Not content with breaking boundaries with its incredible ongoing Negro Leagues mode, MLB The Show 24 will also introduce female ballplayers for the first time in its RPG-inspired Road to the Show. Selecting a lady will trigger a unique storyline where you’re accompanied by your childhood friend and fellow prospective superstar Mia Lewis, and will explore the “camaraderie professional players like Kelsie Whitmore have said is so important to their success on and off the field”.

All of the features of Road to the Show will remain the same, so you’ll be able to progress your ballplayer how you want to, and will gradually work your way up from the Minor Leagues and into the Big Leagues. But the narrative flavour will be different, with the unique cutscenes changing depending on how you play and your overall progress. There’ll also be unique commentary, MLB network segments, and more to document your journey.
