No Babe Ruth as Position Player once again

SDS

So last year a lot of us complained all year round to the team of SDS about the fact thatwe only had Babe Ruth as a Pitcher and we got zero reply to it at all. Now a new year another game MLB The Show 20 and again we only get the Babe as a pitcher. Why SDS ? Why not alsomake him available as a position player we all know and love him for ?

SDS

All-Star Ruth and SS Ruth were both not pitchers.

Might have missed the point, in 18 we had Babe Ruth as a position player since 19 they took him out and only left him as a pitcher

I think OP is talking about outside of DD. Like those pre-canned flashback teams and SDS rosters that only have him as a pitcher.

Yeah, he posted this in the franchise section, that's how I figured out that was what he was talking about.

Ah, my bad. I always just sort topics by most recent, so I usually don’t even pay attention to the category.

Same here, dude. It's just easier for me that way.

OP has a good point though. They really should have both versions of the Babe available. He's famous for both. He was great at both. I get the frustration.

I wasn’t even aware that this is an issue. I agree then, both versions should be available. Besides, I feel like most people think hitter when they hear babe Ruth, not pitcher.

Are you kidding me? They didn't fix this after a year? The have to be aware?

Im sure they are aware but its like they dont care, i really hope they do something and add him again

SDS

Come on SDS dont let us wait another year, add the Babe back in as a Hitter and not just a pitcher please

SDS

Remember, and this is important. They dont care about franchise like you and I do. Just like last year and year before that and so on and so forth. It's a shame

SDS

I'm not at my PS4 right now, but I went through the roster last night and found that there were two Babe Ruths, and both are starting pitchers.

SDS

Honestly this would be easily solved if they would just allow us to freely edit positions. There's really no reason to NOT have that option

Can you designate either as a two way player?

SDS

At this rate next year they will force Mickey Mantle into the 1B position with no option of changing. Seriously this should be such an obvious/quick fix. Like seconds of work on the developer's part. Hopefully its addressed.

Nope. You can't change existing players in the rosters into two-way players. The 99 Ruth does have OF/1B as (unchangeable) secondary positions, but his primary position can only be SP/RP/CP. The other Ruth is an 87 with no secondary positions.

SDS

Its especially ironic looking at all the menu screens of Babe holding a bat lol. What a concept!

Exactly, seriously SDS you guys need to fix this and give us the Babe as we know him.

SDS

When Babe was added to 18 with all the fanfare that came with it, I'm fairly certain none of the gameplay trailers advertised him as a pitcher lol. This should be a common sense fix.
