Ryan Howard to be the Cover Athlete for MLB '08: The Show
Easy, breezy, beautiful.
Known for his prolific power and ability to drive in runs, Howard is just the second player in Major League Baseball history to win the Rookie of the Year honors and a Most Valuable Player award in successive seasons.
"Ryan Howard's personality and work ethic exemplify what our baseball franchise is all about and we are thrilled he has chosen to represent MLB '08: The Show," said Scott Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA. "Howard has worked hard to establish himself as one of the most exciting players in the game and we look forward to him continuing the tradition of MLB '08: The Show athletes having amazing years while being featured on the cover of our game."
I'm not much of a follower of baseball, but anybody with a fan club full of people that show up to games wearing Homer Simpson masks, has my unbridled support.
