MLB The Show 22 features Shohei Ohtani on its cover

MLB The Show 22 will be available the same day it launches on Xbox Game Pass on April 5

Shohei Ohtani’s 2021 season was unforgettable! 46 home runs, 100 RBI and 26 bases, in addition to having a 9-2 record on the mound with a 3.18 ERA and 156 strikeouts.
