Kids These Days will be uplifted to know that on Monday a trailer for Playstation's "MLB The Show 18" dropped into the loving arms of the internet. Without further pomp, here it is:
In lieu of actual baseball, this will do nicely. As is the case with each subsequent release, the visuals look a little better, a little more lifelike.
