MLB The Show 18 Cover Vote

What seems like an annual rite of passage is in front of us again. A vote is coming that can be embraced by both baseball and video game fans alike. The MLB The Show 18 Cover Vote is coming. Can we expect to finally see Bryce Harper or Mike Trout on the cover? What the two Yankees stars in the making taking baseball, the country’s largest market and fan base by storm? Of course those two would be Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge? Will Clayton Kershaw finally get his due?

Who will take his place in conjunction with Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, David Ortiz, David Wright, Dustin Pedroia, Joe Mauer, Ryan Howard, Yasiel Puig  Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Donaldson, and Ken Griffey Jr. as the only MLB players on the U.S. cover?  Jose Bautista appeared on an alternate cover from 2012 thru 2013 in Canada. 2014 witnessed a different Toronto Blue Jay, Brett Lawrie, grace the cover. While in 2015 the honor went to Russell Martin. In 2016, Josh Donaldson became the first athlete to grace both the U.S. and Canadian covers. The latest released version of game saw Aaron Sanchez take the Canadian cover honors.

In 2014, for the first time in the video game series history, Taiwan received its own cover graced by Wei-Yin Chen who again graced the cover in 2015, 2016, and 2017. The Korean cover was adorned by Jung-ho Kang in 2016 and Hyun Soo Kim in 2017.

The 2017 season is cranking along and the current installment of the video game franchise is on the streets but in true forward leaning fashion, why not start the MLB The Show 18 cover vote now. I am breaking down seven players I would love to see grace the cover of the franchise. But it will be you, the baseball and video game enthusiast, which makes the final call. We are going to execute the MLB The Show 18 cover vote and see what comes of it.

If you do not agree with any of my choices then select “other” and leave a comment with who you think should be the MLB The Show 18 cover athlete.  I am bringing back a pitcher for this year in hopes the franchise might finally choose that side of the ball for the U.S. cover Let the voting begin for the MLB The Show 18 cover vote.
