Spring Training has begun, MLB The Show 20 comes out in just about a month, and we couldn't be more excited for baseball.

The first Spring Training game is just over a week away, as the Texas Rangers will face the Kansas City Royals on February 21.

With the baseball season being so close,
that obviously also means it is practically time for the latest MLB The Show.

Releasing on March 17, MLB The Show 20 is shaping up to be excellent. Following on from the success of MLB The Show 19, the early glimpses of this year’s game fill us with excitement.

It’s fitting, considering it is the 15th Anniversary of SIE San Deigo’s baseball sim, so they are going all out to make it the best baseball game we have ever seen.

However, along with the trailer they released the full developer livestream schedule, revealing new features and giving us dates to circle for more information.
