They say there's a first time for everything.
And in the case of baseball simulation games, this is the very first one I've taken the time to seriously invest in as a player. For a sport that I only check out during YouTube home run highlights, I came into the Sony San Diego Studio developed MLB The Show 22 with little to no knowledge of the ins and outs of the sport. Even still, I came away from this insanely realistic portrayal of America's favorite pastime with a newfound appreciation for it all.
While there are some bugs/glitches I can't ignore and less than stellar portions of "Road to the Show" mode, MLB The Show 22 still proves to be the best (and only) officially licensed MLB game on the market (until next year's installment, I'm guessing).
