MLB announced the cover athlete for R.B.I. Baseball 20 today, and Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich will be featured in next year’s game.

R.B.I. Baseball 20

Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich is the cover athlete for R.B.I. Baseball 20. Yelich is coming off an incredible 2019 season, as he hit 44 home runs and drove in 97 runs in 130 games last season. And despite getting hurt during the final month of the season, he lead the MLB in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage, and was the runner-up to this year’s NL MVP award. During the 2018 season, Yelich helped lead the Brewers to the NLCS while capturing his first NL MVP award.

On Twitter, Yelich expressed his excitement over being the cover athlete for R.B.I. Baseball 20. Yelich wrote, “Stoked to announced I’m on the cover of this year’s @RBIGAME! Can’t wait to see the new threads in action.” Those “new threads”, in case you’re wondering, are the new uniforms the Brewers will wear in 2020.

Even though we know who will be the cover athlete for R.B.I. Baseball 20, there aren’t many other details that we know about the game. We do know, however, that the game will be available on the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch platforms. In addition, the game is slated for a March 2020 release.
