Looks Like Fernando Tatis Jr. is the Cover Athlete For MLB The Show 21 - Coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S

It appears GameStop has leaked the cover athlete for MLB The Show 21 and all but confirmed that the series will make its debut on Microsoft consoles this year.

As seen in the images, Fernando Tatis Jr. will be the MLB The Show 21 cover athlete (not shown on the Xbox Series X cover).

Shoutout to bobbysq from reddit for the scoop. We grabbed the cover art images before they were taken down.

We are assuming San Diego Studio will make it official on Monday, February 1 and most likely provide a release date and possibly a trailer and some screenshots. The hype train has begun.

  1. As a Sox fan, still can't believe they traded that kid for a washed up James Shields. Ahhh, White Sox gonna White Sox lol. Love Tatis Jr. though. Thankfully we have our own young, electric short stop on the Southside in Tim Anderson. Baseball has so many young exciting players, but they do such a horrible job at marketing them. This is something at least. Pretty cool.

    now if someone will just leak when the ps4 release date is lol

    hell, and if someone will just leak the new game's features on PS4 and PS5.
    :grin:
    I wasn't expecting The Show to be available for Xbox One, just the Series X/S, so this is a pleasant surprise. Looks like I'll be getting that along with my PS4 copy this year.
    I don't think it's been mentioned enough how much better the Padres look in brown.
    Thank goodness the dark days of the generic-blue-team-number-whatever are over. They went from having one of the worst uniform sets to one of the best.
    Looks great - not entirely sure why people are surprised with an Xbox release, didn’t they specifically announce it was coming this year?
    Anyways, looking forward to getting some next gen info (hopefully tomorrow :) )... and then hopefully getting a PS5.
    I'm an Xbox owner who hasn’t played a baseball game since mlb 2k9, the amount of excitement is unbearable. Can’t believe I can finally play this franchise, let alone a baseball sim

    It was mentioned that The Show would be coming to other platforms, but it was never stated when it would debut on those platforms.
    Very excited for those who are Xbox players to get to experience this game.
    Looking forward to more information in the coming days.
    And damn, Gamestop just making all sorts of news. :)

    They do look better, although I would rather they go back to the Tony Gwynn era uniforms

    I saw this on Reddit, it’s most likely fake, but if it’s not, it gives us a release date. I don’t remember The Show having different cover guys for their special versions, but other sports games have and they could be following them. A Jackie Robinson edition would be great IMO.

    yeah, I was hoping against hope for mid-March, but with lack of any real news in December or January, I didn't realistically expect.
    and Mid-April is still a helluva lot better than May.
    Weird that they’ve blocked out the Adidas logo on Tatis’ batting gloves. Don’t think they’ve censored logos since 14. Hope that doesn’t mean they’ve lost the rights to Adidas equipment.
    doesn't worry me at all that it's a April release I am getting my roster almost ready to start the franchise with MLB 20 with all service time updated etc. in fact it's ready now but waiting to find out what the hell the DH rules are gonna be. the only thing I won't have right is players age and the schedule but hey the 2020 schedule never happened anyway last year.. I will simply just tranfer my franchise across come mid April if enough info comes out to sway me to buying it
    Funny someone asked a question of why this wasn’t on Xbox a few years ago and he was ridiculed and attacked. He was basically told by everyone it’s NEVER coming to Xbox but here we are lol. #NeverSayNever

    Congrats Xbox owners

    As a xbox solo user this is a HUGE HUGE news! Its kind of a dream come true.
    Gone are the days of buying a Playstation only to play The Show, just to sell it later...
    Im just happy about the cross-platform now if EA and 2K get they head out they out there asses the sports gaming fans win with more people to play online is always a good thing
    "Yeah can't wait for it to be on PC might never play the Playstation again"
    Don't think Gran Turismo will ever on the Xbox. That series and mlb show were the reason many sports and racing fans have bought playstations over the years.
    Maybe he's not with Adidas anymore.
