Jazz Chisholm Jr.’s electric personality, play, and love for all things baseball made him a great choice to be on the cover of MLB The Show 23.  Jazz grew up in Nassau, Bahamas, playing sandlot baseball with friends. As Jazz puts it, “No umpires, no catchers; just hitting bombs and having fun we just played to play.” He never thought a kid like him from the Bahamas would make it to The Show, let alone end up on the cover of MLB The Show!

Today, we are thrilled to announce that MLB The Show 23 launches March 28, 2023, and will be available day one with Xbox Game Pass. The standard edition on Xbox One is $59.99 USD/$79.99 CAD. Standard edition on Xbox Series X|S is $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD.

MLB The Show 23’s Collector’s Edition Cover Athlete: Derek Jeter


MLB THE SHOW 23 JETER ASSET

Derek Jeter’s back in MLB The Show! The 14x All-Star, 5x World Series Champion, 5x Silver Slugger, 2000 World Series MVP is the MLB The Show 23 Collector’s Edition cover athlete! Derek’s had one of the best careers in baseball history and we’re elated for him to join the collector’s edition club cover athlete club.

Derek Jeter needed an epic cover, and we wanted to show him in a new light. With that in mind we tasked visual artist Sanford Greene to present Derek in a fresh new perspective. Derek’s career as a Yankee is larger than life and his cover literally has him jumping out of Yankee Stadium. Can you spot all the Easter eggs in the cover? We’re thrilled with the cover art and are so happy that we finally get to show the results of this collaboration.

Now you’re wondering, “What’s in the Editions?” First, we’re very excited to announce that Early Access is back for anyone that purchases either of the Collector’s Editions: The Digital Deluxe Edition or The Captain Edition of MLB The Show 23. Early Access in MLB The Show 23 begins March 24, to give you a four-day head start.
