Baez is cover athlete for ‘MLB The Show’ video game
The Cubs’ third-place finish in the National League Central had no effect on the popularity of two-time All-Star shortstop Javier Baez.
PlayStation announced Monday it has selected Baez as its cover athlete for the “MLB The Show 20” video game.
“I am so honored and excited to be on the cover of MLB The Show 20,” Baez said in a statement.
“I’ll never forget how it felt when I saw myself in the game for the first time (even as a backup!). It was so surreal. Still, it’s one thing to see your virtual self, but it’s completely next level to be on the cover of a game you’ve played and love. Let’s go!”
The announcement of Baez was made nearly five months before the launching of the product on March 17, 2020.
