MLB 2005 Gets A Coverboy
Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and 989 Sports have selected Oakland A’s third baseman Eric Chavez to serve as the cover athlete and spokesman for MLB 2005. Due out this March for both the PlayStation 2 and PS one, the PS2 version will feature 13 game modes—including a Career mode in which gamers can advance from a Class A team to the major leagues— along with voice recognition that can be used to call pitches and online play through 989Sportsonline.com. Chavez joins the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Shawn Green and the Cincinnati Reds’ Adam Dunn as pitchmen for the title.
