The Chicago Cubs are a week away from wrapping up Cactus League play in Mesa, Arizona. Which means it’s nearly time for gamers across the globe to battle it out online.
If you’re not familiar with the world of video games, then you have no idea what this article is about. For the longest, Chicago Cubs’ fans had to rely on MLB The Show, a Sony Playstation exclusive title, to live out their World Series dreams.
At one point, MLB The Show put together a launch trailer which put the World Series in Chicago and the Cubs winning it all. And honestly, that video made a ton of people emotional.
Right in the feels. It ended with a man watching the final moments of the big game with a smile on his face. Not to mention, an older gentleman taking scissors to his beard as fireworks lit up the Windy City.
Fast forward a few years later and that commercial became reality. Millions of people filled the streets of Chicago as our heroes cruised by, celebrating a World Series title.
Now, it’s time for us to see if we can make it a repeat starting March 28th. That’s the official launch date of MLB The Show 17 which features Ken Griffey Jr. as the cover athlete.
