Players Can Create and Play as a Female Ballplayer in MLB The Show 24 Road to the Show

San Diego Studios released their MLB The Show 24 Road to the Show trailer and blog highlighted by a new addition allowing players to create and play as a female ballplayer for the first time in the series.

For the first time, you can create and play as a woman ballplayer, with a unique Road to the Show story that evolves with the player over the course of your career. Experience a personalized story where players can interact and build their baseball careers. This path will include all existing features of Road to the Show with the addition of a unique-to-women storyline following a lifelong friendship as it develops in professional baseball.

Both the PlayStation.Blog and TheShow have shared interviews featuring Mollie Braley, Narrative Designer, and Kelsie Whitmore, the first female player in an MLB Partnered League, member of the Women’s USA Baseball National Team, and 2022 USA Baseball SportsWoman of the year.

The things I’m most excited about experiencing playing as a female character in RTTS are the evolving interactions with Mia Lewis as her career unfolds alongside mine and all the ways the in-game world responds to my player as she makes her way to the big leagues. 

I already talked about the new character we’ve added to the RTTS experience if you choose to play as a woman, but there are so many different scenes to discover with her and her career path may change with each playthrough. That kind of narrative variation is really fun to me and I hope other players will enjoy creating their own unique experiences as well. 

We also have a ton of new commentary, MLB network segments, and other fun things that relate specifically to your player and your progress that create an immersive experience as you break barriers on your way to the top. 

A double feature is scheduled for March 7 with the ratings reveal show starting at 2:00 PM ET and the Diamond Dynasty Feature Premiere at 6:00 PM ET.

The MLB The Show 24 Standard Edition will release on March 19 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. It will also be included with Game Pass on Day One. The MLB The Show 24 Negro Leagues Edition costs $124.99 with early access starting on March 15. The MVP and Digital Deluxe Editions will also get 4 days of early access. Also of note, the MLB The Show 24 Negro Leagues Edition won’t include the disc on PlayStation 5, but will on Xbox Series X|S.
