Today, Sony San Diego Studio (SDS) announced via YouTube that full Minor League Baseball (MiLB) rosters will be in MLB The Show 20. Sony partnered with RidinRosters to bring authentic minor league rosters to The Show for the first time ever. MLB The Show 20 will release on March 13. Here’s a complete breakdown of today’s news.

FULL MINOR LEAGUE ROSTERS IN THE SHOW 20

For the first time ever in MLB The Show, minor league rosters for all single-A, double-A and triple-A teams will be completely authentic. This means baseball’s top prospects, like Jo Adell, Gavin Lux and Joey Bart will be in the game. Yes, this also means Tim Tebow will be in the game.

While this may seem meaningless to some players, this is a major addition for franchise mode diehards. This eliminates the need to create or download a custom roster, saving people a lot of time and giving the mode a much more genuine feel. After all, what fun is it to rebuild a team in franchise mode with generic players?

UPCOMING BROADCAST SCHEDULE

Here is a look at the upcoming schedule for live streams by SDS developers. There are still six more broadcasts before the release of MLB The Show 20.

The next stream will take place Feb. 13 at 6 pm ET, where SDS will cover changes and improvements to Road to the Show and moments in The Show 20.
