Jazz Chisholm Jr. Gets the 2023 MLB The Show Cover
The 2023 MLB The Show cover dropped today, and I’m thinking the cover athlete is going to catch a lot of folks by surprise.
It’s not Shohei Ohtani or Aaron Judge or Julio Rodriguez – it’s Miami Marlins second-baseman-turned-center-fielder, Jazz Chisholm Jr.:
The last five cover athletes for The Show were Ohtani, Fernando Tatis Jr., Javy Baez, Bryce Harper, and Aaron Judge. Tatis’s indiscretions notwithstanding (well, and Javy’s 2022 struggles), it’s quite a group to live up to.
Chisholm is a fun, young player, though, and he’s easy to root for. You’ve gotta figure, when you’re talking about a video game keeping things light and fun is kinda the point.
