Before radios, television sets, and the internet, physical newspapers were the primary source of news and information. Black newspapers and the Black press not only documented Negro Leagues history, in addition, the newspapers were also a source of pride in the black community. (You can learn more here)

Without these newspapers and the pioneering baseball writers, the Negro Leagues wouldn’t have survived. They preserved this often overlooked chapter of American and baseball history. This year’s collector’s edition theme is a tribute to those who helped give a voice to the voiceless.

Today, we are thrilled to announce that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is your MLB The Show 24 cover athlete!

We always look for great baseball players with interesting stories to tell. We also want to partner with great people with fun personalities who genuinely enjoy playing MLB The Show. Intentionality is very important to us, and we’ve developed a great relationship with the Guerrero family over the years. The Guerreros are the first father-and-son to be featured on our game cover across the years. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is a great baseball player and embodies the sport’s best qualities, as fans saw during his Home Run Derby win last July. He loves the game, comes from a baseball family, and giving back to his community is very important. These factors and others made Vladimir Guerrero Jr. the right choice for this year’s cover athlete. 

We are also excited to announce that MLB The Show 24 will launch on March 19, 2024, for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. 

Pre-order the Standard Edition now to receive one Gold Choice Pack. The Standard Edition includes the full game, 5 The Show packs, and 5,000 Stubs to get you started on your baseball journey.
