MLB The Show 18 Coming In March, Aaron Judge Gets The Cover

Posted by November 6, 2017 Comment

MLB The Show will return next year on March 27. That is news to nobody of course, as it invades our PS4 every year. Coming off a great year this past year with The Show 17, anticipation was high for the reveal of who would grace next years cover.

We have an answer, and it was predicable.

MLB The Show 18 Cover

New York Yankee’s right fielder Aaron Judge will greet players when they pick up the game next spring. The slugger finished the year with 52 home runs, setting the all-time rookie record. He had his struggles as well at the plates, setting records for strike outs. He and the Baby Bombers fell short in the American League Championship series to the eventual World Series champion Houston Astros in seven games.

The Astros themselves had a couple possible cover stars in Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa. But there was no way they were not going with Judge. He is already one of the most popular stars in the league, playing for arguably the most popular sports team in existence.
