Sony and the MLB are teaming up to create an MLB The Show 20 Players League. Coming off the heels of a mini tournament featuring four MLB players, plus NBA 2K and the NBA teaming up to have their own tournament, the next logical step seemed to be this creation. Every MLB team will have a player representative, and the season will take place over three weeks. Every “team” will play each other one time in a three-inning matchup. After the 29 games have been played by each team, eight will advance to the postseason.
UPDATE: Watch opening night here.

The games will be livestreamed via MLB social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Twitch), MLB Network’s Twitch site, MLB The Show social media (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Twitch), the clubs’ social media accounts and MLB.com. There will be standings and stats generated here, and there will even be season-ending awards before the postseason.
