It has been a long time coming, but the Pittsburgh Pirates have finally won something. Or at least one of the Pittsburgh Pirates...
Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen (@Cutch22) has been named the cover athlete of the newest iteration of MLB: The Show, aptly named MLB '13: The Show. A two time All-Star with the Pirates, McCutchen beat out sixth other notable MLB players over a five-day, fan voting period which took place last week. After finding out the news, McCutchen was more than a bit excited,
McCutchen comfortably won the fan voting contest with over 100,000 votes, beating his second place competition, Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia, by nearly 20,000 votes. This year's game will feature multiple new features, including new Franchise and Road to the Show modes. The game will also have the ability to be synced across multiple devices including the PS3 and the Vita, for when you decide to take your baseball action on the road.
The game, which is scheduled for a March 5th release, is available for pre-order right now.
