MLB The Show 23 to feature legends from The Negro Leagues
An important part of baseball history
The Negro Leagues are an important part of baseball and American history, whose iconic figures are not nearly as well-known as other baseball players of the era. San Diego Studio has announced that they plan to use MLB The Show as a gateway to expose new generations of baseball fans to these historic figures and their stories of triumph over adversity.
Enter “Storylines” a new game experience in MLB ® The Show 23. Focused on a particular player, users will experience an entertaining narrative journey through short informational videos, followed by gameplay reflecting important moments in that player’s career.
