It’s that time again? Holy crap, it really is that time again! It doesn’t feel like five minutes since MLB The Show 21 launched, but a new baseball season is upon us, and that means another dinger from Sony’s San Diego Studio is right around the corner. In fact, the MLB The Show 22 cover athlete will be revealed on 31st January at Times Square. Could it be a Met this year? Superstar pitcher Jacob deGrom, perhaps?

Most fans are expecting the dual-threat of Shohei Ohtani to take centre stage, and it would be a fitting inclusion considering the way he’s completely taken the league by storm. You’ll be able to watch the livestream from 8:35AM EST/11:35AM PST, but if you’re not sure what time that’ll be in your part of the world, we’ve included a handy guide below:

  • North America: 5:35am PST / 6:35am MST / 7:35am CST / 8:35am EST
  • UK/Ire: 1:35pm GMT
  • Europe: 2:35pm CET / 3:35pm EET
  • Asia/Oceania: 10:35pm JST / 9:35pm AWST / 12:35am AEDT

As with last year’s game, this will release on both PlayStation and Xbox, but it’ll be interesting to see if Nintendo Switch and PC are added to the lineup this time. Who are you hoping will be the cover star this year? Pitch out in the comments section below.
