MLB The Show 17 will be available on March 28 with Ken Griffey Jr on the cover

Ken Griffey Jr. partnered with Nintendo to collaborate on four video games during the Super NES and N64 eras. As an avid gamer himself, this was probably quite the thrill for the man known alternately as “The Kid” and “The Natural.” Nowadays, baseball fans talk about him in hushed tones as the game’s newest Hall of Famer. But starting next year, we’ll also be able to refer to him as MLB The Show 17 Cover Athlete Ken Griffey Jr.

Set to launch for the PS4 on March 28, MLB The Show 17 will let players add Ken Griffey Jr. to the game as a playable “Living Legend.” In addition to the game-only Standard Edition, Sony also plans to scout out a lot of shelf space for three different special editions:
