ka-boom.

"We've also upgraded sounds of the show so there are more slots"

@ 16:20 - bloop into foul territory down left field line, the LF, 3B, AND SS all run after the ball. This is new. This is good.

Really good interview. One thing I (the Shoe guru, lol) picked up on was Bryant wearing Adidas and Kluber with some NB shoes. Russell teased me by going into the cleats momentarily but then immediately exiting out lol.

Oh boy. Player model guys, WATCH THIS VIDEO. Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but still, watch.

Shoulder and collarbone sliders for CAP. Spine length. Glutes, etc.

MLB players are hand-tuned (that means uneditable, but they should still look a lot more like the real life counterparts)

I'm only like 3 minutes into the video but that stood out right away.

All the new players and the way they look continue to amaze me.

I'm seeing an "Options Explorer" selection on the main menu under mini-modes. Wonder what that could be?

Did Bryant have a Adidas arm sleeve on?

Really hoping they added Adidas batting gloves, fielding gloves and arm sleeves.

That Cleveland Indians BP jersey is very concerning. It looks like they added the new BP warmups and not the the Spring Training jerseys. The new BP warm ups will never be worn in any games since they are not real jerseys. Everything else looks really good though.

He did not, looked like a generic sleeve/gloves.

Noticed this a bit in the first stream but Ramone mentions that they have new catcher set up animations and not all catchers will set up the same, thats pretty cool especially pitching from broadcast or any cam behind the pitcher.

There were also a few little things that Ramone purposely buttoned through as well. I'm sure people will eventually pick up on. 😁

I did catch it (it was really quick). That is a bit disheartening for sure. It is the BP warmup minus the long sleeves (which is what they are in real life). Hopefully this will be changed before release otherwise we will be stuck with it.

EDIT: Like Ramone said this isn't the complete game, but I also noticed only 10 uniform slots still as well. Holding off judgement until the uniform sets stream next week.

In the video the Indians have

Nope, only CAPS.
