We have just posted some screenshots of MVP 07 NCAA Baseball, along with a Jered Weaver announcement.
"Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that former Long Beach State University pitcher and Major League baseball Rookie of the Year finalist Jered Weaver will grace the cover of MVP™ 07 NCAA® Baseball, scheduled for release in February 2007 under the EA SPORTS™ brand.
Jered Weaver made a name for himself at Long Beach State as a hard-throwing pitcher, where he won the Roger Clemens Award (2004) as the top pitcher in NCAA baseball. He was also recognized that year as an NCAA First-Team All-American and the Golden Spikes award winner, given annually to the top player in college baseball.
Weaver, who now plays for the Los Angeles Angels, tied a 56-year-old MLB record in his rookie year, for most wins to start a career when he won his first nine consecutive starts in the Major Leagues, equaling the record set by Whitey Ford of the New York Yankees in 1950. The six-foot-seven right-handed pitcher finished his rookie season with an 11-2 record and an ERA of 2.56 to become a top candidate for Rookie of the Year honors. Now you too can pitch like Jered Weaver in MVP 07 NCAA Baseball with Rock and Fire pitching, an all-new pitching innovation from EA SPORTS."
