Baseball season is almost upon us once again, with spring training games in full swing and big-league players ready to step up. With that, Sony’s also hitting the plate a month out with its latest diamond-running sim, MLB 12: The Show. As in previous years, it really knows its authenticity, and inserts it into every frame of the game, from the crack of the bat to the mad scramble around bases, with players making crack decisions about stealing bases or running for home. But they’ve been doing that for the past few years. Does anything really stand out to make this year’s game different? Yep, but not all of it is for the positive.
