Ebbets Field

SDS

When are we finally getting Ebbets Field in this game? With all the attention paid to Jackie Robinson every year, doesn't it make sense to finally recreate his proper home ballpark?? Playing in Dodger Stadium for his missions always seems blasphemous for some reason.

I've heard it takes six months to render a new park for this game, so why not get on it now? There's no new real ballpark opening next year. Come on, SDS! Give us Ebbets Field! (Tiger Stadium would be nice too!)

Especially with the PS5 next year! Could use some fresh new visuals!

I know that players have to be paid to have their likeness in the game when they are not a part of the mlbpa but I wonder if that is the issue with ballparks too. Someone owns the rights to the park likeness and name so I do wonder sometimes if that's what holds it back?

Interesting point. You would think that if there is there are property rights here that the dodgers would own it. But, maybe the dodgers leased the land from someone else. I don’t think so, though.

If not the dodgers, who is the person holding out on making a couple bucks here. How much money is there is property rights when the property hasn’t existed in 50 years?

Ebbets was included in the old High Heat series and MVP, not sure why it would be excluded from MLB. Sportsman Pk was not in High Heat, but was included in MVP and MLB, not sure what controls this. Would love to see Ebbets in the game. I prefer to play franchise in all old time parks especially if you’re using a historical roster.

I've wondered why they don't have more of the classic stadiums, you would think it wouldn't be overly difficult to create them - you basically just changing the layout of the walls,etc right? It might take a little time but it shouldn't be too difficult. But as a Reds fan, Crosley Field being in the game is awesome ( until the ball you thought was gone hits that stupid scoreboard lol)
