Finally, on April 5th, we will have baseball! Well, not real baseball, but we will be able to get our hands on the beloved baseball video game, MLB The Show 22. With the lockout now over, and the season beginning on April 7th, what a perfect appetizer to get baseball fans ready for the start of a full 162 game season. The highly successful and beloved baseball game has Seattle Mariners fans excited about the prospect of getting Seattle to the postseason for the first time in twenty-plus years…virtually.
The game has a bunch of popular features, including the ability to play with historic players, such as when the Kid graced the cover in 2017. We recently had an article about The Show, where we looked at three Mariners legends we would love to see added to the game.
The historic aspect brings great nostalgia for all baseball fans. It reminds me of the successful NBA 2K video game franchise, and their yearly additions of historic teams. Kids that grew up in the ’90s like myself get to experience incredible teams like the 1986 Boston Celtics, the 1996 Bulls, and recently the 2017 Golden State Warriors.
It got me thinking, what if The Show added historic teams? And who would be chosen for the Seattle Mariners? Here are my top three choices.
