New Features

Road to the Show 4.0

No Caption Provided
This year's installment of MLB: The Show upgrades the popular Road to The Show mode. The first thing players will notice when starting a RTTS (Road to The Show) career is the player creation has improved. Now you can find even more options for players who want to truly customize their on field superstars. The drill system has also been improved. Now players can find specific drills for catchers and pitchers in the practice modes and improve their skills with their respective players even more. The progression of the mode has also been tweaked. Instead of players starting out playing spring training against MLB players, they will start out directly in the Double A season and work up to an invite to Spring Training. These enhancements will make it easier for new players to get into the game, and veterans will have time to hone their skills before starting the season.

Catcher Mode

In Road to the Show mode, an enhanced catcher position is available to play.  The new catcher mode allows players to choose the pitches and their locations behind the mound.  In this mode, the player has a first-person perspective behind the mound, immersing the player into the catcher position.  Playing as the catcher allows players to further manage the game by picking off base runners and fielding the ball.  As the catcher, calling a quality start or picking off base runners will reward the player with experience points.  Being able to play as a catcher and perform all of the duties of a catcher greatly enhances the realism of this game.

Classic Stadiums

 Given out as a pre-order bonus was a code for a Classic Stadium pack that included Crosley Field, Forbes Field, Griffith Stadium, Polo Grounds, Shibe Park, and Sportsman's Park.  These stadiums could be later purchased as downloadable content from the Playstation Store.
