“Printed History” MLB The Show 24 presents the Negro Leagues Edition

February 6th, 2024

Before radios, television sets and the internet, physical newspapers were the primary source of news and information. Black Newspapers and the Black press not only documented Negro Leagues history, in addition the newspapers were also a source of pride in the black community. (You can learn more here!)

Without these newspapers and the pioneering baseball writers, the Negro Leagues wouldn’t have survived. They preserved this often overlooked chapter of American and baseball history. This year’s collector’s edition theme is a tribute to those who helped give a voice to the voiceless. 


San Diego Studio x Negro Leagues Baseball Museum 

We are also excited to announce our continued partnership with The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. MLB® The Show™ will donate $1 for every Negro Leagues Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and MVP edition sold in the US until 12/31/24 to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Donations will help the Museum continue their work which is dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America. Visit www.nlbm.com to learn more. This purchase is not tax deductible.
