After one year, Harold Reynolds is out. MLB Network analyst Mark DeRosa joins the commentary team of MLB The Show 18 as color commentator, along with Dan Plesac and play-by-play announcer Matt Vasgersian.
This year, a lot of commentary was captured with all of the announcers working together in the same studio, to produce a dynamic and adaptive commentary experience, over the course of the season.
The replay system has been redone to include full speed replays. In-game stadium atmosphere was a big focus. The number of crowd animations have been doubled, attendance logic re-worked to contain factors such as day of the week, matchup, score of the game and more.
We should see and hear more about it on Thursday, during the Twitch stream at 5:00 PM ET.
