MLB The Show 23 introduced a new game experience celebrating the rich history of the Negro Leagues called Storylines. We couldn’t be happier with the overwhelmingly positive response to this new game experience passion project for the development team. Storylines wouldn’t have been remotely possible without the amazing partnership with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and its President Bob Kendrick.
A few short weeks ago, plans to build a brand-new museum were announced. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is the world’s only museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.
In partnership with Major League Baseball, The Players Association, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. From today through June 30th only on US digital platform stores (PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store and Nintendo eShop) where MLB The Show is sold. You can purchase the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Charity Pack ($4.99 USD). PlayStation and San Diego Studio will donate 100% of the proceeds** from this pack after store platform fee deductions are applied to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
This is in addition to the dollar donation PlayStation and San Diego Studio will be making to the museum for every MLB The Show 23 Captain and Digital Deluxe Edition sold in United States until December 31, 2023 . These donations will help support the museum’s recently announced fund raising campaign to build the new 30,000 square-foot Negro Leagues Baseball Museum campus adjacent to the Buck O’Neil Education Center. Which is housed in the former Kansas City Paseo YMCA the historic building where Andrew “Rube’ Foster established the Negro Leagues in 1920.
We couldn’t be more excited to continue our groundbreaking partnership with the museum and its goals to educate, enlighten, inspire. By celebrating the rich history of the Negro Leagues, thank you!
