The Kid Gets The Show

Today, PlayStation and Sony San Diego announced that Ken Griffey Jr. would grace the cover of the upcoming MLB The Show 17. The game will release on March 28, 2017.

Griffey has been a part of some of the most iconic baseball video games ever created. Games created using his namesake back on the Nintendo 64 still remain classics to this day. After being enshrined in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame this year, he'll be brought into the current generation.
Sony San Diego has said that Griffey will be a playable legend in The Show 17, and hopefully there's a mode that will allow for his career highlights to be replayed. Check out the details below to find out what you can expect from the MVP, Digital Delxue, and Hall of Fame Editions of the game.
