Cover for 2021

SDS

If Gallo wins the players tourney I think it goes without saying that the GOAT gets the cover.

SDS

With it coming to new consoles next year, I would be surprised if Derek Jeter wasn’t the cover athlete

SDS

I would. Smart money is on Hank Aaron.

Highest career WAR not in the game that isn't named Jon Dowd.

Yeah I know, but Jeter is probably the most recognizable face/name in baseball maybe ever thats not in the game. Casual baseball fans know Derek Jeter and makes sense for marketing purposes. Most people that play video games didn’t watch Hammerin Hank play and I don’t think they would put “Jon Dowd” on the cover

Babe Ruth is the most recognizable though. Jeter for this era, Ruth for everyone. Ruth gets the cover

Jeter's not even the most recognizable former Yankee shortstop that's not in the game. Plus, I think you're vastly underestimating Aaron's appeal.

Another thing to consider: they're not going to make the game's "star" a NYC-centric player for the 4th year in a row. (Ruth, Mays, Mantle).

I think it should be a dumpster on fire. Because that’s what the game will be.

SDS

Gallo, Amir Garrett, and Blake Snell have all three been great ambassadors for this game during the shut down. I like the idea of the winner getting the cover, especially if it’s one of those three.

SDS

It will b some prospect

Coronavirus on cover

I think this guy is a troll everyone.

SDS

The cover in my mind shouldn’t even be a question.

Roberto Clemente with his number 21 as the logo for the year emblem.

What better way to bring him in? He is beloved in all of baseball and is still a massive name.

In theory Hank Aaron is nice, you know how many people would say “who is this guy?!”

Then maybe this would be a great way to teach them who this guy is.....

Juan Soto maybe from his heroics last postseason as there might not be a season
