Updated: 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

I don't want to believe they would make all these great changes and completely ignore commentary and presentation. That would be an epic fail. Hearing the exact same lines over and over from the previous 3 to 5 years? No thank you

To be perfectly honest with you, most people turn off the commentary immediately upon starting up the game (I’m not one of them). Just the facts. Many people sub out the game sound track and put in their own playlist as well.

Just the way the world works now.

But definitely not an “epic fail”.

Yeah, fact is commentary is going to be impossible to get right. After hundreds of hours it's always going to be repetitive. Maybe with ps5 the storage will be there, but I doubt it. Fact is there are bigger fish to fry, namely gameplay. Let's face it more people want to hear about gameplay fixes rather than recording more audio.

@TheGreedyG103 certainly it won’t be most (my guess would be max 10%) people but I know what you mean.

Storage could be a factor (although PS5 will have faster storage not necessarily more because presently SSDs have stalled in cost) but it’s more likely one of two things: either the cost of licensing the voices or sound bites, or the way the commentary engine logic is written prohibits a greater variation (less likely).

If it is the engine then that’s an OFI right there.

I hope that double and triple plays are more risk rewarding depending on how well the user senses or hints at the shift.

If you have questions about Twitch Drops from the 3/7 stream, go here.

Fix are online rated records. We paid 40 extra $ for early access not to have are stuff reset every 2 days. I'm 40-0 others are killing it right about same record and we wake up and are records are 0-0 that's not keeping us wanting to play and looks like SDS doesnt care they just wanted the extra 40$ from us all. It should be fixed
