MLB 15 The Show: Goes to Spring Training

MLB 15 The Show reports to Spring Training for a month of content featuring Yasiel Puig, Eric Hosmer, Hunter Pence, Russell Martin, Andrew McCutchen, and Adam Jones.

Here are some notes from Monday’s Livestream:

  • The degree of horizontal/vertical pitch break will be unique for every MLB pitcher and is based on real data from last season.
  • If you decide to use an injured player, his attribute ratings will be negatively impacted, depending on the location and severity of the injury.
  • Every MLB stadium has been improved for MLB 15. There will be a stream later in the month showing off all the ballparks.
  • Historic stadiums are not in the PlayStation 4 version of MLB 15. Sony San Diego believes their return on investment would not be significant enough to make it worth their effort.
  • You can now warm-up pitchers and access your bullpen by pressing up on the d-pad.
  • Fielding “quick shifts” can now be made by pressing down on the d-pad.
  • Road to the Show won’t have any new fielding cameras, but the baserunning camera will be less jittery.
  • The MLB’s new “pace of play” rules were announced too late to include in MLB 15: The Show.
  • There are about 70 new “third out” animations.
  • Pitchers, batters, and fielders will each have their own unique sets of emotion animations after big plays.
  • Athletes who don’t have signature home run celebrations will use a random one from a pool of generic animations.
  • Fans can catch any balls that end up in the stands.
  • George Springer’s pre-game dance is in the game.
  • Jason Heyward’s batting stance has been updated.
