Pirates Star Andrew McCutchen Grabs MLB 13: The Show Cover
Okay, you've voted and now the cover athlete for MLB 13: The Show has been determined.
Congratulations to All-Star Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen, who had a fantastic season last year and became quite the fan favorite (as you can see). McCutchen garnered over 100,000 votes in the five-day poll to earn cover honors for Sony's latest baseball simulator. A Pirates player!
New York Yankees ace pitcher C.C. Sabathia came in second with just under 90,000 votes and Detroit Tigers third baseman and Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera wound up third with around 76,000 votes. It's kinda cool to see a Pirates player on the cover, though; that team has made some decent runs the past couple of years and I keep hoping to see them make it to the postseason. It has been a while, after all; over 20 years now. The last time Pittsburgh made it to the postseason was in 1992 before they traded Barry Bonds.
But anyway, McCutchen will appropriately grace the cover of MLB 13: The Show, which will launch on March 5 for the PlayStation 3 and Vita.
