How to Improve MLB The Show

A Negro League All-Star Team (All-Star Baseball 2004/2005)
This really should have been in The Show from the beginning, and it’s a shock and shame that it has taken this long. While the All-Star Baseball franchise might not have been as popular as other baseball video games, it brought a sentimentality and historic perspective to the game’s development and design. A product of that approach included a team consisting of the best of the best from the Negro Leagues. While outlets work to keep the story of the Negro Leagues alive, and MLB uses Jackie Robinson Day to praise baseball as a sport open to all Americans, a roster full of some of the greatest Negro League players would serve as a reminder that these men were just as good as their major league counterparts.

My kid brother and I blew hours...hours...going head to head in Extreme Baseball Challenge mode. The batting mini-game in MVP Baseball 2005 was a blast, too, because you could play as Ichiro and pretty much put the ball wherever you aimed.
