Yasiel Puig 5

Baseball has officially arrived with some pitchers and catchers across baseball reporting for Spring Training on Wednesday. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ first report date is Thursday, with position players scheduled to report at Camelback Ranch on Feb. 25.

Along with excitement of the 2015 season rapidly approaching, there’s a similar sentiment in the gaming community for the forthcoming release of MLB 15 The Show. This year’s game features Yasiel Puig on the cover, marking the first time in the game’s series that a Dodger has graced the cover.

Entering just his second full season in the Majors, Puig has quickly established himself among MLB’s biggest names and most exciting players; the passion he plays with was credited for having a role in the decision to select him as the cover athlete.

Recently released screenshots from the game highlighted the improvement in graphics from the 2014 version and a December trailer showed Puig hitting a home run against San Francisco Giants’ ace Madison Bumgarner.

In the game’s latest trailer, several players and stadiums are showcased, along with Puig, who’s shown legging out a double and hitting a walk-off home run. MLB 15 The Show will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita platforms on March 31. Courtesy of PlayStation’s YouTube channel is the latest trailer:
