MLB The Show 17 is a video game available on PlayStation 4. (Because Sony is the publisher of this game, it is not available on any other company’s gaming console.) My favorite game mode is Road to the Show. Today we are going to be reviewing the Road to the Show mode. Please follow my twitter and like my facebook page.
In Road to the Show (RTTS), you create your own professional baseball player, play in the Topps Amateur Showcase where you get scouted and determine your draft potential, and then get drafted to a major league team.You then play in their farm system and the better you perform, the faster you get called up to the majors. You get training points every game based on how you hit, ran, and fielded. You can then spend those training points to upgrade your stats.
This year, there was a new feature added to RTTS. There are cutscenes where your manager, hitting coach, and agent can talk to you, and you get different responses that you can choose based on what you want your character’s personality to be. You can also buy equipment, which will give your player better stats. You can buy bats, gloves, cleats, shin guards, compression sleeves, and even rituals that all make your player perform better!
The character that I created is a left fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays. I was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays and then traded to the Blue Jays. I am in 2018, which is my third season. (You can continue using characters from previous versions of MLB The Show game on the next year’s version.) I am using the character that I created on MLB The Show 16 on MLB The Show 17. Since my character is in his 3rd season, I will have to play 3 more seasons before I become a free agent.
My favorite part of RTTS mode is the fact that you get to play in the minors and work yourself up to the majors, just like real players. I also love playing at all the different stadiums and doing bat flips when I hit a long home run.
Road to the Show is my favorite mode in MLB The Show and is the most creative mode in the game.
