Set for a March 27 release for the PlayStation 4, MLB The Show 18 has officially featured New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge as its cover athlete.

According to ESPN, this is the tweet that broke the news Monday afternoon:

Judge, 25, is coming off an amazing season for the Yankees, hitting a rookie record 52 home runs. He drove in 114 runs, and led the league with 128 runs scored and 127 walks.

Overall, he slashed .284/.422/.627 in 542 at-bats.

The 6’7” right fielder is currently a finalist for the American League MVP and Rookie of the Year awards.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, as Judge is seemingly the new face of baseball.

Judge becomes the first rookie and Yankee to make the cover of MLB The Show since its first edition was released in 2006.
