MLB The Show 19’s first roster of Legends announced

Some of the sport's all-time greats are coming to the PS4 exclusive for this month's launch

For those new to MLB The Show 19, Legends are the game’s greatest, retired players such as Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson and Ted Williams. Legends are playable in Diamond Dynasty (Internet required), Franchise Mode, and on era-specific teams in Exhibition mode.

Flashbacks are current-day players, such as Rookie Bryce Harper, that are rated based on that time in his career. For the first time in MLB The Show 19, you can add 50+ Flashbacks to your Franchise roster along with other Legends and try to win a title.

Legends and Flashbacks add a rich, historic element to MLB The Show 19. They tap into more than 100 years of history and illustrate how the sport has evolved into today’s game. Pick up a controller and settle debates on the digital field. Build your roster with all-time Legends, players you grew up watching, or today’s stars in their prime.

We’re introducing two new Legends to MLB The Show 19: Rickey Henderson and Don Mattingly!

Well I’ve heard of Ty Cobb (Tommy Lee Jones movie) and Lou Gehrig (had a disease named after him). Everyone else there be unknown to me. :)


Knowing two probably makes you the most baseball knowledgeable person in the whole of Europe.


I really hope your comment makes it into the “Comments of the week” section

Oh I know Don Mattingly too cos he was one of the baseball players in the classic Simpsons episode Homer at the Bat. The one Mr Burns kept telling to trim his sideburns. :P
