Welcoming Ken Griffey Jr. to MLB The Show 17!

Posted by on PlayStation

For anyone who picked up a baseball glove or a video game controller in the last 25 years, there is no other name more synonymous with baseball in the 90’s and 2000’s than this year’s cover athlete for MLB The Show 17.’

Destined for greatness, no player entered the Big League with more hype than the first pick of the 1987 MLB draft, and no player entered baseball’s Hall of Fame with a higher percentage of the vote than “The Natural.” A legend both on and off the field, “The Kid” inspired a generation of baseball fans with electric play, a contagious smile, enviable flair, and a swing that’s been imitated but never duplicated for almost three decades.

Almost twenty years since his last appearance in a baseball video game, Ken Griffey Jr. returns to the digital diamond as the cover athlete of MLB The Show 17. We’ll have more details on the cover athlete who will be featured on the Canadian version of the Standard Edition soon.


Thanks to baseball video games, millions of people around the world have become enamored with America’s Pastime. Perhaps nobody will ever be able to re-create Griffey’s signature swing in real life, but we can’t wait to introduce Junior as a playable living legend in The Show 17.

Pre-order now and be ready for action. The Show 17 launches March 28, 2017!
