Baseball is a game of details. At its core there’s pitching, hitting, catching, throwing, and tagging. All of those areas of the game have received major development resources this year. Below are a few changes we’ve revealed in our trailer:

Expansion of Road to the Show
Dynamic crowds like Judge’s Chambers
New unique home run celebrations
Revamped hitting engine with improved physics
Rewritten player tagging system
Over 1,000 new gameplay animations
More legends
