Alright after a good 12 hours of play on the switch I can confidently say it's exceeded my expectations.
Now I will say my expectations were kept at a minimal as sports games on switch don't have a good track record and that being generous considering FIFA is the only main sports game.
MLB on switch works I don't feel like it's technical limitations take away from the game play, is it at the same level of the big boy systems of course not but it gets the job done.
As a offline player it's awesome I have been grinding the mini season and went 21 and 7 most of those games in hand held mode. It was on Vet but I don't feel I suffered cause it's on switch.
I am hopeful I linked everything the right away because the combo of a switch version and a xbox version with all the same feature and progression of DD could be a home run...pun intended....
