With MLB The Show 23 getting closer and closer, I am very excited about the release. I am even more excited about the game with the more recent news that has been released about the game. It involves The Negro Leagues, and it will be in the upcoming game, which is huge news.

This will be the first time that the MLB is giving recognition to The Negro Leagues in their video game MLB The Show. So it is not just that they will be playable, but The Negro Leagues will have their own storyline focused on players. Now it is not confirmed 100% what they are about, but it will focus on the notable names involved with the league.

Negro Leagues Are An Historic First In MLB The Show 23

So far, here are the confirmed names of the players involved in the game series for The Negro Leagues:

  • John Jordan “Buck” O’Neil
  • Hank Thompson
  • Hilton Smith
  • Jackie Robinson
  • John Donaldson
  • Leroy “Satchel” Paige
  • Martin Dihigo
  • Andrew “Rube” Foster

I like that they are doing this, as there were a lot of great players that were in The Negro Leagues. Finally, they are getting the recognition they should have gotten many years ago. I hope they add to the many stories focused on The Negro Leagues for many more future games.
