MLB The Show 20 Developer Livestream Schedule

I wish that The show would do a mode where you code be the umpire. Maybe do it as RTTS type mode, where you could work your way up based off your performance. No sports games has done this. Being a huge fan of the show, and an amateur college, high school and little league umpire for 25 years, I’ll think this might help the problem we are having with parents and others in the stands. Most of those who are the loudest have never officiated a game in their life. This would start showing kids and adults, just how hard it is to be a good sports official. I know it will never happen, but it would be VERY cool if they did. Maybe I will design a officiating game for smartphone to cover all the major sports. If there is a game designer reading this HMU. I think one of the all-time negative things about the show is the lack of true umpire movement and graphics, no rotations, they don’t expand the crew in the playoffs, and there should be more ejections. I remember MVP baseball use to give your team a boost if they felt the ejection was warranted and it would cost u if you embarrassed your club. Suspensions would be based on what choices and actions happens during arguments, we also need bench clearing brawls. It’s all part of the game.

This is an interesting angle! It would be a lot of dev work but I’m curious about how it would play out to play as umpire.

... Bob Costas ...

If I may, a direct quote from Costas's 2000 book "Fair Ball"

" teams like Kansas City and Minnesota can no longer even hope to compete."

Since he made that statement, the Twins have been to the playoffs 8 times. And the Royals have won the title.

In fact, since he wrote his book, every single MLB team has made the playoffs at least once. EVERY ONE.

No commentary livestream? Any changes to commentary this year?

No Presentation & Commentary stream this year it looks like.

Perhaps nothing exciting to talk about????????? 😞

I’d rather solid game play. The games been horrible the last 2 years

At the end of Stream the First, they teased a legend reveal. Appeared to be a Braves Pitcher.

Let's fire up the speculation machine!

Maddux, Smoltz, or Glavine?

... How awesome would it be if it ends up being John Rocker?

But with the physical appearance of Kenny Powers. As long as it isn't Niekro, I'm good.

Matty V will probably be on this game until he dies. Sort of a marriage i guess, you know until death do us part
