He's the latest star athlete to grace the cover of our MLB franchise following in the footsteps of his teammate David Ortiz as well as recent players such as David Wright of the NY Mets, and Ryan Howard of the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies.
Not only is Pedroia a Gold Glove second baseman and 2008 AL MVP, his work ethic, intensity, and overall game skills make him a perfect fit for our best-selling MLB game.
We're excited to have Pedroia become part of the SCEA baseball family and look forward to his participation in all facets of our campaign. In the meantime, please check out the sweet box art for MLB 09 The Show and we'll check back in with more for you soon.
