MLB The Show 23 introduced a new game experience celebrating the rich history of the Negro Leagues called Storylines. We couldn’t be happier with the overwhelmingly positive response to this new game experience passion project for the development team. Storylines wouldn’t have been remotely possible without the amazing partnership with the Nego Leagues Baseball Museum and its President, Bob Kendrick.
A few short weeks ago, plans to build a brand-new museum were announced. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is the world’s only museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.
In partnership with Major League Baseball, The Players Association, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
From today through June 30, only on US digital platform stores where MLB The Show is sold, you can purchase the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Charity Pack ($4.99 USD). PlayStation and San Diego Studio will donate 100% of the proceeds* from this pack after store platform fee deductions are applied to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
Your purchase of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Pack grants you: 6,500 Stubs, eight Sanford Greene Storylines NLB bat skins, and one banner for use in MLB The Show 23. Once acquired, items can be redeemed upon booting the game. Information on items redeemed should be listed in your profile mail inbox. These items are not eligible to be sold on the marketplace.
This is in addition to the dollar donation PlayStation and San Diego Studio will make to the museum for every MLB The Show 23 Captain and Digital Deluxe Edition sold in the United States until December 31, 2023. These donations will help support the museum’s recently announced fundraising campaign to build the new 30,000-square-foot Negro Leagues Baseball Museum campus adjacent to the Buck O’Neil Education Center. Which is housed in the former Kansas City Paseo YMCA, the historic building where Andrew “Rube” Foster established the Negro Leagues in 1920.
We couldn’t be more excited to continue our groundbreaking partnership with the museum and its goals to educate, enlighten, and inspire. By celebrating the rich history of the Negro Leagues, thank you!
*PlayStation will donate 100% of the proceeds to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum after store platform fee deductions are applied. A minimum of $3.49 USD per pack sold will be donated. This purchase is not tax deductible.
