SEATTLE – Baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. is coming back to video games.
Sony announced Thursday the Seattle Mariners great will adorn the cover of MLB The Show ’17 when it’s released next spring for PlayStation 4.
“Destined for greatness, no player entered the Big League with more hype than the first pick of the 1987 MLB draft, and no player entered baseball’s Hall of Fame with a higher percentage of the vote than ‘The Natural,’” reads a Sony press release. “A legend both on and off the field, ‘The Kid’ inspired a generation of baseball fans with electric play, a contagious smile, enviable flair, and a swing that’s been imitated but never duplicated for almost three decades.”
