Title: MLB ’09: The Show
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Platform: PlayStation 2
Release Date: 3/4/2009
Few players took an unlikelier path to stardom than Dustin Pedroia. So it’s only fitting that the reigning AL MVP graces the cover of MLB 09. See if you can make the big leagues in the franchise’s trademark Road to the Show, which features interactive skills training, a new steal system, and more. Franchise Mode adds Salary Arbitration, September Call-ups, and a Waiver Wire. You’ll also find Online Season Leagues, over 1,000 new animations, and tons of added customization options. Two of the best: you can now choose batter walk-up music, and record custom chants and yells for fans to shout from the stands at your direction.
