October 27, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Instead of waiting until this year’s PlayStation Experience, Sony announced today that MLB The Show 17 is releasing on March 28, 2017 in North America for PlayStation 4. Ken Griffey Jr., who last appeared in a baseball video game nearly 20 years ago, will be the cover athlete.

By pre-ordering MLB The Show 17 at any retail store, you’ll receive 10 bonus Standard Packs and a Ken Griffey Jr. Card for the game (GameStop will give you five additional Standard Packs). Pre-ordering through the PlayStation Store, meanwhile, will get you the 10 Standard Packs and Ken Griffey Jr. card, as well as an immediate unlock of 11,000 in Stubs for The Show 16.
