MLB 10: The Show is set again to provide fans with a first-rate baseball experience via even more features and modes destined to quicken the heart, raise the stakes, and hurl you further into a true MLB baseball experience. The long awaited Home Run Derby leads the deep features list in MLB 10: The Show. Fully implemented in the season modes and available as a stand alone feature, Home Run Derby follows the current MLB rules. The MLB All-Star Futures Game is also available within season modes in its correct timeframe, as well as fully functional online leagues.
For players who idolize Joe Mauer, the new “Catcher Mode” gives the ability to call the game as the catcher, select pitches, and be the ultimate field general. Five new Minor League stadiums are introduced, as well as a selection of classic parks available on the PS3 for the first time. Online multiplayer has vastly improved this year to bring more of that competitive fire out amongst friends. Along with the core online league play, MLB 10 The Show now offers fully functional online season leagues! MLB 10 also offers daytime transitional lighting, a newly added “Movie Maker” menu giving the user the ability to select multiple replays to add to and edit a single movie, and 11 new stadiums. Lastly, The Show will offer the ability to view every game you’ve ever played online, complete with opponents, box scores, and game logs.
