    Me thinks somebody goofed...all got taken down....

    Pedro!!!!!

    Where?
    -------------------------
    But man, I gotta say, I LOVE the addition of Hank Aaron. Hoping he's the Live Series reward; that would be a mammoth collection reward to grind for.
    I also low-key like the addition of Fernando....that'll just be a fun guy to use and lefties are always welcome.

    At the end of the trailer, they do the reveal/non-reveal where they tease the next Legend and its Pedro Martinez.
    The shot is of Red Sox pitcher, number 45 from the back.

    C'mon, man! It's as classic an ending to SDS trailers as the MCU does post-credit. Ya gotta stick around for it, always!

    Does anybody know the name of the song in the trailer?

    that's what I was wondering. probably gonna be on the 21 soundtrack too?
    It may just be the trailer but legend player model faces look so much better than last gen. I am sure it helps they can actually face-scan some of the younger fellas.
    Maybe it's just me, but the dirt in the trailer looks so much better in my opinion. Seems like it has some grain to it.

    Any one notice how the cloth jersey moves on pedro there at the very end? that hasn't been in previous versions of the show has it?

    I thought the same thing bundy. I don’t remember seeing it before.

    Honestly think they saved that for the end more than they were for reveling Pedro. They have my full attention now.

    Clemente bat flip had me howling

    #me too.
    but not in a good way. cringe inducing.
    if they're gonna bother with Legends, might as well go for authenticity.
    all bat flips should not be automatic but triggered by the user,
    like such as maybe after a swing and contact, press & hold R2 & L2

    A bat flip button would be awesome
    Edit: would also be a great way to utilize some of the more absurd/obnoxious HR celebrations they added last year. If you don't like them then dont bat flip :)

    The only thing with having a bat flip button, is that the animations would have to be so smooth in a transition bc otherwise it could really look janky. The reason they're so smooth now is bc they are already coded in with the swing. The one thing I don't like about no doubt swings, is that sometimes you have a player that has a two handed follow through but with a one handed no doubt follow through. And there's a small little hitch where the animation switches to the one hand. It looks horrible. I go through and change all those follow throughs to where they are smooth.

    good point. since there's no option to turn off batflips, can't the player be edited to not use a batflip?
    *goes to check*

    I was wondering the same thing, but I don't believe there's an off option.

    This would actually be a great feature. Especially in the context of legends.
    I try not to pretend I know anything about coding, but I would imagine it wouldn't be that difficult to add this, considering it's all just branching animations that you would essentially be disabling in favor of letting the default swing animation complete.
    yeah, I was just checking and you can't turn their default flip to ''no flip'', but you can change to a less obnoxious flip. I think #10 is my choice for ''most dignified'' lol

    It could be like the celebrations in chel/madden. Assign four at a time (one to each face button) and if you don't do it quick enough nothing happens

    I agree with authenticity - and the option to disable no-doubt animations - but I think SDS did a good job with his no doubt animation since it's more of a bat throw than a flip, and it's close (not exact!) to the two clips below.

    This has been in the game for a while, you only see with pitchers that have an extreem high windup.

    perhaps I was too hasty with my judgement. I'll need to see more of Clemente come April 16

    Was gonna say this as well. There have been cloth physics in the game already to this degree. It could be improved for all I know, but I don't think anyone should go expecting 2k's physics where they blow in the wind or anything.
    Ok. Really really stupid question coming up. For years (basically) all I do is load the game, load up my franchise, play franchise, and turn off the PS4, and repeat. So forgive my ignorance.
    Is there currently a way to play with legends on their actual teams? I have seen them before on those bright and colorful teams (Boomers are one I think), but for example, how do I get Babe Ruth on the Yankees?
    I think I've even downloaded a historic roster from the vault... but the players that I know I have seen on legends reveal trailers are still CAPs on those. Again sorry for the ignorance I'm sure there is a simple answer to this.
    Edit: And not in DD either. I want to play with legends on their respective teams offline

    you'd have to move them from the legends team to their real team. easy process, takes like 5 seconds

    Aren't they in the free agents? They were in 19 , because me and my brother added a bunch of legends to our franchise roster lol.

    They are, if you select the "Allow Legend Free Agents" option from the franchise setup screen when you first create it.
    You can also add them to teams from outside franchise and make sure that roster is loaded when you start a new one - then it won't matter if you have that option selected or not.
    Did anyone else notice the birds flying around in the outfield at Petco in the Hoffman clip? I don't ever remember seeing that before, and I doubt PS4 could handle it
    WOW, the legends of baseball!  nice!  Imagine playing a season or two with past years rosters and now with the stadium creator bringing back those old ball parks!...I can dream!!  Can't wait for the game!

    It is definitely new and really cool to see when playing. Just adds life to the ballpark

    Bonds does seem to be the unobtainable legend. How long has it been since he agreed to have his likeness in a game?

    It was 2004, because I remember editing the fake Giants left fielder in All-Star Baseball 2005 and there was a Bonds-like head just after Jeremy Bonderman in the editor.
    It does seem like some sort of goof that Aaron was just casually tossed into the trailer and didn't get the dramatic reveal he deserved. But I also had a hunch he'd be in this year's game because with the new fancier Awards cards, the only notable award not used is the Hank Aaron Award, and it was necessary to license him for that. Or not, since I'm sure Cy Young awards were in the game long before Young was available as a legend. Nevertheless, great to finally see Hank in the game.

    Number one in your almanacs.
    Number one in your trailers.
    Number one in your hearts.
    Happy to see Hank Aaron sporting his 44 on the Milwaukee Braves Uniform. He looks great. One of my favorite players and Uniforms ever.
    The one thing for me that would turn this grandslam into a walk off 4 bagger is this sleeve patch photo.
    If SDS could open sleeve patch option for all uniforms SDS offers.
    An option where we could create a sleeve patch for any uniform SDS offers.
    If not it's a beautiful offering as is .
    Thank you.

    I have to say somebody uploaded a really good face scan on the vault though. But it needs the option to give him an earring.

    Agreed on both accounts... And it should be Cecil Fielder, not Prince

    2 things about this trailer
    1, Babe Ruth better be a RF
    2, Hank Aaron should have had that last dramatic scene of the trailer not Pedro but the game looks sick
