The seemingly never-ending off-season saga involving right fielder Bryce Harper has concluded, and that means MLB The Show 19 has a cover. The bearded batsman can be seen in his new Philadelphia Phillies uniform, pouting at the camera. Previously, developer Sony San Diego had been forced to use placeholder artwork of the former Washington National in a hoodie, as his free agency pretty much defined the past six months or so.
“It’s been amazing to partner with Bryce to announce his free agency signing, and couldn’t be happier for him as he kicks off the next chapter of his career,” game designer Ramone Russell wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “We can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for Bryce, and we’re even more excited to share what we have in store for our fans with The Show 19.”
