put out a new trailer (which you can see above) revealing the exciting change coming to this year’s baseball sim–complete with footage of former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow hitting a home run for the New York Mets triple-A affiliate. This is an exciting addition for franchise mode and Road to the Show players in particular, where the journey up through the minors was previously full of fake players unless you downloaded one of the aforementioned roster updates from the community.
Speaking of which, one of the most popular updates each year was one created by the user RidinRosters and their team. The trailer credits RidinRosters (whose real name is Scott Spindler) for collaborating on the official minor league rosters with Sony San Diego, which is pretty cool.
We recently got a chance to check out some of the improvements and changes coming to MLB The Show 20. We’ve also got you covered with an extensive pre-order guide ahead of the game’s release on March 17 for PlayStation 4.
