    MLB The Show 18 Adding Custom Batting Stances, Rain Delays, & The Little Things


    The first MLB Mondays Powered by GameStop video of the year for MLB The Show 18 shows off several new additions coming to the game including Batting Stance Creator, Rain Delay & Fog, Team & Player Specific Celebrations, and improved pitching animations.

    Users will be able to edit batting stances for players should they change their stance during the course of the season. Among the editable aspects: Batting Stance, Hand Offset (X, Y, Z), Hand Rotation, Hand Wiggle Rotation, Back Elbow Offset, and Forward Foot Offset (Z, X) aka Front Foot Placement.

    Players will not react accordingly to the impact of their home run, meaning a game-winning homer will lead to a bigger celebration than a home run early in the game. Team and individual specific celebrations and traditions such as the Cubs' dancing pitchers, Aaron Judge's celebration, and the Judge's Chambers in New York will also be added to the game.

    Pitching animations have also been improved to show a more fluid throwing animation with more realistic arm slots and releases. Game atmosphere will also be more diverse with the addition of fog, improved rain, and rain delays.

    Also, NCAA Football fans might recognize the name of the developer narrating the video, Steve Merka, as he was a designer for the former EA Tiburon title and now works at Sony San Diego on MLB The Show.

    Continue on to see the first MLB Mondays video.

    I would like a batters eye mechanic. These little things don’t keep the series fresh for me. I will take another 3-5 years off I guess.

    I really like the Show. However, not loving baseball, last year and the year before have given me my fill of Bball for this year. I don't see this year as a purchase as I still need to finish off my seasons with 16 and 17.
