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!”
